Okay, I'm a 20 year old straight male. I found this site around early November of last year. I lot of what I've read about others experiences has resonated with me.
Through trial and error I would go a few days and slip. Then a couple of weeks. I was really hard on myself anytime I did slip. I've always held myself to a very high standard so I get easily frustrated. Well now I've gotten through an entire month cold turkey from everything. And I'm very proud of myself for that. I feel I've gotten to the point where I no longer want porn or need it for that matter. (I still make sure to keep myself in check of course.)
Needless to say, withdrawal has been one crazy ride. On some days I feel like I am gonna be just fine, and I feel really happy inside just knowing I can accomplish what I want.. but then some days will be the exact opposite. Depression, anxieties, and just crazy thinking in general. I start to get mad at myself for some of the things that'll pop up in my mind. Some days I can really see the changes in myself, some not at all.
I guess I'm mostly posting this just to tell someone about it, and to hear some, hopefully comforting, words. Do these crazy mood swings and changes in thought patterns generally occur on a regular basis even after getting past the 1 month mark? When does it start to chill out and leave me alone? :(
Thanks for any replies!
