I'm past 90 days.
« on: August 22, 2018, 05:41:28 PM »
Hey guys, I could use some support if possible. I quit back in May of this year. I'm married with children and quit entirely because of them. I also saw a Gary Wilson's now famous video about the effect of P. About 2 or 3 days or quitting withdrawal symptoms hit me hard. Depression, anxiety, trouble focusing, fatigue. Just the worst feeling ever. I saw alot of forums saying after 90 days it would all end. I was sceptical about that. Right now I'm going on 4 months since this started. My symptoms have improved alot but I still feel anxiety and fear from time to time. I have good days and bad days. I watched P for about 5 years. Almost daily. I'm 24 now. My question is if these feelings and bad days end? If anyone out there could relate. I have my mind set on 6-8 months of withdrawal. But who knows? Just could use some support in these days. Thanks

It took me way longer than 90 days.  90 days is a good start but not long enough for some guys.  If you keep going you should start feeling better.  When I first started rebooting I wish I would have had the mindset "if I stay away from PMO I'll eventually start feeling better" than "if I stay away from PMO for X number of days, I'll start feeling better".
Been rebooting since May 2015.  A handful of relapses in that time.  Have SLOWLY improved since then.  Finally starting to see some lasting success since summer of 2018.

It took me like 7 months into a relationship but no sex except pre-sex.. Thing is i was relapsing some times to the ppint that 4 months Maybe would do. Anyway those bad days and anxiety ends or reduce dramatically. Porn urges can still hit you While you can have successful sex and enjoyment so never underestimate that. If you do you Will find yourself into pmoing again. That my story atleast.. There is Light in the end so dont worry Just give yourself time and enjoy life overall
