    At face value I am quite a confident guy, I don't take shit from other people, I am quite respected at what I do, I work out regularly and meditate on a day to day basis but despite all of that there's this one factor that has been killing all the effort I've been putting in to fully enjoy the life I've been working towards, and that is the anxiety that comes from excess use of PMO.

    Throughout the years I've had different streaks and realized that whenever I've been able to abstain from periods of over 7 days my anxiety would drastically diminish despite not changing anything else in my lifestyle. Somehow I have less brain frog, I worry less about the future, I don't reflect much on my flaws and how things could've turned out differently in the past. All of that by simply changing this one thing in my life, which is abstaining from PMO.

    Now I am writing this post not only to share my experience but to confirm whether the benefit I am getting from abstaining really is from quitting PMO or is it just a placebo? And if meditation should come secondary if you're a PMO addict? If anyone else can relate or simply want to share their experiences that would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi. I am currently on my 15th day of abstinence of no P. and M. I also experience less brain fog and worries about things that have worried me in the past. I'm also don't change anything else in my lifestyle. Moreover, i think now i can focus longer on my job. I have become more confident in dealing with others. In a past i have felt insecure calling someone and I put it off in time. Now those problems are gone. I can more easily call someone in matters relating to my job.
    Recently also i have noticed than i have more fun reading books and i can really focus on them.
