Today is 3 weeks without orgasm and porn. I won't lie though, I did masturbate twice within these 3 weeks but not to orgasm, I controlled myself. I don't really think that masturbating has the power to make adverse effects on your brain like orgasm does, so I think masturbating is ok. However, I will keep it limited. I have avoided watching porn and orgasm for 3 weeks, so Im happy about that. I definitely feel better now after 3 weeks than I did back on Day 1. I feel more peaceful. But I still have anxiety about being near others. Its hard for me to talk to other people and I honestly don't really care for talking to others. I know that my habit of jerking off for the last 5 years has definitely destroyed my life. I have no friends, I literally live inside my room locked up and am too anxious to speak to anyone. The 3 weeks I just did does make me feel more peaceful and less irritable but I still feel anxious around others. So I wanted to know something. I read that it takes 6-8 weeks to reboot the brain. If that is the case then I havent rebooted my brain and what does it mean reboot the brain? When my brain is rebooted, do you think my social anxiety will go away? Im really desperate, honestly I was gonna commit suicide from my terrible loneliness but this website gave me hope , because i read that social anxiety can be caused by porn and masturbation and when I read that a lightbulb went off in my mind. Please tell me what does that mean the brain rebooted and how long will that take, and what happens when the brain is rebooted.
