  3. I ended up doing that and I have calmed down. I think we have to remember urges will not last forever.

    And your brain will do anything it can to get what it thinks it needs. Deception, pain, hopelessness are usually your brain despairing for the dopamine hit it fears will never come again. It comes from a deep seated instinct we have to fear and fix scarcity and starvation. Exercise your prefrontal cortex - your "brain's brain"- and convince yourself that you are okay and you will be okay. Teach yourself to trust that you will provide. You're doing great!
  5. Thank you friend!

    No. Your brain craves porn, not your whole body. You need to spin your negative reaction about the urge; simply understand that your urges are a natural process during rebooting. You can't heal without going through them. Thinking that when the urge arrives has helped me tremendously, so I hope it helps you too.
