Starting again for the last time!
What is the last time? The final countdown? The final streak to end all streaks?
Little tip: Don't do this. Don't give yourself those ultimatums. Because in case you relapse again you will have broken your word, your own standard. Now you have two problems: a porn addiction and you don't trust what you tell yourself.
Addicts and neurobiologists who work with them have figured out that the best way to tackle an addiction is on a day by day basis. Tell yourself: Today I won't watch porn. What happens tomorrow is none of your concern.
That way the process of getting rid of your addiction is a series of small victories with the occasional loss. Instead of big loss after big loss because your goal is to quit forever each time. That attitude shift can do a lot for you.
I tried this many times, but it ends to a relapse (it does not mean that you relapse aswell), but in my case it ended always to a relapse.
It‘s better to take it slowly, for example put 7 days as a goal when you reached it put 20 days when you reached it put 30 day then 50 and so on.. it works a lot better for ME, but we all are different. So we all have to find our unique way out of this.
Stay strong brothers

Forget streaks and counting the days. Waste of your energy. Just do your best every single day. Learn. Grow. Seek help.
