35 and Older Accountability Group

  1. The group is currently full, but I can add you to the waiting list. Because of slow group turnover, it will be several months before we have an opening for you. Reply to this comment to be added to the waiting list.

  2. Check-in: I went and had dinner with some family members tonight. Eating a big meal has always been a trigger for me. I could feel some "relapse thoughts" setting in and I laid down for a couple of hours and had a nap. I got up and read through your recent comments and now I feel those urges fading and I feel like things are settling down to normal again. I have no intention of giving in to P and M until I reach at least a new record of 60 days. Let's do this!
     
  3. @discovery !! You have been added to the member ranking! Welcome back to the group.
    Fun fact: discovery was the first group member to receive a 90 day trophy.

    @WilBil99 ! Congrats on your 30 days! :emoji_lifter:

    That is such a hugely encouraging statement! For me it has been difficult to get past the 2-week mark. I don't know if there is a physical reason or it is psychological or both. But once I passed that, it has been easier this week.

    I think he's talking about daylight savings time.. In some parts of the world, it's today.

    @emanuel_free I just want to share with you that I read your original post in the 35+ Accountability Group, the one that you wrote that mentions the Toby Mac song that includes Psalms 23:4, the day on which you re-set your clock. When I read that post, I just involuntarily started crying like I never have before while simultaneously praying to God (I haven't prayed in years and I have never prayed with such feeling), and I asked God, if he exists (I hope this doesn't offend anybody), for many humbling things, one of which is to protect and look after the people I admire. That includes you and everyone else in this 35+ Accountability Group. I hope you all have a good day and thank you all for helping me change my life for the better. I'm on day 10 PMO, thanks in large part to the members of this group.

    Oh, I thought he had to re-set his counter. Well, I guess you now know which part of the world I am not from.

    Day 170. My desire level of P today is again in danger zone: 30/100. So I decided to make this statistic work: here is my desire level of PM histogram. The media seems to be in 10/100, but those three peaks are worrisome ... I expected a downward curve.:emoji_disappointed_relieved:
    Let's analyze the peaks:
    • Day 55: "cold day, still in bed and hot dreams tonite"
    • Day 130: "Alone in the house, still in bed, so tired, typed fap.com instead of nofap.com, nothing recommended images were displayed but i leave instantly"
    • Day 170: Hot dreams tonite, no intimate relationships with my wife in the last 10 days... and maybe there is more visual stimulation because spring has arrived in our hemisphere.
    So... the war continues in so many battles.
    I think that if I can spend a whole year, I will have experience in all possible situations, which will help me a lot to face them. It's like a duel, at least one year has to go by, all important dates, all weathers, all situations ... There is a long and winding road ahead.
    I beg the Lord's help on my life, filling me with his strength and giving me clarity in every little decision.
    Folks, still need your help... have a good week!

    No worries, you learn something new every day. I had no idea that daylight savings time was so varied around the world.
    So, everybody, Timber is NOT in Albania, Andorra, Austria.... https://www.timeanddate.com/time/dst/2019.html
