    I'm on day 9 and I feel great! Day 1-3 were so far the most difficult for me. I made some important discoveries that I wanna share here when it comes to social media:

    Whenever I log onto to Facebook, Instagram and such I don't really know what's coming. Because social media are runned by programs that send me information that it thinks I wanna see. And if I have been searching for P, erotica and such online this information is sent to social media, and will then create ads related to that. Ads, commercial are proven to work, to speak to our subconscious mind, we can't deny that. I guess most people knows this. But for me, not always easy to keep the awareness on a strong enough level when I'm online. Social media looks innocent on the outside but trust me it can be super dangerous for this process. And that is because I'm not in control of what is coming when I log in, maybe it's an ad for something that dosen't look dangerous, like an ad for dating, or it can be one of those "friend" request from a hot girl who links to P.
    Whatever it is, it's a potential trigger that can lead me in to temptation.

    My point is that I have to take control over my habits online, and social media really dosen't let me do that. So my decision was to delete them all. I decide what I wanna see online, not some ad generating robot. Im in charge!

    :)

    Thank you all for this great forum.

    Congratulations man. I gave up that shit along time ago, its crazy how much we "think" we need something in our lives till we cut it out & see we can get along just fine without it. We all came in this world with nothing but too many of us forget that.
