I need to beat this

Day 4

had a really stressful day at work, my girlfriend was out of the house and i was feeling quite anxious today. My brain was telling me that’s its ok to watch porn today and that i’ll feel less stressed after that. I wanted to but i thought about how many times I’ve already done that and how im still stuck in the same place. I thought about how i’ll feel after losing the battle with my brain again. I quickly came back to the forum, read some stories about guys fighting this as well and how they are succeeding and I want to be like them and turn this around. I started reading more information on yourbrainonporn, the stuff about re-wiring your brain gave me hope. I’m not going to PMO, I’m proud of myself for beating this addiction today. I’m going to try mediate to calm my anxiety and im going to gym.
 
any suggestions for when I’m at work or when’s it in the middle of the night ? How are you getting on with your reboot ?

If you can't do pushups, try an isometric exercise. This is when you contract muscles without actually putting weights or reistance on them. Give them a google. The point is, to try and do something physical to get out of your head and stop thinking so much. P really does mess with your head.

As for my reboot I'm doing really well. I'm on 3 weeks no PMO and have had sex with my wife a few times without orgasm. Used cialis to help the first time but the second time I was fine without it.

I can feel it, this is the time I'm going to conquer this issue. Been dealing with it for over a decade, its finally time. Looking forward to getting strong boners back!

Cool will look into isometric exercises for sure, thanks for the advice Mate ! 3 weeks, that’s great stuff. You’re aiming for 90 days no PMO ?

You’ve got this !
 
Day 7

My girlfriend and family were over at mine the last few days so barely thought about porn. Home alone today so a few thoughts crept up, even thoughts to just watch porn without `PMO. I know that never works for me and i will relapse. Going to run errands, exercise and meet a friend to keep myself busy today. 100 percent sure i wont mess up today

Hey @Wedergeboorte just wanted to say hi and to let you know that I'm also following your journal. It sounds like you're putting in some really solid groundwork and have got the right mindset.

I'm still starting out on my journey and am learning so much from all the other amazing, wise and inspirational rebooters on here. So whilst I don't have an iota of the advice to share that some others do, one of the main things that's struck me so far is to never fall into the trap of being too embarrassed/shamed into coming back on here if you do slip. That's the P talking - it wants you to compound the situation by making it far worse. Post-slip is the most dangerous time and the best thing we can do is to get right back on the horse by reflecting on why it happened, and then reminding ourselves of why we're on this journey in the first place.

There is no judgement here and we all want to see you keep checking in and fighting the good fight, even if the path isn't linear. Looking forward to being on that journey with you my friend.
