Let's make a list of withdrawal symptoms

Discussion in 'Porn Addiction' started by gogibasket, Aug 21, 2016.

  1. I just pointed out what I see as lapse in logic nothing more.

    My actual advice is to not give much though to your symptoms, you can write them down if you want, in detail and move on.

    I have lower left quarter abdominal pain, radiating down my presumed spermatic cord or Vas Diferens.
    And a general bloated feeling along my lower abdominal wall, reaching slightly into the pelvic region.
    The left nut in question itself does not hurt, and no problem with the right.
    The left cord/groin area feels sore if I go running, with each foot impact into the ground.

    Any advice on what this could be?

    It also started after 2 doses of a supplement called MSM.
    Which I decided to take for acute knee pain I have was experiencing at the time in my left knee, it was touted as a joint repair supplement.
    Instead I got this lower abdominal pain and left nut cord pain.

    Some people say knee pain is a symptom of PMO withdrawal.

    I think I either have 'Blue Balls' or Varicocele, I would rather the Blue Balls!

    And increase brain fog, anxiety and self-hate. I'd rather exercise and work out for the rest of my life, reducing the risk of literally every cancer in my body.

    I've made a thread for getting rid of these fetishes. And it should help with the anxiety as well.

    Just to let the community know, my pain has gone away
    No wet dreams or release of sperm in anyway.
    I did find it funny that the pain was localised to the left side of my body.
    But I did read somewhere that the anatomy of the left nut is different from the right.
    (Checks nuts constantly, I don't know U guys anymore.)
    Haha I'm having a small existential crisis abt my nuts. Who are they! Jks jks.


    Masturbate 21 times a month.....for science!! , Hahaha.

    Not a fan of authority bias.

    I also think if someone is trying to prove anything, they will.
    And this happens with a lot of, maybe all; science articles and journals, sources.

    Do you notice any sperm in your pee, is your pee sticky to any degree?

    If it is, it's potentially your body getting rid of excess sperm.

    Keep hydrated haha.

    For relapse.

    I find making another big lifestyle change at the same time as quitting PMO, like a change in diet or quitting something else at the same time; keeps my mind from even thinking about porn since I'm preoccupied with quitting, say, another addiction, or quitting a routine you've been stuck in for ages like watching your phone too late at night, snacking late or anything else that is habitual to you, and focusing on keeping to a new diet is a big one.

    I find this helpful personally.

    To the point I haven't really noticed any withdrawal symptoms, besides the physical symptoms I mentioned in my first post.

    Maybe I am jumping the gun though, it's been about 2 months maybe 3, not sure.
    I don't count the days.

    It's ok, I know you can feel helpless when your down and life is kicking your ass or nuts in haha.
    But hope exists!
    Aswel as change!
    The Key is to distract yourself with new and healthy goals.

    Diet change.
    Maybe replace soda, with something like green tea, it can give you what people call "tea energy" and I love it!
    In some sodas there are two ingredients that can cause palpitations, caffeine and aspartame; the artificial sweetener.
    And all that sugar cannot be good for ones mental and physical health.
    And after a big meal, blood flow is redirected to the stomach for digestion, which could cause heart palpitations.
    Eat magnesium rich foods, like bananas pumpkin seeds, spinach and avocados to name a few.

    I eat a predominately plant-based diet, with meat here and there, but this is personal and not essential, you can eat meat all you want, just cut the junk out, learn to cook!
    My rule usually is, if it came in a packet I don't eat it.

    You don't want to get addicted to marijuana because it will give your heart a workout, it makes your heart work faster, leading to more palpitations, aswel as increasing the likelihood of more anxiety; in the long run.

    I would try and reframe your thought of "I want to be addicted to something else"
    To, I won't have anything be a master over me.

    Work at what you can change, baby steps.

    Do you exercise, cardio?
    Although it will make you feel like your heart is being pushed to hard at first, it is great for heart health and self confidence as your physique changes.

    I'm also a fan of the supplement
    N-acetyl Cysteine, it's good for anxiety.

    Your experience reminds me of me, except I was fat, was teased throughout my school years; I'm 29 now, and I had tremendous amounts of social and general anxiety, which was a major pain, pun intended XD
    The anxiety was exacerbated by cannabis use.
    I started watching porn at 13 also.
    So I had a lot of heart palpitations and excessive heart pain for my age.

    I also did a lot of self reflection, looking at my self limiting beliefs and replacing them with positive affirmations.
    I think it was called 'Shadow work'.
    Tremendously helpful in breaking out of negative mind states we get our selves into.

    Meditation can help, I swear it sounds simple but it is actually quite hard, just to focus on the breath, if you can; it can reduce anxiety quite a lot, and it doesn't feel half bad being a Zen master haha.

    I hope you can use some of these suggestions

    Depends how far someone is on their NoFap journey.

    After a 30 day streak (intended to be the end all)...I just relapsed six days in a row. I’ve never PMOd that much, ever.
    Depression
    Social anxiety
    Can’t look female coworkers in the face well
    Lack of confidence
    Unease
    Insecurity
    When I act out of the ordinary at my job and hear people talking, I figure it’s “he’s weird today”.
    Small cramp in my right hand.

    This has also to do with lack of sleep, when I spend hours and devilish HOURS loading porn on a 3g connection. There have been multiple nights where I’ve stayed up the entire night. If lack of control like that doesn’t lead to depression, not much else will.

    This is literally a struggle for life that we give up on. Earlier this week, I had super strong urges. I was sick of it. What comes after relapsing isn't worth relapsing for. We dig ourselves out of a hole, and choose to fall back in and hurt ourselves. Get rid of the internet already.

    Update to that post.
    I had one or two relapses after that, a 50 day streak (ended because lust was interfering with my day and I gave in), and two relapses after that. Right now I think I’m 16 days or so. Having another IRL example besides me has helped a little.

    On symptoms:
    If someone has depression anyway, it is cyclical. However, you can avoid lots of bad things from depression and anxiety if you don’t relapse and you remind yourself how far you’ve gotten. Once you have learned what depression and anxiety can do to you (after you’ve let it run rampant), you can control it better. I’ve had D&A genetically, for a solid seven years at least.

    This anxiety and insecurity has an INSANE amount to do with less sleep. When I get less sleep than 7.5hrs a night, I plummet downwards mentally. One day of six hours of sleep and I already have to tell myself “they aren’t talking about you”.

    What would happen is I would spend hours trying to download porn. Then I would get less sleep. Now that I have unlimited data, that’s kind of solved. If it’s going to happen, it’s going to happen. Now it’s only a battle of self control, RATHER THAN a battle of self control while fighting uphill. If I didn’t have enough sleep, I was more likely to relapse anyway, while staying up late. If I get more sleep now, I’m better prepared to fight. This is separating the battle from its spiritual element, because “we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
    ‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭6:12‬ ‭KJV‬‬
    https://www.bible.com/1/eph.6.12.kjv

    It is a choice to fall back into sin. We are prone to evil because we are morally corrupt due to our fall in paradise, yet we still make choices every day.
    “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.”
    ‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭10:13‬ ‭KJV‬‬
    https://www.bible.com/1/1co.10.13.kjv

    The sunrise comes after this battle with darkness. Rise up and fight. We fight with you.

    First week was easy.
    Week 2 can’t stop thinking about sex balls are sore, I feel tightness in my prostate area I get, good news is my erextions are stronger bad news they come at bad times. Going into week threee I’m afraid I’m going to run down the next a-hole that cuts me off while driving and beat them up. I’m angry, sore, horny and lonely I’m not sure it’s a good combo
