Greetings chaps. Well nearly at the "90" day mark (hard mode) but not counting much anymore. Feeling more confident but still have some social anxiety which is pathetic for a guy my age but I am getting out of the house as often as I can and keeping busy in general. I'm going to pursue the next opportunity that may come my way with women but take it slow. I have this internal calmness inside of me and no desire for PMO or MO so far in this streak. I'm doing intense cardio once a week at the local gym and some weight training too. Hey I'm 54. I think the cardio is important even though I do some weight training and pushups at home every day of the week. Just finished reading "No More Mr Nice Guy" and can relate to it 100%. Started reading "The Slight Edge" too. I've reduced my time on "recovery" fora too, though I do read the occasional "success stories" for motivation. Clarity of thought is amazing at the moment. Feelings of loneliness are less intense than they used to be. I put myself first over the weekend and caught up with a friend of mine who was having a party. Under the circumstances and in my PMO days, I would have passed on this particular opportunity but instead took the +1 hour drive and had a great time socialising with the young ladies (and fellas) at the party. One lady commented on my "pecs" and was all touchy feely (and damn hot too!) but I knew she was partnered (partner went home earlier with their young child) so I didn't get too personal with her. Still, I got the impression she was attracted to me (I'm old enough I think to know these things). So a good boost to the old ego. She said I'll probably find a young 22yo girl (her words). You know, while that comment might have been a bit tongue-in-cheek, I really didn't care because my aim is to have a loving relationship with a lady more my own age and I think nofap has given me this clarity of thought and deep respect for women. Life is too short for fapping!
