    Hi Everybody,

    I just wanted to take some time to share my story quickly about overcoming a porn addiction.

    Around this time last year I restarted a journey I have tried to accomplish many times before. I gave up porn for good and today it has been a full year since my last visit to a porn site. I used to watch porn from high school up until college. I didn’t realize I was addicted to it until I tried to give up my habit. Throughout the time in college, I struggled very often with overcoming this addiction. I tried time and time again to never successfully make it as far as I have today. However, through this struggle I was resilient and never gave up on what I wanted to remove from my life. I can today say that the times before I made it this far in my journey were not easy, however, I can give you hope that the longer you abstain the easier it becomes. When I was watching porn, I was very lonely, depressed, angry, bitter and anxious. However since I have been free from porn for a full year, I noticed that these feelings have slowed disappeared and are not as heavy as they once were. Ever since becoming porn free, I feel happy, content and hopeful for my future. I have never been a guy that fit in with my peers and I have never been a guy that has gotten to go out with a girl before. However since I have quit watching porn, I am now regaining hope that I can know what it’s like to have a girlfriend or even a group of friends to hang out with. Without watching porn for this long, I am noticing that I am getting more attention from girls and the people that I work with started to invite me places with them. I am not exactly where I want to be in life, however, I am now doing well in my job and content with the things that I have. I am not as successful or popular as some of the other people that I know but as each day passes and I abstain from porn, I am realizing that I am growing and becoming a better person. What I find helpful to me is that instead of spending my time looking at porn, I am going to use my time to do things that allow me to become a better person. For example: reading more books, playing the guitar and getting more exercise. Although that I struggle early on, I believe that if you persevere through the hard times anybody can be able to overcome this addiction. I hope that sharing my story helps. I wish you guys the best in your journey and may you get to know what it’s like to be porn free.

    Don't you think 365 days is so long to say that I am addiction free? I really want to know when can we say we have quitted porn addiction. In my opinion, this period should be 3 months.
    At this time, I am porn addicted. About once a week, I watch porn or do masturbate.
    Now, I am amazed will it take me 365 days to quit porn. I think I only need to break the chain of week.
    Forgetting porn addiction for always and move ahead in the life is the 100% solution of porn addiction.
