Am I actually addicted or do I just have a bad habit?

    Let me start by saying that I definitely want to stop watching porn, otherwise I wouldn't be here.

    The only times I consume porn are at night before I go to sleep and/or right after I wake up. Porn isn't something I think about every moment of the day or anything like that, it's just something I wind up doing at those times (except for right now, because I'm here).

    Does anyone else have a similar experience and what did you do to try and break that pattern?

    Thanks and enjoy October

    Welcome
    Please, start studying carefully what's happening in your mind > https://oceanrecoverycentre.com/2016/07/the-ultimate-guide-to-overcoming-internet-porn-addiction/

    First time without porn will be stressful , but if you resist , in some months you will feel reborn.

    If the first times a person relapse easly, it's okay.
    The streaks becomes even longer , day by day.
    Don't porn anymore, it's better to struggle and at the last to relapse than to look at porn.
    No more instagram pictures of models. No more erotic imagines , erotic stories or erotic asmr.
    If you experience ''flatline'' and low libido , resist.

    We should improve in all area of our life, just being dissatisfied or stressed makes us relapse.

    An effective weapon to overcome urges and thoughts : mindfulness.
    The brain will try to win you and to get some triggers for the seek of dopamine. Resist

    Replace the old habit with a new one , like read at bed and put away every electronic devices
     
  3. The way porn works is that it is an addiction. Please don't take this as a bad thing though or think you are cursed though; it is ok, you can overcome this, and in this day and age, almost everyone is addicted, even if they don't realize it. But given by your description, seems like you are in the early stage, so be grateful that you can pull yourself out before it got worst.
