Hey all! Saturday February 9th was my 1 year porn free! I just wanted to share a couple things I’ve learned, nothing much.
- Wow does everything get better! I went from being a husband who wasn’t up to the task most nights (never had PIED), to having a sex drive off the charts.
- Recover in your own way. Some guys in recovery at my church insisted that I needed to participate in a weekly meeting. Then a user here also thought so too, which I love that people are able to talk about porn weekly/daily and not get triggered by it, awesome! I spent over a year in “active” recovery and never made it more than I think 3 or 4 months. But now that I’ve learned from those guys, how to deal with my emotions and learning coping things, abstinence is just better for me than a recovery group.
I know it isn’t a lot of insight but keep up the good fight all! They say it takes 2 years for your brain to recover, half way there!
