I loose all my self faith and confidence once triggered. I walk as though I am being controlled by a remote control .Awesome on achieving day 3! remember the time you have spent without it is better than consistent day in day out! cant wait to hear that you made it to day 4!
what are some things you like to do that may help you in your trigger windows? do you like music? the outdoors? etc
Indeed I am at least every other day. Up at 430 or 5am to be out the door 30 minutes later for the gym for an hour or 1.5 hours. On my non gym days i still wake up at 530 naturally since I am now used to it haha. Those are the drink coffee on the front porch, read a book, work on my chainmaille shirt for my Renaissance Fair outfit, etcAre you ing the club too
Thanks for your encouraging words @WinkTinkTillium .@GeminiMan I think you need to give yourself a huge shout out for the win you just shared. You stopped the behavior mid action and walked away. You stopped the full easy dopamine reward of the finale. This is the steps you have to build to ensure prolonged success. Its going to feel rough because yes the trigger happened and you gave in a little but do not for one second discount how much strength and progress it takes to realize the wrong, stop, and move on with your day. We expect ourselves to be 100% perfect every day while we fight this, there will be ups and downs like this. Does engaging in the trigger possible not weaken the neurological pathway that much, no, but it doesnt reset it completely and you reinforced progress with a changed outcome.
You've got this Gemini! I personally dont think your counter goes to zero
Yes it is ! 10 days no MOThis is great GeminiMan!
10 days tomorrow
If I catch myself trying to edge anymore I will start over counting from day 1 to punish myself for edging while not MOing .
