. Thanks for your words of encouragement. The latest relapse makes me realize my main weakness, which is emotional management. That's what I should focusing on.
Are you using facebook as well? Sometimes I wonder whether it is helpful or not to stay away from it. I communicate with my far-away friends through that medium. Yet, I try my best to spend each evening to hang-out with at least a friend nearby my home-town.
About the ERP, I started to leave the exercise when I had a period of sobriety (perhaps about 20 days clean). Sometimes, it's so boring to do it. I had been using it since the very first time I know Alex's website. I had gone through the period of failures when practicing it, yet this technique also helped me to stay sober after I gained understanding of it. I can't remember which friend's journal, but there's some period of time which we may leave the exercise. Perhaps, after 2 months, or 3 months?
Hey.. Being sober for a long period may increase the testosterone level, right?
I couldn't stop looking at girls when I was clean for a long time. Even felt the tendency to flirt. Do you experience the same?
Go for it, my friend. There are 12 days left before day 60. I pray for your success.
