Thanks so much. Yeah I'll make sure to abstain from now. Hopefully I'll heal soon.
Thanks so much for this, I'll try some of the tips out.
It was both, not smoking also helps, more nutrients reach the skin. With ejaculations you lose a lot of those nutrients. There are hundreds or thousands of reports that mention the same pattern, better skin and bright eyes because of Nofap. Same experience for me.
How long you were pmo addict?? And how much you did it??
Before or during puberty i was already watching porn. I only discover Gary Wilson and the consequences of porn consumption when 36 years old. I would say 25 years of porn use, give or take.
That's probably why it's taking you so long to get healed.
25 years of P is no joke....
yeah man. An edging pmo relapse always set me back to day 1 in terms of recovery.
Ive also had more or less the same symptoms since i started, due to relapse.
i would say it probably depends on if you were edging or not and for how long. If there was no edging involved then probably not to long.
I agree. What is strange is some people are also having long reboots even with less years of porn consumption. For example, @Experiment1996 .
Gabe Deem also started watching porn during puberty, and he got better in 9 months. Why the difference of 9 months to years ? In my case, 4 and half years, now . And counting...
I don't understand, how different can our brains be ?
I have no recovery timelines to compare, now. It is scary.
Depends the intensity, kindling, escalation and the duration of the addiction. I was a heavy user for 3 years. Started taking nofap serious back in 2014 and still nowhere to heal. Why??
Because I was relapsing between shorts and long streaks. Basically I'm kindling and it's not good for the recovery.
keep in mind gabe’s recovery was relapse free. If you relapse, your recovery is basically back to square 1.
my own P use was 3 years, yet ive had paws for 8 years now due to relapse. Believe me, you can be stuck in this shit forever with relapse.
I just M-ed and then Oed. I didn't watch P. But I did relapse a few times. I didn't watch any P. Is that what you mean by edging? Or you mean Ming for longer then Oing later?
edging is the act of M to the point of near orgasm, yet not crossing the line. You can in theory do this for many hours and never O.
it is the reason most of us here suffer with such debilitating paws symptoms for so long. It is completely devastating to recovery.
I wanna to keep you guys updated, as months gone by I keep improving. I am now working two jobs. I went back to my night job that quit because of my paws symptoms last year. I just couldn’t deal with it. People see me now see my old self, my happy and positive self. As far as symptoms the ones that went away haven’t come back. Anhedonia, depression and all that bullshit. I will say that my anxiety is now extremely low and not noticeable like before. My libido definitely is coming back slowly, I have more erections through the day with just sexual thoughts that keep floating by. As far as sex, I don’t have that after effect of orgasms nor does my dick shrink. I wanna just add don’t compare yourself to others here, if dudes are here for ages likely they are relapsing or got something else. If you are a hundred percent sure you got this from porn then give it up. I made the mistake wasting my time reading people’s posts and freaked me out that I would never heal. I mean I am another example that you can heal from this and other withdrawals. Time is the true healer and thats just reality. I didn’t want to post anymore on here but I was suicidal because of suicidal ideation and the other symptoms at one point so I understand. I would hate to see someone thinking of taking their life because of the hopelessness and reading to many negative posts. I just wanna assure that if I can heal and than so can you. Alot of you guys we’re supportive when I was really bad. Last Thanksgiving I was in pain crying anxious and depressed feeling very hopeless making doctors appointments because I was trying to get a quick fix, I tried ketamine, supplements, and none of that shit worked. Today I look at myself and you can’t compare me to last year. Good luck everyone.
Can't express how happy i am for you brother, stay blessed, you're a true hero, that didn't forget to give back to the community, thanks a lot for the hope and inspiration. Hope you have an amazing life ahead and you're able to cherish life twice as much now, to compensate for the time that got wasted being depressed over this shit.
You are doing well, good to know ! I hope i feel the same in the near future. Cheers.
Thanks Man, likewise hopefully your recovery comes soon. Like I said focus on your timeline. What’s helped me were withdrawal paws videos none of the Nofap bs on YouTube. Noah church has a lot of good info and so does gabe deem. When you’re in the worst of it you can’t relate to things when they say you get better, not until you get better. That’s why I no longer need this forum because I can’t relate to the suffers. I’m on the other side and now I completely understand what the recovered people meant. Good Luck
If you noticed little progress then that’s still recovery. I think once your Anhedonia lifts that’s when you can get a true sign of it. My Anhedonia lifted and so did a bunch of other symptoms back in April. As months gone by gradually I have been getting better. Good luck man
i am not to far behind you as i feel recovery is coming to an end for me to.
I really cant wait to leave this forum for good.
What symptoms do you still have ?
