    Hey guys I’ve been surrounded by sex and porn most of my life and I’m 22 years young. Porn has been apart of my life for about 10 years sadly! Porn has taken a toll on my mental health specially in the last 2-3 years with all the pain I’ve felt. I used it as in escape but I never considered the consequences. I use porn up to 3 times a day sometimes and never been able to sustain a streak of more than 2-3 days. I can see the effects it has caused in my social life also in personal relationships. I’ve always been that outgoing charismatic friend but now im nervous out in public, I’m suddenly afraid of eye contact and My anxiety has went into overdrive! When I approach women I shake like a dog when it’s wet and get all tongue-tied! Never really experienced these problems and IM VERY CONCERNED ABOUT MY MENTAL HEALTH. PORN IS MORE THAN AN ADDICTION I FEEL LIKE ITS HAS CONSUMED MY ENTIRE LIFE. IT HAS THIS EVERLASTING THIRST THAT WONT GO AWAY AND IM LOSING FAITH!

    I honestly do try to stop. I block sites off my iPhone. I delete my social apps but something always leads back. I try to find where I go wrong but i have this huge impulse/urge after a day or two without porn. And when I don’t give into the urge I can’t sleep or I can’t stand still. I would catch random erections at the worst possible times (work,school,events) it’s really embarrassing. I know that since porn has been apart of my life for so long that this journey won’t be easy. it won’t be a 3 month fix or 6 month fix it’s gonna take real time to get back into a normal life. I’ve acknowledged that part of the process already it feels like getting started is the hardest part.

    We are listening brother.

    Wish I could say more to help but I too am here for the same reasons.

    Maybe the one thing I can say is don't give up trying. Always strive to do what you think is the right thing.

    ---

    Start small. Start with with just one day. Then two days etc...

    Try the one week challenge.

    Another thing that helps is education. I mean educate your self WHY porn is so destructive.

    1. Pay attention to your thoughts.

    2. If a thought could lead to PMO, even if it seems fairly innocent at first, say to yourself this is a dangerous thought. Interrupt it before it leads you anywhere.

    3. Go back to step 1.

    You'll be fine man, we're all here because PMO has f*cked up our mental and physical health in some kind of way. You're not alone, I didn't consider the consequences either at first, let alone did I even know porn addiction was real which still infuriates me to this day but you just have to let go of the past and do the best that you can from this day forward. I'm almost 24 and have been pmoing for about 10 solid years. I won't give up..I know life has its ups and downs but you can do this man. Remember the pain to abstain. Best of luck, friend

    Try again, I feel you brother. I've been PMO-ing heavily since 2002. If you'll face symptoms, know that I'll face double the symptoms. We can do this... we want to live normally and we will.

    I'm right there with you man. I was using Covenant Eyes to block EVERYTHING (even google), but i work remotely and my company just recently upgraded the software that is not compatible with Covenant Eyes. So you and I are in the same boat. I've been addicted for 8 years (I'm 26 now).
