Sorry for your recent struggles. Please, don't beat yourself up about it.
10 days is good but not good enough
Cause: Social media triggers.
I have to correct a couple of statements, if I may.
days is excellent! Remember, recast your lapses and/or slips into something that's positive and works for you. Sharpen your resolve? Definitely! Always. But you won't do this by discounting time spent away from porn. 1
day spent away from that crap, in the pursuit of recovery, is already an accomplishment.
For myself, you may realize that I treat the first 4 sets of 8 days as a kind of 'red-zone', but I don't give it too much thought, as I don't want to set myself up for failure. But I simply use that time to sharpen my vigilance, my focus, my resolve. I use this time, too, to assess what's tripping me up, and how I can change it.
Managing an online account for a client, I believe you're saying. Then you mention boredom, trends, comments... That sounds like an area to address for yourself.
But one important thing you say here is about the cause. If I can rephrase that to say,
Until we place the cause at our own feet, we can only continue disempowering ourselves and giving too much power to the habit, and external things like social media, Twitter, and 'triggers'.
No. I did it, it all came from within myself. These outward things were cues, perhaps- 'triggers' if you prefer- but I did it, I alone. Likewise, if I stand, if I dismiss the urges successfully, that too was all me, all from within myself.
I stand or fall alone, and nothing else can make me go right or left.
Rooting for you, Chris, always!
