I put this in my daily thoughts post but decided it needed its on entry because of some of the stuff I read this morning
I think I have figured out what causes relapses even after 30days and more when you try to break this addiction and probably any addiction. Mental, Physical, Emotional and spiritual fatigue sets in. I am feeling all of those now. I think you only have to hit your limit on one of these to have a relapse. I also think there is little you can do to stop some of the relapses. There are things you can do but it can only go so far. I am not suggesting giving up here but the opposite. It is like exercise. When I first started on the treadmill I was going 5 minutes at about 3 mph and would be too winded to continue. Now I can go at an incline of 5 for an hour at well over 4mph and could keep going but choose to end my workout there. I think this is like that. You have to keep working at it till you can go as long as you want without or not giving in cause you have built up your endurance. Those are thoughts about this. I could be wrong but I feel the fatigue starting to set in. I am doing as much as I can. I am just starting to lose focus a bit. I am also slowing down on some activities. Some have stopped and I just feel to "tired" to try doing them. It is kind of strange to observe this in myself.
