10 days. I feel terrible though i was super happy yesterday....mood swings.
I browsed the internet a lot, i kept checking my phone and playing games...all to git a dopamine hit, but everything seemed boring without a taste... Now i feel sick.
No urges, till now...
Are you not counting up tho? *badum tss* hihi
Keep it going and make it a one week streak! I believe in you
Woah, almost there, keep it up! You can do it
Yeah 10% done! Celebrating small victories is really nice to keep up the good vibes! I feel great overal, especially the last 48ish hours!
Hope you all had a great start of the week like I did!
Only 74 more days!
I'm doing this!
Hey please let me give you an advice.. you know addiction to dopamine (or any drug) asks you to get more and more every time. A little hit is enough at the beginning, then you need a bigger one. That's why I advice you to quit videogames and any dopamine (bad) sources because your brain, asking you a bigger hit, will end up asking (with urges) for P.
Day 0/7 checking in.
Day 2, each day a reason to celebrate and an opportunity to stay away and fight! Take care you all!
Wise statement man! However, isnt it convenient to replace at least in the beginning one worse habit with a 'safer' one? I agree with you though about the dopamin hit. I believe the big secret is healthier closer relationships with others where you have more meaningful connections and no need to develop other addictions.
Day 87 27 days without a drink
I'm really beginning to wonder if there must be an optimum level of sex or even fapping. I don't know what is worse being a walking erection who needs to shoot his load 3 to 5 times a day, or having next to no sexual appetite at all. I have been at both extremes. I suppose there must be a happy medium but unfortunately people like me tend to be all or nothing. Maybe some people such as my self are just not wired to be normal which is fine as long as we are functional but unfortunately porn addiction makes that very unlikely.
Maybe I have come to realise there is more to life than sex. Having a great work life, social life and love life I imagine would be better than having a porn Star's sex life, which is something I have pretty much wasted decades of my life fantasizing over. I suppose learning from one's mistakes is the only way to develop and grow.
1 week done! On my 8th
Day sixty nine
Thank you for your advice
I agree with the statements you said about addiction, like wanting more...and how bad it is. But there no addiction to dopamine, dopamine is a neurochemical that is produced by our brain to seek pleasurable experiences and repeat, i like imagine it like the source of motivation. There is nothing wrong about having a dopamine hit, it is healthy. The problem with porn is that it is a super stimulus, it gives our brain more pleasure than it exist in real world.
Urges are signs that your brain needs some dopamine, off course here you have the choice either watch porn and get sick or look for healthier ways to satisfy your needs, like talking to a friend or getting out... It requires brain control to choose less dopamine activities...This ia why it is difficult to rewire our brain to old paths after getting exposed to higher source of dopamine...
Anyway, i'm trying to find a healthy soothing.
As you said i have to be careful not to get addicted to something else instead.
Moments of dopt are useful to reflect on once life and think deeply about his decisions, in the same time they are traps. Life is way better without porn, it is just we can't see that till we abstain from it for a long time. Stay always positive my friend, there is always hope.
