Day 11/365 was last night!
I think porn addiction is a symptom of something deeper... an addiction to lust. It's like drug addiction, but instead of ingesting something you take-in whatever sexually appealing scenes come into your line of sight or you find them in your memory. And you use them to create sexual fantasies that feed the addiction and the addiction takes over your life.
The initial impact of trying to shut off this pattern is like withdrawal from drugs or alcohol. You crave the physical pleasure you get from the addiction. It feels like there is no more pleasure in your life without it.
Keep going, let yourself feel and experience that emptyness and you will get past it over time. You will find there is a natural pleasure to life that was blocked by your lust addiction, and now you can enjoy it.
Checking in: Day 8
Day 84 Made a list of skills I have. Will review it every week and will make sure to add something new to it.
Day 8. The first day of the rest of my week!
Please post if you find any good ways to do this. I find that fantasizing is usually the precursor to my seeking out P. I don't know where it comes from or how to deal with it other than distracting myself temporarily.
The other night I started thinking about a girl I knew a long time ago back in college, and I caught myself, wondering where the heck that came from. It's like my brain, being starved of P images, started to go through my past to bring up whatever thoughts might stimulate me in the form of daydreaming.
Bwhoah, I'm feeling very sick and tired. Staying in bed actually reduces a lot my libido and I find this very helpful.
P.S. Reply BWHOAH if you watch F1
For sure. I haven't found anything to replace it with yet, but I can distract myself with sports, exercise, going out in nature, reading, and video games(I quit them but don't have anything against people that play them). The key is to do it regularly. They help to clear my muddled thinking a bit, or if anything offer something else to feel my mind. P.S. I know exactly what you mean about that fantasizing. Same thing occurs with me.
Check in my in on another day. One day at a time
a new day brings the joy of the success of the past day...day 38/365...got some urges in the morning thanks to yesterday which was stressful & hectic...anyways leave the bed soon so I'm sober as always...

I cannot describe how much I enjoyed my day yesterday with my family. Joining my dad, mom, brother and sister to celebrate the memorial of Jesus Christ's death, meditating on its meaning and thereafter having a family dinner was special. We reconnected on a level that I have not felt in such a long time.
Being a Christian, I meditated on what Christ's death means for me and I vowed to myself in prayer that I will not allow a bad habit to be a chasm between me and God.
Agree 100% that porn is just a symptom. Some say lust is an emotion. Porn addiction is a symptom of us harboring huge bundles of negative emotions such as lust, toxic shame, guilt, anger, resentment e.t.c
