    Gents and ladies of the forum,

    This will be my 3rd try at life-long abstinence from the P word. Starting with a 90-day reboot. I'm 35 and just found out I'll be a dad again. I can't imagine one of my children walking in on me. It would probably kill my marriage. So this time it's serious.

    I might need an accountability partner. I'm completely and utterly addicted to P. My work environment makes it easy (work from home, wife & kids gone for day). Please let me know if you have any tips, thoughts, recommendations, ideas, or horror stories.

    Good luck. I’m in a similar boat with the working from home - run my own business so the opportunity is always there and I’m not sure but I think putting preventative measures in place don’t really work (eg software blocking) as that can always be switched off. Perhaps better to get to the source and take on fighting the urge... early days for me too..

    You can relate then! The temptation is ALWAYS there. I have been really proud of myself since I started the reboot. Before, when the wife would leave the house, kids are gone, it would be "go time" - Flip down the blinds, turn off the lights and alarm camera, get on my biggest computer screen and go. But since I started my reboot, it's like... my will to not do it is stronger than my "old primitive brain" that says go for it. I can tell that I am stronger than my addiction. Then there is almost a sense of accomplishment and pride.
