You are definitely NOT your grandfather or your uncle, Escape! You are doing something about it, you are reversing the trend, and being your own man with your own destiny and story to tell!
Absolutely. Every day without porn is a win.Keep going man. Remember that every day without porn is a victory. Every individual day. Everyone focuses on streaks but the number of porn free days counts as well.
Try to avoid drinking alone, that's something I've tried to cut out. I only drink in the presence of other people now, and rarely at home. I don't know if you drink beer but I've found the non-alcohol variants (which are now sold widely in my country) to be a decent substitute.
IKR. My own view is that this is the universe testing us. Just asking an "Are you sure?" question.Funny how this thing always comes when I'm finally able to get a longer streak without drinking.
Thanks bro. I appreciate the support. Yes, this is how it happens, isn't it? When finally it's working for you, challenges come right away to test you. Those meetings at work seem to happen only after a longer streak without alcohol for me.IKR. My own view is that this is the universe testing us. Just asking an "Are you sure?" question.
Today I went for a coffee with a friend. Usually 0 attractive girls at this coffee shop. But today. There was a one very cute girl sitting next to our table. Then 2 dudes at the table just in front left, to be replaced by 2 very cute girls. Obviously. Got triggered. Now time for some inner work...
Wish you all the best bro
I'm struggling with the fuckin craving. I can't take this anymore, I don't know what to do. I might never quit this idiotic addiction.
A - Acceptance. Be accepting, even welcoming of the anxious feelings, urges or fantasies;
W- Watchful. Watch as an outside observer without judgment, with compassion and understanding.
A- Act. Take action on these feelings, in terms of breathing deep, staying calm in the moment.
R- Repeat. Repeat steps 1-3, until the urges passes.
E- Expect. Know that these urges, and their preceding triggers, will come, but have an expectancy that you will handle them successfully.
