    Hi fellow Fapstronauts,

    It would be interesting to see how bad has your PMO habit become when you decided you need to stop. Please take a poll (chose 2 answers: 1 in each category).

    I'm in the same boat. Depression and anxiety are really hard to get rid of.

    Doesn't quite have my stats- I'd say an average of once per month (sometimes more) for less than an hour- seeing how I got premature ejaculation, I wouldn't last long.

    Definitely went for much longer when I first started.

    Interesting result so far. It looks like most forum members doesn't have long sessions binge PMO problem. I hope this poll stays active long enough to get as big numerus as we can.
     
  7. Short sessions and binging is what seriously sent me down a bad path. The orgasm combined with my favourite scene was like an artificial opioid then instant numbness, terrible really.

    In my teens it was everyday hour plus but as I got older and decided to quit it was only a couple times a week for less than an hour. But when that flatline came it was deadly.

    I've never really had binge issue like doing it back to back in 1 day. However I used to pmo almost everyday for 3 years especially coming from college. Used to went deep like 1h searching for the perfect scene. That's when vanilla couldn't do it for me. Then i switch to severe genres(don't wanna say them to avoid triggers). That's when I discovered Nofap by searching why "I was always sluggish and lack of motivation". At that time I have done some streaks of 3 weeks or 1 month max. Then I turned to tranny and last 4 years of watching it. Take in mind that I still searching for 1hour + and sometimes hold my shit to orgasm harder. 4 years in between I still falling on nofap completing 10 to 60 days. I tried to watch femdom but still weak compare to trannys. I even reached hypno but i couldn't handle it because it wasn't attractive.I tried to switch to animals, I started to like it then my brain couldn't handle being abused anymore. That's when i finally listen to my brain and body that things have to change. Now 1 year hardmode and still in the reboot stage. I also realize my reboot will take a good amount of time.

    Great poll!
    I never realized how bad it was until just recently after my first proper reboot in years.
    Binges-2 week abstinence-binge again. It really escalated my length in sessions and the extremity of the content itself. Leading to flashes when I'd close my eyes, hardcore dreams, sick feeling in my stomach, guilt, shame, wandering eyes, discontent, mood swings.

    I feel it maybe upwards of a year before my brain has fully rebooted, at least.

    Once every 2 weeks PMO but would start with fantasy which led to an edging spree then P + edging followed by MO.
    It was constant stimulation and finding new and disgusting ways to finish off.

    By the end of the spree i would feel like i ate way too much salt. I dont know why but i could actually taste it.
    Very Odd

    Porn are nothing but lies, illusions and wishful thinking that you wish you were at the place of the dude.

    My cycle of hell was hours long porn torrents searching, downloading and PMOing. Sessions ended with total body exhaustion when I couldn't reach O anymore no matter how hard I MBed. Pretty bad.

    Heh, sounds like me. I'm actually surprised that I'm at the higher end of the poll. If I'd taken it when I was younger, it would have been a lot worse.

    One thing about the poll, though -- it asks about an average. I'd binge, maybe spending an hour looking at porn on most days but sometimes spending multiple days on it or, like you, repeating until I just couldn't orgasm anymore, a pretty unpleasant experience that left me sore and frustrated.

    Yeah, poll has limitations. You're only able to ask 1 question. I still tried to ask 2. All I wanted is to get general picture of average PMO behaviour of participants so everyone can estimate where he stands on the scale. It looks like I was in the worst 4-6 % :( Let's hope even more people take the poll so we get even more representative results.

    Also, I would tend to drift towards the same content, hoping for new uploads and occasionally finding something new.
    More reason I got premature ejaculation

    Yes, searching was part of PMO ritual for me too.

    I used to use porn on average once a day. But I would use it before bed. So I would get in bed 2-3 hours before I knew I was gonna sleep just to watch porn. It wasn’t so much porn sites that I used. Rather sites like tumblr and Reddit, which had unlimited access to short clips. Scrolling down a never ending list of new videos. It would never stop and was hard to get off of it so that I could get ready for bed. I just wanted to keep on scrolling.

    Love the data driven method here bro. All your posts just about appeal to my scientific sense. Interesting to see where I fit in. 3-5 times a day, average of 1.5 hrs per session, total of 6 hours almost like clockwork. I slept very little at the valley of this.

    I’d say by the sample size it looks like I’m in the deepest end mostly by myself.
