Thanks mate. And welcome to the forum.Hi TypeN.
I'm new here. Just read your thread. I like what you said earlier about porn blockers. It's helpful but "it has to come from within".
Glad you've done good progress. Also good that you're gentle with yourself and avoiding shame and frustration. I know I definitely feel that. It has to be a nice balance between being nice and tough with yourself.
And important as you said to explore these other things in life that bring us healthy dopamine. What might these be for you?
I think a big one for me is becoming more social. I've always thought of myself as pretty introverted, but I think I'm much more naturally outgoing than I give myself credit for, it's just masked by addiction and other challenges in my life. So that's a big one I want to work on, and even just what I've done so far is showing results. But also lifting weights/other athletics, cooking, creative stuff ... especially art, since I'm a very visual person (like many of us here, I suspect; lol).
Quitting is going to give us so much time back, so there's so much to explore. In a way that's very exciting, I think.
