    Hello guys,
    Things are starting to get tough for me, a lot of bad thoughts in the past few days, and I found myself looking at sexy pictures on Instagram yesterday (not really porn, but still). I deleted my account this morning as it was mostly wasting my time even when I wasn't looking at women.

    Good job @MadJackMcMad deleting the account. Sometimes social media sites like instagram and pinterest can be serious near occasions to sin. I had to delete my pinterest account for that very reason.

    Yes, I guess if I am not strong enough to use it meaningfully, it's better to go without. I really wanna try hard to stay away from temptations this time

    Smart move. I have been able to avoid searching lately, but coming up on 2 weeks soon, and urges will likely be high (as I recall from past, from other posts, etc), so remaining vigilant, not being lax about anything...praying for you all. Rosary prayed.

    started to search images that could lead to more last night for about 2 minutes and quit. Will try harder to avoid starting this and will pray that God helps guide my thoughts and my actions today. Rosary prayed, no searching this morning. Still clean.

    Well done, man! You had the strength to stop it.

    I also struggled yesterday, before sleeping I started having sex related thoughts and I indulged in them for a bit. Then I managed to fall asleep, but I feel like I should confess this

    Hello guys, sorry for not being active for such a long time. Relapsed today again. @dudeface , you're right day3,4 is a hard phase. Right now, I've got less than 2 weeks to go to my exams. Have to save all my power for preparing. Prayed to our Lord today and devoted myself to staying clean again. It helped a lot. I think, with his power, I will beat these exams and I will beat this addiction. I feel refreshed. @MadJackMcMad , props to you for your streak!!! Let's go brothers, I'm back on track! Together, we got this!

    Thanks, MJM. I started to stray again last evening for 10 min or so, but quit again. Rosary prayed this am, no searching yet today. Feel God and I can do this. Still praying for you all, esp Balatula, for strength in conquering this and your exam. Have a blessed day, guys!

    Try to post more often. Plan for day 3. I know it can be hard to do so sometimes, but I do my darndest to make a plan for the hard spots. I find it helps.

    Tonight after work I went swimming. The instructor gave us a more intense than usual workout which is what I needed.

    duuuuude, be careful with the searches

    That happens man, now don't let it put you down. Start again, you deserve better :)

    Dag yo. The searching thing is really dangerous, and yet so easy. I'm glad to see you posting here so quickly after a failure though. Keep at it, keep at the rosary. Try and make a plan for the next few days especially so you don't have a bunch of relapses. If it comes to it, haul out the dreaded cold shower. I find it kills any temptations I may have for about 12 hours.

    so far so good. reading/prayer done, rosary next. My daughter was awesome last night in the show. Looking forward to seeing her do it again Sunday evening. Wedding today will be busy, lots of family time with the rest of the family and some of our friends. Praying I can remain humble and obedient and focused on loving everyone around me. Have a blessed weekend everyone!

    Hello! I'm 27, married, and Roman Catholic. I just had a major relapse. Looking for others to stay strong with in faith and prayer! Is it ok if I join this group?

    Sure. Welcome aboard. This group was originally designed by a few of us who wanted to work more closely together. Perhaps because of the generic name, lots of new folks have been joining us. But I think that's a good thing. Most folks find it helpful to post regularly (weekly or every few days) so that others can keep track of your progress and encourage or give advice. Feel free to do t hat here. OR start your own jounal page and link it to your avatar.

    welcome, Turtle. have you figured out what your major triggers are? discussing that often helps you (and everyone else) figure out how to best combat the issues. Praying for your success!
