Hi I'm Mr_8. I stumbled up on this site and yourbrainonporn.com last week. I've suffered from anxiety and self confidence issues for much of my life. I had suspected part of it was do to PMO but always felt it was difficult stop. I hooked like a drug addict. Several years ago I had quit for about 3 months and those 3 months I was happier than I had been all my life. I had socialized with people, went on dates with women and was more confident than ever. However...for whatever reason out boredom...or habit...I relapsed. I went down a spiral of depression and even contemplated suicide. Since then it has been a struggle...until now!!!
I am on day 21 being PMO free and I'm not looking back!!! This reboot is working out great...after I got past the 2 weeks stage I started to see the apparent results. Diminished anxiety, more confidence, and even better vocal tonality. I feel like I am becoming normal again...like the person I am suppose to be. Women are noticing me again and I can genuinely have a conversation with them. I feel like I'm connecting with people in generally better. I am even performing better athletically, I feel stronger...faster and sharper. It is as though the fog has been lifted! I'm 29 years old and now I feel like I have the energy that I had in my teens. My goal is to be PMO free for the rest of my life!!! The momentum I feel is stronger than a cheap thrill that PMO brings. I look foward to living and not hiding anymore. Taking back control is the most liberating thing I've felt in such a long time.
Thank you Marnia and Gary having this information out there. I am forever changed as I plan moving forward from here on!
