Title: The YourBrainRebalanced Radio Show - Video Podcast w/ Gabe Deem and Gary Wilson!
Post by: Charlie Marcotte on May 27, 2014, 12:35:53 AM
The YourBrain Rebalanced Radio Show - Episode 12 is up and running!

Hey everyone! The title says it all. Apeman, Jeff and I (members of another porn addiction website) have decided to do a 8 part radio show that tackles issues on pornography addiction, PIED, rebooting, rewiring and just life as a pornography addict. The show is recorded on Skype (hopefully weekly, but it will probably be slightly more irregular than that) and we will hopefully be having special guests for each episode. As of right now, the show is audio only. It's available for streaming and download!

The show's format is casual - we're really not too concerned if we get off topic and chat about other things that aren't apart of each episode "topic". The goal of this show is to provide content where pornography addicts interact and communicate with each other, hopefully humanizing the condition a little bit more. While this forum is a fantastic resource, most of us only communicate through typing, which can make our interactions impersonal and distant. This show hopes to make this condition a little more human for everybody.

As of right now, we are shooting for 8 episodes and we will gauge the feedback after that to see if it's helpful and if we should keep going. The topics for all the episodes aren't worked out yet so definitely post and talk about topics you'd like to hear about. PLEASE PLEASE. And also if you'd like to be on the show freakin' let me know!!

SEASON 1


EPISODE 1-9

https://soundcloud.com/yourbrainrebalancedshow

Season 1 of the YBR show was filled with a lot of great moments. Interviews with Gabe Deem, Noah Church, and Gary Wilson are featured in the following episodes. We cover a range of topics, stemming from "Starting the Reboot" to "Porn Addiction and Modern Science and Research". Enjoy friends! :D

SEASON 2

EPISODE 10

Season 2 is back of the YourBrainRebalanced Show! At least, that's what we will call our hiatus. ;) Only Daniel (Jeff) and Charlie (fugu) were available for this short introductory episode - BUT DON'T FEAR. Jack (Apeman) will be back with us shortly, and guests will be a part of future shows. We simply talked about what we've been doing the last few months and answered a few old questions.

EPISODE 11

Season 2, episode 2 of the YBR show features Jack (Apeman), Noah Church (Spangler), and Charlie Marcotte (fugu) in a general discussion about pornography addiction and challenges we have individually faced during the course of rebooting. The topics were wide ranging, but the podcast is filled with a lot of great conversation. Check out this fantastically funny and informational presentation (almost stand up routine) Noah did on porn addiction and pornography induced ED back in November: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GXtEcQGLWW8

EPISODE 12

This episode of the YBR show discusses all of the important, helpful activities one can do during a reboot that'll improve your quality of life. Daniel Simmons has returned from his meditation sabbatical (!!!) to give us first hand knowledge and experience about the boons of meditating. Noah Church and Charlie Marcotte are just ignorant. ;) ;) ;)

Towards the end of the episode we answered a few fans questions that were particularly engaging...shout out to OSS from RebootNation for asking great questions and listening to us for a long time. :)

EPISODE 13

In this episode of the YBR show, Gabe Deem and Gary Wilson join Charlie "Fugu" Marcotte and Noah "Spangler" Church to discuss common pornography myths and misconceptions. After the topic discussion, the cast chatted about a variety of pornography addiction and pornography induced sexual dysfunction topics. It was a really good discussion and we always love having those two on the show. The SoundCloud file will be up soon with streaming and download access - but, for now, here is the YouTube video. With our talking heads.  8) Enjoy!

Next episode is coming in a few days with special guest Spangler! He wrote a great book on PMO addiction is putting out some GREAT content on YouTube on the subject.

Any suggestions for topics? Any questions for Spangler or the rest of the crew?

Has any of the crew, Spangler included ever dealt with derealization/depersonalization (some say it's simply heavy brain fog) and how it effects them and their rebooting? I realise it's a broad question but curious if anyone has anything to share about it and over coming it while rebooting.

Cheers

Hey everyone! The new episode with author of "Wack: Addicted to Internet Porn" Noah Church is live! This was a great episode and Noah has some really great insight. His YouTube channel is top notch. Check it out!

As usual, post in questions or comments you want answered for future episodes.

CRAP, we didn't see this question when we were doing the show. I'll ask Spangler about it and he'll get back to you on this thread!

Great, thanks!

I had an intense moment (I think it was towards the end of the show) when you guys were talking about how real life is only about 5% sex. Struck me hard to realise I base almost everything I do in day to day life on sex and sexual interaction.

Yeah I still suffer sometimes from that 'sex-centric' thinking. Fortunately, being aware of it is crazy helpful and big win in itself.

