    Weekly checkin:
    Lowest level on the Faster scale this week was Ticked Off (fantasy & gossip), mostly this weekend due to meeting old aquaintances. I fantasise about female friends (not single) because I am looking back for that surrogate mother rather than looking foward to autonomy. This means I am not free when I meet friends. I am like a slave, crippled by an unnatural desire (which I know is terribly destructive to not only our friendship but to their relationships and marriages). A lot of my childhood trauma comes from a broken marriage, so why am I looking to pass on this suffering? Is this pathetic desire really worth it? Of course not, but this is the double bind - addicted to the fleeting intimacy of lust vs destruction of others' (and my) happiness.

    What to do? Firstly resolve double bind by leaning into the pain rather than leaning into the pain-killing fantasy. The pain is from an intimacy disorder, in fact the pain is simply a growing pain which I try unsuccessfully to medicate with an intimacy disorder. I commit to you now reading this that I am going to lean into where the most immediate pain manifests itself and that is procrastination. I will do the menial tasks which have been hanging over me for ages in place of running away.

    This week:
    • I checkin on FF every day
    • I do a todo list
    • I lean into the discomfort of the task at hand
    • I practise BRACE when the urges or fantasies arise
    • No bawdy talk with female colleagues
    • No streaming or flicking channels
    • No vanity - lean into reality

    was at a friends birthday party last night and hung over today. Need to be careful as this would be classic PMO scenario for me in the past. Going to keep busy

    Day 31 no PMO. Spent the day with family and friends so no urges at all for me. Today I volunteer at church and then hope to relax around the house. Should be a good day.

    Checking in Fellowship Friends!

    110 Days Free of PMO.

    Good rest today, pushed through the fatigue/anxiety yesterday and successfully did what I set out to do and more, even felt better as I was doing it. Although on "staycation", I have some more plans today and intend to continue the same path today. I really want to make the days count and I want to be free of what ails me for good.

    Stay Strong!

    @breaking-myths Think of the weeks you have gone through as the practice of your habit, now faced with adversity of

    @Anew2019 Try your best to really dive deep into what lead you to a relapse. Analyze and execute an action plan against it. Try your best not to binge.

    @Lone Skeleton Congrats on achieving a week!

    @metamorphosed Think of it as part of the process, you are now face to face with your emotions without numbing yourself. Just observe, emotions are never permanent.

    @daddyG1981 Do your best to follow the protocol that lead you thus far, if you need to step out of the house, do so.

    @Kairose Congratulations brother! Both on your achievement and deciding to workout once more. In my opinion it is so crucial to developing oneself.

    Please be strong! Emotions come and go. No matter how dark it seems, soon it will be brighter. It always is. Life is wavy. And no matter how far we are, we care about you. :emoji_heart:
