The path of recovery has many twists. It is wise to carry a map.

Sexual boundary plans are created for a variety of reasons: helping addicts to understand the nature of their addiction and to define their personal version of sexual sobriety; identifying “slippery” areas to watch out for; and, perhaps most importantly, providing addicts with guidance when they are triggered and unsure about what to do next. Knowing this, many recovering sex addicts choose to carry printed (or digitized) versions of their boundary plan with them at all times. That way, when they are triggered they can look at their inner boundary to see which behaviors are prohibited, and they can look at their outer boundary for a handy list of healthy alternatives.

Just for Today:
Carry your sexual boundary plan with you. See if having it with you provides a level of comfort. Think about carrying it with you tomorrow as well.
