Have you read YBOP?

I've been reading YBOP and I feel so empowered with knowledge not only for myself but for other people. IT IS A MUST READ. I feel like I am equipped with knowledge that will enable me to power on with my life. I decided to go onto this forum because being a part of a community that is tackling this epidemic online and in real life would help me in my own life. Let me know if you've read YBOP and tell me your thoughts.

Its funny when I read this because I slipped up last night. I realise this needs to be is a conscious effort on my behalf when it comes to stopping everything. Its hard and sometimes and I put myself down but I realise that I have infinite worth and it is not measured by how many times times I mess up, but by how many times I get up, dust myself off and try again :)
 
Yes for teenage boys and girls. I think it would open up conversations that teenagers normally wouldn't have.

I've slipped up recently. Prior to slipping up I realised that I had a "I don't care" kind of attitude. I thought to myself, what's the point? Feelings of worthlessness and numbness seep through after slipping up. I think being accountable is something that I need to work on. I think that abstinence isn't JUST the answer, I've been learning that doing things I love help me a lot so I'm going to keep doing that.

Hey BDBD, I agree, abstinence alone is not the answer. I think the reason people are so transformed after a reboot is because they have changed significantly. This is because simply being away from porn is not enough, and simple abstinence won't work without other lifestyle changes and perspective shifts. It is much more holistic than people think, in my opinion.
 
I've had a really bad week. I feel like the urges that I have are extremely strong mentally and it's been really hard. I have slipped up three times this week and it feels like a frenzy but after I just feel so numb, unsatisfied and yuck
 
Today I really felt as though someone cared enough to listen to my struggles. I had slipped up yet again and felt as though I had no hope. However there is hope for myself and for others struggling on here. I'm trying to take it a day a time to really invest in nourishing my mind with good things. Like listening to good music, talking to a loved one. I guess for me I admittedly wasn't actively trying and that was the problem in the first place. You gotta TRY. Even when I don't know where to start - trying is the best thing that I can do.
