Just checking in to say that all is well here. It’s been pretty smooth sailing this week, fortunately. I’ve got 41 days clean (no PMO, MO, or fantasy). I’ve continued to benefit this week from the SAA literature even though I’m not religious and don’t have a higher power. Their emphasis on a higher power in their 12 steps notwithstanding, they’ve got some great literature on sex/porn addiction. I’ve also been trying to get out of my comfort zone and build a more exciting life. I’ve read here and elsewhere that addicts need to enjoy recovery and need to try to build sober lives that they are excited about. So I suggested to my wife that we get out of town for a long hike this weekend. She loves hiking but I have hitherto been relatively ambivalent about hiking and we don’t hike that much. She’s thrilled that I suggested it and I’m excited for the change of pace and opportunity to connect to something new. One day at a time.
