The last week has been surprisingly easy. I have had a couple of brief urges to look at porn or be the creepy Facebook stalker I can sometimes be, but since I wrote about my worst habits and triggers a while ago I have had a better handle on them.
My urges go away pretty easily.
Actually, having said that, I did go through a phase last weekend of allowing myself long lie ins in which I would fantasize about one of my students. Not the best way to overcome my problem. But to my credit, I didn’t look them up on Facebook like I would have before, or have to fap about it.
Still, it’s a good motivation for me to just get straight out of bed when I wake up so I am not tempted to tease myself in that way again.
Anyway, it’s been a good week, so I won’t get too bogged down in pity or shame. I’m feeling pretty good about my recovery at the moment.
