For me, resets are becoming easier to deal with - that's very much due to this group. The biggest thing for me was letting go of the feelings of guilt, shame and self-loathing that accompany a reset. I've found that if I allow myself to wallow in self pity, my reset will turn into a full-on relapse which can last several days or longer. On the other hand, if I take the view that "well, that happened. It's disappointing and I lost my streak, but let's go again," then I'm in a better position to start a good streak. In my experience, urges come in cycles, or waves, and the nature of them changes over the course of a streak. The first 5 days after a reset are _really_ difficult, with my brain actively working to make me look at P. After that the "overt" urges begin to subside, although it does take a few weeks for them to mostly "go away". I get the occasional "spike" out of nowhere - an almost overwhelming urge to look at P. These have caused me to reset a couple of times, but also become less intense as the streak continues. 4 - 5 weeks in, the urges are almost gone and "keeping going" becomes more insidious - it's almost as if I'm trying to trick myself into a reset. I've caught myself having mental dialogue along the lines of "it won't hurt if you just take a look at this for a minute...," "remember these things?" It's a bit like I'm playing mind games with myself. Challenging, but not insurmountable. After about 8 weeks, I've found that there's a sort of background desire/want, which just keeps growing. Eventually, I can almost hear it. So far, I haven't managed to beat that. I haven't yet worked out whether checking in here every couple of days is the right thing to do, or if it reminds me of the addiction. During my first streak I was on here most days, either reading or posting, and I found that to be very helpful. This current streak, I'm taking a different approach - coming to the board when I need support or to check in, but staying away otherwise. Both approaches seem to work, I'm just not sure if one is better than the other.
