    Day 6 No Arousal, I feel good!

    Thanks Chris, for me the hardest days are around day 7-14, let's see how will be this time!

    Hi, what do you mean exactly? I didn't notice anything strange "down there".

    Thanks Chris, in this exact moment I'm hitting the goal of 7 day no arousal and I feel very good!
    Actually yesterday was not easy but today I kept myself very busy and I didn't think at porn at all. Tomorrow will be another busy day and I think will be easy too!

    Hey Dadoadd, Hope your having a good week and getting one step closer to your goal.

    Thanks for your support recently, it's amazing how much a bit of encouragement can for a person.

    Thanks Chris, I feel the support from you too! Every time I come here I know I'll find a message from you and this really helps me.

    Today is day 10 no arousal and I feel very good.

    I received a couple of videos on my phone and from the thumbnails I understood that those were porn videos: I didn' downloaded them and deleted the message immediately. I'm pretty sure that even a little peek, sooner or later, would have led me to a relapse.

    Until now it's going pretty well but I know from experience that cravings will come and it won't be always that easy. In the meantime I'm enjoying these days!

    Positive thoughts!

    This noarousal thing sounds all good and fine, but why are you setting up days to watch porn? That's like an alcoholic saying "I want to stop drinking so I'll stop a week at a time, then binge, then stop for 9 days, then binge, then 2 weeks, etc..". If you want to stop watching porn you can't plan out ahead of time when your going to relapse, you are going to train your brain to quit and relapse, then you will never be able to stop.

    Not a smart idea in my opinion, and I've been through that, the more you relapse the stronger the relapse is each subsequent time, keep it up and you'll never stop.

    You actually train your brain to crave the relapse and your willpower to not cave gets weaker each time, I've been doing that for three years dude believe me, I know. It's not worth it, its like when cigarette smokers try and cut back before they outright stop. There is no dipping your toes in the water here, your either all in or not.

    Hi Matt, first of all thanks for sharing your opinion.

    I think you are referring to the section "MY METHOD" in first message of this journal. This was my old method before I managed to stay PMO free for 25 days. Now my plan is to stay PMO free for one entire year and then decide what to do with masturbation (porn of course in banned for life). I think you agree that it would be utopian to say: "I'll be porn free for one year" when I have serious difficulties to reache 2 weeks, so I'm putting myself small goals but I'm not planning the PMO sessions anymore also because I realized that everytime I get aroused I have to binge to stop the cravings. That's definitely not good for my recovery!

    I should update the first message;)

    :D

    Ok, day 17 completed. Now I feel good
    Day 11 and 13 have been very hard. I won't hide you that those days I peeked some naked model pictures but nothing more. I don't consider it as a relapse and I'm not going to reboot my conter because a good streak helps me to continue in a good way. Of course I must not peek again.

    Ok, yesterday (day 18) I MOed with some pictures. I had to reset my counter.

    Day 1 no arousal, at the moment there are no signals of the chaser effect.
