    Turning 32yo this month. 6 months clean in three days. I haven't been this much at peace with myself all my adult life.

    Yes, at all costs.
    I'm being able to stay away from even peeping the websites i used to visit. After a week without PMO I'm starting to notice girls more.
    Last month is when I started my reboot and rewiring process, so I do not have much comparison. I am doing a lot of progress in realizing why am I doing this, what should I do and what should I avoid.
    Yes. The forum helps a lot with that.
    The scientific articles on YBOP truly scared the shit out of me. I realized how bad is what I did to myself, to my mental health and to my social capabilities. It is truly the time to revert all this and going back being an extrovert young man.
    I need to learn how to handle sadness , boredom and loneliness. I need to embrace all these feelings and find a new way of managing them which does not require to anaconda grip my peepee and masturbate to fatigue.
    All of the above. Plus alcohol and weed.
    I'm starting to force myself into talking to all the girls I can find around me. Plus I go to the gym daily, and I'm trying to actually focus on what I'm doing when I do whatsoever.

    Boredom can be a gift, if you are a creative person.

    All the best to your recovery from a fellow Aesop Rock listener ;)

    Turning 32yo next week. I'm also about to crack 200 days away from PMO. Time flies... This will be the first time in my life to have a girl by my side while having birthday. I'm a bit nervous yet positively excited. 2019 has been one of the best years of all my life so far. I'm very thankful for everything that happened this year.

    Hey guys, i'm new here and very excited to start my journey, as with every time I've attempted to quit. After reading some of the success stories and journals I feel optimistic. I'm a little late to the party for porn free in July but I will ride out the rest of it free of porn. I'm not quite sure what all the acronyms are but i'm sure i'll pick that up along the way. It's funny sitting here on the couch thinking about being porn free, it's as easy as just don't look at it. I'm so guilty for criticizing other addictions and saying just don't do it. Well here's to the rest of July!!!!
