    First post in three months I have to admit the last 6 months or so I got off track I didn’t have that desire or enthusiasm that I ha at first. I’ve spent the last few hours reflecting and reading every post I’ve ever put on this forum. Tbh I haven’t been happy with my life I’ve plateaued in every area work, dating, working out, just really burnt out lately. I know this journeys worth it. Well for probably the 50th time in the last two years the counter starts again

    We have to constantly reinvent ourselves until we find a formula that works. Being on the other side (now), I can tell you that it is worth the trouble. Maintain the grind!

    Take care!

    Haven’t been on in awhile so I figured I’d come back to update. Past 6 months have been up and down probably relapsed about 12-15 times I got away from where I was a year ago. Currently stuck in the 2-3 week relapse loop but I know I can do better I’ve had streaks going much much longer. Gotta keep trying and stay consistent I want to get through the rest of the month clean and build momentum on top of that!

    @CidGuerreiro nice to hear from you again Man! I’ve been up and down tbh. Had a lot of months where motivation was low and feel into relapse vile every 20-40 days. I’ve stayed consistent in my almost three year battle with PMO. The last couple of months were key looking back i have decided to commit to taking this to the next level. I’m no longer satisfied only going 1-2 days a month with PMO. I need to start accepting I need to go 0 days per month with porn. I’ve come a long way but I realize now this is a life long thing and going all the way or go home. No more relapses no more excuses I will not PMO but I will take it one day at a time. I took a long break from the forum but I realize I need to come back and begin this journey again but this time with much more experience.

    Nice to hear that. I've also been on and off the forum, sometimes we simply don't have much to say in here. The determination to not PMO again is a great thing to have, but what other habits are you changing in order to accomplish that? IMO it's very important to work on things that tend to lead us to PMO, whether it's too much free time, sleeping habits, lack of exercise... It's all connected, really.
