Let me start by saying this is the hardest thing I've ever done. I'm 52 and been PMOing for 40 straight years every day. Quitting smoking was hard and quitting drinking was easy. This is brutally difficult. I the hope I can help someone else - Here is how I got to 30. Keep in mind I am a traditional Catholic. I have adopted 2 seemingly contradictory philosophies . 1) Stay Confessed -it may be difficult to find a serious spiritual director in this age of permissiveness disguised as "mercy" but keep searching until you find one who understands the nature of sin. Pray Constantly. The Anima Christe is incredibly powerful. So is devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Pornography is a demon and must be battled as such. 2) You are a dopamine addict. Stop pressing the button-PMO. Just stop. No great spiritual battle. This thread helped me immensely http://www.NoFap.com/forum/showthread.php?2402-Get-educated-get-tools-and-learn-to-love-withdrawals Now for the toolbox. 1- BLOCK EVERYTHING. K9 on the PC. I set restrictions no 17+ apps on ipad or iphone, no adult content, and I don't know any of the passwords. Yes its inconvenient sometimes because it blocks normal sites- like nofap on the ipad and iphone- but too bad. 2- Have an alternative activity. I have taken up playing the keyboards and I'm a golfer. Throw yourself headlong into these pursuits. Get up and do them whenever you are tempted. 3- Pray the Rosary, or just three Hail Marys . Purify your mind, ask for the grace to battle on. 4- Read a little book called "Searching for and Maintaining Peace" by Father Jacques Phillippe I have no super powers yet. I am less anxious and my golf game has improved greatly. There was 2 week period when I was losing my mind with anger on a level so high I almost got in 2 fist fights on the bike path here in NYC. I am mindbogglingly horny and a complete pervert still. No flatline, no "I see women as people"- nope, not a bit. I am here, 30 days later, I am here. Onward. Peace and God Bless and please pray for me.
