    A way back to the light

    EarthWalker you have put it brilliantly. Shame is the emotion that does not allow progess or self-transformation. Shame is very much like quicksand. Just sucks you further down while you struggle to get out.

    I need to up my game.

    Escape, I can relate to your struggles. Do not despair.Do not lose hope or feel frustrated. Do not dwell on things like " I am 30 and still caught up in the reboot/relapse cycle". Just keep moving ahead. The addiction pathways will slowly weaken and you will feel more in control as the days go...

    Adventure of a lifetime - The sobriety chain

    Hi Legal What you have described is nothing out of place. It is a typical day in the life of an addict. So many millions of porn addicts are going through the exact same thing. That is the quintessential feature of addiction: what many of us here refer to as "autopilot". It feels like a parallel...

    Hardest Part Is Restarting

    Adventure of a lifetime - The sobriety chain

    Yug relapses are a part and parcel of recovery. You will experience several relapses over the years. But each time you pick yourself up and say "I'll restart and make every day count" slowly but surely you are rewiring your brain. And a day will come when you will realise that you are able to...

    Journey To Nirvaana !!!

    AJM it's heartening to note you are on day 63. Unfortunately, that's the nature of flatline. You never really know how long it will last.

    I need to up my game.

    Escape do not despair buddy! Relapses hit any time, and when they do, they hit hard. It's old pathways fighting for life. But you can and will overcome them. Read your own blog once again. Read all the literature once again. listen to all those videos/ podcasts once again. Again strengthen...

    Rebooting trough self-parenting

    EW you are developing a deep understanding of the concept of the inner self. I suggest you read the book " The Power of the Subconscious Mind" by Dr Joseph Murphy. Also listen to some really practical advice given by guys like Robin Sharma (on how to excel in life and break free from a rut)...
