Hi everyone this is my first post. I never normally feel the need to join forums or post anything for that matter, but this no PMO for 60+ days is interesting.

I've never had massive problems with women but I have had a steady increase in social anxiety since turning 18 (I'm 24 now). Since my teens I've had many addictions; cocaine, ecstasy, cigarettes, alcohol, weed, junk food, and of course, beating the old man off 5-10 times a day. I've been off the cigs, coke, and pills for years now and definitely won't go back, but I still drink occasionally (I did give up for my new years resolution but now I'll have 1 or 2 or 3 if I have a date or if I'm meeting new women) and I smoke more weed than anyone I know. I assume I jack off more than anyone else I know too because I do it a LOT.

So after visiting yourbrainonporn.com and learning more about how the dopamine system actually works, I definitely see the need for a reboot, but quitting PMO is just one thing (actually its 3). I'm quitting junk food, weed and booze too.

This is day 1.

So far so good with the PMO abstinence, I've only wanted a wank 3 times already, but I won't do it. I know better than that now. As for alcohol, I don't really like the stuff anymore anyway so this is gonna be easy. As for weed, the most addictive thing for me isn't the buzz (being stoned gets boring after 10 years), its rolling spliffs and feeling the texture of smoke going down my throat, followed by a big exhale. This is why my weed consumption increased loads when i gave up the ciggies.

Now I know that junk food is different to drugs and both are different to PMO, but the mechanisms that affect your limbic system in regards to dopamine release are the same. So if you're going to do a no PMO reboot, wouldn't it make sense to do this with all your addictions at the same time? Otherwise you're still getting your dopamine fix if you just replace one addiction with another, surely?

Now I've never done this before so I may be wrong on a few things, and I often am, so any feedback would be appreciated, + I will post updates on where I'm at and how I'm doing.

PS.
I've just thought, I haven't woke up with an erection in years, and I think I've only had one sex dream in years. That can't be healthy...

This motivates me to try this myself. It's sad that it's hard for me to go longer than a week with out PMO. What makes it worse is I know its sad but I except it and continue to do it, experiencing the same things you did before you rebooted. Oh well, I'm going to try this PMO reboot and hopefully it can change my perspective in a positive way like it did for you. Stay awesome!

DAY 7!

I still haven't touched myself. This is a personal best! I see some tits on the internet accidentally and got REALLY horny, and thought I'd just quickly look at some more, but resisted the urge and closed the web browser.

I'm still wanting to spank the monkey but my rational circuits must be strengthening because my rational brain is louder and stronger and dominating at the moment. I'm keeping myself busy, lifting my weights again, going out and socializing, eating healthy, and not smoking (I had a bit on my mates spliff yesterday but fuck it I'll allow myself).

I feel like I'm at war with myself, but I don't feel negative because I feel like I'm winning! I just keep reminding myself of the benefits and that I'm only on day 7, and although a week is the longest I haven't blown my load for and it feels like forever, relative to other no-fappers 7 days is not worth talking about.

So I haven't noticed any immediate benefits yet, I'm still a bit anxious (but it's usually manageable anyway), and still no brekkie-ereckie, but I'l tell you what though, my dreams are getting really weird and the past week they have been porn related. Last night I rescued a 20 year old girl from her porn career and we ended up together. Weird. Maybe my subconscious is telling me something?

I'l post again in a week... peace

Nice work guys, 60 days without jacking off is a small price to pay to improve your sex life in my opinion!

Southwest- as far as I understand, yeah the addiction to junk food is ultimately the same as other addictions because you're addicted to the dopamine hit itself and the trigger for that can be junk food or weed or porn or whatever.

Having said that though, I don't know how interchangeable they are. Like if you get super horny, drinking a can of coke won't necessarily change that even though you might still be triggering a dopamine surge...

But anyway keep us updated on how it all goes!

Yeah I'm not sure if the brain just wants its dopamine hit in general or if certain pathways need their individual dopamine hit, eg "The Porn Pathway" needing a dopamine hit or "The Smoking Pathway" needing a dopamine hit. So I think it might be best to just abstain from anything addictive, just for good measure.

Anyway, I'm on Day 10 now of no PMO, and had my first short term benefit this morning; I woke up with an erection! This honestly hasn't happened in maybe 5 years. I thought it would take longer for this to happen just from reading other peoples accounts, but i guess I must be lucky. I never suffered from ED despite masturbating heavily for 10 years, but do get DE only during sex though. I remember the last time I actually ejaculated into a woman, it was about 6 years ago. Since then I've had to fake orgasms, talk about role-reversal haha.

I've still got a long way to go, my goal is until my anxiety disappears. Not that its crippling or anything, but it is there, sometimes slightly worse than usual. I never had it when I was a child, or even a young teenager, its only come on in my adult life, and I think I know why; dopamine D2 receptor deficiency and possibly an accumulation of ΔFosB. Nothing a bit of "no-fapping" cant fix!

I'l keep you updated on any more improvements

Fuck yeah man, nice work!

I seem to remember it getting easier after 2-3 weeks but I'm sure everyone's experiences vary. 20 days is a 3rd of the way there though... keep at it mate.

I quit watching porn after dating this girl, whitout knowing I hit the flatline, no libido and weak erection in our first try of sex, very sad....after thinking there was something wrong with me I read all about ybop, it have been two weeks and I feel better and have unwanted erections, my question is should try to have sex with her again? I'm a bit afraid, should I let her masturbate me? We kiss a lot and she is waiting we have some privacy again
