Day 1. Let's be smart this time.
Day 2. Still opening various pages by muscle memory. Scared, closing them before the content loads. I need to spend as little as possible time in bed, when home alone. Mornings are tough, I'm dizzy, half-asleep, may fall prey to former habits. Cold showers, a must, immediately after I wake up. I've been using PMO as a crutch for insomnia and anxiety - need to look after those two and have a plan, before they hit me. If I don't, I'll revert to the old clutch, I've seen it done so many times.
Day 3. Need to stay as much as possible away from screens, regardless of what I'm watching. Even regular sites provide triggers.
Day 4. Lots of sexual thoughts, need to be careful. Was thinking of some sort of elastic wrist band, that I can pinch each time I catch myself daydreaming. Was wondering if you guys know anything of this.
Day 5. NO Instagram!! I simply cannot deal with Instagram, the place is a soft porn site, plain and simple. Facebook only 15mins a day, only in public, no checking of ex's. I'm sick and tired of starting from scratch. As I said, let's be smart this time. I'm not this addiction.
Yeah instagram and really any social media is probably best to stay away from.
Day 6. The days start to add-up. Sexual flashbacks, images my brain projects to get me back to a common place. Not an option anymore, need to look forward. Started taking 5-HTP together with Mg, helps me out with sleep.
Day 7. Need to be careful with boredom, huge trigger. Taking a step back, I think I need a schedule even for my time-off, to ensure I don't get bored and alone (worst combo!)
Day 8. Healthy social interaction helps ground you better. Need to make this a priority, though not gonna be easy, with me being an introvert and all.
Day 9. Physically tired, but still going strong.
Day 10. Started to feel uncomfortable, as if the overall satisfaction level in the brain is going down. Will go exercise and figure out some activity to naturally raise dopamine levels.
Day 11. Met a former girlfriend, hugged and kissed her (huge boner), got back home alone and need a cold shower Doing well, otherwise.
Keep up the good work!
Cheers mate, appreciate the support!
Day 12: keep going.
Day 13. Concerned about a full-on week-end of sex with my girlfriend returning from her holiday. I'm worried that excessive orgasm may derail my efforts to rewire my brain (1) and the chaser effect that may follow (2).
Day 17. Expecting the chaser effect to kick-in, doing well so far.
Day 18. Tons of chaser effect today, with a bit of delay. The brain is constantly looking for a quick reward. Need to be careful - not a lot of great, exciting things happening in my life. On the contrary, lots of stress, so PMO is (and probably always be) lurking..
Day 23. Keeping up, had tons of sex this week-end, too. Tryin' to prepare mentally for future periods of "drought". Still going strong with cold showers. Also, need to start some form of organised sports at least one hour a day, to burn all energy before going to bed.
