My first attempt at abstaining from PMO lasted 6 days. Throughout the years of my addiction, I wouldn't be able to move on beyond 3 days without PMO. Yesterday I ended a six-day streak. I'm certain I experienced partial benefits for the first 5 days. No urges or any lustful thoughts occurred. During this small period of abstaining from any kind of sexual interference, this was the first time for quite a while I could sense passion to life slowly returning back to me. I had minimal mood disturbances, more positive outlook towards people and the world (since I'm kind of dark, melancholic person), higher energy levels, improved sleep and being more relaxed. Based on both my experience of my last few days of abstaining and my state after the relapse, I'm now more determined to get rid of PMO for the rest of my days. I will double my efforts and I will carry on with the flow of the whole recovery process. Be blessed everyone.
