To add real quick before I begin, there are not quick fixes and no shortcuts on this journey. If you are looking for a quick post to help, then maybe you aren't truly ready to quit. That may be harsh, but to help with this addiction harsh truth needs to be heard. I tend to ramble but to those that stick with it, I hope it helps. Also, ask me any questions you may have. I have not been on this site in a long time, forgot my username actually. This doesn't quite fit the success story section because it isn't 30+ days. I am at 4 days but been several since I have PMO'd. I count any P as starting over, although I know it doesn't erase my progress. I also know that viewing it for hours without O can be just as damaging if not more than full PMO, or as some people say a full relapse. I wanted to write to the few or many who are struggling to go a few days and not relapse, watching P or full PMO, because that was me. Sometime the success stories start with how they know the first couple weeks are the hardest, or I haven't been on a long streak just 30 days and they all say that is a really short time. When I read my thought was always that i wish I could even get to 2 weeks or a month. I have done a lot of back on forth or always refining what I am doing to stop watching porn. Here lately I have figured something out because of sex with my wife. Let me explain a little. A lot of people say that if they had a wife or gf or partner of some sort they would have no problem, but that isn't how an addiction works. Logical and addiction don't mix, that craving for a dopamine rush hits both single people and people in a relationship the same. For a years now, at least early 2012, I have had fears here and there of sex because I didn't know if it would be able to preform or not. You may have shame when you relapse but you have no idea when it is with a partner. My wife would look at me and ask why do I not excite you, and she would come to the assumption that she wasn't attractive to me. She didn't understand how wrong she was about that, I find her extremely attractive. But actions speak a lot louder than words. Here lately I haven't been afraid of sex at all and I am responding even when I have no want or need of sex at the moment, which would have never happened in the past. Would have been having sex 3-4 times a week. Which she is extremely happy about and so am I. Mainly that I can have sex and not have the constant fear of please don't go soft please don't go soft. I would also make up all kinds of excuses not to have sex as well, and remember this has gone on for years. I have had quite a few streaks of 4-5 days now, ending when I look at porn even if it is for 5 minutes. But when it happens I jump right off and reset my counter. I'm not upset about it because it wasn't long. But I assess what happened and how to stop that next time around. So to get to my actual point, I work on a computer all day in an office by myself, so I have freedom to do what I want. So, for the longest time I always tried to avoid porn, or do things so that I can avoid porn. That was my mistake, if you try to do something to avoid porn, ultimately you aren't really working towards anything except not watching porn. I have to watch the market and I used to stand up away from the computer and watch it. I thought okay if I am away from the computer I won't touch it. Well, whenever I sat down I would wonder online and eventually end up on back on porn. Well at some point I started to focus myself on learning charts and different moves from the market instead of watching the market to learn, but mainly avoid porn. My interest in what I was doing started going up so sitting down didn't matter, because my interest in what I was doing mattered more. So my point to all this is find a passion or maybe it is your job. Find a reason to soar in that area. Don't try to do something to avoid porn, find a reason to do better in that activity. And if you aren't happy with where you are in your job, come up with a way to find a better one or find ways to become an entrepreneur. If you don't have a passion, find one. And put energy and fire behind it, but not to avoid porn, to become awesome and do awesome things at that passion or hobby. So if you have stayed with me this long I thank you and ask me if you have any questions.
