    I’m feeling that today. So physically horny and tempted. I know if I wait it will get better.

    This is how you say, you have to wait and hold on. It helped me a lot to have other things to do, good achievable goals to dedicate our time and effort to.

    Played online games with friends. Decided to do peloton after and that took away some of that restless energy.

    Relapsed today and yesterday. Was so angry after yesterday's relapse, even though consciously I knew it wouldn't help

    Next week I'll have more free time so I'll try to spend more time meditating, and doing the 12 steps. I'm also spending time trying to understand more my fears, my resentments in order to find solutions to that. I just take my computer, open a Word file, and write how I feel about it and what's the cause. It's been really helpful so far

    Keep doing that hard work. It will help you understands the emotions and experiences that trigger you and meditation and self awareness can help you overcome those triggering moments.

    I almost gave in today. I was whiteknuckling and feeling the physical urges today so strong. This is the first time in a long time I have felt urges and not just give in immediately. I don’t have to give in and I will be okay. In fact I will be better. I have one week and it wasn’t easy.

    Congratulations man. That's a great success to be able to not give in to a strong temptation. It's great to hear that

    Yes it helped me identify the triggers. Day 1 today. But I know I'm making progress. This work about fears and resentments helps me to know myself better and to improve myself.
    Also, my sponsor gave me some really good insights today about forgiveness

    I have 8 days and it feels good. My wife initiated intimacy today and I could actually enjoy it with her because I hadn’t already gotten myself off. I have to beware of the chaser effect now.

    I’m hanging in there. Hard to stay focused on recovery but trying my best. This is what I want. I want to be healthy mentally and physically and spiritually. I really want to have a deeper connection with my wife.

    Still moving forward with PMO. It is good to not be giving in to this.

  20. my feeling of loneliness, sense of lack and unhappiness is directly proportion to how much I wish and fatnasize what i dont have and feel upset for not having it. If i give up the craving and fantasy of what i don't have and accept the present moment as what i really love and want suffering diminishes and joy arises.
