    Holding the Fool (me) to Account

    ... and just like that last night my wife asked me in the course of a coversation about addicts, whether I had "beaten my addiction". Here's how it went: Wife: "Did you beat your addiction?" Me: ... "Yes, I have." Her: "How did you do it?" Me: "I realized that when I'm camping in the wilderness...

    Holding the Fool (me) to Account

    If I had the means I would have turned into this guy: Yep. Dream life. My porn induced fantasies would fit this perfectly. I guess this guy actually acted out on it. He's had a REAL life of constant novelty and...

    Escape and never come back

    It's time to try something different for sure. Contact SA - what is there to lose? You go a few times - if you hate it you can quit anytime... I like this quote: “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.” - Apparently something Einstein liked to say. If...

    Enough is enough

    I love this. The way you describe things with your wife isn't too far away from what it has been like with mine at times. I always kidded myself that my PMO didn't affect the relationship. But how could it not? Really! I think when we see these tremendous benefits of quitting it makes it so...

    Porn is not an option

    That's it. That's exactly what my realization was last summer. And it IS easy now. Because porn is just not an option. I never consider whether I should give in. It's just not on the table. Thanks for sharing that @Blondie .

    Porn is not an option

    You're becoming an alpha male! :) ... good thing you've worked on your inner strength to be able to cope with the energy and responsibility that comes with that!

    Hardwired from self-destruct

    I wish I had done it when I was 25. I tried starting from when I was 18... blew right past 25, and 35, but at 45 it may be sticking. Longest I ever quit at 25 was two weeks! ... so good for you! Keep it up and start a better life while still in your prime! :)

    My Personal Struggle: Using PMO to Cope with my Failures and Shortcomings

    There's plenty of examples of "ugly" people finding love and acceptance. First we have to accept ourselves. We have to find what there is to love in ourselves. We ALL have beauty within us. Then, realize that your target for friends are not those judging people by their appearance. Some do, but...

    Holding the Fool (me) to Account

    LOL. I love that analogy. Yep. Let the weeds grow. And you are totally right. A part of me thinks exactly that a good old porn party is called for... how how nice it was! ... I can't quite remember the misery that came along with it.

    Moving forward!

    Hey, man. I hope you find a way to some more positive thinking! Breaking those mental cycles is a key I think. When I look at your very helpful coloured boxes it looks like a bit of a pattern to be very mindful of... less and less green and more borderline. Don't let the red take over! Have a...

    Holding the Fool (me) to Account

    Today I foolishly decided to "check" if an old site I used to go to (the worst of the worst by the way) is still there... it wasn't. But I quickly found a few alternatives and snooped around a bit. That totally defies my ironclad law of doing NOTHING that goes in the direction of hunting for...

    I know that feeling... Lol
