Day 1 / 30
Don't give in its not worth it, it never is, you've got this mate
-- Day 5.
THURS DAY 8/30
The short term goal is 10 Days...
Felt pretty good this AM. Waking up with morning wood and good to know that this PIED is just that, porn-induced rather than circulatory or mechanical. PIED is psycho-physiological, so again the bright side is that we can make change through habit and action. No drugs will cure what we have but that's also the bright side....WE DON'T REQUIRE DRUGS.
That said, I have some free time after work and had urges. That's one of my triggers - IDLE TIME.
IDLE TIME leads to PMO or worse - looking at escort/massage ads which gives me just as bad of a dopamine hit.
Therefore, my IDLE TIME is a lack of PLANNING/STRUCTURE. My weak link is not keeping busy.
Step one is to be aware and recognize your triggers. What are yours?
Daily check-in, on day 11.
Check in day 3/30
Check in Day 8.
Day 2 / 30
Man, Steve. Good point about triggers. It's a good idea to explore what triggers us. Sometimes it's not so obvious. For me, it's definitely boredom. When my heads not in the game and I need that stimulation. Sitting at a computer is a big one as well. Especially my work computer. Feeling that chair and the mouse in my hand. It's all wired into my brain. Thankfully that can be rewired. Keep staying vigilant. Rooting for you and those 10 days and beyond.
Where is your focus? This past week or so I've been trying to be very conscious of where my eyes are looking as well as what my mind is dwelling on. I joined a gym about a year ago and have been working out regularly during the week. It's definitely been a huge help to me in so many ways. However, I've noticed that because my habits with porn that my eyes can wander at all the beautiful ladies if I am not careful. Lately, I've been getting in the habit of noticing when my focus drifts and bringing my attention back to my workout. It doesn't do me any good to look. It just gives me a little dopamine hit (which I am trying to heal in the first place) and ultimately leads me back into my addiction.
