    Regret is actually powerful and necessary for changing behavior, so that's good. Regret is healthy, but do watch out for guilt and shame, because these can sabotage successful attempts at change! Confessing your faults and practicing your faith are good tools for overcoming guilt and shame.

I need to stop being reclusive...

    Exciting days!!

    Do you want a higher counter streak, or do you want to heal? There is no such thing as porn. Porn, and porn substitutes, are actually the same thing. They're both porn, or both not porn, depending on your perspective. The problem is inside, in your mind. If you're addicted to porn, you need to...

    Breaking the quit and relapse cycle

    It sounds like the antidote here is to work on wishing others well in their relationships and being happy for their happiness. Feeling like you're behind comes from worry about oneself. This isn't to judge, it's a habit we all learn. I used to be so unhappy and miserable when I worried so much...

    Over 120 P free. Need help

    No, you have not wasted anything. Recovery can be a long process, and it sounds like you're not out of the woods yet. It might help to try to let go of your sexual performance and erections for right now, and to keep moving forward. Easier said than done.

    Behold, I'm Yours

    I second @KetchupDrool on having purpose. It's helping me a lot this time around in my recovery to have a positive drive to pull me foward. Personally, I have my Buddhist practice that gives my life purpose, helps me to transform my mind, and gives me something outside and beyond myself to...
