When things go wrong, don’t go with them.

The core signs and symptoms of sex and porn addiction are generally the same regardless of age, race, gender, social history, and psychological underpinnings. For instance, nearly all sex and porn addicts experience withdrawal. With sex and porn addiction, withdrawal tends to manifest not so much physically, as often occurs with substance abuse (i.e., delirium tremens when detoxing from alcohol), but emotionally and psychologically. In withdrawal, we tend to become depressed, anxious, restless, irritable, and discontent.

Task for Today
Try to think about being in a poor mood as a form of withdrawal that will pass as you establish your sobriety.
