Reboot Again, no more solo. I will try and keep it short as I know oftentimes people do not read long drawn out post in these forums so I'll try and keep it simple and answer any questions you may have. As my username may suggest, I have been blessed to now be experiencing the anxiety level. that started just about two years ago almost to the month, experiencing the first time in my life in a anxiety attack. PMO, has been a very strong routine since I was in my early 20s. Prior to that I had exposure but never really thought much of it as life was simply too busy. As the thread title suggests reboot again, I'm okay giving myself credit for limiting the amount to once or twice weekly. Prior it could be an everyday occurrence. With little or no break. In 2017 I had no PMO, for six months, after that is when the weekly occurrence started, but was much more manageable than a decades previously. It was a level I stayed at without any problems, or are none that I would admit. Anxiety was present at the same time the abstinence begin and with amitriptyline I was able to keep those levels at a very minimal and manageable. Unlike the millions of times before I had attacked this problem, I'm able to do so with a sort of calm and understanding that I am simply trying again to make this work. I can see putting a lot of pressure to sustain periods of time do not help at all at least not for me. The more pressure I put on myself to meet goals the harder it becomes to meet them. I was able to cut usage down to a third of what had been for decades. To me that his success but not quite enough. Whether 100% PMO will it ever occur is something I don't need to think about. As I know it's very easy for me to think about nothing else being it's been going on for so long. Anyways here I am, looking to attempt my first reboot in a long time. In the last two years the most time that has gone in between has been a week or two. And then only once or twice a week. I am not making an excuse I'm painting a picture for anyone that may be reading this this is what I'm going through. I do think I have made progress over the years but for me it's going to be a long drawn out solution. And I have come to terms that I need to be working on this daily, but not the pressures to meet goals that have been unrealistic for me at this point. I'm going to be doing the way I used to do when I had been drinking, I did so one day at a time, and now I've not had anything to drink in over 12 years. So I do know it's within my mind and my system to end addictions. In closing you may think I replaced one with the other, no there's those and many others and I have eliminated all three that I had at one point and only have one left and that's why I'm here. Think you for welcoming me here and give me the opportunity to use these great resources.
