    I see myself as a quite confident guy; I don't worry a lot nor do I spend a lot of time doubting or being pessimistic about myself, quite the opposite can be said actually... but despite all that I find myself being anxious for no particular reason that I can rationalise with, happening at random times during the day/night.

    Usually this would happen the most on days I would relapse, where after a few days of abstinence the feelings of anxiety would subside slowly. So my question is could this be a placebo or is there an actual direct connection with PMOing and feelings of anxiety as a whole? And I'm not talking about performance anxiety here or PIED either, I'm talking about this unusual feeling of having your body being uncomfortable/agitated but can't really explain why. Is it just me or does anyone else get what I'm talking about?

    After every relapse I feel like less motivated and anxious.At the end of the day I was totally angry about what was I doing with my life.PMO induces anxiety depression and other effects.

  3. Possibly a withdrawl symptom. I have anxiety, particularly in the mornings, which is slowly improving.

    Are you thinking big?
    Is there anything that is going to happen in the near future that is stressing you out?
    Are you touching on a past traumatic experience?

    Not really I mean I used to dwell about the past a lot but I hardly ever do that now

    I want to throw something at you that you may or may not have considered before.

    Have you had a blood panel taken, specifically to measure your hormones?

    Many guys today have hypogonadism, due to a variety of possible causes, and can receive hormone optimization treatment that is covered by insurance.

    I only mention this because underlying anxiety issues are a common symptom and its worth looking into your own health, even if it turns out everything is fine.

    I actually have gotten myself tested and my results came all fine. My thoughts is that it may have to do with signs of withdrawals as I usually experience these feelings of inner restleness/agitation on days that I relapse. Generally after 2 days of abstinence those feelings subsides quite a bit.
