So this is my first post here. I´m gonna try and be brief as this is only meant to be related to the recovery responses. So let´s cut to it.

Lesson 1 A
1) I feel that actively committing myself to change is probably the most critical attitude I need to adopt now. I´ve been reading the initial material here and it seems to me that I´m almost always guided by the initial euphoria that comes when we think we´ve decided to recover for good... It was really interesting to understand that this decision to abandon addiction must come completely from inside. When I realized the depth of this statement, I also realized that I miss something inside here that will somehow assure my decision is something entirely internal and it´s true!

2) I´ve been struggling with addiction for so long that I´ve really come to a point where I can see that guilty or shame are useless. I´m not better or worse than anyone else just because of my addiction. Nor I´m a victim that should be taken care of.

3) I´m committed to allow any amount of time necessary for this addiction to go away, specially now with this health-based process about to start!

To continue....

Reasons why I should quit porn

1) I want to become more conscious and thus more present in my own life.
2) I want to fulfill my life with great achievements.
3) I want to have energy to live a real life with real people around me and real events going on.
4) I want to live a healthy sexual life with my girlfriend, one I can be honest not only with her but with myself as well.
5) I want to accept my flaws and my problems and understand that they are just part of my life.
6) I want to truly feel things, whether they are good or bad.
7) I want to have a healthier body.
8) I want to use my time much better than I am using right now.
9) I believe I can apply at least some of this sexual energy in a whole bunch of good things!
10) I want to help people with my example.
11) I want to live a life where I can just be who I am, confident enough to build my own way through it.
12) I want to be proud of what I´m able to do and what I´ve accomplished so far.

Still the last part of Lesson 1 to go...

Hello PRT and welcome to RN

hopefully the first of many :pe:
this is your thread hence the decision regarding the extent of your posts is yours, this thread should be a tool for your future reflection and a guide to how far (or not) you have moved in change, although remember it is not a chat room

Absolutely

for change you do need commitment, RN is not a one stop fix all course but it is a great roadmap and I believe that anyone who really does want recovery can achieve it
IMO addiction is not a sickness it is a weakness
if you really do want to improve your life and remove those self inflicted shackles of addiction and to recover from your emotion driven compulsive behaviours then you are at a good place to make that a reality, RN can show you the way
To achieve recovery then commit , fully and completely
work through the lessons and understand them , if you miss something ask on the help forum , assistance is always on hand, this community is supportive to those who demonstrate sincerity in their journey
coaches and mentors are likely to drop by occasionally but if not, don't worry as this is generally a good indicator that you are on the right path, you have not been abandoned

the path is long and difficult but it is well proven and you are not alone, many have taken the path successfully, your actions are yours but you are not the first and unfortunately will not be the last
we usually suggest completing about 3 lessons a week but spending time every day posting , reading, evaluating and putting into practice what you have learned, be open be honest, nobody here will judge you
get to know your addiction and see yourself with honesty and openness

remember to work at your own pace and its not a race indeed some consider recovery to be a journey rather than a destination

the only person that can make these changes is you, so the hard work needs to come from you
looking forwards to reading your posts and wishing you all the best

I like the line that addiction is not a sickness, but a weakness. It's kind of liberating when you think about it. Because everyone has the potential to get stronger and overcome weaknesses.

And I do agree with LanceCos: this line is quite helpful. Gotta keep it in mind along the way!
