    When I relapsed it was because i "wanted to". Meaning that I let my self do it and somehow justified it by having a shortlived dopamine rush.

    Why? I know why. My ingrown routine for stopping such things were not good enough. Have to work on that. Problem is; doing the right thing has no immediate reward. But the long-term rewards are very good.

    To be able to not relapse again I have had to focus on other good things in life and avoiding (or even thinking about) my known triggers such as porn and inner thoughts stimulating my "want-to-get-another-dopamine-rush-and-it-is-soo-easy-just-do-what-you-have-been-doing-so-many-times-before".

    The first relapse paves the road really good for the following binges. Stopping at the beginning or even before the beginning is what does the trick. I decided not to go on a binge. I am happy with that choice.

    Taking your addiction more seriously is very important. Addiction has broken our logic so that we prefer returning to addiction instead of suffering the abstinence.
