keep trying itll all click one day. it took me 2 years and 3 months to finally be able to stay clean
Clean for 6 days, today is the 7th day
12 full days have passed
15 full days have passed, having a hard time recently, defence of my master thesis is on next Tuesday and I need to learn a lot but I can't focus. not linking it to no-PMO, if I did PMO I'd still have the same problems.
One month mark
There is not much to add because not much has changed. One month, while seems impressive, didn't bring any significant improvement when it comes to shifting the arousal from pixel women to real ones. I know from experience that this will happen in about 2 months so just gotta wait patiently, if I stay strong, my sexuality will be normal in few months. Can't wait.
Yes, it takes longer to feel aroused by contact with real women, but it's a good feeling when it happens. It actually took me a bit by surprise when it happened.
yes!! lets go dude. you can do this. lol im more proud than i should be but as a fellow sufferer of this fetish i cant help being happy for you
Relapsed od 14/02/18
Relapsed on 15/02/18 again. Back to square one, never losing hope
Unlucky man, I know you know this but try to learn from your screw up and mix things up, try something new
I have no idea what else can I try...
Relapsed on 18/02/18
So today is day 2 and day 3 starts in less than hour. It isn't achievement but at least I can provide some feedback on what changed after I relapsed. After a little binge (6-7 orgasm to porn) women became much less appealing in real life. I ate lunch with coworker and while she's interesting person, from arousal standpoint it was kind of meh. It reinforces the point that I was already aware of - if I'm using porn, real women have ZERO chance to compete with that.
How can a real person in front of you compete with a fantasy?? It got that screwed up for me that I actually thought ‘would I rather sleep with my favourite pornstar or masturbate over her at home?’ And I would have rather masturbated over her. And probably would have got bored of that and moved on after a few minutes for more novelty. That’s pathetic. But it’s what porn does to us., craving something that isn’t even real. Porn really is poison to those who develop a regular habit with it.. I curse the day I masturabted to porn and I don’t want to damage my brain with it again! Just my two cents.. keep up the good fight
@1234dyl Good points, I agree. Logically it makes sense but in reality I fall into the same trap over and over again.
Relapsed on Feb, 25th.
I’m sorry to hear you relapsed.. dont binge, and keep learning about PMO and the damage it causes
keep reading success stories and try to implement something new into your routine. Don’t lose hope mate
Last relapse on March, 3rd.
I'm not losing hope. Recovering from PIED is my only way to be fulfilled as a man, it's the most important thing that I have to achieve. Thank you for your support!
Relapsed on March, 8th.
Relapsed on March, 18th.
Recovering from PIED should be enough for us to stop using.. we need to address our problems and take responsibility and action to rectify it.
Or at least rule out pied as the causing factor. So you’ve got to give yourself a fighting chance in life man!! Best of luck this streak.
Relapsed on March, 19th. Terrible streak recently.
