Ages 40 and up / Stuck in a cycle ... again

A few years ago, I had hoped I was done with this part of my life. It took me two reboots, but I managed to stay away from PMO form a couple of years. Then occasionally I would allow myself to look at bikini pics and that kind of thing. "Hey, I'm a pretty fit dude, and a picture of a woman who's in good shape is inspiring -- that's all." Then one day I gave in to masturbation. Then it became more and more common.

I am Catholic and I have gone to confession repeatedly, but I recently realized that this has become part of my pattern -- flirt with lust, give in to lust in gradually or not so gradually bigger ways, go to confession with the sincere attempt to stop, receive forgiveness, start all over, realize a few days later that looking at pictures of women would bring me pleasure and technically not count as porn ...

I don't know how many other people of faith are in this group, but I hope to connect with a few. Mostly I need to find away to be accountable and to have a place to be honest about what's going on in my life in order to live better.
