    I passed Day 5 guys. More motivated in other aspects of my life too. Doing things at the beginning time in my routine. Hooray!
    • What helped
      • Sleep! No Caffeine! Less or no meat!
      • Chilling with a friend and getting some much needed release and feeling of connection and meaning
      • Making space and time for self-care and converting my feelings from negative to positive+productive
    • Difficulties I encountered
      • Criticisms from loved ones about weight, appearance, grooming, career/education shortcomings

    Relapsed. Day 0. I'm going to take the loss and move forward with new knowledge. This is an experiment. I will get there as others have gotten to sobriety.

    What led to relapse
    • Sleep Schedule
      • sleep deprivation
      • bad sleep schedule and being awake at night, lonely, nothing to do
      • have to fix up room for sleeping
      • trying to stay up for 24-48 hours to fix sleep schedule --> will power is down to nothing --> very hard to fight temptation --> even using internet for legit tasks during this time =relapse
    • Checking out girls + Rage
      • when rebooting, checking out girls on the street dressed in nothing causes a lot of rage and on reboot there is no real outlet for it. gotta stay away from them.
      • rage spirals into anger/bitterness about life circumstances, negatives about romantic relationships, lack of romantic relationships --> blame game.
    • be in sunlight, eat yoghurt, and sleep well.
    What was good
    1. I displayed quite a bit of control and the focusme app blocking internet and delayed acting out for like 10 hours. If I went to sleep or something I probably would have been ok.
    2. I reached out to my counsellor and accountability buddy before relapsing. I was conscious enough while wanting to act out to do something to try to stop the relapse.
    Lessons learned after talking with friend
    1. When will power is low - Have list of reminders, triggers, written out and accessible, in wallet, on paper, in phone etc. So u dont need recall memory to access
    2. Use a tracker so you can see big picture of acting out (%age of days acted out vs not acting out), also tracks other habits that can correlate with sobriety/acting out.
    3. Depend on library computer vs family member computers when needing unfiltered internet - until you have this under control
