Yeah, I was fearing it was over analysis and if there even was a point to my comment about sex addiction and porn addiction. I guess in the end we recognize it's a habit that is detrimental (I guess there are different possible personal reasons here) to us and when we try to stop it we see we can't. I can't even stop PMO for 6 months just to have a look at what my life would be like without this element in it. Personally I don't buy all that YBOP claims (though I don't reject it all either) and also I can see a lot of the negative aspects the "NoFap cult" has on my type of mind (becoming more obsessed with it then necessary, black or white thinking, even more negative emotions because of the relapses). But still, I want to see what my life would be like if I stopped porn. At least to test it. The constant trying to stop and slipping back makes me think a lot about all this. What is sex addiction, does it exist. Is porn really the problem. Etc. It's just hard to wrap my head around how something that I feel ashamed of after I'm done turns me on so bad a few days or weeks later. Anyways Merton, keep up the good work man ! I'm always happy to read your updates.
