Ok, so I had CBT today. The thing is, that whilst having the therapy, I kept having intrusive thoughts, and impulses. It has upset me because I don't want these things. I'm gonna tell my girlfriend but I also thought I would say on here since i'm using the forum for support.

I think maybe I have some sort of impulse disorder or at the least I have issues around this.

I'm sorry to hear that. I imagine CBT is quite hard to focus on in many ways. I've never had it myself. Hopefully next time will be a more positive experience for you. Have you told your therapist?

I haven't told my therapist because the thoughts, etc revolve around her. I think the impulses are due to my addiction. Today is my first day of abstinence. Hopefully as I keep on the road to recovery, all other issues will go away.

Hello, maybe it was a bit like overload to have CBT on the first day of abstinence? I'm, only guessing of course. Have you tried meditation. I have a lot of intrusive thinking too and it works really well for me. I do mindfulness training. I feel on charge of thing since I have been practicing this. Maybe it's something to look into.

Hello Deliah, I have started doing mindfulness since yesterday. Hopefully I will see some benefits in the near future? I remember in 2012 I went 8 months without acting on my addiction. And by the 4th month or so, my mind/brain was in a much better shape.
This time though my abstinence is permanent.
