    Hello, trying another crack at this recovery "thing ". Was last on this forum, probably 4-5 years ago(?) - different psuedonymn(?):(, same old bullsh_t. Only difference now, I am older and obviously not much wiser.
    Like many on this forum I began this problematic journey when I was a young lad, quite naive and innocently drawn into it's beguiling promises. And year after year I continued my downwards spiral into the belly of the beast as it were. Till one day I realized that I was indeed a " kept " man, with no where to turn, escape the hell I had created for myself (and of course with a little bit(lot) of help from my porn pixel friends) .
    So- this is where I find myself today, 2 days past acting out for the millionth time(?) and wishing that I could turn the clock back from those many years ago when I first let my guard down-to take that first glimpse ,that first peek at the naked image in my sights....

    Well starting on on day 3.Have managed to steer away of pa related media. I think I'm still po'd w/myself, so have not began that familiar relapse cycle yet-we're all so familiar with. I really want to make a go of it-so I'll have to be vigilant and watch out for the signs and take corrective measures, sooner than later....will have to review boundaries I set, long ago trampled down .Without clear set boundaries I haven't a chance in he..ll of going forward ?..time to move on.

    Welcome back. Lots of people who were active here 4-5 years ago and came back (myself included) because of the same old problem. Stay strong.

    Welcome back. 5 days is a 500% improvement over 1 day. You and I can't turn the clock back -- I wish I could too. Heck, we can't even stop it from ticking. But I can make a plan on how to schedule my day tomorrow to best avoid PM, and I can lean gently forward into Victory, rather than lean back in regret.
