Joel said:Sounds good, Phineus! Seems like such a small tweak. But this habit change was a huge gamechanger in my recovery.
Thank you, Joel, definitely! It sure is helping me now, but I have to remain vigilant.
Along that line, I perhaps had my most serious challenge last night, since my last episode (11/6). I had some urges come up as I lay in bed, and it seemed a little strong. I knew that if I acted on them, even a little, I might be embroiled in a full on episode. It was, again, around social media- Youtube. It wasn't anything overtly sensual, but I could tell I was affected by it. It goes to show that I have to apply more vigilance, and give this thing no place in my heart, or habits.
The urge passed, as I didn't respond to it, as I lay in bed for sleep.
I did make assessment if there was anything I needed to 'unlike' or 'unfollow' in various social media platforms, or anything like that- not in a legalistic fashion, but in a serious 'NO!' to these behaviors.
