    I just wrote this in the '21 Day Challenge' thread this morning, and thought that I would also share it on here as well, to reach a wider audience, in the hope that it inspires one or two more of you. It may not be new advice, but I don't think you can hear this enough.

    Even though I must have thought about it yesterday to even think this thought. I am not missing porn. Not this time around. I feel like it is because I am now getting more interested in other things, which is great! A sign of proper progress I think, and a really big key in this whole battle.
    They go hand in hand. Just giving up porn is not the magical answer to a better life. You have to also take steps, no matter how small, towards making your life better. Porn is often there as something to do out of boredom, because you have nothing else going on. Or as an excuse not to do those other things, that maybe you have wanted to do for a while. Maybe you have to do them, but just don't want to. Maybe you don't even know what they are yet! Because you haven't given yourself that chance.
    So, do yourself a favour. Gradually start replacing one with the other. Today. Perhaps just pick one thing that you have been meaning to do for a while. Then do it! Even just the start. You might even go on and do some more. See how it makes you feel. One step at a time, brothers, one step at a time. :)

    Hope those words inspire one or two of you at the very least :)

    8 days done. Starting day 9, writing this with a nice cup of tea :)
