Finally, I'm doing this…

Day 47, no po, no mo (monk mode).

Yesterday night was a hell of a night, I couldn’t sleep till 2 am, urges were flooding my brain with porn flashbacks, I don't recall seeing something triggering or getting aroused by anything and it’s rare when it happens because I’m still going monk mode. Even when I came back home yesterday, and as I was on the tram, whenever I spotted a woman or a girl I looked away, and tried to distract myself, whereas the old me will just scan the woman's body parts from top to bottom without even looking at her face or her eyes.

So those urges just came out of nowhere I guess. Apparently, my brain was so desperate, that it threw those urges at me to see what would stick.

As I was laying there, I reached for my phone and opened Google to check on the forum to see how everybody is doing (you thought I was going to look at porn, didn’t you?? lol). I even read some of the newcomers' journals from start to finish, they were so inspiring, I just kept reading till my eyes started to close and put the phone down and slept like a baby.

And to my surprise, when I woke up this morning, I found out that I had a wet dream. What a coincidence, or maybe it’s not. when my brain didn’t succeed in making me masturbate, it had to look for another way.

Man, I’m so happy, I don't even remember when it was the last time I had a wet dream. Obviously, they just show up when you need them the most.

That’s it for me today, stay safe guys and keep your distance. God bless you all.

the way i look at it is this...
Monk mode is lit. It's the hardmode of hardmode basically. And the best (and maybe quickest) way to reboot.

based on researches i done about it, it's basically avoiding anything artificial. So no social media, youtube, netflix, tv, no fantasizing etc. Don't look at a girls 'features' when you're out. (Adopt a NoArousal approach) This one is huge.

If you're up for it it provides great results.

In nofap and semen retention, you are allowed to have sex, have a girlfriend, and enjoy everything in your life, but in monk mode, there are some limitations.

the stage I'm in right now is, no mo, no po. i don't check out women. although I still watch tv and youtube. i avoid any triggering content that may cause me to relapse. i still get fantasizes but i can ignore them easily.

that's my view on it.

Day 50, no po, no mo (monk mode).

I fasted yesterday, and even though it was a hot long day I pulled it off. I had to go to college to take care of some admission stuff while I was fasting. I came back home very tired, took a cold shower, and slept like a baby for 2 hours…

And at night I couldn’t sleep cuz of the nape I took in the day, and you know what that means. Urges were jabbing me, left and right like crazy, these urges were a bit tougher than the ones I got before, they were some really degrading hardcore stuff. It went like this till 3 am in the morning, and luckily I was still standing and didn’t give in to them.

Keep pushing everyone, we got this. God bless…
