Hello, all, I've been trying to do nofap for a few years now. Most I've ever gone is 2 weeks. I started watching porn when I was 10. Realised a few years ago that it isn't good for you and how pmo has ruined me. There's no way to have a healthy life with pmo. I've read quite a few posts anonymously, but I decided to create an account, make a post and see what it's like. Besides, I would like to get some thoughts and opinions on the following issue. Do you guys believe that in order to beat an addiction you have to avoid it completely? In this case avoid porn completely (I also waste way too much time on youtube)? I know this might seem really stupid and maybe you should just do whatever gets the job done. However, I'm trying to come up with a specific plan for recovery, and I can't make up my mind. If I watch porn, my brain releases loads of dopamine, and even if I stop watching - porn is on my mind all the time. If I try to watch a little bit of youtube, I often go on a binge. However, at the same time I feel like blocking the porn or the youtube videos wouldn't actually be me beating the addiction. Cause then in the future, for example, if I happen to see some sexual content somewhere, I will immediately get the urge to mo. Or will I perhaps not be so easily controlled by my emotions after a certain amount of time of abstaining from all these addictions? What do you all think? Should a person completely cut out any exposure to porn and whatever other content their addicted to or limit it to some degree?
