    As the title says, I'm back. I'm back because I feel like it's worse than ever and I'm on the verge of ruining my life. It has expanded past the computer. I need to stop today. Talk is cheap, but it's a start. I need help. So I'm here. Day 1. Here we go.

    By the way, I'm looking for an accountability partner. Someone +40 please.

    I obviously need goals. One goal is to spend less time looking at screens. Now I need a goal to replace that time with something productive.

    I'm 42, maybe we can help each other out. PM me (if that's possible on this site, I assume so but have never done it before) if you like.

    I have drastically reduced my time in front of screens, and found it's helped a lot.

    One might be the loneliest number but it's a t place to start and you can't get to anything to the right of 1 on the number line without passing 1 first.

    Thanks for the encouragement everyone.

    Whirlygig, I will get back to you very soon.

    Coming up on day 2. Think it would be a good idea to make a quick post every day for a while. So far so good. Tomorrow I am flying out for a few day so there will be more opportunities. However, my mind is made up.

    Day 3. Travel day. Staying in a motel. Obviously the thoughts came through my brain about what I would do with plenty of opportunities. Already in one-day-at-a-time mode.

    Staying with hockey.

    You will survive this. Breathe deep and drink plenty of fresh water.
  14. Welcome to NoFap. I agree about the goals. I’d also suggest some daily routines. Stuff like regular exercise, reading books, no computer after a certain time, etc.

    Thanks again for the support. I hope to visit other people's journals more often in the future.

    Today another day out of state. Was busy most of the time so no issue. To reiterate, my goal is to stop porn(and anything approaching it: We all know what those things are) and thus stop the porn-masterbation cycle.

    Was a bit tempted tonight and with the grace of God did not open up porn or anything close to it as we approach day 4. At this point I know it wouldn't be porn I would go to first but one of those other places so I could say in my mind, "well at least it wasn't porn". I know that game and refuse to play it. It ends in the same place.

    5 days. That is certainly a personal best over the last year. Feels good.
