Day 5:

Tough day because my gf is away and not so reachable for a few days. Youd think it would make this easier, but it doesn't.

On the other hand, new formulation of the Taphsic method has been really helpful a few times so far. Also, I found that if I have stronger urges, I meditate for five minutes using this meditation app I found and it is a great distraction. Also helps clear the mind from stress is helpful in itself.

Hey whats up keep up the great work 

Another thing that could really help in the face of powerfull urges is  to call someone ,theres alot of good people here that make themselves available to talk to those who want to talk , and as so many people have vouch for  and im just discovering for myself - it really could help.

wishing you the best

Unfortunately I have been distracted from my goal for a while. Plan to start trying in earnest again (posting more, using the tools).

What's the difference between a sponsor and partner? I need to start speaking to someone for this to work.

Day 5: Every night this week, after work I gone to the gym. I found it useful to distract from becoming possibly bored and falling. It also seems like the whole week been more full of energy and less stressful. I also feel the withdrawal effects less right after exhausting.

Day 7:  Sunday mornings are tough. I made it through, but the block of time doing nothing before my Sunday chavrusa starts is dangerous for me. I am going schedule in some weekly activity on Sundays in that spot going forward to help keep me busy.

Day 9: So I was thinking, on the 90 day chart, the further along you get, you hit different levels, and with each level you receive a virtual coin. According to Wikipedia, studies show connection between the visual presence of the AA sobriety coin and the holder's self resolve. I feel like those benefits aren't existent when you can only open a virtual coin. Maybe GYE should consider implementing an ability to have physical coins sent to users to take advantage of what those studies show. I assume those who attend SA or PA live meetings already receive them, but for those who don't (and maybe don't need to), that physical reminder of your success might be a helpful tool.

But they were virtual, no real change

So you can win the lottery too... virtually

Can't say I agree with that assessment at all. But appreciate the advice.

Day 10: The hardest part of the day is the large amount of self control needed when I wake up in the morning. Otherwise feeling really happy I have made it back to ten days and will make sure to go to the gym tonight again.
