Hello, I’m biz and have recently discovered this problem,beautiful girl I was flirting with for a while and did not perform.

I wanted to know has anyone successfully recovered by continuing to M without P materials?

I’m four days in and I do get bouts of anxiety, and I guess M has always helped with it.

Hi Biz.
Congrats on th efour days, thats a long time when youve got PMO addiction.
In my case, i was successful despite masturbating throughout my whole reboot. obviously not to porn, but it didnt detrimentally effect me. if its not to any artificial stimuli, then why not?

Did you start by trying to go cold turkey, do you think M, set you back some time? Also did you have any expereince with viagra, what are your thoughts regarding this? Thanks

i actually found that wanking helped to curb the urges to PMO.
no, i have no expereince with any willy enhancing meds. if there is a blood flow problem or some other physical problem with your cock then a doctor may be able to advise you on that, but if the dick problem is purely realted to your PMO addiction then the only way to cure that is to reboot.

Woke up today, got better sleep than yesterday but still a little disturbed, during my tossing and turning sleep I was able to get a bit of an some MW. But feels like I got some rem. I felt a need to M yesterday strongly but I concentrated on the man I wanted to be in the future, with kids and a happy wife, and I thought about why I began this journey. I laughed yesterday a bit about the situation I got myself into recklessly and without knowing.

For you rebooted out there, I got some questions, thank you for the help.

The first is about strip clubs, I got some friends who visit them, should I abstain? Does this negatively impact my journey?

Also dating apps, should I delete those? I haven’t viewed them, but how does this effect my mind? I think what got me here was edging. Thank you guys and good luck on your respective journeys.

New day, yesterday wasn’t bad, didn’t even think of M much. I had a dream about humping a girl I liked, never had wet dream, but this I imagine wasn’t that. It was nice having fantasy though, I immediately woke up though as it disturbed my sleep. I find plotting ahead of what I’m going to do in my free time to be beneficial to staying focused. Here’s to another day, keeping the streak going.

Day 9 Yesterday was the hardest day by a mile, i sexted a girl and couldnt sleep as i had fantasies about her. I am so early in my reboot process, i can't stop thinking about sex with her. I need time to heal. Sex with this girl is acting on my fetishes, I want to meet 90 days then slowly date a girl. That’s my goal

New day, second week is challenging, i feel sluggish and anxious at times, i thought flatlining happens later in process, i just started my reboot, and get hard for nothing. Regardless im going to truck through this hardmode, i feel good about day 10, this was a brilliant decision to go home, im literally seeing ppl all day, which makes me accountable in these early stages.

I used to practically live in strip clubs but when I quit drinking I stopped going. My porn use replaced my strip club activities. For me personally it was all Sex Addiction. Porn use Strip Clubs and my relationships. It's been 13 years since I've been in a strip club. Back in the day there was a lot of contact that could be had. I'm not sure what goes on now. I would suggest staying away from strip clubs.

Hello guys this second week is a fuckin grind, so much will i need right now. I navigated through the day, i read somewhere the physical craving smooth after 3rd week, i really hope thats true. I am getting so many thoughts, and honestly sexting some women i have been with in the past. But im still going strong with no M or P or O.

Day 12

New day, i'm feeling good about my resolve. I plan early things i plan to enjoy on the day, it keeps me healthy and happy. Im already getting some MW during the day though not anything lol. Im not being hard on myself, sat i smoked weed again, but i'm not perfect. Porn is more important to me that i kick. Stay strong fellas, every day feels harder, but everyday the light at the end of the tunnel grows.

My job is stressful, so i need to be diligent and always observant of why im doing this.

For my friends who have experienced longer streaks, when do I start getting good sleep?
Hello Biz, that is a good question unfortunately anxiety or lack of sleep differs from person to person. I had trouble sleeping until day 12. But also I have been going to the gym, and reading so I will be exhausted when I go to bed. But this problems of sleeping shows that getting cleaned from this addicting (PMO) takes time and produces other effects. Continue working hard man, any moment you will start feeling better. Great job reaching day 12!

Hi yall, im lying down for the night, ive seen discussions of flatlines happening a few weeks in, i think i hit a flatline as soon as i started this process, had one vivid dream, and some morning wood, but no movement somedays anxious, some days ridiculously tired others hard to concentrate. Has anyone ever experienced a flat line pretty much out the gate? How did your healing process go?

Read the book “your brain in porn” you will find all your symptoms there. It is really good and you can find it on the net

Hi fellow rebooters,

weird sleep, I woke up in the middle of the night, and felt like I had been M but no P was involved and no O (I’m pretty positive no O). I’m also not sure if I was dreaming, and just imagined the situation, my first thing I remember being reality was me thinking wtf you doing, and ceasing whatever happened that I thought might’ve taken place. Any which way I’m still in a flatline and I’m tired, and I think I have a brain fog. Any which way I’m going to still keep my counter at 14 days hardmode, every day is a new experience and I won’t be hard on myself, no pun intended.
