I’ve tried to stop PMO before and saw great results. After years of PIED, I started to feel like myself again. Then after a while the excuses, the bad habits and the PMO lifestyle took back over. Needless to say the PIED came back, the guilt ridden lifestyle and loneliness from the shame of my actions. This has been harder for me than quitting smoking and that took me almost five years. Interestingly enough this is the fourth year since I discovered PIED, PMO and the no cap movement. I can’t even say why I decided to stop PMO this time. I guess you could consider it a ‘cold turkey’ decision. It definitely hasn’t been easy, but it seems to be something I feel can be achieved successfully now. I see a lot of encouraging stories in the forums and I know it isn’t easy. I’m rooting for success and happiness for all of you! I intend to keep posting as I find my way. Feel free to comment on my journey!
