Congratulations Jerry! We are almost right at the same point in our recovery. Day 57 for me. Sounds like you are figuring it out. Keep killing it! You can do this. I can do this. Phineas can do this... WE CAN ALL DO THIS!!!Day 58 and feeling pretty solid. Haven't had any urges except did have to click off IG this morning due to some context in my feed. The devil always finds a way right!! Proud that I blocked and moved on quickly with out staring or taking it further with links. AMEN!
"Dear brother when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing." James 1: 1-4
Well that was a test.. I passed and my endurance is growing!
Stay strong and GOD bless this site and group. Praying for all the posts I read and men willing to fight to win this ugly battle!
This is fantastic. Glad to hear it's going so well for you!!!While I know I am and will continue to heal, I feel positive about my ability to rid myself of P for good! I will continue to read everyone's journey, and pray for success from the P demon! I will try to post again later this week but I have a very busy work week.
Its called the, "Chaser effect". Not sure how its rooted whether biological or psychological but its a common issue to have urges following normal activity. Congrats on 83.Day 83 and feeling pretty good. Had anniversary weekend with the wife and were able to have sex. Not sure if I'm the only one but usually the day or 2 after we have sex I get more urges. The urges come from thinking about what we did vs. P memories which I think is good. However it leads me to want to M at those thoughts. I don't want to do this and I am unclear in my mind if this is "good" or "bad". Good news is even with the urges I have not even considered turning to P! I feel so much more connected to my wife at this point in the journey and our sex life has improved. I also feel more attracted to her than ever! I feel confident that 1 week from today I will make it to 90 days without P!!!! While the journey will never be over, I can't think of a time in the last 15 years I have gone this long (WOW THAT WAS EMBARASSING TO WRITE!!) I hope everyone had a great PMO July 4th weekend! Stay strong brothers!
