    I’m doing well, but I don’t want to jinx it by getting complacent. It’s surprising how little I miss Facebook. I still look at it a few times a week, but screen time is down about 90%. So now I’m spending more time doing yoga, and working on my week areas. Any warm feeling from something that...

    Cam Girl Addiction: From Financially Savvy to Buried in Debt

    Congrats on your progress. Remember why your doing this. Remember who is the one doing this, meaning identify with the person who has quit, and find healthy substitutes - get addicted to them instead.

    Rebirthing a positive outcome

    Rebirthing is cool, I’ve done it. But you need to retrain your mind to fight this addiction. Don’t give up. Make a complete commitment on a small step forward, and honor yourself when you succeed. Feel free to read my Turtle Journal. There’s a lot of good ideas in there.

    I need to up my game.

    Try the Easy Peasy method. It worked for me.

    **Accountability Partner Requests**

    I’m no longer looking for an active partner, as I’m only visiting weekly. As for my age I don’t put accurate identity info on the internet. Why, are you looking for someone to talk to?

    I need to up my game.

    I totally agree with this post. You could use it for an affirmation.

    My journey to be a better man.

    I hope we all have a great porn free holiday.

    Day 113 no pmo

    If you want more sex drive I recommend less MO. Maybe you don’t need it if you have a steady partner. My personal opinion is MO is part of the addiction, not the worst part, but definitely a factor.

    Thanks. I simply deleted the app from my iPad. That‘s enough for me to avoid getting sucked into Facebook p-subs. The important thing for me is to not get complacent. Porn has screwed up my life so much, I really want to avoid anything that could lead me back into addiction.

    What happened a few months ago? That’s about when I felt a big change taking place. We decided way before that to retire from our main income producing work. But when the money actually stopped coming in, it was stressful. So much was going on I lost started to loose focus on policing my...

    I’m back because my wife caught me looking at sexy pictures on facebook. I feel so hopeless right now. Ive got to stick with this forum, keep posting updates, its so easy for me to slip into denial. She said I’m using porn substitutes, and she’s right. I’m not masturbating, but I’m lucky I got...

    The renovations are done, just a few miscellaneous details to finish. I‘m also finishing a course of doxycycline for Lyme disease. My latest thinking about ending porn addiction is related to the Easy Peasy method, but with a lesson from Yoda - there is no try, just do. I’m doing it, I‘ve quit...

    Things are looking up. But I feel the journey is lifelong. My wife and I are gradually making progress. I’m doing great, no porn, and the only sex is with my wife. My arousal experience is returning to my pre-porn sexuality. The biggest issue right now is stress and overwork. That should ease up...

    Yes, ups and downs for sure, thanks JerryTX. Staying away from PMO is actually the easy part. Coming to grips with what I’ve done, and working through all the horrible consequences of it is the hard part. I can’t ask my wife to trust me after all the lies. Maybe she shouldn’t trust me, it’s hard...

    The second really difficult morning. Depressed again, but at least no porn. I’m trying to be fully there for my wife, but it’s hard when all the pain she expresses is caused by me. I feel so much guilt, it’s like a weight dragging me down. I know this too shall pass. I have to put it aside and...

    Thanks for the comments. “Takes everything”…sounds a little like hyperbole, but if porn takes my relationship with my wife, my marriage, my healthy libido (good erections), my time, etc…It’s not hyperbole.

    I‘ve been doing a renovation, so I haven’t gotten to my journal for a week. Things are progressing as before. I have a healthy libido now. My wife and I are able to work things out, and be intimate. I’m stressed by the renovation and a couple other life demands, but still no desire for porn. I...

    Some good days and some rough days. When my wife’s hurt feelings come up, she needs to talk about it with me. Although it brings up a lot of painful guilt and anxiety, I need to hear it, and not just for her. It‘s hard to listen to, but it brings me into the reality of mistakes I made. I don‘t...
