    Well, my experience with girls is also nowhere near I'd like it to be and it sucks. I did have some episodes, though. We are mostly f**ked over by our anxiety and/or being 'nice guys'. I found myself to be more outgoing towards girls the longer I abstained from PMO.

    It does get better the longer you are away from it. Your mind is clearer without the constant urge to go back to it. It especially gets better when you keep a record and a focus group or an addiction recovery meeting you can go to.

    Thanks Anonymouse, I hope it does get better because I'm scared that even if I do quit this, nothing is going to change for me. Even if that's the case, I will still have to work on it myself. I'd find it difficult to go to a recovery group without my parents finding out unfortunately, and for their sakes, I wouldn't want them to know that I never stopped watching it after they caught me. However, I think recording my progress is a good start.

    Impressive goal btw :)

    Yeah a daily record is great, it's helped me a lot :) I understand the whole not letting your parents know situation. I found that I could only ever confide in my dad when I lived at home but now that I have the focus group it's much easier. It's good to have a least one person to talk to in real life too, whether it's a parent, a trusted friend, a spouse or loved one, a church leader or councilor, or even over the phone with an addiction hotline (i've never used the phone thing but I've heard it works as well). It's definitely a definitive decision to make to start to confide in someone in real life but it works wonders if it's the right person. Thanks too, good job on getting so far for your goal as well, keep up the good work :)
