Depression can be a withdrawal symptom. So don’t assume you’ll always be depressed. If it’s a withdrawal symptom, it will pass and life will no longer look grayDay 19
Still doing very well in terms of my streak, going almost three weeks in absolute hard mode and not drinking alcohol at all.
This time it comes along with depression, I experienced this at former reboot attempts, but it’s still hard to handle.
My brain starts rationalizations like “Look, there is no magic powers from quitting porn, you might as well live with this addiction!” and combined with really feeling low, I have to be very very careful now.
Subconsciously I sometimes do expect some magic powers as some of the success stories fuel unrealistic expectations, but on the other hand it hasn’t even been three weeks now that can not reverse years and years of addiction.
I need to be patient and consistent, two more days until completing three weeks and then get through the weekend.
So try not to identify with depression as being the real you.
