    Checking in, day 11. Getting hit by triggers, guess my brain is craving its dopamine.
    Going to start a new exercise routine. Time to re-build my brain, train it to serve me and not sabotage me.
    Saw this video posted on here, re-posting it now because it has been helpful.

    it´s normal to feel jumpy because the brain lacks the dopamine boost from the addictive behaviour. So it´s important that you meditate or engage in any relaxation technique, daily.

    it´s also important that you have a system to deal with stress everytime that you feel overwhelmed by it. Let´s go my brother, you can do it!!!

    Of course my brother. There are lot of porn rings out there in the world. In fact many anonymous people that are reading this, probably suspects they have a porn ring. But one thing is to know it, another thing is to face it.

    No one ever leaves the ring easily, not even Bilbo, the good hearted Hobbit.

    Let´s go destroy that thing my brother. Welcome to the Fellowship :)

    Have a great Sunday!!!

    Here´s some wisdom from our brother in this struggle, JK Emezi, now sober for 13 years.

    "One of the most powerful things that can help someone effectively quite porn is just to understand how it affects the brain and what makes it so appealing. Rather than seeming like an unstoppable, menacing, or mysterious force, the addiction a person has to porn is driven as something natural and normal that’s been hijacked by a supernormal reproductive and an evolutionary reinforcer.

    Once a person understands the science between the use of porn, a person can see what it truly is: sexual junk food. If someone wants to stop eating chips, they learn the bad ways that chips affect the body and take actionable steps to stop buying these and bringing them into the home.

    Accept That You Look at Porn but Want to Stop Looking
    Aristotle once said, “We are what we repeatedly do.” This is true. Cognitive psychology has shown time and time again that your behavior shapes the way you feel and think. Action is what shapes who you are.

    If you look at porn often, you must accept the fact you do this. It may be hard to accept, but just looking at this as an addiction makes the problem even more difficult to overcome because you give yourself an external locus of control.

    Accept and Quit
    Remember, though, acceptance and resignation aren’t the same thing. Now that you have accepted it, you can begin making proactive changes.

    If you want to become a guy who doesn’t look at porn, you must start acting like that guy. This is a fake it until you make it situation.

    There is also outside help that you can seek. Someone to help you overcome this situation can be invaluable, so investigate the options that are in your local area. With the right support and guidance, you can overcome your porn addiction once and for all."
