Week 1, Day 1: I'm 21 years old, in my final year of university. Have never had a sexual experience before, spent my entire high school in the library working hard to get into this dream university of mine. Everyone in high school talked about how easy it was to get action in university and I bought into the fantasy. But when I came here, I realised I had poor social skills and couldn't talk to girls no matter how friendly they were. I got really shy around them and behaved really arrogant to hide this. All my friends were getting action and making fun of me for being the only one who hadn't done it. I turned to porn to take the edge off the fact I was sexually frustrated, lonely and felt worthless - if it was so easy, why was I failing? Things just got worse because the guys began spreading word that I was still a virgin. I couldn't go out with one of them drunkenly laughing about it in public to a girl. My confidence took a huge dive and I began to think I would never have a healthy sexual experience. So porn became a way for me to deal with stress of any kind and I took to abusing it - sometimes I'd skip social events or cut classes short to go back and lock myself in my room for multiple sessions. This just meant I wouldn't get any action going forward - I'd be too anxious to talk to them, and then I'd get made fun of and I'd turn to porn and the cycle would repeat. It's my final year now and I realise now I have a clear case of PIED, and I noticed on previous unsuccessful attempts to reboot my general anxiety went down and I was able to focus better after the first week or so. My social skills are getting better, I'm working on my confidence, I'm learning to ignore the guys who make fun of me for my virginity - I've realised that there are many better things that define you as a person. Understanding this, I want to kick my addiction so I can have healthy relationships and be in a better mental state going forward. Hopefully this thread will keep me accountable and motivated. I'm aiming for a 90 day no PMO and will try to update it where I can.
