So after a year and some change of being unemployed, I finally landed myself a job. My life has made an improvement of sorts to itself. My question is how do I continue to turn my life around completely and fully heading in the direction in needs to go?
An example of my life right now is that every Saturday I’m going to confession and it’s for mostly the same things over and over again (to the point I think the priest is getting tired of hearing me), the usual vices being porn and masurbation, with some gluttony and wrath from time to time.
How do I stop this? Cold turkey doesn’t work for me and I’ve been confessing the same things every Saturday for the past year. I walk out of confession with every intent to do better but two or three days later I’m back to square one. My act of co friction sometimes feels hollow to me. The best I’ve been able to do is about a couple of weeks. What can I do to break the old routine and start a new one?
