    I've been going strong today, just taking the day minute by minute and staying out of my head about it. So far so good.

    When you feel the urge, hit that panic button! You can make it one day at a time!

    I made it to a week, which was my original goal when I started this new journal. I'll set my new goal to make it to 14 days. After that, I'll be going on a hunting/camping trip for a little over a week, and I'll have no access to porn, or any privacy to MO. That should greatly help extend my streak all the way out to 21 days or more, I just have to make sure I stay on track this week and not let anything derail my progress.

    [QUOTE = "Jen @ 8675309, post: 1719256, miembro: 63516"] Llegué a una semana, que era mi objetivo original cuando comencé esta nueva revista. Estableceré mi nueva meta para llegar a 14 días. Después de eso, iré a un viaje de caza / campamento por un poco más de una semana, y no tendré acceso a la pornografía ni a la privacidad de MO. Eso debería ayudar enormemente a extender mi racha hasta los 21 días o más, solo tengo que asegurarme de estar en el camino esta semana y no dejar que nada desbarate mi progreso. [/ QUOTE]
    ¡Buen trabajo!
    Felicidades.
    Sigue adelante :)

    Hey, that's pretty neat! I hope you will be able to stay strong during the camping trip. I've never been able to stick to it while camping...then again I'm the most forgettable person out of the entire group and it's easy to be alone. :p

    Nevertheless camping and hunting is a lot of fun! When you get to it I hope you have a lot of fun.

    Hey, congrats on the streak! I hope you can make it to your 14 days. :)

    Good to learn that you are still fighting Jen! For me, it's been hard as well lately to break that vicious cycle. I've only been clean for two days now, and the urges keep coming back...

    8 days is my longest streak in quite some time, so just keep fighting. I know it's hard but you can do it. The urges will always keep coming back, so we need to find ways to deal with them instead of fearing them.

    Dealing with some pretty powerful urges right now, so it's a bit of a struggle. My brother's girlfriend (who lives with us) was wearing some pretty triggering clothes this morning, so I'm trying to get that out of my head but it's an uphill battle.

    That's tricky as I don't suppose there's any way you can ask her politely to wear something else.. I guess that would be quite awkward.. and difficult to avoid her if she's living with you.

    Oh and congrats on making it past the week!

    Yeah, I don't feel comfortable doing that. Besides, I have to learn how to handle it, it's not like I can go through life expecting everything to revolve around me and my needs. It's a good training exercise is how I'm trying to look at it.

    True, it's almost impossible to avoid seeing stuff in everyday life or online, it's better to build strategies to deal with it.. and in the wider sense too, you're absolutely right we can't expect everything to always be how we want it, something I am still learning.

    Yesterday was pretty rough but I made it through intact. I'm hoping for a quiet day today, and I'm really looking forward to making it back to double digits again. It's probably been months since I was last there.

    Mondays are always the hardest day of the week for me because I'm relatively trigger-free at home during the weekends, and I'm not always ready for them when I get to work at the beginning of the week. I feel like my defenses are lower and then I have to hurry up and work harder to get them back where they need to be.

    On a positive note, I had no idea I was up to 12 days already. The days really start adding up when I spend less time every day thinking about this streak and reboot and just try to focus on getting on with my life.

    Yup, things go by faster when you don't pay attention. :p

    You got this, just think of the really nice camping trip you have planned! Be strong. Good luck!
