That's funny, I just posted about how I'm trying to add meditation back to my daily routine, for the same reasons. I want to work on observing/recognizing/acknowledging emotions and then letting them go, instead of trying to fight them or avoid them—or instead of exerting all this willpower to not avoid them through porn. Relying on sheer willpower seems like a losing battle in the long run. Congrats on making it to day 13; the days definitely start to add up at this stage. As for your GF being out of town, maybe treat it as an opportunity? Like, this is when you can prove to yourself that you've really made a change. And, yes, definitely make some plans for yourself!
