    When I relapse to PMO or just watch P, I get this weird feeling/tension in my forehead.

    It feels like chemicals are released into the area at the front of my brain.

    Did anyone experience similar things? I am thinking that it is indeed my addicted brain reacting to the stimuli presented to it

    I have had a very similar experience, not so much when I was a teen, and in the early days of the addiction. but after a period of recovery, when I relapsed, I was lying in my bed with laptop on my lap, late at night, and when I first looked up the bad stuff, I got this weird "wheeeerrrrrrr" feeling in my head, and had like the edges of my vision go black, like a tunnel vision.
    And this weird almost like a wave of drowsyness, mixed with euphoria/hornyness come over me.

    Serious shit. Almost like smoking that first hit of a cigarette.
    Yeah, I think as the nuero-plasticity conforms to the habit, you can really notice the rush of chemicals.

    Yeah, I feel it especially when I have abstained for a period, and then relapses. Then there is a heavy rush inside the front of my head. Don't really like the feeling as it reminds me that I have in some way exposed myself too much to some explicit material. However, it can also function as a way of knowing when you must be aware of overstimulating yourself...

    Yea I know exactly what you mean. The droopy eyes, hazy vision, numbed out and lethargic. I think this is textbook brain abuse from PMO maybe something to do with the frontal lobes.

    After I started recovering seriously I had headaches/head tension for a year and half more or less consistently in varying levels. Also my ability to think and feel was non existent earlier on. 18.5 months in and I feel like I have made another breakthrough in my journey and still fill there is more to come as in normal mental arousal.

    This is exactly what I felt when I PMO'd. It's like loads of chemicals filling in the spaces in the frontal lobe.

    I feel like I am putting poison into myself, and I am always filled with regret afterwards.

    Hey man I totally know what you mean and experience it every time I relapse by myself. I can feel the dopamine that is release in my brain and it doesn’t feel good at all. I think that comes from our porn addiction and the only way to cure this is to quit Porn.

    I get this too. Always when relapsing and always when I've been edging for a long time.

    Great seeing that other people are experiencing this as well. I thought I was the only one :)
