    Hi everyone - I am 35 y/o and from Los Angeles. I have been a PMO addict for over 20 years. It was not until recently where I even thought I had a problem. Just a little over a week in and I am on my 2nd streak. I am learning and working towards to being better each day, one day at a time. After all this is a marathon and not a sprint. I can't recover from decades of escalating addiction without putting time and effort. Looking forward to connecting and supporting each other on our recoveries. Looking for an accountability partner and hoping that will bring some normal socialization back into my life. Thank you for taking the time to read this!

    This will help you a lot, watch this and say goodbye to urges forever

    But however urges are sometimes attacking even if you are focused on something else, when i got rid of those 1% foods which increases urges and started enjoying 99% other beautiful foods it became so much easyer for me ^_^
