Jay's journey to freedom

Hello everyone!

I’m a 20 years old student studying electrical engineering and I have a pretty bad addiction to P*** and M****. I’ve tried many times to stop and was unsuccesful, I can’t seem to find the reason why - but I’m trying my best to stay clean. Maybe if I will write down all my thoughts here I will be stronger because I will write all the reasons why I want to get out of this addiction and become a better person. So every day in this diary I give a promise to myself that minimum 30 days I will write a list why I want to get out of this addiction (minimum 5 reasons), reasons can be same as before but I HAVE to write them down every day. So this is a challenge for me, if anyone is interested how I’m doing - feel free to reply and follow my journey.

Sorry for my bad english but I think it is pretty understandable :slight_smile:

So, here we go. Todays reasons why I want to get out of this addiction:

  1. Less social anxiety, feel more confident myself in everyday situations;
  2. Better hair growth;
  3. Better skin condition;
  4. More happy with life overall - small things makes me happy;
  5. Deeper voice;
  6. More motivation to do anything;
  7. Better at social situations;
  8. Better focus at work and studies;
  9. More strenght;
  10. Eyes are less tired and red;
  11. Better sleep;
  12. Lower blood pressure (yeah thats for real guys);
  13. Want to get out more, enjoy nature;
  14. More peaceful mind.

Hi bro,
I can relate to so much that u are saying, I have battled 10 more years than you and trust me u are doing this at the right time. I personally couldn’t do more than 30 days and that’s cause I got all confident after 30 days that it easy to do this. Your plan sounds perfect and I will adopt few of those too in my journey. I am 4 days in and looking to hit 150 days.
