  5. Hey bro thank so much for your kind words.

    I started to form little in person groups where i meet people and connect in person, and i'm intending to have a more in person face to face connection, as my work is all day in front of the computer.

    Having said that this community is a gem, so much love here, blessings brother

    Day 0. Have to be careful of exposing self to too many triggers. Besides this, everything else is going good.

    I have no stress in my life, but I’m struggling this week. The boredom and lack of dopamine is really challenging for me. I find myself wanting to fantasize and reach for sugary foods as a relief.

    Welcome @AussieDC to our accountability group!
    It is customary in our group that whoever enters introduces himself by telling something about his life and how he is going with the fight against PM.

    The ranking on post #1 is up-to-date.
    Remember: Keep your counters updated!

    Thanks for adding me!
    I'm in my mid 30s, after years of trying im more determined than ever to change and break the cycle of my addiction to PM.

    I'm tackling this by changing my routine, getting active and seeking support where I can.
    I also found my faith which has been really inspiring.

    My wife and I are working on intimacy. I’m embarrassed that I haven’t been doing my part. She asked questions like “how do you even find the time. We’re together all the time.” “Are you determined or just meh?” Great questions that I would ask too if I was hurt. It’s progress that I have or answer these questions instead of us ignoring it for years.

    Sex within a marriage is hard. Sex and porn addiction within a marriage is a crappy combination.

    I complain about her breathe, her lack of dressing up, her messiness. It’s not sexy but then again it is hard to know what is sexy when I’m using porn and seeing perfect bodies and submissive attitudes whenever I want.

    Very good analysis, very sincere and accurate. It is painful to face ourselves, but it is an important part of the solution.
    As you say, comparing our partner with P's unreal bodies and attitudes is unfair competition!
    We have to reprogram our minds and put this concept into practice: if we don't have what we like, let's make us like what we have.
    Greetings and encouragement to continue!

    Well! Recognizing ourselves addicted is a big step. The company of the accountability group and reading the experiences of others helps a lot.
    And also in my case, faith in Jesus is key to my inner strength.
    Welcome and cheer up!

    Hello, I'm checking in...

    I reset my counter because I think I should have reset it a few days ago but I forgot... now I can't remember when was the last look at P. I reset it to last night because I failed to P subs, so I'll just reset it to last night.

    Last night was foolish because I wasn't having any kind of urges or desires at all. But I guess it was just boredom/loneliness, then I went searching for triggers and was triggered quickly. It was only P subs but I know it had a similar affect as if it was P. I feel very foolish now because it could have been easily avoided if I decided not to get on my phone late at the end of the day.

    Before that, I had some trouble. It seems my pattern lately is that I'll have trouble being alone, then I'll do better, then I'll be around people a lot and do very well. But then when there is little opportunity to be around people as much, I won't be used to avoiding it when I'm alone again, and the pattern will start over.

    I find inspiration to keep fighting this addiction here on NoFap and on this accountability thread. Thank you all for that.

    Good advice for a good weekend:
    "Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise." (Philippians 4:8)
    Let's focus!

    The ranking on post #1 is up-to-date.

    I have been using my downtime to squeeze in an extra meditation in the evening and I feel great with it. Much more relaxed and focused on recovery.
