One of my primary motivations of abstaining from and removing porn from my life is to get rid of the horrendous brian fog i have been experiencing.
When i came across ybop and no fap, i have heard of remarkable recoveries of lost mental functions, and im preying that this is the cause of my brain problems.
For about two or three years now i have had a steady decline in mental functioning. It literally feels like part of my brain is shut off. What i have particulary noticed is a disctinct lack of the visual pictures in my minds eye. I tend to be a visual thinker so this is a big deal. Years ago i almost had a photographic memory.
Im only on day 9 and i have noticed some increase in my mental fogginess.
My question is have any of you guys experienced this loss of mental imagery problem, or general brain fog?
Did it improve with time away from the PMO'ing?
How long did it take to get back to normal.
What im also unclear is the actual physiology aspect of how this brain fog develops. Is it to do with the depletion of D2? receptors? Or is it to do with the loss of all the minerals/vitamins in semen? Yes i know it sounds like a daggy question but im really interested in knowing how this stuff works.
Any other tips for regaining the mental function other than abstaining? Supplements, diet, exercise etc?
