    Hi everyone

    This is my first day of trying to get over my addiction. It has affected my work and my family life. I have been finding myself in the trap of watching or chatting on pornographic sites when I am supposed to be working, hiding away in my bedroom or int he bathroom when I am at home, or waiting until my wife goes to bed.

    It has meant that my work has suffered with me racing to meet deadlines because I have spent hours on the internet chatting, viewing, and masturbating. It is also giving me an unrealistic expectation of what my relationship should be with my wife. I also can cut it close in the crude comments that I may make to friends and colleagues.

    I have closed all my accounts with porn sites and have also got rid of my anonymous email addresses and Skype. I have tried before but this is a new “day one” and I don’t want to fail.

    What I am going to do is have a daily check-in. Please feel free to join me and keep me and yourselves accountable.

    Day two for me. I found a load of saved photos on my phone last night. It is amazing how just glimpsing them can start to make you aroused and want to see more. I deleted them all permanently though and avoided this blip. I have also blocked adult sites through my network provider so hopefully this will act as another obstacle to me going online. I am also trying to reassess my relationship with my wife so that it is a healthy one rather than a lustful one.

    Day 3! Apologies - I may be posting my update in the wrong forum. Have had a couple of “twitches” as my wife and kids have been out and I have been tempted to look. I have however been good and resisted the urge by keeping busy.
