    I can't figure out time zones without help either.

    Connoisseur of Lotions asked
    .

    Today I watched a video from Vsauce. And noticed this sentence : "The Beth Israel medical center in New York reports that addicts reported levels of boredom are the only reliable indicator of whether or not they will stay clean". I think after a first two-three weeks it's pretty much that. I don't find myself bored during the day, I'm actively learning different topics on coursera.org, I play videogame, yep and I don't think it's a waste of time, like some people, I'm learning on how to play on guitar, etc, and there's also a work I have to do, so there's not much time I can wonder around about pmo. I think if you can replace your pmo urge with other _important_to_you_ activity you can overcome this addiction.

    haha I just knew that some guys would get the time zones wrong ;D

    It would be good to do some preparetion in this group first. That's definetly great advice!

    Next meeting? 01/08 or do you want to have a meeting sooner? Any ideas for a topic? Right now I'm taking the recovery nation lessons concerning urge control, they're quite amazing.

    @Dan, yes I think this is the key to beating this. But also dealing with boredom in a healthy way is huge.

    Yeah I noticed that about Dan as well his streak is pretty impressive. I'm working through the recovery nation lesson right, I'm at lesson 19 I think.

    They're pretty great as well.

    @Adamant

    yeah prepare yourself for these jokes ;D.

    Too bad you couldn't be there!

    Yeah... I overused it alright, but on the playground doing pullups. :) It still hurts.

    So the next meeting is on 1st of September? At the same time?

    That's cool for me. The others still have to agree.

    Or if someone has a better date in mind, feel free to share it.

    And the topic guys? Any ideas?

    Hey guys

    I just got informed that Connoisseur wants to take a break from the forums.

    So that means that we'll have one spot left.

    Don't forget to reply to my previous post.

    thebraniac Just don't do it

    I'm working nights on the 1st but should be available during the day.

    Topics? Well I wasn't present last time so I'm not sure what was discussed, but what about the following:

    - urge control
    - reasons why you want to quit (might be useful to hear yourself say those reasons out loud)
    - diets or supplements? (I don't know much about this one but I figure there might be beneficial info out there)

    I would prefer "reasons why you want to quit". I'm doing the recovery nation lessons and urge control is really more complicated then just a technique.

    Are you doing the Recovery nation program? They spend a lot of time at learning how to dissociate yourself from you're urges and you're addiction etc.
