When porn is an active part of my life my soul feels a little darker and I feel like I'm hiding secrets, which I am, and that's just not healthy.

I like your hiking analogy, and as you're faithful and disciplined in that, you can also be in your reboot.

If secrecy is your tendency (as it is mine), then coming here to journal more regularly, keeping yourself accountable to brothers who've got your back, is not only ideal, but a must.

Self-deception can keep you dealing with this same old stuff, not only for years, but decades. Don't let this reboot be just another exercise in self-deception.

Rise above, and stand on the top of this, enjoying that beautiful horizon on the other side.
My abstinence is currently at 112+days.

Tinmann - Really happy to hear that you've emerged from this stronger and even more determined than before. The way we get through this is by taking this battle one day at a time, by being flexible with ourselves and committed to change, and by embracing slips as an opportunity to learn and grow. The top of the mountain is within your grasp. You've got this, friend!
