Thanks all for the positive feedback
Bit of background information: I'm now 34, started masturbating at about 13, but the PMO went really bad when i went living on my own with unlimited internet access. I did it 2-6 hours a day... or longer. Never really had a gf because i'm very shy. Met my gf when i was 29, where i found out i couldn't keep hard or get hard when making love to her. After a while i fell back to using PMO behind her back, i escalated into more hardcore things, i couldn't stop it though. Went to a sexuologist to which i said i didn't really wanted to give it up just yet, a psychiater who didn't see anything wrong with it basically, and followed the advice on yourbrainonporn... which apparently cured me
Now i'm still going to the group to not fall back, and understand more of it, and get better still.
The changes all got very gradually, i didn't need the full 10 months to see the most important changes, but still, i do not feel completely better mostly with the libido.
If i had to pinpoint a time where i saw the biggest physical change, was about 3-4 months after stopping. I noticed that i could get hard again with my girlfriend instead of needing porn/ fantasy. I say physical, because my mental state was still pretty bad, in that i was kinda an ass to my girlfriend... before stopping PMO i had alot less emotion then now, and also the stopping triggered withdrawal which made me angry (at not being able to do PMO even though its a subconscious process, for example i always wanted to leave my relation and that was because of the PMO).
My diet was pretty good at some point during this process (grilled meat with only using olive oil never butter or so, rice, not the most vegetables) but it has gone bad alot the last couple of months, now i have been eating mostly 'already done' meals bought in the grocery, or ordering food. We're planning on picking up the healthy diet again though
. I'm not sure if it had anything to do with me getting better. I think really the stopping PMO (and fantasy!) is the cause for getting better, for me that is, if using healthy diets work for others, use it of course! About my fitness, i dont work out, i'm rather too thin then too big, weighing 75 kg or so (160 lbs? not sure not american). In general i'd say i'm healthy.
Any other questions i'm of course happy to help
it is nice to be a bit on the 'bright side of things' for once
and i hope more people will see this side!
