    I haven't told anyone that I am doing this, but this is day three for me. I'm feeling pretty good so far, but I know that hard times are coming. I've done this before, gone three days without PMO. But now I am wondering how long I can keep it up.

    The loneliness is already starting to set in, and I'm feeling some anxiety, but not too much. I feel like I can at least get through today, and I know in some programs today is all they normally think about. I guess I have to take that approach as well. But I will try to get through Day three and see if I can make it. It just feels little pathetic sometimes. But hopefully I can do it. I don't know.

    I've got a very busy week this week, and that helps a lot. When one week is not busy that it becomes difficult. I have been working out the last week and a half. I'm actually goingto the gym thiis morning. I just woke up this morning, and I need to eat breakfast and work out before I start my day. I hope this works. I'm getting a late start on this, just having turned 40 in July. But I know I need to do this reboot. I know I need to seek recovery. I have been in twelve-step programs for eight years or so. Maybe seven. But it's still long time to try to recover and not have a lot of success with it. Hopefully this time will be different.

    This is the end of day three. I have been busy most of the day. I had a lot of work to do, and I had to lead an English conversation club this morning. I had a concert to go to this evening. So I've really not had time to act out sexually. I will have time tomorrow, so I will need to be extra diligent in trying to avoid acting out. It is a difficult time, but I'm trying to come through it.

    I understand the first few days are easier, and that the real challenges come later. Especially during the second or third week. I have to keep trying though. I have to make this work.

    Beginning of day four. I woke up this morning, and I could hardly pee. I have had prostate problems for a few years now, and I always felt it was due to PMO. I have talked to urologist, and have gotten nowhere. I'm taking medication now. And I'm a little afraid.

    But I'm still pursuing this path of absence. Like I said, this is day four. Hopefully I'll be able to get through it without any problems. I'm going to work out this morning, and eat breakfast. Then I will do some work, and I'm going to see a movie with a friend of mine this evening. Hopefully staying busy will be part of the solution. I have also put blockers on my computer, but I can't find anything that works on my phone. I think recovery really is just a decision. We have to decide what we're going to do, and then just do it, even if we have the option not to.

    Going to the Gym is the best thing you can do for yourself. Not o ly is it good for the body, it does wonders for the mind as well. I go 5-6 days/nights a week. It's my new addiction. I haven't given up masturbation, its unrealistic and a natural part of who we are as human beings.. for me at least. I have stayed off internet erotica however which has basically ruined my life. Today is day 90! I've been slowly trying to rebuild a healthy lifestyle over the last 10 years. The addiction is always there.. I just have to learn to recognize it for what it really is.. an addiction. Hope this helps. Feel free to pm me anytime u need someone to talk to
