    Those were my thoughts before the last relapse. It takes quite some time to set yourself in this way, meanwhile for shorter periods when you are able to concentrate on this thought you can see things for what they are and especially for what porn is-pixels on the screen.
    The problem is when your concentration on the new way of thinking lapses you tend to return to your old reactions to the stimuli.

    Thanks for your response, and I get every word of it. It rings true for me as well. I absolutely still get reactions to "stimuli" (it's so unfortunate that I must use that word). It pains me on one level when I see a woman dressed a certain way (don't want to paint particulars here) and I immediately feel the rush. There are so many facets to that (how a woman dresses and how I react), but this is just me and I won't go into that.

    I am have become very stable in my mind by just avoiding triggers. That is where I am right now. I avoid triggers like the plague, but I maintain a healthy disposition, partly because of the sentiments that you quoted from me. Whenever I feel that the rush is starting to consume me I stop everything for at least a week, an immediate response. No contemplation. I see it, I act. I don't debate about it with myself, because logic is on the side of sexual desire for the P-addict, unfortunately.

    i´m sorry to hear bro :(. well, you did great, and you´re still doing great! some bumps happen along the road. in fact, nothing can teachs us quite like a fall.

    i will add 2 things to your plan:

    1- stay accountable daily, here or with an AP. accountability is one of the crucial procedures to overcome an addiction. because accountability exposes the addiction, and the addiction needs secrecy to thrive.

    2- not only you need to work on detecting and stopping fishing right at birth, but it´s also good to recall your personal values. who are you? what values do you defend? recall your values daily. the more you recall then, the more you will act aligned with them. then, you will naturally integrate that objectification is a gateway to porn, but also an foremost, a detrimental behaviour for you and society.

    other than that, congratulations my brother!! you did great, and you took a huge step in your recovery progress :).

    now let´s get out of Barad-dûr ;)

    that´s good enough bro. nothing can beat honesty :).

    yeah, there´s a lot of unknown days ahead but that´s what progress really is about, in fact that´s what life is about :). Confort zone sucks ass :D.

    also it´s important to believe that your life will become better in this path. believing one can be free from the PMO chains is crucial for success. so believe my brother, and you´re halfway there ;)

    Checking in brave Fellowship!! :)

    I detect on Sundays there´s usually a drop in members logs on the thread. so i hope this is due to members not being at home (or disconnect from internet), than due to lack of accountability :D ;)

    For me, today, finally a calm day, no turbulence or triggering situations. keeping myself active and resting when needed :)

    The following members are strong on their paths. Congratulations!!! :)
