Overall, I think I'm doing OK. One thing I've noticed with this latest period of abstinence from MO (and other such periods before) is that even though people say resisiting the urge to masturbate to orgasm becomes easier after about 3 weeks or so, that's not my experience. My experience is the exact opposite - I go through a flatline phase for about 2 or 3 weeks, and then it becomes much harder (no pun intended) to resist. After about the 21 day mark or so, I start walking around with erections all of the time.........this time around is no different. Also, if it's true that girls gravitate to us more the longer we abstain (which has certainly been my experience) then it becomes even harder to resist the urge. Sure, you could try to make a move on someone, and that may take a few weeks or even a few months, but you could also go home right and now get one off. So it's a struggle, truthfully.
That being said, I am bound and determined to remain disciplined and not succumb to my desires. I have to AT LEAST break my previous record of 29 days, although I'm really aiming for 60 days. Also, I'm still having porn flashbacks in my dreams. Happens at least once a week ever since I first began this journey way back in early October. If I don't dwell on it for the first five minutes or so after I wake up, I'm usually fine, but it is tough to resist the urge to masturbate to the porn flashbacks I just saw in my dreams.
