    From the Recovery Terminology page:

    PSUB: Also known as P-SUBs, or porn substitutes, are considered undesirable replacements to using pornography. Examples might include excessive use of dating websites, looking at clothed images of models, or even cruising social media websites for pictures. The intention is what matters the most. Using these things are great in many contexts, but many of our users prefer to avoid the “pornification” of seemingly non-pornographic material.

    Sorry to hear about the relapse. Feeling shame is natural and maybe even good (because it serves as a signal for when we're doing the wrong thing), but then we must get our mind back in the game and it seems like you're up for that.

    12 days. The focus of yesterday was on socialising, and I spent time with friends outside in the park from 3 pm to midnight. We had a great time but there was also alcohol there and I probably let myself a little bit too loose which has resulted in a hangover. As we all know, alcohol can mess with your brain and makes you loose discipline and willpower, so I need to be extra careful today.

    Today's morning was hard as hell, plenty of strong urges for lust, aggressiveness and damn recklessness...had a dream about driving with brakes gone in a hard to stop fast traffic...
    Watched a brilliant speech of Russell Brandt about the effects of CV19 passports on society:

    Day 111 no PMO. 111 days seems like such a long time to me but coming here every morning to read your posts almost makes it easy. Thanks for posting and keep up the good work.

    Stand up and move forward my friend, write down what you were going through and analyze what part of it was the trigger. Set up a game plan to overcome that next time it shows up. You've learned about a new trigger. Just do not binge!

    Checking in fellowship friends!

    Free of porn 215 days and free of MO 143 days.

    Good day so far, even though my sleep was a bit off! Crushed a workout, meditated and did some chores. Still about 10 hours left of the day, I'm going to spend some time outside, meditate some more, read and take it easy later.

    No relapses this weekend guys, stay strong!

    erotica / lingerie / sexy material, etc. A sub is basically something that replaces porn material. And although the addict brain says it´s a lesser evil, it has the same detrimental effect.

    Checking in Fellowship :)

    Very good day so far, went to an antiques fair with my daughter, work on some projects in the morning, and had a good lunch with the family. My anxiety is rising in the afternoon, which is quite normal in the withdrawal, but i´m ready with 1 liter of relaxing tea :D. sometimes it´s good to be a veteran on these things ;)

    Have a good day brave Fellowship and a great week ahead :)

    ...Had another strong urge right after 2 minutes long cold shower. To extinguish it I had to go to the garden and recite some holy scriptures aloud :)...and it did the trick for me ! We can find so many excuses to expose ourselves to dangerous situations only to barely escape later on.
