thank you!! yes im realizing when life situations come up si the MOST tempting so I need to act on it or find other ways to deal with it... also the toughest times seem to be right before I go to sleep and right when I wake upHey June! Sorry to hear about the relapse; learn from it and don't let the same situation happen again. Try to immediately get back in the swing of things!
day 1 done
biggest obstacle is outside factors fucking me up mentally, I think it's not having to do with this (this is just a crutch, or way to relieve emotion) but my real life right now feels pretty shitty.
will still try to do this but last 2 days or so fucked me up a lot
these are good ideas thank you.Hey June. P addiction is a tricky thing in that it can be rooted in a lot of different things. For most men it's feelings of social inadequacy and loneliness but it can be a multitude of things. For me, I think it was a combination of loneliness and social inadequacy but also heartbreak and loss, which I guess are combined. While I haven't recovered yet, I think I've managed to transform my P addiction from one that provided relief from distress, to just a "simple" P addiction in which I feed urges. While it's still an addiction, I don't really have to deal with those other external problems which has helped my mental state tremendously.
If I were you I would take some time to figure out what it is that is making you unhappy or unsatisfied with your life. Obviously P is one thing but what about the other stuff. If you're going through a lot of things, that list might be long but identify problems that you can take steps to address right now. For example, for loneliness, I reached out to some people from my childhood that lived in the area but that I hadn't remained close with. Now, I think they are some of my closest friends and I'm able to be satisfied with my social life.
