    Hi all, I just wanted to share a bit about what I have learned, chat about my struggles and see what other people this so that maybe we can all grow together.

    I struggle with loneliness / self esteem mainly and if I fail or feel out of control of a situation I feel like I am being crushed by the weight of failure making it hard to move forward - this is why a single lapse can be so dangerous for me it can become a season of failure! If I feel unloved its can be unbearable, I just sink into trying to feel worth something or meaningful in all the wrong ways (internet browsing etc) and go on a downward spiral!

    But Ive taken inspiration from this TED discussion on emotional first aid:

    https://ideas.ted.com/7-ways-to-practice-emotional-first-aid/

    Im interested in what people think about this, bur I also say that my aim is to practice the 7 techniques and work on getting out of negative patterns that are so distructive to my emotional health! PMO is never a cause for me but a symptom of something going wrong - my aim is to catch the cause before it happens and fix my emotional health so I dont get anywhere near it (and live a more joyful life :) )!

    So what are your thoughts? Any additional tips / stories / advice?
     
  2. I couldn't agree with you more. There are so many emotional factors that pay into the abuse of porn and sex. That is definitely the case for me. I'm also willing to admit that I don't really know how to deal with it.

    Journaling & reading helps.