I sent Spangler a message with your question, let's see what he says!
Title: Re: The YourBrainRebalanced Radio Show - New episode w/ Noah Church live!
Post by: Spangler on July 13, 2014, 02:52:46 PM
By depersonalization, you mean the feeling of being outside of yourself or being disengaged with reality? Looking back, yes I have had many experiences like this, but they were never severe or long-lasting enough for me to seek help with them. I haven't felt this way in awhile, and that may very well be related to no PMO. Do you find that depersonalization causes you to give into urges more easily?
Title: Re: The YourBrainRebalanced Radio Show - New episode w/ Noah Church live!
Post by: OSS on July 14, 2014, 02:21:25 AM
It kicked in after my first panic attack in January when I reached about 25 days no arousal streak. I stayed porn free for a further 100 days and I still had it but it did get dramatically better. Initially it was like I was dreaming 24/7 for weeks, I thought everything around me was fake. Best way I can describe it is like I'm "stuck behind my eyes" or in a dream-like state. Conciousness feels wobbly and it's like I can't focus on stuff that I look at. I'm reasonably confident it's anxiety related. I've never really felt outside of myself, but definitely disengaged with reality

Mainly just curious if any long term rebooters have experienced it.

Hmm... I don't believe it has effected my urge or relapse rate directly, it adds to the depression and anxiety but I have only relapsed due to feeling down very few times anyway.

Thanks for the response
Title: Re: The YourBrainRebalanced Radio Show - New episode w/ Noah Church live!
Post by: Spangler on July 14, 2014, 03:19:52 AM
You're the first I've spoken with to describe those exact experiences, but the mental/emotional state of many rebooters goes through a huge flux as withdrawals kick in and the brain strives to find a new balance. If this journey gave you a panic attack, I have no doubt that it may bring about other such severe symptoms such as depersonalization. It can take many months without porn to adjust to your new reality, but after long enough all withdrawal symptoms should resolve. If it doesn't, then it may have another cause, and I'd recommend seeing a professional.

After your 100 days you went back to porn? How did that affect the depersonalization?
Title: Re: The YourBrainRebalanced Radio Show - New episode w/ Noah Church live!
Post by: OSS on July 14, 2014, 04:22:45 AM
There were definitely other factors involved but they had never really affected me due to the emotional numbing porn caused. But once that anxiety hit all those previous factors started to flood in emotionally also. It was the first time ever achieving 25 days no arousal. Thanks for the encouraging words.

Yeah I did go back to porn so, I'll try lay this out for you...

Day 26, (no arousal) - Panic attack
Day 42, first MO, no porn (didn't negatively impact anxiety or DP, it just stalled progress)
Days 42 - 120, I was Ming about 3x per month, peeked on google images maybe 2 or 3 times (nothing major, bikini girls)
Day 120 (early April), Binged on tube sites for a few days

Days 26 to about 50. I was non functional, shaking and crying with anxiety for most of my waking hours, heavy DP. I still get anxiety over nothing and I'm really really sensitive to things like CSI seeing a dead bodies on tv etc. But I'm now mostly functional and the DP is 60% improved, anxiety is improved.

So as for your question lol.... Going back to porn stalled the progress I had made on the depersonalization as well as my anxiety progress. Coincidently hit 26 days no porn, 5 days no MO today and my anxiety has definitely increased the past few days. DP acutely increases if I get into a panic cycle.

Sorry for these walls of texts lol but there are so many variables I feel it's a bit easier to understand with more info

Fugu, I have a question for the you and/or the crew. It's semi complex, may just be easier to answer via message rather than on the show but anyway here it is.. Sorry, it is a bit of a heavy question.

I'm in a situation where I'm not really sure what I want to do. I'll put it in cliff format for convenience

- Currently 18 turning 19 soon, living at home
- I wish to move to a different city, I do not like my current city and it's an opportunity for personal growth etc
- Don't know what I want to do for a job/career (If I wish to study it won't be until 2017 or so)
- I feel like moving would benefit me, but at the same time would be incredibly hard if withdrawals got any worse
- Not sure if the only reason my brain is telling me to move city is because of withdrawals which makes my city feel depressing and shitty, creating the illusion of moving being like an escape. Even though the thought of moving gives me anxiety lol

Sorry if you're not really sure what I'm trying to say but...

My question is basically, while I have these withdrawals of depression/anxiety should I be making serious life decisions? Or should I just wait it out, live at home in comfort until the withdrawals are gone so my judgment isn't so clouded?

Thanks a lot!

Hey OSS, I just wanna say as someone who's lived in his city of birth his entire life, as a matter of fact, I've even lived my entire life in the same house (And still do at the age of 29!)... next year I'm FINALLY moving out as I'm going to be studying in a different city. I've got 3 options and well, I honestly don't care much for where I end up, as long as I end up somewhere else!

I think having a change of scenery is healthy, you'll meet new people, see new sights and experience something different! I'm trading Stockholm (The capitol of Sweden) for three much smaller cities, in fact, two of them are not even cities, they're towns. And that actually feels like a good thing (For me).

So you're young and you don't know what you want to study? I'd say TRY something you think you might fancy! I've been spending my last 10 years (Since graduating) being just like you described: Lazy, unmotivated and a piece of shit. I graduated as a computer technician but 11 weeks of practical work told me it was boring as FUCK. And I'd need another 3 years education on top of that to install printers? No way! So I just spent my life playing WoW and jerking it to porn. That's NOT the way to spend you're 20's man, trust me.

