You should cover emotional control over situations so it doesn’t blow up the banana.

Here’s what everybody is going to do for the next week:

Stick to ONE urge killing method that you think will work, no matter what! So whenever that urge pops up go do whatever you chose.

Meditate once a week on the future of your new lifestyle. Think about the future days when the urges will be insanely tough. Think about your goals and your future self, because that’s who we’re going to be.

Keep going dudes. You’ve got this!

Hey bud! Welcome, welcome! Glad to have you here! I suggest reading the post above yours to get started.

Goodnight dudes! I’m clocking out. I’m trying a new sleep thing, shutting my device off one hour before bed. Peace! DON’T SLIP ON BANANAS OR YOU WILL FEEL MY WRATH. Jkjk.

Sorry for not having the video out last week and being inactive here. I’ll try and get more done this week. How are you all?

Alright dudes. Clocking out for the night. Had a few urges that hit hard but I hit harder. It’ll be worth it in the end even after all the “last times”. Goodnight all!

Alright dudes everyone above is getting added. I’m sorry no videos have been posted or uploaded for the past 2 weeks, but I’ve either been really busy or haven’t had the time to record. I’ll really try to make it up to you this week!

Sorry I haven’t been posting here. I don’t have time anymore. I also thought I kicked this addiction. I got baptized recently (for the first time), but less than 24 hours later I’ve already slipped up. I just ruined a once-in-a-lifetime event. Now all I will remember is how I did bad things and felt really bad after getting baptized. This was my first time in almost three weeks. I’ve had longer streaks before, so I’m not getting any better. I have nothing to feel good about. I’m not happy that I made it three weeks, because I knew I could make it longer. When I used to get a long streak and slip up, I would feel good that it was longer than my last streak. But now I can’t break my longest streak. It’s not about counting the days, but I don’t feel like I have made any progress. I feel crappy as ever. I did something similar before where I slipped up while on vacation. All I remember of the whole vacation is that day, because of how bad I felt. I can’t stop myself from feeling bad, because I’m a Christian, and I know that it’s a sin. I know that it is wrong to do. I need help. I told my mom about my addiction a few weeks ago, and she took away my phone. She handled it pretty well, and tried to help me. I still ended up sneaking my phone back, even though I now have to tell her, since she is my accountability partner. I’ve tried everything. This was my last chance at changing my life for the better, and one slip-up ruined it all. I don’t know if I’ll ever be free from addiction. I will always find a way to go crawling back to the internet when the pangs become too much to fight. I’ve read and listened to the Easy Peasy Way at least ten times over. I opened up about my addiction. I tried everything. But nothing helps. I always end up back in the same place. I feel like a horrible person. I hate myself, honestly. :slightly_frowning_face:

If you’re wondering why I slipped up today, it’s because I was depressed. I was struggling with urges all day, and they wouldn’t go away. I listened to the Easy Peasy method, but it didn’t help. I prayed to God over and over, but I ended up giving in. I do it because I’m depressed, and I’m depressed because I do it. Only God can help me, but he doesn’t. I can try to help me, but it won’t help. I’ve tried hundreds of times before, and it doesn’t help. Sorry for the long message. I just needed to get some stuff off my chest.

Dude that’s literally me. Literally almost the exact same as me. I relapsed on the day of my baptism, congrats btw, and I hated myself for that. I’ve ruined vacations thinking about the relapses that happened while I was there… I told my mom about my addiction, but I retaliated when she took my electronics, and I was so mean to her for the remainder of the time my electronics were gone. I was a terrible person back then. I’m afraid I’m still that guy today because I’m still very addicted to my phone… So what I learned from that and what she learned from that is that I need to come to my own conclusion on what’s best for me, because later down the road I realized that I needed to be off of my electronics more. I don’t totally agree with that method now, but still, I came to the conclusion myself is the point. I think hiding the problem from you isn’t the way to go, because like you said you found a way back to it. Confronting the problem, embracing it, and learning from it is the best way to go. Because you can’t ever really hide from forms of porn, but you can learn to fight temptations against it as you grow stronger like being able to look away from girls on the street or at school. Just a suggestion. And listen to me on this because you should never ever say God isn’t giving something to you. God isn’t giving to you because you aren’t giving to Him. And even when God is giving to you, He can only lead you to the water, but can never make you drink. Alright? I’ve had to open up to my mom about some tough stuff ok? I’m with you brother. You’ll be alright. Just work on that relationship with God, alright? God bless dog, and again, congrats!
