Success Stories / Re: I did it, 14 months, finally a success story.

Hey man, happy to know you got your life back under control. I'm rebooting as well, 22years old, bout 10 days in hardmode. But I don't have a problem with triggers as much as many other do. I used to PMO like crazy (obviously), but I've spent the last 3 years in the military, discharged now. During my service I had to cut down on the masturbating and the P, which unintentionally, in it's own way was a kind of reboot. I would not PMO all week, then when I got some R&R, I would "make up" for it, with 3-4 sessions.

Not much long ago, had my first serious bout with PIED with a woman.. felt terrible. Giving up porn, getting an exercise program, reading, working more, changed eating/sleeping/drinking habits, started dating this amazing girl... all that makes me feel 10x better than ever. I'm making progress everyday. Never want to watch porn ever again, nor MO by myself.

I know this is just the beginning, and that it could get worse before it gets better, I've even had a severe anxiety/panic attack (FFS I've been to war, bombs going off everywhere, shit going ballistic, and this is what got me?) at work a few days ago because I overthunk my predicament.

Fellow rebooters, going into hardmode with plain abstinence from PMO is not the way to go. Trying to rewire your brain is. There is no easy way, it has to suck, you will fail many times before you succeed. But it's worth it.
I, as well as some other posters here, hope to look back at all this many years from as a bad experience of my adolescent life.
