Will I forget about PMO eventually?

    They said to ignore PMO and go on with your life, but the urges often make me focus on reminding that I am fighting PMO.

    I am trying to "ignore" it, but the first few weeks often the hardest ngl.

    Will it ever diminish? I want to forget about PMO and move on with life.
  2. I actually don't think you should forget about PMO entirely, and I don't think trying to ignore urges is the same thing as forgetting why you are fighting. Maybe a bad example but think how your life would be if you lost a limb, say an arm or a leg. Life would eventually go on and you would adapt to the point you dont actively think about it. But you're unlikely to ever outright forget about it. Don't see this as doom and gloom, allow it to make you more resilient. You're a fighter, so fight.

    What have you replaced PMO with in your life? You will only forget about PMO if you fill your life with other positive distractions. If everything stays the same and the only change is no PMO, I would think we would all relapse.

    So far, I've been integrating writing/journalling, but that's all. I haven't tried exercising, nor consistent meditating (or praying)

    I've been occupied a lot by College, maybe studies will help me as a positive distractions, I don't know. I still feel aimless and stressed by College too.

    College is keeping you busy and is distracting, which is good, but you say it's stressful which is bad.
    Find more things that are enjoyable and do not cause stress. The easiest by far is walking. Walking is great, especially in nature. It clears your head, gives you exercise, and is easy to do.
    I can't recommend more things because I don't know what you like, but find something. Try something new, you will eventually find more things that are good for you.
    Good luck,

    Hopefully one day a normal sex life will help you forget this horrible porn nightmare.
