So here I am once again!

Here's a quick recap of where I'm at with my PMO recovery.

Once learning of this site (and others like it) I decided to give up PMO for at least 90 days.

On my first try I made it 44 days, then had a few days of PMO before getting back on the bus.

My second attempt I made it 54 days, this time it took me about a week to get back in line.

Now I'm starting over and have made it one week. From now on, every week I'll make a short post till I reach my 90 day goal.

I noticed many similarities between both my relapses. On both occasions fantasy played a major role. Once it began to creep back in (and I entertained it) that was the beginning of the end.

I'm still motivated to see this through.

For all you posters trying to quit for the first time. Don't let your guard down. Even after a few weeks you still need to stay focused. Try to avoid fantasy, edging or testing yourself. These things are usually not a one time deal, once you go down this road you could easily end up in place you were trying to avoid.

Good luck!
