Hey guys, Since I've been on this site, my longest streak without PMO has been about two and a half days. Although, I struggle to kick the habit, logically speaking, I understand how dangerous sexual addiction is. Ever since, I've developed this addiction to PMO, I've been constantly guilty, excessively tired, depressed, addicted to junk food and insecure. Obviously, I often get urges to relapse. During this urges, I go through what seems to be an existential crisis: "do I want to wank off or do I want to say no? If I wank off, I'll continue to cycle. If I say no, I'll become one step closer to kicking the habit." During these "existential crises," I debate for a long time and most time, I choose the former option. I had one of these "existential crises" a few minutes ago. As I stated earlier, I debated whether or not I want to wank off or not for a while (about 15 minutes). While debating, I thought, "Why am I being so indecisive? Indecision is more stressful than making a choice, the latter choice of course. Sure, change comes with stress. That's the reason I struggle with saying no. Being someone who's used to abusing his serotonin supply, not masturbating is stressful. Although experiencing the fear-of-the-unknown is stressful, indecision is even more stressful because it makes making the choice, an easy one to make in this case, seem like the faith of humanity is in your hands and really, it's not. To simplify, the situation, all of want to quit PMO and in quitting PMO, we have two options: working towards the goal or work against it. Seeing how we want to quit PMO, the choice is easy to make: work towards the goal. This is really a dilemma that has a predetermined decision that's been made for you; you just have to act on it. Aristotle stated that reason must rule over emotions. Emotionally, many of us want to masturbate but rationally, we don't, based on our goals. As quitting PMO is a reasonable goal, we must choose that over our emotional urges to do PMO. Aristotle's statement is a reason why there is no need for indecision. Because the reasonable choice is the choice that's already been determined and the only path to recovery. Sure, quitting PMO is stressful but an exaggerated dilemma is even more stressful. You have a path to take and you have logic on your side. Ignore your urges and don't debate whether or not you want to wank off. DON'T wank off because that's the option that will lead to success. After thinking about that, I'm going to say no today and remind myself to say no everyday. I believe I can kick the habit. I believe we all can. If you're going to stress, choose the short term stress of making a change and not the recurrent stress of being indecisive between the right and wrong decisions. Tell me what you think!
