Well, I just had about 33-35 days of no PMO.
It went well, I was feeling really good, my work, athletic training, wit, and confidence were all on the upswing.
I also switched to a much better diet, and felt I was contributing more to my family and career, as well as my faith practice.
However, this is part of my challenge: Ego, pride. I start feeling too good, women start noticing me more and commenting on my appearance (re, looking good) and then suddenly I think Im a celebrity and my own wife doesn't measure up, she's too heavy etc, and I get critical of her. Then, feeling proud and resentful, I saw a picture of a foxy young woman in the newspaper, dressed sexy, then I went home, looked at porn and lost it to PMO.
It was good in a way; it lead me to having a peaceful and frank talk with my wife last night. Finally, after nearly two years, she agreed that we need to schedule cuddle times together, because she has a very busy schedule. So I'm glad for that.
I also looked at some pictures of her from a few years ago when she was fit, and realized she is still a gorgeous woman, just overweight now.
Overall, that's a challenge for me. Compliments go to my head, humility is tough for me to grasp. But to be in a relationship with someone, it is essential.
Anyone have any feedback?
