    hey I'm ashamed to come to write that I have pmo'd not once but 5times in a row I was basically at 9months without porn and I was able to have my pied cured for the most part . Confidence was to the ceiling and life felt not to bad if I would say so myself, but now I feel like I am back to square one I'm really freaking out I'm going be 21 may 27th and I am still back in the shit hole again that I promised myself I would get out of . Maybe I rushed back into having sex and my brain wasn't ready ?this is addiction is real

    Hey man we all need help, but not all of us have been able to hit 9 months so that's still respectable!

    I believe the key to lasting change is not abstaining from PMO alone but doing all the other things in life.

    If you did 9 months before, what's to say you can't do it again? Before you relapsed you probably went years where there were days where you PMO'd multiple times a day right? I think we need to have perspective and recognize our standards are just higher now and before we didn't think anything of it. So not all is lost.

    I did 4 months and have just starting back, I think if I did all the stuff I needed to do I would have been able to keep it going don't let that get you down and right now we gotta watch the withdrawal

  6. 9 months is great! You can get there again. More dangerous than the reset is losing hope. Pick yourself up and go again. You're stronger now, you know its possible, you know how you got to 9 months. You will do it again.

    Hi mate! I understand the feeling but 9 months is an amazing achievement. The fact that you have "relapsed" does not mean that you are back to square one. I'm sure you have learnt many things about yourself, what it works and what does not. Write down all the positive things that you have learnt in those 9 months and the things that need to improve/triggers that might lead you to the "relapse". I'm sure you'll be stronger this time. We are in this together

    You're beating yourself up too much for achieving something almost everyone else wouldn't. Chill the fuck down!
