Hey brother,

I also had some mild pressure in my head, along with the irritability and lack of concentration and mental fog.  It stated for me around the 21 day point as well.  It has eased the last few days, so I am hopeful.  Despite the debate among some mental health professionals, I am convinced pornography and masturbation can easily become an addiction. The withdrawal symptoms are all the evidence I need.  Stay strong brother and apply some of the many tips here on the RN forum.  Also, if you are a believer in God, pray to Him.

Best Wishes

Well its been 30 Days since I PM'd.  I have O'd twice with my wife, but I'm currently in a flatline and have no desire or morning erections.  I know this is only temporary.  So how would I describe the first 30 days; sometimes difficult, but definitely doable.  My brain still urges me to view porn, and when I don't, it punishes me with anxiety, agitation, lack of concentration and an overall weird feeling.  It will not win!!!  I am training my frontal cortex to be victorious over my reward center.  Stay strong brothers...

Thanks Doc74...I appreciate your encouragement...I definitely don't want this reboot to be a white knuckle experience...I don't want to focus solely on "not using porn", but instead pursue things in life that are fulfilling and take my mind off porn completely.

Hi All,

My reboot seems to be going well.  I seem to be a bit more agitated and stressed since I don't have PMO as an outlet.  I find myself having more vivid dreams with some of a sexual nature.  I have been tempted a time or two to look at porn, but the accountability software has done it's job and prevented that.  I will try to post every few days. Good luck on our journey my brothers!

Hi All,

It has been a few weeks since I looked at porn or masturbated.  I have been experiencing PIED and PIDE for the last year or two.  I recently got married and knew I had to do something about it.  I confessed to my wife, put accountability software (Ever Accountable) on my devices and I'm looking for support by connecting with other men in the struggle.

For the last year, I have only been able to orgasm/ejaculate by hand stimulation (mine or my spouse).  I have not been able to do so by actual intercourse.  This is certainly bothersome to me and my spouse.  I just pray that my reboot is successful.  I have decided NOT to feed the porn beast and try to create new pathways of intimacy.
