    I've rebooted what seems like hundreds of times over the past 4-5 years but have always fallen back in the trap. I think this platform will allow me to reflect on my thoughts and connect with others who have similar struggles.

    I haven't watched porn since May 3. I find that if I have too much down time on my hands that my likelihood of watching porn skyrockets. During the work week I'm very busy and active, but some weekends where I don't make many plans is where I usually slip up. Hopefully when I'm feeling as though I may break my streak, I'll come to this website instead and find strength in numbers to resist the temptation.

    Here's to a better life, and taking things day by day.

    So far I've got 1 week under my belt. It's good to track progress and to share it with others. Definitely feel as though I have to stay strong, not just for myself, but others as well.

    I've been going strong lately. Trying to remember the positive and eliminate the negative.
    Each week I will be thinking about a specific reason why I'll stay on track. This week I will be focused on thinking of my future family and what sort of husband and father I want to be. Would they be proud of someone with a deeply engrained addiction. Would I want the same for my kids? I don't want them to go through the same things that I've gone through as a result of porn. I will think of this everyday this week and stay strong for my future self and family.
