The old solution is fleeting
I'm in a clean streak now and it certainly feels different. I'm reading more (yourbrainonporn.com as well as much of the online materials here).
I had some major stress today. In the past, it has led me to try to escape. I'm not doing that now. I'm listening to music, taking a walk, focusing on work, learning some Torah. Stress and anxiety aren't going away but I know that running to my computer will be fleeting. It won't make the problems go away and it won't help me solve them, it will just get me to feel even more down.
Here's hoping that this is a step in the right direction.
