[QUOTE="realness, post: 710373, member: 26515" One thing that stood out to me was highlighting your decision making in your frontal cortex (the part of our brain that we've weakened to almost nothing in our addictions) by verbally stating what is happening and verbally stating what you want to do. I tried it today and it was pretty cool. I'm ready for another day of recovery and another and another. Strengthening actions, thoughts and behaviors that I've neglected. My best to all you brothers claiming victory here[/QUOTE] When I learned about the effects of PMO on the frontal cortex, that was a major ‘A-ha!’ moment for me. I’ve been working on a side business for a while now and dragging my feet over things/making bad decisions/procrastination. When I combine that with lifelong poor organizational skills, it explains why I haven’t made as much progress as I wanted and why my life planning in general is not so good. Keep going!
