    TRIGGER WARNING
    For those of you who are currently struggling with depression or suicidal tendencies, this thread might not be for you. Always remember that you matter, and find someone to talk.

    ************************
    I am definitely not the first one who came up with this idea.

    I mean, it's common sense, right? Doing PMO is a self-inflicted injury to your daily life. This means consuming porn equals harming yourself. I just recently got this mindset after I relapsed 3 days ago. It was a tough relapse. Spent 3+ hours looking at porn from 8 to 11.30 PM. I should've been out there socializing! Or sleeping!

    The thing that scares me the most is the fact that I did not care at all about my well-being in that 3+ hours time frame. I was thirsty as hell because my heart keeps beating rapidly and I started sweating. I can feel my mouth drying. I wasn't able to do right thing which is having a glass of water to hydrate myself because, well, it's porn. I was really into it. For all I know I could have died from exhaustion or dehydration right at that exact moment.

    I am also aware of the consequences of watching porn and ejaculating at late night. I will not be able to have a proper quality sleep and I'm gonna wake up feeling like shit and spend the rest of the day as an unproductive human garbage. I know the consequences because I have been doing this for years. Yet I kept scrolling down. Looking to find a hotter picture or video to get another shot of dopamine in my brain.

    This is self harm. No doubt. I remembered I was already pretty exhausted before I decided to spend 3 hours of my life fapping instead of reading a book or taking a rest. No wonder it's easy for me to catch the cold.

    This is pretty similar to people who likes to scar their arm with a box cutter or razor blades. They know they have a big problem(s), but they're just unable or unwilling to spit it out. Scarring your arm could lead to worse things like suicidal thoughts or even an actual suicide.

    Hopefully, having a mindset that says watching porn is equal to self harm would discourage from viewing those websites again. So far, it's been working.
     
  2. 100% agreed. Porn is a self-inflicted psychological harm and physical harm.

    I'm really into that semen retention thing, y'know? Nowadays it's easier for me to get exhausted because of my frequent orgasms. When I was able to stay clean for more than 10 days, I noticed that I had a lot more energy.

    I don't think porn can create harm, physical at least
     
  6. I had to go to a physical therapist for almost one year because of the position I had been jacking off in for 15 years. And he knew exactly why I was having those issues. He sees many kids with back pain and displaced vertebras because of lying on the side in their bed for hours.

    I also destroyed my penis which is now curved because of compulsive masturbation.

    I also killed my brain because of too many dopamine hits.

    That's just the physical damage on the user's side. Because you also have the physical damage and harm it causes to the performers. Many of them especially women have huge problems later in life because of all the abuse. Their anus and vagina tissues are severely damaged. There is also the emotional damage because a lot of them are probably abused and coerced into doing stuff they didn't really want to do.

    Some of them are litterally raped but you won't know it because you don't know nothing about what is going on behind the scenes.

    This is really remarkable. Did he know this without any clues provided by you? It's interesting, our bodies tell a lot of stories about us to professionals who are attentive.

    I certainly now think that too much masturbation is a form of self-harm.

    The Bible says that a man who sins sexually, sins against his own body. Whether the Bible is your personal source of truth or not, I don't think too many of us who are (or have been) in the throes of PMO induced depression, PIED, or any other of a large number of physical or mental consequences can argue against the accuracy of that statement.

  11. Man, he can read my mind just by feeling the tension in my body. He knows more or less exactly what happened to me over the week depending on where I'm tense and how much I'm tense.

    Yes, there is no doubt about it. He knows I was PMOing like crazy. He knows that I had to have been lying down on the same side for several hours at a time every day or nearly every day to have the spine and neck problems I had. He told me to "stop watching TV on my side on the sofa" but it was a polite way to tell me to stop killing myself with PMO. He also later told me that had so many teenagers with the same problem (watching TV while lying on one side gor several hours...).

    It took me a long time to stop PMOing so he kept warning me over and over again. It was very embarassing because I know he knew I was PMOing like crazy.

    That's very interesting. And have you seen him since your streak began? Have the spine and neck issues gone away? Sounds like NoFap is really a total body overhaul in this case.
     
  13. My spine is fine now, but I still have chronic neck problems. I used to support my head straight with my arm but as a result I was spending a long time with my neck half-bent.

    He hasn't told me to "stop watching TV on the side" since I stopped PMO. But he used to say it at almost every appointment when I was PMOing.

    Absolutely you're harming yourself. You are deleting your life force. It's like a fighter in a video game losing health. He is closer to death every loss of energy.

    The treatment my physio gives me results in way more pain on one side, and I now realise that I both sleep and watch TV whilst lying on the same side.

    Wow. I'm also starting to have issues with my lower spine and my left hand is beginning to hurt a bit, since I always use my left hand to do this harmful thing. I think I should consider seeing a therapist. I'm already 7 years deep. This needs to stop. I hope you're doing great, man. Thank you for sharing with us.

    Şu anda depresyon veya intihar eğilimleriyle mücadele edenleriniz için bu konu sizin için olmayabilir. Her zaman önemli olduğunu hatırla ve konuşacak birini bul.

    Bu fikri ortaya çıkaran kesinlikle ben değilim.

    Yani, sağduyu, değil mi? PMO yapmak günlük yaşamınıza zarar veren bir yaralanmadır. Bu, porno tüketmenin kendinize zarar vermesi anlamına gelir. Kısa bir süre önce 3 gün önce nüksettikten sonra bu zihniyete sahip oldum. Zor bir nüksetti. Porno saat 8 ile 11:30 arasında bakarak 3+ saat geçirdi. Orada sosyalleşmeliydim! Veya uyuyor!

    The thing that scares me the most is the fact that I did not care at all about my well-being in that 3+ hours time frame. I was thirsty as hell because my heart keeps beating rapidly and I started sweating. I can feel my mouth drying. I wasn't able to do right thing which is having a glass of water to hydrate myself because, well, it's porn. I was really into it. For all I know I could have died from exhaustion or dehydration right at that exact moment.

    Bu, bir kutu kesici veya jiletle kollarını korkutmayı seven insanlara oldukça benzer. Büyük bir problemleri olduğunu biliyorlar, ama sadece tükürmek istemiyorlar. Kolunuzu yaralamak intihar düşünceleri ve hatta gerçek bir intihar gibi daha kötü şeylere yol açabilir.

    Umarım, porno izlemenin kendine zarar vermesine eşit olduğunu söyleyen bir zihniyete sahip olmak, bu web sitelerini tekrar görüntülemekten vazgeçirir. Şimdiye kadar çalışıyor. [/ QUOTE]
