After being a PMO addict from my very early teens until the age of 21 I finally began my recovery by started nofap, and after many failures I finally reached a 40+ day streak which is the longest I’ve ever gone with pmo. I felt amazing but about a week ago I relapsed and have been relapsing ever since and have fallen lower than I ever have before. My pmo addiction affects me financially so to make it even worse I have blown every bit of money I have and am dangerously in debt. This addiction has always made me borderline suicidal but at the moment Ive never been so close to attempting it.
I also realised during the past week that although I want to quit so badly, I also don’t want to fully let it go and as a result I dont even have faith that I can ever be free of it and believe that I will eventually always fail whether that be after a 7/50/100/1000 day streak. Another thing I realised in the past week is that for so long I’ve blamed my parents for not being able to make many friends growing up (they were very strict) when in reality it’s been the pmo addiction stealing anything of value away from me and its been my fault the entire time.
It’s made me realise the addict mentality I have. “I’d rather fall from the ground floor than the from the 40th floor”.
I’m not really sure what I’m hoping to accomplish with this post tbh it’s really just a rant and pity party. If you can relate or have any advice/encouragement for me, please go ahead and drop it below.
