Was reading a book and this quote hit me hard: "Have you ever noticed the double standard with judgments about physical and emotional discomfort. [...] Conversely, when we experience emotional discomfort (such as anxiety or frustration) we tend to immediately reject these experiences. We do not stop to consider if we pushed too hard or not hard enough. We typically label all emotional discomfort as "bad" or "wrong". We assume the distress is a signal that something is wrong. This type of reaction feeds the spiral. It leads to activation and struggle and the instinct to pull back rather than lean in. In our experience, willingness to experience both physical and emotional discomfort is a key factor in success..." That's pretty much it. For all this time whenever anxiety kicks in and I fear it is the withdrawal from PMO I hurry up to go back into the old vice, scared that I'm doing it wrong and that maybe Nofap ain't for me. Even with paroxetine withdrawal I'm just coasting the bad mood because I believe I have no choice on the matter, but regarding PMO I'm refusing to pass through an inch of anxiety. That's gotta change.
