A friend of mine and I held each other accountable at the turn of the new year for the 90 day challenge. We are nearly at the halfway mark and thought it would be a good idea to plan in advance how we should approach our relationship to PMO after the 90 day mark. So far we've found the experience fluctuating but not so terrible. I personally haven't really had deep troughs, but I've definitely had days where the libido is so overwhelming that I have had trouble focusing. I think both of us agree that P is insidious and toxic so we are thinking of removing that from our lives permanently (responsible P use doesn't exist...). However, we are increasingly inclined to think MO to relieve the pressure build-up once in a while might not be a bad idea? (This is the first topic for discussion/advice.) Another question we have is: does the dynamic of abstinence change in the long run? Does the exaggerated increase/depressed libido cycle start to wane over time? Is there a certain steady state that is reached after a long period of abstinence? (This is the second topic of discussion/advice, and would impact the topic above.) I would be very grateful if you could share your thoughts/advice.
