Hello everyone, I'm new here and signed up today for this forum. I've read a few posts already and we all have the same stuff that haunts us. I'd like to discuss how and why it's so difficult to stop the thoughts from entering my mind. The constant barrage of internet pornography and masturbation never seem to end. I've lost so much already and made some progress in my personal life but, the thoughts don't go away. The longer I stay away from it the stronger the thoughts are. Yesterday was hard, I went ALL DAY with the thoughts of porn entering my mind. I didn't give in but my goodness, it's powerful. Today just continued and I failed on both fronts, P and M. I went to look up some and as soon as I did, I told myself "what the F are you doing?" and stopped. Still, its so frustrating. I saw the counter and added it to my profile to reflect my progress and I hope it makes me more accountable. What are some things do you do to stop these thoughts?
