Journal Entry 17 Almost through the first week of the semester. It's daunting. I'm going to be challenged this semester. I want to be refined so challenge is a good thing, but it's very uncomfortable. This also means that there will be threats to my recovery. I will experience stress and anxiety this semester which will be times I won't necessarily be thinking through clearly. I will definitely be needing to prepare for those times. I'm not feeling the best outside the work load either. I'm trying to do my best to be more social at school. I'm not doing as well as I'd hoped. It's only week one so I realize that my attempts are not over. However, I am feeling a bit lonely at school. I was tempted to use this evening. My brother was watching a movie in the living room that had porn in the scenes. Obviously not full on hardcore porn, but it was still porn. Anyways, I stayed in the living room for too long, but I did leave. Luckily, I just told myself that using would be counterproductive to my goals. Dodged a bullet.
