I have made sporadic attempts to recover since July of 2013 and previously had a journal in the 25-29 section. Keeping a loose journal of my positive progress and experiences could serve to benefit me, so I'm willing to give it another go. It doesn't hurt that I enjoy writing! Here are some cliffs: Been a loner since college and a major recluse Virgin who has never dated before, despite being a good-looking dude PMO addiction started from a young age. Fractured my penis in 2010 during masturbation, which led to a downward spiral and depression for several years. Developed PIED, PE, among other complications. Regained amazing sexual health after several spurts of no PMO. To my delight, the situation is now better than ever and still improving. If not for PIED eventually leading me to discovering Gary Wilson and YBOP I may still be deep in the throes of this, or even worse. I am forever grateful to have discovered such a beacon of hope in a time of utter misery and despair. Other big vice is internet addiction and, essentially, living vicariously instead of for myself. Also developed an addiction to junk food in the midst of being in the throes of recovery from PMO. Successfully gave up gaming since the start of 2015, which had been a major addiction since childhood Revealed my addiction to parents last year and they have been very supportive. They are the only constant people in my life that I talk to regularly. I'm lucky to have them. Been in the same office job shortly after college for almost six years now. I don't have a real passion for it. Despite being in a good position for advancement, all signs are pointing towards a career change. I live below my means, so urgency in this area of my life is not as pressing. Have a long history of great apathy, inert laziness, and not venturing outside of my comfort zone. Also a perfectionist Health-wise I am good, but only because I'm getting by on decent genetics. I am currently out of shape and have a very poor diet. Mentally speaking I still suffer from occasional bouts of mild depression, but have gradually gained a more positive outlook on life these last few years. Fairly certain the longest I've gone without porn is just over 50 days. I've gone longer without MO, but letting porn go has been a challenge I've been wrestling with for well over three years. I have a long road ahead of me, but I possess all the tools needed to transform myself into something much more. To light a fire under myself is such a task, but with great effort comes great rewards. Life is worth living. Sacrifices will be made. Serious effort will be put forth to achieve happiness.
