Today is Day Zero. C and the kids have gone home, and I am making a conscious effort to maintain abstinence beginning today. The boundaries that I have set for myself are:
Inner Circle (non-negotiable, no activity)
1. No online pornography
2. No “escapist” masturbation
3. No contact with women online
4. No contact with women in-person
Number 3 and 4 relate to secret contacts, and not with women well-known to both C. and I.
Outer Circle (positive activities)
5. No emotional eating
6. 20 minutes per day of exercise
7. 15 minutes per day of meditation
Number 6 and 7 are minimum amounts of time to be engaged in these activities.
What am I going to be doing with all of my time if I stick to all of the “checks” on my addictive personality?
I DON’T HAVE THE SLIGHTEST IDEA!! And that is the adventure in this. 🙂
