  3. I am on a new routine waking up early and working out, I feel amazing but then i get tired at times and I notice when I get sleepy my impulsive cravings starts, I feel i just want to go and watch porn for just a few minutes to distract myself from my current state. its like a little booster shot.

    I also masterbated without porn or ejaculation, and I noticed that increased my craving for porn greatly, seems like this is the best path at the time that would do the least harm and most good in order to keep sexual organ healthy w/o lust.

    I switched jobs a month ago. Making a lot more money and working a lot less. I’m finding myself more bored at work because I have less to do.

    At the same time, my web filters are in a good place so I only have access to very vanilla, non-nude images. I don’t know if this is a flat line, but I’m bored and generally unentertained by everything.

    I’m trying to avoid being alone and now spend more time with my wife. I’m exercising more to improve my health. Meditating more. Just trying to continue to do positive things.

    I slipped yesterday. I felt uncertainty about a work project, my mind was fluttered and I went straight to PMO. If I get the uncomfortable feeling next time, I will leave the computer. It was a minor discomfort that did not warrant using.

    Hello everyone. I have still been having trouble. I was busy but I should have posted here again sooner than 12 days ago. I don't know what my problem has been this week but I failed again today.

    The only good note is that I found a setting on my blocker (I think it's new) that will block the area where I've been failing a lot lately. I hope it works. Hopefully I won't even test it.

    I'm also going to try changing some habits. I need to do better. I've done better in the past.

    I'm also realizing I need to track myself better over time. I'll use this...

    "Challenges Completed: |3|7|14|21|30|40|50|60|90|120|200|300|365|"

    in my signature now and I'll look into other ways to track myself as well.

    I can't give up.

    Don’t give up. Even in our struggles, it is better to fight than lose hope.

    Good afternoon brothers,

    Have to say satan really came to tempt me today through a beautiful coworker that likes me. However I’m not going backwards. No much regret and pain attached. This is a daily battle we are battling so we have stay prepared to fight just today. tomorrow will be its own fight. If the thoughts come in to watch porn, masturbate, cheat on your spouse or any ugly ungodly thoughts come in, get rid of them fast! If they come back, get rid of them again… Stand firm and try not to waiver. Ask God to cover and help you and then get in the chat quick and start getting help from other brothers…

    Philippians 3:13-14
    Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

    2 Corinthians 10:5
    casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,

    Posting up day 8. Much appreciated opening up space for me.

    I’ve been an addict my entire life, and I’ve tried to quit so many times and failed miserably. I have had some somewhat lengthy runs for me, 20-30 days a few times this year but I have failed and am trying a new approach.

    I use porn as an escape emotionally. I do understand what drives the behavior but the loop keeps playing. I can lose hours to surfing porn if Im in a compulsive mode, it’s all just escape. It’s gotten better over the years, 5 years ago it was daily so I know I’ve made ground, but it’s time to let it go and move on. I am ready. Day 8 and will look forward to day 9, appreciate everyone’s support and if I can be of help to anyone else please reach out! Trust me I understand what you guys are going through!

    I saw this in another thread and wanted to try it here. Yesterday I was sober. Because I was sober, I was able to exercise for an hour, spend time walking with my wife, plan our anniversary dinner, get her an anniversary card and take care of some projects at home. Being sober even for a day is a real gift. It’s a gift of time and energy first and foremost.
