Hey XmasTURBatorX, hope you're feeling better. Dont want to get into a shit-slinging match here, but I reckon if you feel you need to seek help then go for it, mate. I agree with recoveringfromporn that you shouldn't go into it just for drugs though. Therapy is proven to be far more beneficial, try a few sessions and leave it up to your psych as to whether they think you need SSRIs or not. I've had a shitty past couple of months but I'm getting a lot better thanks to therapy and I've never taken any SSRIs. I reckon a couple of guys here have overstepped the line in regards to what they've been saying to you, particularly Laurynas. Mate, I don't know if you'll see this but you need to remember that reading a couple of journal entries on someones no-fap thread doesn't make you an expert on that persons mental health. You've got no idea what else might be going on in this guys life. But when he comes on this board for support, admits hes having suicidal thoughts and you tell him he sounds pathetic and needs to man up, it really fucking pisses me off. You've clearly never suffered from a depressive episode yourself otherwise you would never write something so brainless. Yeah, you have the right to your opinion, but keep it to yourself next time, you're not helping this guy. Also, these statistics you rattle off and your opinions on psychology, where'd you get them? Not from a reputable source, I'd say. Porn addiction is a facet of psychology, since it deals with how the brain functions and its effects on our emotions, so if you don't believe in it you may as well get off this site. I don't know you mate, I'm sure you're a nice guy, but you need to think more before you give your opinions on a strangers mental health. XmasTURBatorx, as I said before, you need to do what you think is best for you. I think you should explore other avenues before getting into the SSRIs, but that's your call to make. Hey, perhaps you're already starting to feel better. Anyway, if you need someone to talk to about this stuff (I've been through it recently and it's fucking hard) you can message me if you want.
