    I agree with you, just even if someone quits every triggering site,social app etc. there will be allways something to triggers you, mosty its really random.
    Most of us is trying to forget about porn, and not thinking about it is keeping us from failing, but when someone or something just little bit gives us remind of porn/sexual content, our brain will start thinking about it.
    Its just a mastery, to control our thoughts, and forget about it as soon as posible, because if its not handled it will be soon out of controll and in the end we fail.

    just noticed this. Sorry I missed it. Thank you my good man. Feelings of inadequacy sum it up pretty good. Getting there. Day by day. God bless you for taking the time to show you care. Helps the old feelings of inadequacy. .

    Day 9.
    It is funny, sometimes a feel a desire desire for porn, not a urge, but a felling similar to when seeing the blue sky and the infinite (the ones who read A Song of Ice and Fire will remember Tyrion at the Eyrie's prison) you feel the desire to jump, even though you don't have any suicidal thoughts, strange, maybe a deadly curiosity it is.

  11. Day 1 complete!

    Yesterday left me feeling very tired, both physically and emotionally. Monday is one of the days when I have time set aside to run, though, so this morning I pushed myself to wake up early and go out for a tough run. I'm so glad I did. It was almost symbolic, in a way. If I can recover from the reset, not allow myself to suffer the consequences, but to muscle through and really exercise my willpower, I have what I need to beat this.

    Relapsed a few days back and haven't been able to maintain a streak since then. Although I did go to my pastor this past Saturday and thru confession basically brought up the struggle I've been dealing with. Its definitely a weight off your shoulders to share what you're going thru with someone else.

    I'm feeling the need to ramp things up in terms of my recovery process. I've struggled the past weeks getting a long streak. My longest one in recent memory was prob 23 days. I'm going to look into getting a therapist, who can hopefully share their perspective on how to improve.

    Has anyone been in SAA before? If you have would u mind sharing what the process looks like to join?

    Day 3
    I've relapsed a few days ago. I didn't watch p, but I masturbated. I had a terrible headache afterwards. I had to wait a couple of hours for the pain to pass.

    8 days. 2 days no Facebook. Was really grouchy last night. I am a bit this morning too but doing better. Can’t pinpoint what is causing it because I have made numerous changes in my life in the last week. I don’t think it’s the pmo streak. I am never grouchy at the point. I am thinking it is Facebook withdrawal. Tired of all the political talk at work and by my roomate. That’s enough to drive a guy mad. Seriously. Doing good with pmo. Was wanting to pmo to get rid of the craziness last night. I can’t do it. It won’t help it.

    Started listening to the Your Brain on Porn audio book last night. Just through the prologue. Talked about how our brain goes through physiological changes after we pmo. I don’t want that. Looking forward to hearing more of it.
