I found this site when I needed it the most. I learned so much about the neurochemical effects of p/m/o from the clearly written articles on the main site. Thank you so much for the great resource! I decided to join the forum so I can keep track of my addiction recovery journey and to get some support when the going gets rough.
I'm a classic p/m/o addict. I've been riding that roller coaster for over 20 years now. I knew I had a major problem when I experienced erectile disfunction for the first time in my life a few weeks ago. Since then, I've been doing a lot of research on all matters of sexuality and I fortunately ended up here.
I've been "o" free for 5 days now (p/m free for 3) and I feel so much better. I'm setting a loose goal to stay p/m/o free until my first wet dream. I'll definitely take the advice from the welcome message and not be too crazy about it. I'm going to gently favor other things (e.g., playing guitar, working out, karezza with my girlfriend, etc) until I can determine the right "o" cycle for me. My ideal is to find some kind of balance in which I can enjoy p/m/o on occasion without the negative side effects (satiation depression, loss of sexual vigor and desire, etc.)
Anyways, I'm looking forward to talking to you all and continuing our wonderful journeys of self enrichment.
