    Hi everyone! This is my first post or thread ever in my life! So it's just an attempt to archive any result in a sort of a quick way. No, not results but quick info of the topic. Cause the thought that I might have another addiction bothers me. Why another? Because I quit consuming alcohol a year ago and still feeling fine. Just imagine - a Russian seaman not drinking vodka or anything else... So as you understood I'm a guy from Russia and now when I tried to quit watching porn a couple of times by myself I realized that I need something more powerful then just watching educational or motivation videos.
    So today is my first day of trying to quit PMO. As I said I tried by myself couple of times but interesting thing happening - war between me and me. It lasts about 2-3 minutes and me who wants a dopamine injection conquers me who wants to try a new life. Interesting...
    Also I briefly read some scary stories of the people who had withdrawal symptoms and just curious if it's true. So along with quitting PMO it's also an experiment for me...
    Simply believe and may the force be with you!

  3. Yeah mate, withdrawals are real. They may get scary at some moments but mostly they are mental.

    Once you start cutting off PMO, the body begins the working of balancing dopamine receptors, breaking old porn neural pathways and transforming your sexuality as it was intended to be. So withdrawals can happen due to recovery taking place inside.

    All of us spent a lot of our time doing PMO and so if you have to bear some mental and physical symptoms to make the correction, it's worth that. I have experienced mild headaches and insomnia for a few days during my previous long streak of 130 days. They aren't that bad.

    Just willpower won't do a good job. You need knowledge and realization. As it's been said if you know yourself and your enemy, you need not to fear the results of even 100 battles.

    Check out this rebooting guide. It really helped me out.

    Another book is this which transformed my heart ( adultery is always committed from the heart ) and has now made me an overall better man. Wish you all the best :)

    So I think today would be the second day of my path for curing from addiction to porn. I didn't say in my first post for how long I've been living with PMO. So the period is approximately 15 years or even more. Always thought that it is normal and never talked to somebody about this aspect of my life.
    Tonight I had a dream with sexual content and in the morning had some kind of a slight urge. But still I can fight it and feeling that I'm not alone is so good!
    Also I wanted to say thanks to the guys who replied on my first post! I started reading the guide already...
    I will continue to share my experience here and later, maybe in a week I'll go to Reboot Logs section and create a thread there.
    Simply believe and may the force be with you!
