Just curious if other guys (or gals) have other addictions that may go hand in hand with P and M? So ironically I have had a P addiction as well as a youtube addiction for the last 10 years of my life ( I'm 26). What took me way too long to figure out is I started watching a lot of youtube and found P at the exact time which , for me, was a deadly combo for anxiety and depression. Throughout high school I was miserable.. couldn't figure out why but it felt like that one episode of south park where all Stan saw was literal shit.. That's how my life felt.. Back then, I wish someone in my family would've seen the changes I felt and I would try to talk to them about it, but they didn't really get it, which wasn't their burden to bare anyways. I had to figure this out on my own and I'm happy i did in the present.. But watching youtube as a kid growing up, I guess gave me a false sense of friends? which sounds cringy but that's how my brain took that information. I had friends and was super happy as a kid, but when I started watching P and watching a lot of youtube i wasn't really happy and I found no joy in a lot of the small things.. So zooming forward to the future ,I am seeing big impacts on minimizes my time on youtube and stop watching P and M. I have realized that social interactions, real social interactions are so important to our mental health, i think i was just running away from that fear of rejection growing up.. I love to hear your stories of different addictions that you see a pattern that you need to be free of.. We all have the power within us to control our habits.. We have a really great community here to help eachother out!
