'Withdrawal is just nasty.'
'This cold turkey thing is just so brutal.'

Every week on this journey is a surprise layered on surprise. My theme word for week 1 was Discovery. Week 2 is Elation. Week 3 is Healing. Now for the 4th week its Withdrawal. And its not something that i was at all expecting.

"...had i known then what i know now i would have realised that sex wasnt (only) what i wanted. It was touch, someone in my arms." (Robinson, M 2009:171)

Prologue

During the week emerson asked me what I was hoping to achieve and I replied a bit pompously, nothing, that I was just along for the ride. As it turns out, after the events of the week, what I should probably have said was: what I most need at the moment is to heal. Healing was very much to be the theme of the week.

Week 2

My prosaic and sometimes indifferent husband has changed by a heavenly magic into an ardent and entrancing lover, for whose coming I watch with all the tender raptures of a schoolgirl (Stockman, A 1896:133).

Prologue

The first words of my recent introduction oozed entrenched frustration, and yet, while my beloved and I have been on this journey for two short weeks, i now amazingly find that the quotation above--a patient testimonial from Alice Stockman MD--expresses my sentiments towards 'her' most exactly.

Lately ive found myself falling into what you describe here as a PMO (Porn+Masturbation+Orgasm) trap. Im not really sure when it started, some time last year. At its peak up to four times in one session, it was starting to interfere with my work, concentration, and zest for life. What follows is likely to be personal, and at times detailed. It will make public that which is normally private, the trials and tribulations of an intimate but painful relationship.
