So I thought I would share my failure in hopes of saving others from going down a similar path.
I joined the gym almost three months ago and started the beginner routine and stayed fairly consistent, went porn free (still am) and things were going pretty well.
Around Thanksgiving, my routine fell apart for a variety of reasons, none of them good, but rationalization has a way of kicking in.
Then about two weeks ago, I discovered something which became a new addiction for me - sexchat (or really just sex IMing in forums online). Ugh, what a stupid move on my part. I have wasted hours of my life that I will never get back - in many ways worse than porn because of the time I was on this dumb site.
So my suggestion is with this or any addiction, fill your time with something else that you enjoy doing as opposed to just trying to avoid whatever your addiction is.
I am back here, getting myself back to a variety of new routines and habits to get some normality back.
Thanks to everyone here who has always been so supportive - really appreciate this community.
