    Getting professional help has proven to be one of the most useful tools at my disposal. I strongly advise you not to wait, and get help now. Even if it doesn't pertain to alcohol or porn addiction, a good therapist can help you identify the underlying issues that are driving you back to your...

    Day 102 I tested myself yesterday, and it was a really hard test. I was home alone because we had a late start at work, so I went on the computer and typed in the keywords to a porn video that was my favorite from back in the day. I pulled the video on my screen, but I couldn't see anything...

    Day 101 Another day of the journey. I got super stoned and did water changes on my fish tank last night. I slept in a little bit this morning, so I don't have time to post much. Gotta run to work now, and I have an appointment with my therapist tonight. Fuck porn

    Escape and never come back

    You just said that you are nearing the point where you have failed in the past. This is a good thing, because it means you are able to identify a problem on the horizon. Now you just need to decide what you are going to do to avoid it this time. My advice would be to get away from where you...

    Day 100 I have made it this far, but I still have a long way to go. After 100 days, the improvement in my life is very noticeable, my wife and even some co-workers can tell a difference in me. I am more focused, less moody, and more present in my day-to-day activities. Next goal: 150 days.

    Yeah man, I really lucked out with this woman. She's hands down the best thing that ever happened to me. As far as the Reddit thing goes, and the triggering, I feel like I should say this: My approach to this addiction is unorthodox at best. I occasionally will trigger myself on purpose, or...

    Yessir, almost there. Although, I am trying not to think in terms of "there" anymore, in light of our previous conversations. Today I officially set my next goal of 150 days. I will acknowledge that I have come as far as I have, but also state that I have a much, much longer distance to go...

    Thanks for the support. And the same to you, I actually get a lot of inspiration from your journals as well

    I don't know what to say, other than thank you, that's humbling. I like how you put that, "seize control of your life" . . . that's exactly what we're all trying to do here. But it takes a lot of courage and strength to do so, because when we are in control, there is nobody to blame but...

    Escape and never come back

    I know exactly what you mean. Last weekend was extremely stressful for me, so my brain was begging for the distraction and fake comfort of porn. Big props to you for not caving to the stress. It will get easier with time I think

    Day 99 Feeling good today, physically and mentally. Strengthening my resolve last weekend seems to be having a positive effect, because I have had zero temptations yesterday or today. Have a great day everyone

    Yeah I'm glad too. My dogs are basically my whole life, they go to the grocery store with me, on vacation with us, etc. It hurt my heart so bad to see her all fucked up like that.

    Day 98 Holy shit, that was a rough weekend. But I survived it. If it wasn't for support from my wife and this amazing community here on RN, especially Blondie, Phineas, and Dungalef, I doubt that I would have stayed true. I'm so grateful to have made it to day 98, instead of starting back at...

    It does help to clarify, thank you. It's kind of you to say I've only had two 90 day streaks, but the truth is that this is my only one so far. But my current streak is still rolling forward, and I hope it continues to do so. I am stuck in a cycle tho, for sure. A cycle where I abstain from...

    Hey there Phineas! I don't know, but is this our first correspondence? I have read your journal entries, and you often seem to have a positive outlook on things which helps me out a lot. I agree with what you wrote so much. It seems like whenever I reach a major milestone or achieve a goal...
