Do we know what causes the brain worm sensation? As far as I can tell it is linked to addiction and recovery as it seems to only get triggered by thoughts related to topics of possible addiction. I also wonder if people addicted to healthy things like working out get these same worms. Is it like an inner child trowing a tantrum internally or more like a wormhole. I can't quite figure that out. It also can feel a little like a headache, but it is more focused and directional.
It has been a while since I've managed to get past two weeks without orgasm. I read about others feeling bursts of energy when abstaining. I don't recall that happening, but I was under a lot of stress last time around. I'm thinking of using the goal of not feeling tired as a more positive goal than avoiding orgasm as a way to get myself back on track. I also like this goal because this goal is more within my control than say finding a partner where I cannot fully control success. To support my goal, I'm looking for some more info on the energy gain, the process, etc.
Does anyone have tips, book suggestions, etc. for remaining in control when tired? I've noticed that when I'm exhausted it can be a lot harder to fight any mind games.
I'm trying to figure out why I was doing well for a period and am sliding backward at the moment. It is kind of weird as I can at times feel what seems like my brain shuffling the wires around. I notice it more now on the downward trend than when I was on the upward trend. It is a bit like getting a headache in slow motion, but the headache never comes. It is a bit hard to sort out what brought about this current trend because too many things are always going on at the same time such that I don't know what causes what.
