Hey Guys

So I'm on day 7 of not watching porn. Honestly I don't miss it one bit! This to me already feels like an achievement.

Today I didn't have morning wood, but the last couple of days I had it every morning. So I won't make a big deal of that. It's probably related to my irregular sleeping pattern lately. For example on sunday I woke up at 10 a.m. with 4-5 hours of sleep and on monday I woke up at 7 a.m. with 5 hours of sleep.

A very positive thing is that I wake up a whole lot easier. So when I woke up on sunday I would have normally slept till 12 a.m.

Another thing is that I also had a very strong arm pit oder. Just like when you excercise. But I can only see that as a positive thing, since I think that it is related to testosterone.

Although I still feel some apathy towards women I meet during the day, I can already feel things changing. When a girl makes eye contact with me, I smile and feel great. I also notice a lot more women looking at me. Weird, but I'm not complaining :).

The only downside now is that I'm sleepy due to a lack of sleep from the previous days :).

I know from a psychologial point of view that it takes 21 days to break an addication so that your brain can form new synapses. I'm really curious to see what changes I will experience in the future.

I'll keep you guys updated.
