It's better when I'm too tired to even look at porn. As long as I'm moving through my schedule, there's little opportunities to let me guard down.

Report after relapses. Sadly, in the last few days I relapsed with everything. Even with junk food. I played a video game that wasn't even fun or satisfying. I got rid of it after two days three days (bofore that there was one slip with the same game). I added some junk food later, but luckily for now I only spent a little bit of money on it (it's a big financial problem for me when I binge on it). Today and over the last few days I've been watching porn and masturbating almost all the time. Before I returned to gaming, I was watching it for several hours a day, as if it was instead of gaming. That means I have to abstain from all three, otherwise it doesn't make sense.

My plan is thus: I'm gonna block all my internet except for the most crucial things (college stuff, facebook for communication, public transport, email, bank, doctor stuff, library stuff, this forum) and give the password to my best friend without telling him what it's all about. He's gonna think it's just so that I can study. I'm blocking reddit because there's no option to allow only specific subreddits. I'm also somehow gonna block all internet on my phones. That way I'll have no way to download games, waste time browsing random shit, look at any sexual stuff. I know there's a way to break all those restrictions if I really want to, but it's going to take a lot of time. I'll couple it with keeping busy and it should be fine.

If I spent the last week on hardcore studying like I was planning, right now I would be perfectly prepared for tomorrow's exam. Instead I've been just looking through the notes for the lest couple of hours. I'm only grateful that it's gonna be an easy test instead of something that actually requires real knowledge.

That's why I'm trying to abstain from multiple things: gaming, fast food, porn. Otherwise I binge on the ones I don't cut out. Just don't give up!

Hey, hey, hey my SuperSaiyan!

The relapse is important thing. It happens, end this is the best time to make positive changes :)

The trick with friend is a good. I suggest you to tell him that it's just for studying/work purposes. This way you'll have to embarrass yourself if you will want to get the password back!

I recommend Rescue Time app. It's just awesome for me! It shows how much time you spend on specific website/program each day and show your productivity and distractive time. I installed it a month ago and I didn't even realise before how much time I wasted on YT over a month! :)

I have even better idea for blocking sites. Using computer at home should be only for things that are necessary. Planned at least day ahead. And things that you have to do at home. For me it's printing, accounting, accountability calls and this forum. The rest I can do outside the house like in coffee shop, library reading room or even outside :)

Btw. I'm interested into what you said once, I mean that you're psychologist. However you still study, right? Can you expand more about it? If you want of course :)

Greetings, Mad Pharmacist
