    Hey James ,
    Hope you are doing great and thanks for encouragement .No I am not frivolous about quitting porn infact I have been trying some new things and finding moderate success .But everytime I relapse I feel very down hearted and could not muster courage to go again . It almost feels like I am fightimg a losing battle . Porn is almost everywhere , as if the media wants you to binge on it (sorry for sounding like a conspiracy guy) . The other day I watched some P because some leaked sex tape of a soccer player came on twitter feed and next thing you realise "oh man I haven't checked porn in a while might well check some new material and you know the rest...."

    Currently writing a journal and some notes about my behavior patterns that lead up to this and guess what I found I watch porn when I am alone late at night and drunk .

    Need a comprehensive strategy to fight this disgusting vice that is way more harder for me than I ever realised .
    Btw I quit smoking cold turkey 13th day today .

    Remind yourself of this feeling every time you feel yourself wanting to relapse.

    You're not. You're fighting a shed-load of conditioning and habit. Focus on the long-run. Distract yourself when you feel yourself wanting to relapse. Don't hamster away and rationalize bad decision. No, you don't deserve to watch porn because you've not seen it in a while. Don't beat yourself up over mistakes, just don't make bullshit excuses.

    There's so much absolute shite out there, in your face, just waiting to be consumed. It takes strength in a man to see past what society tries feeding us, and to see how much it benefits you as a man to stop consuming all the shit thrown at you, no matter how "much better it can make your life", when in actuality, it's just a short-term endorphin kick.
