    Amazing realization: When I peek, I fap. When I don't, I don't. Who knew?

    ...If you do want to save your marriages, jobs etc, best you stop the pity and call it what it is and fight.
    Fight hard.
    It's a dirty fight but a fight for your life and comes with great rewards.
    Please believe me when I say this. I know it is all incredibly difficult and we don't always want to risk it but we have no choice....

    An alcoholic who has stopped drinking can be just a “dry drunk” if mental attitude isn’t changed as well.

    "Positive liberty is self-mastery - the rule of the self, by the self. To have positive liberty is to take control of one's own mind; to be liberated from irrational fears and beliefs, from addictions, superstitions and all other forms of self-coercion..."

    Consequences on our acts are based on choice alone.
    Choose wisely, or it will be chosen for you.
