    I'm 23 years old, I started PMO when I was 12 and did it every other day as stress relief. I had very little social interaction with other adolescents and none with the opposite sex. I was a very toxic person, as well. Fast forward to college days, and at 19 I had the experience that everyone with PIED is familiar with, and it's gotten me on this program. I've managed to have successful sex now a few times during periods of extended abstinence from PMO (2+ months, and on my longest streak of 4 months when I felt 100% cured). This progress has always led me to relapse and then binging. I'm not good with women at all, nor am I good at making friends. It's difficult for me to even try to put myself in a situation where I might be with an actual partner and such a thing only seems to happen once every couple of years. For me, this often translates into an excuse to relapse.

    PMO is still something I struggle with and it's not at all uncommon for me to peak just out of discomfort. I currently am stuck with my somewhat dysfunctional family in a small town where it's hard for me to relate to anybody. I'm trying to work enough to move on to better things. Things are slow, though.
