DP/DR/BRAIN FOG

Discussion in 'Rebooting - Porn Addiction Recovery' started by Deleted Account, Jan 21, 2018.

  1. Hello guys. I hope everyone is well because I'm NOT. Srsly...

    Anyhow, i was wondering if anyone has cured DP/DR/Brain fog by quitting PMO. To be frank I noticed some changes but of course I relapsed because I can't keep my hands outta my pants. After 16 days! I relapsed yet AGAIN before this streak I made it to 27 days and I felt amazing but after the relapse I felt the brain fog come AGAIN. And it definitely did because I could barely remember the numbers at the end of my username.

    Guys I need re-assurance because right now I don't see lift at the end of the tunnel. Every time I say "that's it I'm not going back to it" but I end up going back!!! I'm sick of myself thinking I can do this on my own when I can't.. I need an AP. That's another thing

  2. Guys.. my case isn't as extreme as other people's here.. I DONT lack confidence nor do I have social anxiety. God knows how I got this problem. I had a perfectly fine childhood everything got bad as soon as I started masturbating everyday once or twice sometimes even thrice. One more thing isn't I'm NOT addicted to porn. I've been doing PMO for 4 years and it's about damn time I stopped

    I didn't have DP and DR so much but certainly brain fog. I felt better pretty quickly after quitting on this streak and it continues to get better. I do a number of things other than abstaining from PMO though, my diet isn't perfect by far but I make it a point to include at least some frozen vegetables and I take supplements, some specifically for the brain. I read interesting stuff to stimulate my mind.

    One thing is I'm in my 40s. Anyone can do the things I do, and I'd imagine it would work better and faster if you're younger - although there are a good number of things incorporated now.
     
  4. Brain fog is a person I can only sympathise with you. I still have it and it does get better the longer you go without pmo. I’d seriously suggest stopping it for ever.

    For me personally my brain fog decreases drastically after about a week without pmo. I believe it is one of the worst drawbacks of pmo since i can't concentrate on my work, school and pretty much on anything. The first couple of days after i relapse it can even be hard to make conversation.. it can get THAT bad. However it always goes away if i keep up a good streak which always gives me hope. You can do it brother!
     
  6. I WANT to stop PMO for ever and I start my streak with that MINDSEt. But once I have 2 weeks under my belt my brain just craves it and I want to masturbate again..
     
  7. Thanks man. I just hope I can re-gain my momentum and remain steadfast for a long period of time of no pmo

    DP DR is gone because DP/DR is just symptom of anxiety that you created by masturbating or being in bad relationship (family,gf or whoever). I still do have Brainfog that has been improved since I stopped fapping but i dont know how to cure it, I believe that nofap will cure it if not im going to do tests (Not blood tests because they wont find anything.) I have one advice for you if you are experiencing DPDR=anxiety dont drink redbull (i nearly got a panic attack lol) Coffe doesnt do anything for me but it is individual i guess. That questioning about reality is gone (but sometimes if i think about it i feel it but it wont bother me anymore because i just let it go.. You cant die from nothing remember that!!) I have also tinnitus with that Visual snow and i hope that one day i can get rid of this brainfog because brainfog will cause tinnitus and Visual snow for some people. And ofcourse i thought about that im Schyzo (well i still do but i know that im not lol :D)

    If you dont know then dont google it, because you may suggest it.
     
  13. Thanks for taking your time to reply. Moreover, after some research I have came to the conclusion that DP/DR and Brain fog can be cured by abstaining from PMO.

    My childhood has been perfectly fine and I am grateful to god that I haven't experienced any type of trauma which could have triggered these symptoms other than MASTURBATION. I am 100% certain that masturnatiom has triggered this.

    The reason being is because masturbating increases fear and anxiety because it releases cortisol which is a stress hormone and it continues to build up until your brain has had ENOUGH. When your brain has had enough it's like it "shuts off" and that's where you experience DP/DR/Brain fog.

    There's only one way for me to recover now and it's to give this PMO addiction up.

  15. Withdrawals can last until 2 years or at least that's what I've read. Stay strong buddy.

    Tinnitus, Brainfog, Visual snow, DP/DR are caused by Copper toxicity today i found out that i have copper toxicity and other sufferers that got rid of DP/DR had copper toxicity along with candida (but its not necessary candida) DP/DR if its anxiety based will dissapear by easing anxiety so Nofap will ease your anxiety so it may dissapear by that. But if it wont dissapear along with brainfog it may be copper toxicity.
     
  17. Thanks for the informative posts man. I appreciate it. :)
     
  18. Are u starting to feel better brother.
