Well, I guess this is the beginning for me. I'm going to try to go until September without masturbating. I've went for sustained periods of no orgasm before, some lasting up to a month long. However, I still masturbated a LOT during those periods (maybe even more than usual) and I did not find there was any difference in how I felt so I relapsed. When I say "how I felt", I'm referring to my mental state. I have extreme brain fog and can barely concentrate or think most of the time. I also suffer from chronic fatigue which is annoying. There is some minor ED, but to be honest getting that worked out is secondary to getting my mind back on the right track. I'm young (20) and still in university. I used to be smart as a whip, and had basically every career path imaginable open to me. This PMO addiction has crippled my memory and brain to the point where I'm struggling to do average in school (which I think is pretty amazing considering how I feel). Reading some of the blogs and rebooting accounts has really given me some hope to beat this thing. It's inspiring to read some of you say "I can't believe how good it feels, I forgot what it was like to feel this way, etc".
I'll hopefully see you on the other side!
