Hi everyone, I managed to achieve the 30 day PMO mark. Then relapsed 5 min after I woke up, because I'm a freaking idiot. I did some "dry" wanking and suddenly couldn't hold it in. But the ejaculation was different that morning than what it would have been 30 days ago. It felt like a sudden release of tension built up in the lower body, rather than a habitual chore just to get a dopamine release. Since abstaining from PMO I never realized the effect it originally had; on my sleep habits, fitness, memory, cognitive function, mood and personality. I don't have trouble sleeping anymore and I manage to get regular REM sleep for the first time since puberty, I wake up refreshed and alert. If you've ever seen Bradley Cooper in Limitless, that will give you an idea of how much my overall intelligence has improved. I was always intelligent as a child but after I hit puberty, my intelligence became dulled (coincidence?) and my grades fell. I was then referred to as the weird kid instead of the smart-weird kid. I feel like I'm regressing back to my original personality too. I would recommend 30 days hard mode to anyone. You will be glad you did it! Don't get me wrong, it will be one of the hardest things you ever do. You will be tested on your strength and willpower like never before. But if you are not content with your lot in life, what do you have to lose other than a half-lifetime of perverted, vile and disgusting habits!?
