    Hi everyone I’m at 85 days no PMO/artificial stimulation, but have had sex during this time. As I sit here and ponder how I’m feeling today, I just wanted to share and encourage feelings and discussion.

    While I feel proud to finally be working on improving myself from this nasty addiction, I do feel a bit lonely or lost today. I mentioned this in my introductory posts, but the brain fog/headache/brain tingles suck!

    The anxiety is real and I’ve had just this metal ball feeling in my stomach. It’s been hard to focus on work or anything really. I have that constant feeling and know something is slightly off in my body and mind and I further fuel my anxiety with wondering when all this goes away.

    The forums here have been my only outlet in chatting with others who may be going through the same thing, so I appreciate those who have replied and been so helpful.

    Urges are VERY strong today filled with flashbacks, dirty thoughts, etc. I just feel like it’s really trying to draw you back in and kick you while you’re down. I’m trying to tell myself that it took years to get here and it’s going to take some time for a recovery, but sometimes it feels like I’m in a hole I can’t get out of.

    I know symptoms and feeling better are different for everyone, but I hope and pray for me and for everyone on this journey that we make it out better.

    If anyone has similar experiences or has seen the light at the end of the tunnel - I could use your inspiration and strength right about now. Thanks.

    I have been through a similar journey. I am through my usual withdrawal symptoms of porn addiction at the moment. Such as anger ( lashing out ) 2) sadness and 3) happiness.

    How long did it take before you noticed the symptoms subside?

    one month, but now I feel kinda sad imo because of my withdrawal symptoms. I read that my symptoms will last for 90 days. And I get help from my pastor and mom throughout this journey. So I have to remember and stay hopeful until my symptoms pass. lol.
