Hi Carl, thanks for your reply. For now, my purpose is to escape from my addiction. And beside i want to be a better person from me right me. But recently i feel this addiction become stronger than before. Thanks again for your attention, i really appreciate it
I'll definitely check it out. And yeah, you are right about fap didn't help us to sleep. But for me it is happen automatically. Whenever i cannot sleep, i fapping. It had become an habitSure. I think the most important thing is to understand that 1) you have a chemical addiction, 2) that addiction brings you no advantages.
The key is to make your mind understand first, then you will stop naturally. Don't try to force yourself to stop porn using willpower. You must understand that there are zero advantages, so there's nothing to lose.
I know you said English is hard for you, but could you try reading this guide I wrote, and tell me what you think? I can explain any section you don't understand. There are 35 short words (sections).
I have problems sleeping too and I've noticed recently that it could happen when I overstimulate my brain. It makes my brain hyperactive and then I don't sleep well, many times at all or 2 hours. And porn is a source of overstimulation for the brain. Actually just recently this happened, I only slept for 2 hours from 10 PM to midnight and then I spent the next 4 hours in agitation, turning in bed. What I had done earlier that day? 4 PMO. Alcohol has a similar effect to my brain too. Some time ago after being away from alcohol and porn for a while, I would go to sleep at 10 and wake up at 6 without moving.You mentioned sleep.
A non-user can go to sleep just fine.
They actually feel like a normal person, and aren’t trying to get disgusting thoughts out of their head. They can stick to a consistent bedtime schedule. They go to bed feeling relaxed, not drained, and have motivation and focus to plan what they want to do the next day (and then subconsciously sleep on those thoughts).
Porn does not help you sleep. That is a ridiculous lie.
