    Hey all,

    Just want to say last night I woke up 1am shaking with anxiety like my body was in shock and had to get up and shower and then meditate. Couldn't fall asleep again. Threw up my breakfast as well. It's been 18 days without porn. Just thought I would share this so that people going through withdrawals know they aren't alone.

    Just quick question as a beginner:
    Do you know how I can block all porn sites using safari? How did you control yourself to not watch porn at all?

    Honestly, I've fallen in love with a girl and am just so determined to fix my pied that I have just been mentally tough. Reinforced in myself that porn is not an option! Haven't used any porn blockers but just changed my lifestyle. Exercising loads, cleaning my car, gardening, socialising etc.

    You need to read a lot of books to understand the different theories of addiction, motivation,etc
    If you try to use plain old will power, it won't work. Here are a few books for suggested reading:

    Awaken the Giant...... By Anthony Robbins
    The Willpower Instinct.....By Kelly ( can't remember her last name)

    Even once you understand all the different theories and studies about motivation, addiction, sel-control..... this is very difficult to overcome. But if you try to do it without knowledge it is almost impossible.

    Also spend a lot of time in the success forum so you can learn how others did it

    Broooo.... I just had the shakes today. Like for like 15 minuets. It felt like I was fucking cold for no reason but I was shaking like a crack addict. What does this mean?

    What's going on in the brain?

    Hey man, I have no idea. I literally think your body goes into shock from not getting its dopamine hit but I literally have no idea. Honestly didn't even think I was an addict until now that I've stopped and I'm getting these withdrawals hahaha so fucked up. Amazing that porn can do this to you!
     
  11. I don't know about others and whether it's really because of nofap but I've been getting these flu-like symptoms as well, migraines even. Colds tend to last longer too. I bet it's because of the shock the body has to go through.

    It's possible man. Your immune system might be stressed because of the changes or something. I don't know exactly but from my experiences now I can tell my body is trying to cope without pmo. Going cold turkey clearly shocked it.
