    Same here, cadcard. It's amazing to me how many sites contain triggering material. If you go someplace like Piratebay (where I often go to get ebooks, movies, music, etc.) - the banner ads all over thie sides are VERY triggering. I think a lot of the torrent sites are primarily funded by adult-related ad revenue. Even when I go to Youtube, things will occasionally pop up in the 'suggested' list that can be very triggering. I think this is because of the sorts of things I have looked for there before I went clean; it remembers where you've been and tries to offer up more of the same.

    In the early days, resisting these things was really hard. But nowadays, I find them pretty easy to ignore. I just scroll them off the page as soon as I see them, if I start feeling them drawing me in. If I can't get my mind off it, I just make myself shut off the computer and walk away. It has definitely gotten easier over time. I hardly notice them anymore - and when I do, they just look kinda silly to me.
    Sometimes I even feel a little flash of anger - like "Fuck you - you're not getting me again!"
    It's not the greatest of mantras. but I have to admit it works! ;)

    I was doing that too up till a few weeks ago. I remember seeing something racy I wanted to look at and was struggling with it, but in the end gave in. Kept losing contact with the "why I really don't want to give in to that". Guess my cortex control signal had shriveled and the "gotta have it" loop (forgot name) did it's thing. Kept getting easier to surf for more arousing things.

    I have to figure out how to attach my journal to my profile.

    Anyway, today is day 4. Yesterday was a little difficult but I didn't do any surfing, M or O. Each day I think about women a little more. I have to keep very fresh in my mind, why I want to do this. My addiction comes at me from many different angles. My brain is very cunning.

    I know I can do this, I just have to draw from my past experiences with other addictions that I have been able to keep at bay.

    They say the more intelligent you are, the more intelligent your additiction is :p So, I guess that at least means you're intelligent ;)

    Figure the journal thing out yet? Here's some screen shots in case. Took me a while too.

    Open your journal and look at the top of the page just under the HOME button. Your journal name will be the rightmost entry in the list with “>>” seperators. Right Click on your journal name and select “Copy URL” (if you’re using Internet Explorer, don’t know how using Firefox, etc…
    OK, that saves a copy of the journal address in the PC clipboard.Next, click the Profile button to the right of Home button, and select Forum Profile in the drop–down.Once on your profile page, mouse over the Modify Profile button and click Forum Profile. You might already be on that page.

    Scroll down to the Signature form field. Put your mouse in the signature field, Hold down the keyboard Ctrl key, and while it’s held down, press the V key just once to paste the address into the signature field. (Sorry about the info detail. Some people don’t use control keys, and I don’t know how you do it without it… :)

    IMPORTANT – OK, when you’re done changing your signature, BE SURE to scroll down the page and click on the Change Profile button or it won’t save your new profile.

    Hey JDoe, cadcard, TTLL, herecticx, and welcome 19anon99

    Wow. You guys are really prolific with your posting. Good job checking in so often and supporting each other. My apologies for being a bit absent.

    Had a relapse binge last night and today triggered by work and relationship stress. I have to admit that it felt good and felt much needed. Some guys here seem to feel empty or guilty about PMO, yet I don't... At least not up until becoming part of this group, as I want to hold myself accountable for you guys.

    herecticx,

    Hmmm... Tempted to see an escort on the 4th night? How about waiting until day 14 to give yourself that as a reward... And it won't be PMO. ;)

    Hahaha... And the good ones are better than most porn stars.

    Now you have me curious. If you don't mind me asking... Does all of your equipment work fine with a provider? And if it works fine, why do you want to reboot?

    Today is day 5.

    Yesterday, I was feeling horny. I was at the supermarket and checking out women. I made it a point to make eye contact and give a slight smile. Just a little experiment. It's amazing the response some women gave. I like women in my age range, 40-50ish. I kind of like the feeling of connecting with a woman through eye contact and telling her she's sexy. I am married though, this is really not right for me to be doing this. I have some issues with my wife that need to be addressed. These are matters that I will talk about in the future.

    I haven't felt a flatline yet, quite the contrary as a matter of fact. Each successive day without PMO and the hornier I feel. I absolutely know that I have to watch this. I have to watch the fantasy and absolutely NO 2 dimensional viewing of any kind of material.
