Only day 7

Today was the first day that I felt temptation. Which I thought was weird that it took this long, though I wasn't complaining. The temptations were brief and I quickly changed my minds eye, but they were there and I know a part of me wanted to entertain those thoughts. I didn't but again I'm on day 7 only. How do I feel as strong now as I did on day 3 when I couldn't even imagine letting myself do anything to hurt my wife anymore and feeling like I was willing to die before being overcome by porn again? Don't get me wrong. I'm doing good. Just had a harder day. Almost as if Satan was saying. Ok break over. I'm thinking this is kinda critical to understand. If anybody can relate to where I'm at with advise I would very much appreciate it.


Well, I'm only on day 4. :)    
"So, I think you're doing great :). Keep it up. It's REALLY hard. Today I surrendered by calling my sponsor. For me, I've tried surrendering to God, but I guess I left him behind long ago. Trying to let Him in again. So, for now, it seems to work pretty well to surrender my will to my higher power who is my sponsor in SA. Whew! I'm glad that work. Grateful for another day of sobriety."

"Don’t live your life in despair, feeling sorry for yourself because of the mistakes you have made. Let the sunshine in by doing the right things—now. It may be difficult to begin, but pick up the scriptures and immerse yourself in them. Look for favorite passages. Lean on the Master’s teachings, on His servants’ testimonies. Refresh your parched soul with the word of God. The scriptures will give you comfort and the strength to overcome. "
