    With all of the porn addicts here, I assume there is some mental illness as well. Has anyone on here gotten off of medication for anxiety and depression? If so what was your strategy?

    Did NoFap help with this process for you?

    I am on 150mg which is a medium dose for the SSRI I am taking. You know, through out the years it has seemed to help but then sometimes it doesn’t seem to. Has sexual side effects.

    I am just researching the subject of tapering down. Looks like it can be hell if not done properly.

    From what I have researched the way to do it is a painfully slow taper. If you taper too fast you can really experience discomfort. I won’t even try for another few months because I have too much going on with my job at the moment.
