Flashbacks seem to be a very common phase of recovery.Made it through day six.
Now I’m not sure if anyone else has had this, but I’ve been having what I can only call intense flashbacks. Yes, flashbacks to porn. When my mind wanders it sometimes lands on images that I have used a lot in the past, and comes with an intense rush of those same feelings, followed by the craving.
On top of this, I have been swarmed with intense sex dreams the last couple of nights. It seems by brain is just lashing out any way it can!
I know this is that part of my brain trying to get its fix, and that it is all a part of recovery. But damn each time hits hard, and I have to fight that part of myself back down.
I expect another long day ahead. But determination is still high and I’m feeling confident.
It is amazing what a difference it can be from one day to the next. And things have certainly been smoother sailing today. I feel like I have some of my sanity back for a start.hey great job getting through yesterday, it seems like there are certain timeframes that are like barriers and once we get through them things get much easier, for me i noticed around the 2 week mark, around day 30 and then again around 45-50, the days around those timeframes were tough for some reason. Then things got noticeably easier after that, both on my current reboot and the one from last year. You might find you have timeframes that are just tougher, but get through those and things get better.
