No matter what the problem, PMO is not the answer.
WRAT it's a simple mistake. we are vulnerable when sick, stressed, tired. don't let it get you down. no shame. live and learn. it's insignificant in the scheme of things.
Hey WRAT, no problem.
When you are ready... pick yourself up and dust yourself off and start taking those precious steps again, when you are ready.
I think this is pretty cool...
part of a good series of vids
FCJ, great video. I watched his videos several months back but it was good to see this one again. Even with the relapses this year, I have not binged and I did that a lot in the past. Hopefully, that's progress.
Thanks for your comments.
Not binging is indeed progress WRAT! Glad the vid was a good reminder that you are doing well! Awareness is a big part of this.
Yes wrat you have survived to fight another day. Being able to move on, reset and start again shows amazing strength. Be strong.
Busy weekend but feeling pretty good. Trying to fill my calendar today so I won't be tempted. Hope all of you had a great weekend.
Hi WRAT. Had a good weekend. I think you're doing well by staying busy. I find that when I'm busy the temptations are much less even nil. Keep it up
I'm happy to report I'm feeling that sense of calm I was feeling when I was 30 plus days into my reboot. Pressures still abound but I'm feeling much less anxiety about them.
I appreciate the posts about taking this one day at a time. That is helping.
Good to hear it.
WRAT that is a good sign.
Each day is a battle. That is the tough part. But there is a good side also. Each day you resist brings more benefits, like the peace and calm you were mentioning. Keep it up. It only gets better.
That's a good way to look at it.
Fun and busy weekend but now alone in front of the computer. I have no desire to PMO now but made reading some updates on this forum part of my morning routine. I'm working out at lunch and have a pretty full afternoon.
I'm still enjoying the calm feeling but remember how quick a relapse can occur. Happy Monday.
Sounds like you are in a good place Wrat, just remember not to let your guard down.
Visiting YBR is one of the best positive steps you can take in this fight. That's one major reason I keep coming back.
happy Monday back at ya WRAT!
Very nice how you wrote that... "Fun and busy weekend but now alone in front of the computer. I have no desire to PMO now but made reading some updates on this forum part of my morning routine. I'm working out at lunch and have a pretty full afternoon.

This is a sustainable mindset! Awareness but not dwelling.
Wrat you are closing in on 2 weeks. Great job. Keep one foot in front of the other.
Thanks for the encouraging words gentlemen; they are so appreciated.
Feeling good today. I have another trip back East scheduled for early March. I think I set myself up for failure my last trip by stressing so much about a possible relapse. Now I'm simply working on getting through today.
Planning for stress is never a good idea.
