    Sundays is usually "relapse day" because there is so much freetime and often mixed with boredom can be a dangerous mix.
    Has 2 critical moments today where I was watching a movie and some random nudity scenes triggered me, but I was aware of it and turned off the movie and did something else. After 5 minutes the urge to "see more" was gone and I spent a nice Sunday overall.
    Happy and off to another week!

    Checking in. Up and down weekend but very happy with my overall outlook these days. No major urges and I'm feeling the confidence and sense of self that comes after a good, solid month of sobriety.

    Morning all, checking in after a great week off from work. I'm not wild about "going back into the office" today and feeling pretty low about it all. Hopefully I can stay strong. This is the furthest I've been and I really don't want to lose my progress!

    Made 7 days! Haven't done that for a while! Strong urges hit me this afternoon. But pushing through...

    I relapsed yesterday and started my counter from today. 2 things lead to this happening. I unsubscribed my P blocker because I was constantly searching for loop holes and occasionally finding them. The other thing was me reading the Allen Carr's Easy Way to Stop Smoking way to quit porn.

    The book suggests that you carry on with P whilst reading and by the time you reach the end of the book, you won't want to do it anymore. That's what I understood anyway. Maybe I misinterpreted.

    I'm going to continue reading but without looking at P. That last relapse left me feeling really low.

    Also I've decided to check in on nofap once, maybe twice a week. I was on here several times a day. I kept checking if anyone had commented on my status (most times not), or looking through forums. I need to spend more time doing things other than thinking about nofap constantly. Just need to find the right balance.

    Hi, I've read the rules and I'd like to join this group. Last week wasn't great for me in terms of sobriety, and I've come to the conclusion that I need help from other people.

    @Juxtaposition I am reading Alan Carr's Stop Smoking book. Is there an official version of it for stopping pr0n as well?

    Checking in after a good week. Seem to have banished temptation at least these last 7 days after throwing facebook off my phone, which made a big difference. I'll spend a few days by myself later this week with lots of spare time, which will be a good test. Aiming to continue no engagement at all with psubs even if they pop up inadvertently. Taking a step back, it's quite impressive to see all the honest work everyone on this forum is doing. Keep it up all, stay strong!

    Checking in.

    Last week started with a relapse, then a bunch of stressful things happened at work, and to top it off we had water coming into our house because of the melting snow. Not fun.

    Back on track now, but wow what a terrible week that was. If anything it is a good reminder of why I need to get my act together for when shit inevitably hits the fan. Not fun dealing with a job, 2 little kids, and a leaking house when you have a bunch of porn induced anxiety as well. Since my response to stress since age 13 has been to flood my brain with dopamine (video games & later porn), I can't say I'm particularly well positioned to deal with life's stressful events! Hoping that gaining control of the PMO aspect of my life will allow me to better deal with setbacks in the future.

    This is a version that has been adapted from Alan Carr's book and tailored for porn addiction. This website features the whole book so you can read it directly from there...
