    Great thoughts. I always find that the second I think I got this and I can do it on my own is when I fall. Thanks for the advice

    Don't lose heart about the relapse. Confess and God will forgive. Do your best to be rid of this thing. I know you can get your goal of 14 days. Take care.

  3. Hey mate, just quickly. You don't need to tag people when you quote someone. They get the notification when they're quoted :)

    I will do a Rosary Novena with you starting Sunday:) it really is the best tool we have. Truly, how can one meditate on the lives of Our Lord and Our Lady and then go to PMO?

    Sorry I've not written here for a while. Welcome to all of you new guys:) I find this thread evidence that Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness cannot overcome it.

    Welcome @thebishone . I'll send you some links in a PM. Also, check out this whole thread. There are some really good spiritual and psychological resources in it with info on how to quit and reach chastity.

    Monday Rosary done - I am putting it forward to the kids bedtime rather than my own and it is helping me get it done (rather than fall asleep). Also, they are joining in which encourages me.

    I will stay clean today.

    Hey everyone,

    Just chipping in here. I guess this is the second serious stint at trying to quit PMO (tried for a few months last year but gave up - now back for another shot). I'm 26, male, Catholic, from Singapore (not a place in China, cuz everyone seems to think it is).

    I'm journaling on this site as well (a little hard to put up the link since I'm posting on my phone now) so drop by if you guys wanna check it out.

    I coincidentally started a week of Rosary last night (Monday). So I'll be joining that as well :)

    Tuedsay Rosary done as well. Truly, purposeful meditation on the mysteries of the Rosary can be something very powerful. That short 20 minutes of prayer really stirred up quite a bit inside of me. Lifted up everyone strugging with this addiction in my prayer today.

  15. Started Latin Rosary on the way to work but got side tracked with Catholic radio. Will resume on the way home. I was however able to pray the office of readings during a break at work. Needed that.

    Welcome @peregrinnus ! Failure is normal, vitually all of us have been there. But for you to come back says a lot. I will pray for your success; stay strong!

    Wednesday Rosary done as well. @M L I totally get what you mean. The Glorious Mysteries were just what I needed after a day in which I felt so overwhelmed and depressed.
