    Thanks for opening up man. I know that feeling of pride after a long streak. But let me tell you, it’s possible to get back to almost daily porn if you’re not careful. I’ve been there. Multiple 60 to 100 day streaks under my belt but now I’m having a really hard time to get a week going.

    The pathways are still there in your brain. It doesn’t take that much porn and MO to dust them off and re-establish them.

    Be careful for the chaser effect and the lies and rationalizations. Don’t be like I was :D

    Stay free man! Best of luck.

    OK so willpower is not my friend right now even though it has been for the past year.

    I've been doing PMO on and off during the past few days and I was enjoying it so much that I didn't even care about anything until I had satisfied that year long itch.

    That thirst was finally quenched three days ago, which is when I finally came back to my senses and realized I have been ruining everything for a week. I felt that it's all behind me, but then I did it again even though I didn't have any more urges. I was just used to it.

    For three days, I tried to rely on my willpower to end this, but to no effect. That's why I downloaded a website blocker yesterday even though I don't trust these things. I'm wary of hacking and such. Let's hope nothing bad happens and let's hope it gets me back on track.

    My life is so good right now because I've been working on fixing it for the past year. PMO might ruin all of this and I don't think I can take anymore falls. Another fall might kill me.

    Wish me luck. I wish you all the same.

    Onward and upward.

    I've been thinking.
    What's wrong with us?
    We're fully grown people. We are not kids or animals who can't control themselves.
    Why can't we fight some simple urge. Yes, simple. We are the ones that let it grow in our minds.
    We are the ones that let this happen.
    It's all about the mindset.
    My 1 year steak happened only because I changed my mindset. I decided that it's over. I'm not setting a goal for a 1 month 2 or 3 or even 6 months streak. I'm doing this for life.
    I only relapsed when that mindset changed. It's all in our heads and we're strong enough to fight this.

    Onward and Upward
