I think there's a misconception about dopamine. Dopamine is the hormone that induces craving. It's the hormone that will tell me that I'm going to feel pleasure soon. But it's not a pleasure hormone. Serotonin is the main pleasure hormone. So unless you really enjoy working out, there won't be dopamine. Sorry for the all the science. A bit of a nerd here.

This nerdy discussion interests me.

Or endorphins

Baruch Hashem, today I wasted much less time and I actually learned a bit (applause). There's still a long way to go but it's about progress not perfection. I met my sponsor we discussed steps 1 2 & 3. He gave me an exercise in the morning to stop and say out loud step my powerlessness and how I'm hopeless, then to say how I've seen and heard of many people in the groups recover and I can recover as well if I rely on the same power they rely on. Finally, I should say I am willing to give my life over to that power (God) and I'm willing to do whatever He wants from me today. 
I've seen my sponsor recover (he joined SA after me) so I want to rely on his words #JUSTFORTODAY

#justfortoday, thats the way to go. I also say that prayer every morning and during the day when needed. 
It helps greatly.

Its 525 am motzaei tisha bav. My son (baruch Hashem) is not feeling well I just spent like an hour plus walking rocking etc. . I'm full of emotional pain. I need to see my therapist ASAP I commit to calling him today too see if he has an appointment. I made a bunch of mistakes (bh not lust related just simple embarrassing stuff) and I'm beating myself up about it. I'm frustrated that I'm not talking do my mother. But I'm grateful that I got the opportunity to share my difficulties on the phone with a member last night/ tonight which is probably the reason I'm still sober.

Keep sober and keep sharing that is what helping me. Don't beat yourself up for the past and concentrate on the present because that is where we live. Enjoy the present
