I have been browsing this forum for 3 years ever since my visual snow started. This is my first post where I wanted to share my story and road to recovery. My visual snow started when I was in 2nd year University.
At this time, I launched two internet companies in the past and was very very passionate about entrepreneurship. I worked crazy hours for years prior, pretty much all day everyday on the computer writing code and thinking of the next big idea. I was absolutely obsessed with it. Now on my 19th birthday, I went out to a bar and got super drunk (legal drinking age where I am is 19). That morning, I woke up with extreme brain fog that I never experienced before in my life. At the time I thought it was a bad hangover but this turned into a hangover that never went away and became permanent. After that night, I started experiencing extreme nausea and fatigue after eating as well as permanent brain fog and anxiety. After 3 months, my visual snow started to come into play and I literally started to think I was going crazy. I started to see doctors, been through all of the tests and everything came back as normal. They kept telling me everything was in my head. I lived like this for 3 years, became very antisocial and went from an A student to a C student. Still persuade entrepreneurship but had a huge burden from the brain fog and visual snow.
It has been 3 years and my visual snow and brain fog are pretty much gone. I hit extreme burnout which took me 3 years to recover from. So originally, I cut back on all of the crazy hours I used to work, started excersizing, started eating healthy, surrounded myself with positive people, did as many things that I was drawn to but this improved my condition by 50%. My brain fog would occur 3 days a week but I still had visual snow 24/7. I also suffered from ED(erectile disfunction) and came across a concept called porn induced ED. I followed a reboot plan, sustained from porn and masturbation for 3 months, and boom my brain fog and visual snow were completely gone. I started to become extremely addicted to porn in University since I had my own private room where as before I could only do it one or twice a week.
I am not trying to claim that this will help everyone but this is my story and how I have recovered from it. Thanks to everyone in this community, I just want to say that for me, it was a chemical burnout in the brain that resulted from over working and porn/masturbation addiction.

ONE MONTH LATER
Just wanted to update that I pretty much have my life back together. Here were the changes have noticed:
- Visual Snow is 99% gone. I see light flashes occasionally but not nearly as bad as it used to be
- Anxiety is completely gone. I flew to a new city to attend a bunch of interviews last week and during the interviews, zero anxiety and my speak was so coherent. No umm’s, etc. Ended up landing a dream job I never would have been able to get when I was sick.
- General everyday happiness and energy. I can’t explain it in words but it was like I was reborn and given a second change on life.
- Girls notice me more plus lots of sexual energy.
Overall, I would highly recommend everyone to try this. It has completely changed my life. This is where I was inspired. https://www.yourbrainonporn.com/your-brain-on-porn-series