So now that I've realized my problem and thought about what I truly enjoy in life? I've come to the conclusion that I honestly want to make computer games. Its what I've thought about even as a young kid when I first got a taste of Command & Conquer. Only now have I really embraced the idea and decided that fuck yeah, this is worth studying, this is worth 3 years of my life studying!

So try something you think might be interesting! Be it a potential job or a course you can study. Don't hesitate! Unless perhaps you're in America and will get crippling debt from it... then maybe be a bit more careful in what you try studying :P

That's really good advice fnatk.

I know Daniel (user: Jeff) is actually moving out of his home country very soon - I'm sure he'll have some insight on moving and rebooting. If everything goes according to the plan, we will record the show tomorrow...so you won't have to wait too long for an answer.  8)

Hey man sorry I didn't get back to this thread, I spilled coffee on my computer and it fried my keyboard. It's been both a blessing and a curse  :P

I've decided I'm going to move around new years, I'm waiting for financial reasons but the podcast helped me decide I'll do it regardless of where I am with the reboot. It's quite funny because the same day I listened to the show I had 2 different people telling me to just buy a 1 way ticket to a different country and stay there for 6-12 months. Cheers!

@fnatk, Hey thanks for the advice man. Unfortunately it is pretty expensive to study here in New Zealand. I was fortunate enough to visit Sweden (Stockholm + Gavle) and Denmark (Copenhagen + Aarhus) last year and really enjoyed it. I think I would go to Sweden or Denmark if I were to move overseas. Good luck making games man! Grats finding something you enjoy

Good on you man! That's really awesome and I admire your proactive and adventurous spirit. Honestly, you will most likely come out of it completely changed for the better. I studied abroad in central Mexico and lived with a family for only three weeks and it totally altered my life for the better. Made the world I know bigger and changed the way that I viewed almost everything.

Honestly I am slightly terrified haha, I just hope I have the courage to follow through with my words when the time comes, especially considering adventure has been a strong desire since before I can remember.

Hey everyone! Season 2, Episode 1 of the YourBrainRebalanced Podcast is up and running! We'll call the temporary hiatus a new season. ;) We're gunna get the ball rolling on more episodes here soon with the full cast plus guests, but today it was only Daniel and I. We talked a little bit about what we've been up to, then moved to questions that have been laying around for a long time.

Hey people! New podcast is live!

In this episode of the YBR show, Noah Church (Spangler) join Charlie (fugu) and Jack (Apeman) to have a brief discussion about his recent adventures and some other pornography addiction and PIED related subject. The episode was just about an hour long, but the conversation was great - Noah knows how to keep the conversation going. Oh, and Jack is back, and has been living the dream the last 6 months ;)

As usually, post questions, comments, concerns and ideas if you got em'!

I hate porn..





Seriously though, good shows! Always something more to learn, these podcasts help refocus intentions behind the journey.

I have a discussion idea.. Usually us rebooters are concerned about performance and whether we will have PIED once we get in bed, but I rarely see anyone discussing how to realistically converse with women. As I'm sure porn convinced many of us that if you help a women fix her flat tire you can expect her to be taking your pants off 5 minutes later. Though many of us have atleast some experience with women it's not enough to over power the unrealistic torrent of porn fantasy from years of PMO. Discussing how to show you're interested without being overbearing and what type of feedback to realistically expect etc. would be a helpful topic. Not like pick up artist stuff but realistic conversing advice.

thanks yo

Hey OSS! What's happening? yeah I think that's a really good question. We can talk about it on the next show. I definitely know that, for me, I just don't think about it too much. I just try not to expecting anything out of any conversation or anybody, and that usually helps me reduce any pressure I have. If I truly feel like talking - cool! If not, no problem.

We will bring this up in the next episode!

Hey everybody! The YBR show is looking for "callers" for the next episode - basically people who have time available next week to called upon during a show. The caller will ask a question and we'll answer it and chat a little bit about it. We're shooting for at least a couple of them. Let me know if you are interested!

I see what OSS is saying.  Once I was giving a program to all high school guys, I was talking about consent to have sex.  We were talking about how girls are dressed and that some guys assume that dress=sex.  And then become crude with the girl.  I suggested conversation and complimenting a girl and then getting to know them  (at a minimum the girl's last name) before the "let's get naked" statement.  Even possibly delay that and go on a date or two.  They literally had no idea how to do  and of the conversational things.  We did some role plays.  But that stuck with me.

The new episode is live! The episode included myself, Noah "Spangler" Church, and Daniel Simmons. We talked about healthy rebooting activities to include in a reboot. Daniel is a meditation pro, and he just got back from a meditation sabbatical a few days ago to lend us some insight. Hope ya'll enjoy!

Also it should be noted: We are looking for "callers" for a future episode. You would essentially just join our Skype call for a moment and ask/discuss a question you have. We'd a have a few callers on the show. Maybe 3?

If you are interested, send Noah, Daniel or me a PM!

Charlie (Fugu) plans on uploading all the shows in the future. As of right now he is busy with work and school, and living an awesome life away from porn = )

We will let you know as soon as they are back up and working. Much Love.
