    I would avoid all social situation and family functions. Except to go to work, i did not go to any socil events with my wife for a few years. I was pretty much a BUMP ON THE LOG.

    Hey I-AM-A-MAN - I've just been reading through your journal here and wanted to say how totally inspirational your entries are. It's an amazing journey you've been on and I'll read more when i get some time.

    I'm just starting a 100-day no PMO, though the O bit will have to stay for a while I think as I have a partner, though i think she may be interested in the karezza thing, as am I after reading your posts.

    I recently made 44 days or so and felt fantastic, then slipped and had a big dip in morale, energy and enjoyment of life - now I think this was a good thing for me as it's really allowed me to see the contrast between life with porn and life without. What the fuck have I been doing all these years?

    Good luck my man and keep strong, you're doing great things.

    Hey I-am-a-man. You are doing awesome. Thanks for all the encouragement and knowledge on quitting smoking. I have finally managed to get over the hump and kick the butt.

    Day 73 NO PMO

    Thanks everybody for posting here! I am trying to keep up with everybody's journals but I am running out of time! I have to travel later this week and crunched at work. Under much stress and about an hour ago I had a LIZARD brain thought that a little P MO would relax me! My lizard brain is trying to convince me to PMO. what a filthy little bastard.

    Staying strong

    Don't listen to that lizard asshole. He will ALWAYS steer you wrong. I know you know that.

    Stay strong, man.

    Hey I Am A Man. I can relate to being busy with work, so I'll keep this brief. Just want to say hello, and nice job on how you encourage people around here.

    Thanks for saying this. This is exactly the person I want to become. I feelthat if I'm successful with no more PMO, I will make peace with God and all will be good.

    You are doing great, I am a man!
    Listen to that voice, be very alert and aware of what is going inside of us.
    That is the way.
    Keep alert and aware.
    And just say "no, thanks" to that voice.

    Keep walking!

    I like that bit of advice in the previous post. "just say no thanks to that voice". Its easier said than done, but it is the key.

    DAT 74 NO PMO

    justforkicks, pilgrim, OneMore Chance, cadcard, Arthur, Zman!

    Thanks so much fellas for the support. Last night, I took my first col shower in well over a month! Then I took the dog for a long nighttime walk on our favorite trail. That dog has saved me so many times! Best friend indeed!

    The lizard brain urges came up out of no where. i was actually caught off guard because I have not even thought about porn in well over a month. I am stressed about the trip because i have yet to finish my work!!!

    I'm heading off to vacation with the wife. I will not be back for a week.

    Until then, stay strong!

    Well done IAAM.

    The lizard brain got the better of me yesterday. I hate it with avengance and wish i could physically kill that voice in my head. It just whispers to me and then all i can think about is what it is saying to me and nothing else. It just switches off your rational brain and puts you into a trance and once you wake up from its spell you just hold your hands in your head and want to cry.#

    Stay strong brother, your doing fantastic. You are a ALPHA MALE, you are a MAN!

    All the more reason to keep me motivated to stay away from the MO, just the way I've been staying away from PMO! Great progress MAN, fellow Alpha Man. You're arm wrestling with the PMO cravings, and you're always winning one day at a time. Have fun on that vacation!

    hey there I-AM good to hear you are doing well. Keep writing, at least for me it keeps me with the program. Good o hear you got rid of the porn. No need for it, its unhealthy, degrading and a stress producer (as opposed to a stress reliever). Look forward to seeing you post your Day 16.

    Lizard brain is an asshole and has no regard for your well being. Kick his ass. You are stronger.
