Well done man
Yep, it's part of the withdrawal. It's hard but hey, you've reached 2 weeks. Awesome!
Stay strong and yep, focus in your life instead focus in stay away from p. I'm struggling with that too

Yeah, I'm coming up on being around here for almost a year, and it's been sad to see people come and go. I don't know, thought I'd let them know we're thinking about them still if they decide to come back.

But it's really encouraging that you're still swimming. That's what really counts in all this. Persistence and consistency. No matter how imperfectly we go along, we're only done for when we give up and quit trying. Still swimming is still succeeding.

And that's a great letter to your fear. I wrote a breakup letter to porn a long while ago. I don't really remember what I said, but I remember feeling like it was time to put an end to a bad relationship.

I didn't say "Stay behind and fall in line," though, but I should have. That's an awesome line!

Yeah I am starting to realize my own fear, internal dialogue, and again, fear, drive my habit of getting lost in other worlds.  This world needs us, don't be scared homie.  I'm on my way to a date :) wish me luck, this one feels promising.

That's good to hear.  I'm going to focus on breathing through the storms instead of MOing so frequently.  Just this past week a lot of storms for me too that I didn't experience during the reboot.  The tides are always changing.  Treat yourself to a weekend filled with activities you love, you're doing great dude.

In the meanwhile, well... I just need to freakin do it.

Or rather NOT do IT.

Thanks a bunch, squid! I really appreciate the support, especially after a day like yesterday.

The urges from yesterday were pretty much gone today, a good reminder that they always pass. I have also more or less managed to talk myself down from being disappointed in myself earlier this week. Roll with the punches and keep moving on.

Today was a pretty quiet day, actually. Just working on some things, catching up on email and stuff. Not much to report beyond the fact that the storm from yesterday seems to have passed.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Tbh, i dont have much to say now.

I know everything i need to know as far as rebooting theory is concerned.
Now i just need to get past the 15 days mark, which i keep failing at since i started the journal two months ago.

I dont have much to say about cravings, feelings, learning experiences, etc...

I pretty much have already told everything in the previous pages.
Now i need to get past that damn two weeks mark in order to start experiencing new stuff.

God speed.

Yes. Thank you, Free.

I like these two days.
As you said : two days away from the filth.

Day freakin 3

Glad to hear you only almost relapsed: good job keeping yourself on track!

It's great to hear as well that things seem to be going pretty well in general. Sometimes we have to juggle our recovery with a lot of other things that seem to be going wrong, but, with some more stability in other areas of your life, it looks like a great time to put more focus on recovery.

Keep at it!

This is awesome!

You're exactly right that 63 days is no guarantee that you're in the clear. I think we're done for as soon as we start thinking that a relapse can't happen to us again. Always being aware that it is possible keeps us honest with ourselves and committed to keeping ourselves safe. Definitely stick with it and keep going strong.

I also like those ideas about dealing with anxiety. I really started feeling more anxiety in the last year or so, and I'm getting along okay, but I think those steps will help me too. Thanks for posting about it!
