    I am trying to make a real effort to quit porn. So far, I've made it a week.

    A week is already great progress, keep it up! :) And welcome!
    If you're new here, it's a good idea to also check the Accoubtability Partner section. Be warned that, as a woman, you're likely to get a lot of male attention, but please don't be discouraged. Not all intent is malicious, and there's great help to be found. Mods are doing a good job here.
    I wish you strength, and good luck! It's hard to open up to strangers, but finding someone that knows what you're going through and talking to them helps a lot.

    I'm glad I can remain anonymous on here. That makes it easier to talk about it to strangers. I definitely wouldn't be so open to talk about it otherwise.
    Anyway, I've found the man of my dreams and I want to end my habit for the sake of our relationship. He doesn't know about my problem, as it is a secret that I am not proud of. My relationship with him isn't quite a year old. I have been trying to quit porn for a long time now. I would rather my sexual experiences be with him exclusively when the time is right without any of that garbage in the back of my mind.

    So you’ve had a relationship with him about a year now? So what’s the state of your sexual relationship with him?

    Glad you are here.

    We are waiting to have sex, but have "fooled around" because, well... waiting is extremely difficult when you really like/love and are attracted to each other. He is 35 and I am 30. Both of us have had previous relationships where we didn't wait, and we want to focus on really developing a strong bond with each other before we go all the way.

    Btw, 12 days since porn. Only had the temptation twice, so that's good.

    I suggest you open up to him about it. It really is important for your partner to know about your addiction. It can be a tremendous aid and a powerful pillar of support. Also, it's only fair to him.

    Good for you. Build it on top of intimacy! You’ll live a much happier life. Also, as for fooling around, there is nothing wrong with that. It builds intimacy with a capital “I”. I love it. I know a man and wife who managed to do what you are doing for 7 years. Their marriage is stronger than any other I have witnessed in decades. You will be very glad you did.

    If you find yourself wanting to masturbate, reach out for help. Just come right out and say it because there is always somebody on here 24x7 that can walk you through a triggering event.
