    Hello everyone this is my first time ever joining a forum and this is my first post on here I’m am currently going through my reboot i am on my second week without PMO. I am a 27 year old male married and have 4 kids. I realized I was addicted to P when I tried to quit 2 years ago. I didn’t even know that porn addiction existed. Once I started feeling all the symptoms I started looking up what could be wrong with me and I found a lot of forms for PMO with people with symptoms similar to me. I was doing PMO everyday for years not knowing the consequences. I was able to go without Pmo for about 4 months and relapsed hard. Ever since that 4month period (almost 2 years ago) I am not able to reach close to 4 months. After that 4 months i wasn’t doing it daily but I would PMO at least once a week sometimes 3 times in 1 day and sometimes 1 time a day for 3 days . So far this 2 week reboot I’m on has been the 2nd longest since I been trying to quit. I thought I could do this on my own and could take this secret with me to the grave. I recently hit rock bottom and am tired of all the guilt and everything that comes with this addiction. I recently told my wife what I had been hiding since our marriage of 7 year. She took the news well and told me she will do whatever she can to help. This reboot has been tough it’s only been 2 weeks and these are the worst symptoms I’ve had. I’m not sure if quitting this addiction is linked to blood sugar but I have been feeling like I have hypoglycemia. Never felt this way and I am a pretty active person and once I quit I started feeling like this. I haven’t went to the doctor yet waiting to see if it’s just the symptoms of the addictions. But I’m trying and praying that this 2 week streak I have going turns into a 2 year streak then a 10 year streak and then a life time streak. Hoping I can find some people on here to help me along the way thank you.

    Hello and welcome! Great step telling your wife what’s been going on. My wife has been a huge help in all of this. She’s so supportive and understanding. Sounds like you have what it takes to get rid of this stuff...going 4 months and all. Once we get that far relapsing becomes so dangerous as you’ve found out. The water slide down the rabbit hole is quick and deadly. I wish you all the best, my man! Stay positive and give your family lots of hugs! :)
