    I keep making excuses for myself, I am completely addicted and struggling with the idea of quitting PMO.

    It actually hurts down there from the abuse, and I feel really low.

    I think the norepinephrine withdrawal is getting to me, I just feel horrible like I'm in shock and yet I can't seem to quit. I just drift back to it every few days like clockwork. I can't even manage 7 days and when I do I will just relapse.

    I feel like I'm losing the support of my family and I just can't bear to tell them, I'm so ashamed of it.

    What should I do?

    Have you tried SA or SAA, or finding a CSAT?

    I’m 4 weeks sober. I’ve been down this road so many times.
    So so many.

    Here are the things that can help:
    12 Step like slaa or saa
    Therapy
    consistent physical exercise
    get new hobbies. when i first gave up porn, I found all these new hobbies.
    do random acts of kindness for others when you’re triggered. Do these acts instead of using porn.
    Stay out of the house
    plan your day so you won’t have many opportunities to relapse/slip
    use blockers: k 9, net nanny, mobichip for phone
    explore meditation, yoga, and hypnosis
    write about your experiences, write about the addiction
    pray
    find spirituality in your life

    do all that, you’ll be a different person

    Dont know what he means by that. From what I know norepinephrine Withdrawal can come from the stop of use of SNRIs lol

    From what I know, porn is not an antidepressant exactly so, idk
     
  7. I think he’s talking about masturbating and orgasming aspect of pmo. A lot of chemicals and hormones are released during orgasm

    Hey TurtleBrah, I've been there man, for I had once been addicted for years, doing things out in the open, hurting everyone in my life, and pushed people away constantly. The cycle is tough, like being in a washing machine and going round and round, but yes, there is light at the end of the tunnel!

    I remember one time I did so much bad stuff I too had caused a lot of pain down there. Isn't it sad how we treat ourselves when we don't feel so cared about, especially by our own selves? We have to learn to love ourselves, bro, and see the potential in us and see that we are important, that we do matter, that someone, even if we don't know them loves us! As weird as it may sound, I love you bro, and say none of this in hate. It's all love, man.

    Try to keep getting support. You have it here man. Do know though that though people can fail you you can still overcome. I've heard stories of people in prison, or being homeless have had people walk out on them, and that's tough, and real hard, but through perseverance they overcame, and in making the right choices, working towards the light at the end of the tunnel did things seem to substantially work out for them.

    If you need a friend, I'm here. Nice to meet you. And don't forget!:
