Those words “ you’re rewiring your brain “ hit me hard and gives the motivation I need to keep going . Thanks brotherKeep crushing it! I know, it's strange how you can know so fully it's affecting you negatively and yet still are craving it. You're rewiring your brain every time you feel the urge and make a different choice
Kudos on picking yourself up! That can be the hardest thing to do after you fall. But you are still young and still have time to nip this in the bud. Keep on keep in’ onHey guys ! Today is day 1 of a battle that has spanned 15 years . I’m 27 now but I started masturbation and porn addiction when I was 12 . I am today deciding to pick myself up and fight before it’s too late because I have noticed the first signs of PIED . I will try and be updating this thread on my struggles. Wish me luck
I'm getting to that spot, good luck with it and keep etrong!Day 25
I am so horny tonight that I’m beginning to wonder is this normal ??? I want to get my fix soo bad . I usually read a lot about the flatline but how is the reverse the case in mine ? It’s almost a week of wanting to just Fuck! My brain is doing so much to make me look at porn but I am fighting!
I'm happy to see you did it through the urges!Day 30
been a busy few 2 days and didn’t have time to journal in but two days ago my girlfriend was back and we got into , I was having this blockers in my head for whatever reason when we were making out and couldn’t concentrate, was worried soo much about my dick standing that I didn’t concentrate on what we were doing and I had to stop . Later on she gave me head and although I did have an erection and orgasmed from it I still felt if I tried to attempt sex maybe my dick would loose its erection so I just stayed there and enjoyed the head . I guess I was too scared to even try . I don’t know but this anxiety isn’t helping , this first time this happened to me 30days ago shook me and it’s been worrying me ever since if I’m ever gonna get back to peak performances like in the past even when I was consuming Porn and PMO’n I still had peak performances although the crave for sex the real thing was at a low level as regards the crave for porn . I need to get these blockers out of my head . Anyways today is day 30!!! I made it without consuming porn and this was my initial goal so today I’m going to be gunning for another 30! A few months ago this didn’t seem possible but I am moving away from this life in hope that everything returns to normal for me . Selah
Thank you for your kind words , since I started this journey somedays great , some days normal but all in all I will have to get th anxiety off and I know I willI'm happy to see you did it through the urges!
I think performance anxiety can be very normal, especially if you have PIED.
I had the same with my girlfriend when we were starting (1year ago). I was very anxious and self aware, but it helped us a lot that I was honest with her and I tolde her that I was nervous and anxious and that I didn't had an erection sometimes because of that. The same with delayed ejaculation (also porn induced, btw).
She was very understanding and we were still enjoying sex a lot, it was just that penetration and/or orgasm wasn't the main goal.
Over time (very little amount of time, btw) I got over it and it went better.
Keep in mind that is normal, and that it do gets better!!
