So, what's new?
I've been having some really, really good days the past week. Days where I felt I could accomplish anything, with high energy levels, confidence like nothing I've ever felt before, and a sensation of inner peace and calm. So that's pretty good.
However, today (day #15) I have to say I don't feel the best. I actually feel a little bit depressed. I'm not surprised though, as the recovery process from something like sex- or "PMO"-addiction will never be linear in terms of positive effects. Some days my brain will just scream for that quick dopamine hit, and just cry when it doesn't get it. That's how beating any addiction works I've found out reading research.
Below is a graph I found on yourbrainonporn.com, and I can totally relate to what the guy who made this is trying to show. Reboot of dopamine receptors is not a linear process to betterness, it's quite the bumpy ride. You just have to hang in there, and even on those bad days, try to do something good for yourself. Don't let your feelings control you!
Talk to you soon, friends.
