    Hey there Saville. Good to hear from you. Thank you for thinking of me.
    I'm plugging along in my workaday world.
    As the John Denver song once said "some days are diamonds some days are stones".
    Working 6 1/2 days a week at age 65 gets a little bit old. But I didn't plan for my future as a young man so I guess I'm paying for it now :confused:
    I'm still fighting the good fight. Most days I keep things under control. Sometimes my higher self let's down the guard and a good punch slips through.
    Had good time with my wife the other night. HJ though. I'll probably never have piv again. The peyrones won't allow penetration. And a full blown hard on is uncomfortable. But the rest of my health seems good. For that I am thankful.
    All the best to you sir

    Hi Boxer17, I have the same Problem as you with the calcification of tissue, my worst is in my Hands were it is called dupuytrens, and I also have peyronies, the doctors say it is the same cause only in different places. I started to take shilajit also called mumijo which has a lot of fulvic Acid in it and this seems to help to soften the tissue. Maybe you want to look into it and give it a go, it is cheap. It comes from the mountains of India, Russia or mexico. The real stuff is like a black sticky molases and I only take a pie size of it a day. Have a nice Weekend.

    Wow! What a weekend. I had a toothache slowly coming on and kept putting off having it looked at.
    Last Thursday made an appointment for tomorrow.
    Last night in bed it felt like an ice pick was being driven into the side of my head.
    Dentist made an emergency opening and got an abscessed tooth removed.
    Infection had gotten into jawbone.
    Head still hurts but on antibiotics and taking it easy
    I know it's off Pmo topic but dropped in to post

    Warm regards to all
    Boxer

    Hey guys
    Sticking my head in for a quick update. My life has been very busy recently. Work has been quite a lot busier with the onset of good weather. Facilities services here at work has to extend to the outdoors now with the growing season coming on
    I have been staying away from pmo.
    Had a good time with the wife the other night. My libido is fairly low when not hyped up by P.
    Mainly been able to read other's posts and like. Haven't had time to ponder some of the good thoughts put forth by you Gents.

    Warm regards to all
    Boxer

    Libidos go up and down and are not the barometer of how are lives are. :) Also, there's that age thing. o_O

    Hey there guys. Life is crazy busy lately. I only post during breaks at work. Not at home.
    Still in there swinging against my baser tendencies. Usually stay on top of things. I get occasionally blindsided but get back up and keep going.
    As we all know this is a lifelong endeavor to stay clean.
    Warm regards to you guys

    @Boxer17 Just reading your post on the toothache had me thinking that PMO would be the perfect distraction. I've used it before to manage pain. So kudos to you for not falling into it. Great work.
    @Saville I needed to hear that about libido. I think my spouse does too. Back to me, reading in the journals about renewed sex adventures after being sober has triggered me into thinking I'm less than. Of course, that's one of the issues of P, is a "new" encounter every time. That doesn't happen in monogamy. So, my libido will not react the same, but it doesn't mean I'm broken. Thanks.

    Yes. Well put. That " new" encounter drive can be so devastating to sobriety and monogamy.
    That being said, there is something comforting about sex with the person with whom you are familiar.
    I always remember the words from that Gary Morris song.

    Caught between two fires
    One is safe and warm
    One is pure desire.....

    Yup yup yup! Been there (twice) and the safe, warm, one, imo, is best. I found that I lacked desire in myself and thus was looking for it in someone else.

    I can so relate...being another Christian (Catholic) sex addict. I agree totally about the advent of home internet = high speed porn availability as acting like a blow torch for our addiction compared to hanging around in the corner newspaper stand getting up the nerve to grab a few girlie magazines and eventually take them up to the counter. Been there and done that. Love your thoughts about helping each other out and, of course, relying on the love of God to help us cope. He is there for us, but the inner addict does its best to place a veil or shadow between us and Him. May we all find strength to cast that aside and come into the light. We need to remember that our God takes us as we are...sinners.
