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."

"If it were possible to make your road very easy, you wouldn’t grow in strength. If you were always forgiven for every mistake without effort on your part, you would never receive the blessings of repentance. If everything were done for you, you wouldn’t learn how to work, or gain self-confidence, or acquire the power to change. "
