DAY 27

Today was a good day. I had a to-do list that looked overwhelming. I started with the thing I wanted to do the least, and I was done for the day by lunchtime. Things like that just didn't happen when I was looking at P all the time. It's like culture shock because I'm not used to being the guy who just gets shit done like that.

That's what being P free means. Keep this in mind and anytime you have cravings for P, think about what you just said.

DAY 30!!! one month

Vacation time. Taking a trip with my girlfriend and family. taking a much-needed break from the internet. I'll check back in here after a while, and I'll check in to tell on myself if I do look at P. But, I plan to keep on not looking at it one day at a time.

Thank you all for your support and encouragement.

vaca fully deserved man!.. watching you'r progress and seeing great improvement.
great job becoming better at being the observer,.. catching thoughts like ""just look at it... maybe just pictures.... what's the big deal?" " etc....

it's what we do after, which is important. Not letting these suggestions have their way but us taking control.
I have full confidence in you being able to catch the suggestions and divert them...  with one day, one thought a time.

Enjoy vacation)

DAY 44

First, I gotta say that if it wasn't for this forum, I probably would have looked at some P already this morning. I'm alone for the first time in 2 weeks, and the loneliness is a trigger for sure. There was a voice saying "okay, cool, all alone, feeling a little lonely

My vacay with my GF was incredible. I've made a lot of progress in terms of intimacy and being more present. There were some ups and downs for sure, and I had to keep an eye out for thoughts of P while I was with her. But I'm lightyears from where I was when I was trying to have a relationship and look at P regularly.

I relate to this. This place is the best place to be. There is a lot of knowledge here and a lot of success to motivate us. I have to say the same thing: If it wasn't for this forum, I would've relapsed 2 days ago or yesterday, even this morning. But I thought: "I can't write: Today I have 1 week without P," and then relapse the minute after. Stay strong.
