Minimal intrusive thoughts again today but I got through them! Instead of downplaying them like I did during my least streak, this time I tried to get them out of my had asap. It worked!
Cutting out the tech seems to be the way to go. I am now trying to only use my computer and phone when I absolutely need to. If those are where the problem is, then I can minimize their impact on my life.
My life is so stressful right now. My brain has tried to convince me that PMOing to relieve the tension is a good idea. I'm not letting it have any of it.
I will continue to cut out tech as much as possible.
Even though my streak is only 1 week now, I have only done PMO twice in the last 23 days. Much better than my life before this.
Life is stressful. The urges to PMO are really strong but I am getting through them. If anyone is reading this, how long have you found it to take before they get easier? I'm taking them more seriously than before as I have learned from my relapse before.
