Simple question, does reading/writing erotic text and sexting contribute to PIED?
you know the answer, good luck!
In case you don't know the answer: YES. It does
I think I am a sex addict, what do you substitute that mindset with? What do you fill the void with?
I'm afraid it's not that simple. I found out that my PA is filling a void that's there for other reasons, rooted deep inside. These are the things that I need to uncover and confront in order to eliminate the void that has been filled with porn use for a long time. I hope it makes sense to you. Good luck on your journey, mate.
Self-respect, self-worth, self-trust
Respecting the way you got behind yourself
Listening to good music
Enjoying real conversations with people
There is a lot to fill that void
Good luck and remember... Learn from failure or you will fail again
Dude, yes! Sexting is terrible. I quit watching porn over 2 years ago, almost fixed all my PIED problems, and then I started sexting on dating apps (since in this day and age it is so easy to find willing partners) and it set me back to square 1 without me even realizing it.
I am now having almost the same PIED problems I had when I first decided to quit porn, and I hate myself for falling in the same trap and losing all this time and progress. Sexting is just another perverted way in which this addiction crawls back into your mind. Trust me, it's not worth it...
I'm literally the same.
Had 3 long streaks, one year, then a month and then 3 months with a few relapses in between those.
My last relapse was from sexting which in turn led to porn use.
I'm 7 days clean now but in a complete flatline...
I don't feel like ill heal this time and I'm very worried
If you don't sext, but get a semi erection or semi hard from a text, yet it's not a sexual one in content then is that a major relapse??
It's just a matter of time until you heal but consistency is key, I guess we all need to give it time. I noticed that every time I stop doing it for even short periods of time (1-2 weeks) my mojo is coming back rapidly but then I fuck it up by saying "I've been good for the past few days, I might as well sext". Personally I believe healing is possible no matter what the situation is since the brain is incredibly plastic, but we need to really give it time and let it do its thing without punishing ourselves with relapses all the time.
So I wouldn't be worried about it! Just give yourself time to heal, don't lose hope and stop going around sexting people and focus on real sex (I am so guilty of this one myself...). Best of luck to you mate!
I've healed this shit before, it's just so annoying knowing I'm at square one all over again!
