Was just wondering, i know there are a lot of different opinions on dream O's.
Right now i'm on about day 17 in recovery. I feel pretty good. The thing is though since i started i have had about four wet dreams. Things is i don't feel they have had negative impacts on my recovery. usually after i MB to some porn, or MB in general the first couple of weeks there is that desire to binge and go back to porn again. However after these dreams i really don't feel that. Is it possible that this is because i don't get that same dopamine surge that i do while i may be watching porn. You know that rush that an addict can have.
I read some things where people actually viewed these wet dreams as a good thing, as part of withdrawal. I kind of a agree, i view them as my brain trying to make last ditch efforts to go back into porn. However as i continue to fight the urges i can win the battle. The content in the dreams has varies, some of it has been porn, some real sexual situations, some nothing at all. Again i feel like my brain wants to go back, but i won't let it. That makes me feel good about it. Just wanted to see how others viewed these dreams.
I have been dealing with this addiction for a while now, a year or so. Each time i mess up i learn something new. I always used p and mb as a crutch to deal with life issues. However i have learned to avoid that, i feel like im def on my way to recovery. Just gotta keep pushing.
