Good stuff man. I don't game much these days but my crutch is anime, I guess it's a way to escape the world in a way. I think we all have some things like that but proud of you for making the effort! I found that living in this fantasy-esque world of porn / video games / anime sustained me (if you can call it that!) through my early 20s and even the early part of my mid 20s before it stopped. Now even if I relapsed (which I won't!) and went back to those same habits, it would definitely not be what it once was where I felt it was 'ok' -- the only route that leads to is a life of depression and regret. The more we can do to kick aside digital crap (porn, social media, unrealistic TV shows like anime, video games) the better. You don't have to be perfect per se in shoving it all out (though except for porn where it's better to not sure honestly) but the more you immerse yourself int the real world with real people, the better. I'm preaching a bit here as while I've kicked aside porn / social media and video games are a minimum (really only a social activity w/ friends and even then not often), I'm still working to kick aside anime at some point. Good job for making the effort!Had a full week at my new job, also finished off a customer job for my business, it should be a nicely paid month this month! Incredibly grateful for where I am! There is a lot more improvement to be made but I am very pleased about the trajectory. My work colleagues are fantastic and kind, incredibly funny as well!
Struggling to kick this video game habit, I believe this is due to me using games as a crutch and an escape for so many years. I'm gonna keep trying though!
Big love gentlemen

That's how it should be man, the day that you just let the clock fade away into the background is the day that this crap has really lost its hold on you. Stay vigilant but as the months and years pass without porn, you'll live the way you were meant toHappy belated 2 years porn free! Didn't even realise until last night!

How's the meditation treating you, still continuing or nah?
haha do what you feel is best. IMO meditation has been even more important to my mental / emotional well being than cold showers (by a big margin honestly). But depends on your goals ultimately. Still hitting the gym hard and putting on mass?Havent meditated in ages man! I really need to start it again
