WHY INTEREST IS LESS AFTER REBOOT

1. More distance less interest.
Like memory or any other forms of contact, the less contact we have, the weaker the neuro connection, the weaker the interest until it is normalized like any other contact.

2. Real relationships reveals the falsehood of fake relationships.
With decreased fake relationships comes increased real relationships with both ourselves and others.
Next comes the realization of the fakeness of this addiction.
It is like tasting real food after eating synthetics for a long time. We cannot possibly be interested in it again.

IMPULSE CONTROL

It happens to us now and then.
The familiar urges and sensations, arising out of the blue, demanding attention, no reason needed.
Do you give in or not?
When you do , regret ensues
When you don't, another victory gained, another lesson learned.
Everything passes, even this.
Looking back, a moment of temptation.
I did not succumb.
I remain on my journey.

POST PMO IMPACT

Largest impacts following PMO

1. Delusion and Entitlement
PMO makes me believe things are achievable quickly and easily. Little effort is needed.
I become less able to handle real world challenges.

2. Emotional imbalance
In this addiction, relationships are one sided.
This confuses me in real world and I have difficulty adjusting and behaving correctly.

3. Satiation and laziness
PMO satiates. Dopamine is released, leading to weakened drive and motivation.
This leads to laziness and lack of effort.
Future outcomes and benefits are reduced.

These are the long term price of addiction.


I quit because I desire:
1. No false sense of entitlement
2. Emotional stability
3. Continued effort and success
4. Grounded and in touch with reality
