  3. Those are some interesting insights. I've been single for so long, reading the posts about marriage are like visiting another planet.

    It's more looking forward to feeling better that motivates me to try harder than i have been.

    Checking in--Day 7! One week down, feels great to have the fog fully lifted.

    I don't have anything to add tonight. The only thing that crosses my mind is that surrender leads to acceptance and nothing else matters. Everything i thought i was filling my life with really means nothing. There's nothing more i have to do today other than stay clean. Everything after that is a gift and a result of staying clean. I guess. I don't want to think too much about it.

    I strongly suggest that you face the "weed" addiction problem, because as a psychosomatic drug it has a lot to do with your problems. The connection between them is evident.

    All the best in your recovery journey!

    Being "clean" adds a lot to life, you are able to have your head up high facing life, having a renewed energy that was always "lost" into the abyss needlessly. Logic goes a very long way in this journey indeed!

    Day 8 of 14. Somebody asked about a chaser effect a couple of weeks ago. It’s definitely there when I am doing cycles but I think it is beneficial to weather out a couple of story days rather than breeze through a couple of weeks without any impulse to fap. Not giving in has huge benefits and trains me not to jump with both feet whenever I feel the urge.

    I just accept them and use them a reminder to be greatfull for my wife. Chaser affects haven't cause me problems for a year now.

    Urges are through the roof today, I can feel that inner energy.. it feels really good but at this stage it's playing with me and I'm finding it hard to channel it today.

    I'll go for a ride on my Bike later, see if it calms me down.

    Just a heads up, cold showers DON'T work, at least not like they used to for me.. just caused my body/mind to go into stress mode.

    Struggling bit as well today, ended up looking at psubs for a while, but was able to pull myself out of it, and did not watch porn. Going for a walk outside helped, but also need to tighten rules as to what is acceptable for me. We'll keep at it!

    No urges. None at all.

    Feeling disgusting helps. Lol

    I'm glad i got to this point. I know it's gonna be smooth sailing from here.
    I have to be careful though. I may start to feel good again and then urges come back fast.

    Reminding myself that i am a sinner and a fornicator is what it takes. I feel it, but rarely say it to myself.
    I know this is harsh and unproductive but it gets results, so i guess it is somewhat productive. I speak for myself alone. I have never had an easy time with this particular sin and s*x in general.

    It's not that i want to feel bad, but i know i will feel much better when i get some time closer to where i was before, which is around 60~ish days.
    From there i just need to continue.

    I pray in the morning and the evening, it's easier for me to meet with God clean, than it is when i am freshly sinned.

    Oh what a mess this post is lol

    Morning all, checking in. I had a dreadful night's sleep last night and have had some unwelcome ghosts pop up from the past, so feeling a bit vulnerable today. Let's see how it goes...

    That's it mate, try new things see what works.

    I've had to uninstall all my social media, Instagram being worst culprit.

    I love walks, throw a podcast on and away I am, completely forget about the urges.
