Let me tell you something, my friend. This is man to man talk. If you want someone to give you the straight dope, I will. The fact is that PMO use is how we, as addicts, escape from the pain. Yes, we do escape from it, but the more we escape, the worse it gets. What is the solution, when life has gone to hades in a hand basket? We have to have courage and strength. When we feel those emotions or have those life problems, we face those things head on. And the more you feel that pain and face those problems, you will get stronger. The fact is, the way that iron sharpens iron, is how a man becomes stronger. That pain is there to MAKE you stronger. So you feel it, and it won't kill you. Then it comes back, but it's a little weaker, just a little. Feel it again, no PMOs, take all the pain. Cry if you have to, do push ups, cook a steak, but you cannot hide. Then the pain goes away, but comes back, who is now a shadow of what it once was, and you brace yourself, for.... that? It was hardly at half strength. But see, the pain didn't changed. YOU CHANGED. YOU GOT STRONGER. Get it?
