I have to be wary.I am going out drinking with 11 people tonight,so I can't let the alcohol cloud my judgement during this nice streak I have going.
85/365 (for yesterday).
Unfortunately, there is no stopping KD. He is the best right now! I may have to accept that there is no stopping golden state unless houston can pull a rabbit out of a hat somehow. Let's see how it goes..
More than half way past my target of 90 days. I am beginning to reach a point where watching porn does not even make sense to me anymore. My biggest challenge throughout the years has been reasoning that soft core porn is not that bad and this has kept me addicted for the longest time. But after reading the book Soft Porn Plays Hardball my attitude towards soft core porn has shifted almost entirely. Also having read Cupid Poisoned Arrow, it is clear to me that sex is not about performance as is promoted by porn but bonding with someone that you love dearly. Sex is a wonderful gift not to be wasted and should be enjoyed in the proper context with someone that I love dearly.
Working on the root of my addiction is reaping results although at a slower rate than I would have wanted. Toxic shame that has led me to reject myself has been at the core of my porn addiction. I discovered this by reading the book, Healing the Shame that Binds You. I am on the cusp of starting the Presence Process, a book that author says will help with integrating the toxic emotion self into my whole being. I don't know what the results will be but I am ready for anything.
I have tried so many things to break free of this insidious and relentless addiction. What has remained constant is that acquiring knowledge by reading on self improvement, spirituality and psychology has been of great help. Without reading books, I would have given up a long time ago. I will never stop learning. It is my lifeline.

Thanks. That's one thing I do remember from my last relapse. The pain after it including the energy loss. Remembering that has helped prevent multiple relapses. I need to put more distance mentally and emotionally between myself and relapse. Right now it's day by day. I tell myself just make it to the next day.
165/365. 200 days to go!
I've had my phone off for most of the past ~15 hours and it's been great. I've felt much more present and had almost no temptation. Maybe this should be a regular thing...
Yes, I am physically fine thank you.
Day 16. Holding steady. Keep your goals in mind, and take it a day at a time bros.
I am in for the challenge.
There are things you can do to make it so hard to access porn that you won't want to go to the trouble: Leave your cell phone someplace where you can't easily get to it, like locked in you car. Use a web browser like Google that you can add an effective adult filter to. Or only use your computer in public places, like a library or a coffee shop that has wifi. Or just get away from the computer altogether. It is just a matter of how badly you want to eliminate porn from your life. If there is a will, there is a way.
That's awesome that you have passed another milestone!
4/365 Tuesday will mark 1 week. I'm finding it's easier to control what goes on in my mind and what I do with my attention. Did a hot yoga class with attractive bodies in the room, consciously chose not to put my attention on them and I didn't. Much cleaner experience than in the past.
