You've got this, my friend!
Yes mate 100%. Is good to have some accountability to succeed on this so if you feel like being weak and giving in to temptation just think about how much better it would feel to post on here that you were strong and didn’t give in I’ll make sure I keep checking in with you!It's been a difficult few days for several reasons but I'm not going to wallow and will get right back on this. Tomorrow will be a better day and posting here is the start of that process.
Ps great to have you back @G.123, it really is. You've often been in my thoughts and fingers crossed we can both build some momentum again.
Keep yourself busy as much as possible. It may help with being alone and possibly getting bored. It has worked for me and helped me from relapsing quite a few times.I haven't posted much in the last few days and have again had a mixed period. I've been trying to get back on the path and am just checking in at the end of day 4. Tomorrow will be the hardest day of the current streak as I'll be by myself for the first time in a while, so I really need to focus on putting good structures in place and keep myself occupied and engaged.
I also need to remind myself why I'm on this journey and put some time aside to reflect on where I want to get to.
I'm staying positive and know that tomorrow can be a really good day.
hey @searching4good sounds like it has been a whirl of a day for you! kudos to you for putting your foot down and doing the best you could despite any of your circumstances. it’s hard to snap out of it during the general day and it’s so easy to just go on autopilot.Well I am exhausted. Today has been non-stop since about 6am. Combination of work, tradespeople starting a job in the flat and preparing for a few days away. I've been flat out and as I down tools, there still feels like a hundred things that I didn't get to.
The positives are that I faced into everything today largely as best I could, and whilst I did find myself at one point idly going on an old P website on my phone, I didn't act on it and managed to close it down and get on with what needed to be done.
So in that sense it wasn't a perfect day in terms of purity, but it was a hell of a lot better than the last few days. It also means that I'm heading into my trip with a sense of at least somewhat being back on the right path again. I should now have a clear run to build up some momentum (I almost never feel the urge to look at P when I'm in company) and take stock of the opportunity I have to really seize the year that's ahead of me still.
