    I went about 160 days without porn.
    There was a day where my wife was out of town and i was simply bored.
    I let my curiosity get the best of me and I have used porn about 4 times since.
    How can I get back on track?

    Thanks,
    vjonw

    No need to beat yourself up for making a mistake- it sounds like you understand the situation pretty well. I’m in a similar situation right now but we know that the only way for us to go is to kick the habit. Which means that we need to change, which is painful especially with the chaser effect you might be feeling. But the good news is that you’ve already proven you can do it, so you just need to stick with it until you get a solid foundation going again. Things that work for me are reading posts on this website (it rocks) when I notice i’m starting to get an urge, which helps me remember how I’ll feel if I fell back into old habits. I also find I can let out some stress and build confidence by going on a run or to the gym. I also like watching movies that make me laugh or draw me in to get out of that headspace.
