So I didn't last much longer after my last post. Then I had another one week mark that I didn't post. And here I am posting yet another one week marker. So I've firmly established I can last a week. But that doesn't do me much good. I'm now beginning to consider some more drastic measures. I will probably need to change careers at some point. Currently I work at the computer from home, where I live alone. Before doing that, I'm also considering one of the "pick-up bootcamps" that I've read about. Has anybody tried these? Basically a weekend event where a dating coach helps you to approach strange and attractive women. Right now I'm stuck in this mindset of "I will abstain long enough and things will magically get better". But the truth is, I have built myself a veritable porn fortress of solitude and misanthropy. If I abstain from porn without tearing down the walls I've put up... I'll just be a lifelong abstinent. I need to make concrete changes in my lifestyle that force me into social situations, force me away from computer, and force me to get after some girls. I'm 29 and I've lost my old social circle to work and marriages and kids. I squandered the youthful energy of teens and 20's, now it takes some difficult work.
