    I did end up talking with my wife a little more about why I was avoiding the show that she watched. It felt good to be more transparent about my motivation. We watched a movie together on Saturday night and it was interesting in that I was much more "touched" (emotional) towards certain scenes than I have been in the past. I feel like this is a good thing. Some time away from porn maybe is letting me experience things more fully.

    Of course there were some challenges as well. That same movie (which was family friendly/religious) also had a female character and for some reason it appeared like her nipples were visible through her shirts (conservative/button down). Perhaps because of this she also gave me a feeling like maybe I had seen someone who looked like her in porn. Also sex was a no go because my wife had evidently started her cycle earlier in the week.

    I've definitely noticed that kind of thing as well.

    I tend to look away from the screen during problematic scenes like that. Or at least try and concentrate on non-triggering parts of the screen lol. Of course if the whole film or whatever is triggering then it's best avoided.

    Some questionable browsing on the Amazon website this morning. It's not something that I set out to do. Basically I got a reminder to leave a review about something that I had purchased (for the bedroom...). This ended up sending me down a path of looking for a related product. Really there was no need to do such a thing. I wanted to mention this as leaving behaviors unchecked like this in the past has eventually ended in a (more like multiple) visits to porn town. I'm upset about my behavior because my current run has felt very "clean" (at least by my standards). I'm hoping that writing about this incident will help to remind me not to do this again in the future.

    Haven't heard from you for a while. Hope that means you've left porn behind in the dustbin of history and that life is going great.

    I just wanted to let you know that that one comment you made about appreciating the honesty of my journal meant a lot to me. I think it really helped me to explore journaling more and turn it into something that works for me, without being self-conscious about what others think. I feel like I am really starting to hit my stride, and I just wanted to share that with you.

    Take care
