    Understand why you want porn. Change it. Then there's no need to hide. Porn will catch up with you someday anyway. Whether it's through a movie, or an ad, or just a "weak moment". Don't run from the problem, fix it.

    100% this. Running from it will likely make the urges/cravings worse .

    I'm often alone, but the real problem is being bored or stressed. If I manage to stay busy usually I'm fine. When it comes to stress, the best option is to talk/chat with somebody.

    It sort of boils down to whether the cost of P in your life is worth it or not. If not, then you have to realize internally it doesn't matter where you are, or what the situation is - the truth does not change. The fact that some contexts are more P-friendly than others needs to be irrelevant in your mind and heart. The difference here is making a 99% decision vs. a 100% decision. In the former, there's wiggle room, which means the door is cracked open depending on the situation. In the latter, it simply doesn't matter, whether you're at a concert, in a library, in a plane at 30,000 ft., or home by yourself. Knowing deeply within your own being that P has zero value to you, zero purpose in your life, can make ANY situation tolerable, they all become the same. That is freedom.

    You got this bro, You have to realize your mind is your enemy. Your mind has wired itself in a different way in order that it may seek out porn. You need to realize that you are in control not your mind. You need to stand up and take the driver's seat, fuck porn. bro you will find yourself 10 years from now still struggling with this addiction if you don't stop listening to your brain. When it gets too hard go outside. Go get coffee do anything. because your enemy is inside you Forget the past. That is never coming back all you have is right now. You can do this. I know you will succeed be practical and be aware

    Pray to the Universe, God, Higher energy that you want help. I did, and I am alone all the time in my room with a laptop and mobile and did 36 days so far without any porn protection. I used to watch porn 5 hours a day and jerk of 2-3x a day.

    Dude won't go 2 days without watching porn. Porn thrives on fear. The more you are worried about watching porn, the more you are likely to watch it.

    Best chance is getting someone over to stay with you. YOU CAN'T RESIST PORN. you can only set up blockers and the best is to be in the mist of people.

    Speaking from my experience:

    - Pray to Christ and ask Him for help, for strenght one day at a time, each morning for His grace to stay away from this for the whole day. I am aware that by my own strenghs I cannot do this. I need Him,
