Thanks bro! It's true. All the time wasted edging to porn. But not only that, it's also the time "wasted" somehow because of having no drive after binges, feeling lethargic etc.Congrats on reaching 10 days man.
I think when you resist urges and look back at how you spent that time instead is also a motivator.
Something that I hate to look back on how much time I lost to acting out. I think its empowering to gain all this extra time in life that we can use on more meaningful activities.
It's the truth. I kept myself medicated with porn and alcohol and my problems were at arm's length all the time, they were there but their energy was faint. I stopped alcohol and porn and now they're beating me up as we speak. It's like one of those Rocky movies, I'm getting beaten the hell out and I'm yet to find a way to win.Never feels good to have to come face to face with our problems. But only when we face them do we have the opportunity to fix them. And they can all be fixed. You've got this.
You may be lonely but remember you are not alone. You got a community here who are cheering you on. 12 days!? Heck yeah! You got this!Day 12
Depressed, lonely and frustrated. But I guess it is what it is. It's when you throw away the bad medicine that you are forced to change. May this suffering be the catalyst for my transformation.
Thanks man. I appreciate the support.Stay focused Escape!
The binge eating and all that negative stuff that's going in your head is just part of the withdrawals. It doesn't mean anything and you're only sabotaging yourself by indulging in it.
What means something is you're almost half a month free from PMO and going strong.
Cut yourself some slack, keep doing what you're doing, keep racking up those days. Don't worry about your life. The priority here is quitting PMO and this is the first, big, fundamental step towards fixing it.
You got this!
Thanks for advice.Hey you're crushing it. The fact that it's hard just makes it that more awesome. One thing I have been finding as I am finally letting myself face some of the problems that led me to PMO is that I don't have all the answers on how to fix them. Instead been doing a lot of research on them, finding books and stuff that discuss the issue and how to solve them, and books on how to change generally. Been helping me be a lot more hopeful about fixing things because I actually am able to develop science based action plans. And I do think it's working slowly but surely.
