    In my current situation I would have normally PMO. It's very late here. My wife is sleeping. I feel like I'd like a treat before I go to sleep.
    I'm porn-free only for 16 days. But I'm in the reboot process for 3 months now, with a record of 37 'clean' days. And I want to share with people that are now suffering from relapses like I did for a long while between the first 37 day record (whicj was at the opening of my reboot effort) and now. I'd like to share that the efforts during the relapse period are not in vain. Keep fighting! While relapsing, I still watched much less porn than I'd usually do. So even though it's not good to relapse, the effort still has an effect on you.
    This time alone, with full access to porn if I choose so, and with the itch for a treat, shows me how much the efforts paid off. It's much easier now to shake off the urge... It's no longer the habit of mine. I'm getting used to a different way to conduct my life.
    More so... my aim is to become porn-free, not to completely stop fapping. However, I won't fap now. I could. It's legal in my regime. But I won't. Why? Well, the itch is there, but I also got used to postpone it. Then my stamina with my wife is better when we get to it :) ;-)

    I strongly believe and feel... I KNOW... that the period of reoccurring relapses had the greatest effect on my current state. It's part of the process. However, you must not blow it! This period, if it's happening to you, is a time to forgive yourself and keep trying and making the most efforts to contain yourself. Do not disregard the importance of the fight, and don't stop believing in a better future.

    Be strong, my fellow recovering addicts.
