    It's going to be 30 days without MO. One thing I found without MO seeing porn doesn't have that much power. Today I watched 4 hours straight then I thought it's not exciting anymore and closed the computer. The problem is when there is too much work and stress, somehow I switch to seeing porn. It will be second time in 10 years I have abstained from MO.
    Leaving MO made me feel stronger, more confident. But I can't stop looking porn no matter how hard I try. I have porn blockers I disable them and watch it. One thing I found after looking so many hours of porn that it's just pixel and I don't jerk now. But still can't stop looking at it. Please any advice mainly for stop looking it. I can't leave computer because most of my work is on computer due to lockdown.
    The only thing I want to control is now stop looking at Porn.

    I don't think MO by itself is helpful - it almost defeats the purpose, you have to go full on giving up PMO. It is very difficult, but the best things in life come from great difficulty and effort. If you have to work on your computer, I recommend placing your workplace in a spot of accountability - some spot where somebody else in your household/living can see what you're doing on your computer at any random time. Don't allow yourself to move your computer from this spot or into a spot where nobody else can see what you're doing.

    Stay strong, you can do this!

    Thanks that's a good advice. I was thinking to move to a different room, where no one can be around but after reading this I changed my decision. I guess if I keep my monitors so anyone can see it. That way I will be able to stop looking at porn. Yes I know seeing porn is bad, that's why I want to get rid of it completely.

    instead of MO you should have been doing the opposite- refrain from porn and masturbate when you need and then slowly leave all three

  5. I think you should switch it up, my man, and develop a new recovery plan for yourself which allows for the occasional emergency wank.

    Pornography is a supranormal stimulus and is not found in nature, whereas your body is constantly producing semen and masturbation is the pressure valve. I'm not saying masturbation is "natural," but neither is it unnatural, it is simply a tool in the art of life.
     
  6. Get up earlier, go to bed earlier. Focus on building new healthy habits. No big deal if you relapse. If you keep getting better every time then eventually you'll find success.

    It's been more than 10 years I have tried so many different techniques. Leaving MO is more powerful I can guarantee the reason is no matter how much you want to M or O just don't. What happen is the mind create more stronger neural pathways if you M and O because of the pleasure reward. If you see porn the brain will release dopamine but that amount is less compared to M and O. So it's easier to leave PMO if you leave any one of it. Together they 3 are stronger. I know seeing porn is bad and it fucks the brain. That's why I am here still fighting and controlling my urges.

    One more thing I want to add is for guys leaving PMO is more difficult the reason is our biology. For women getting orgasm is not as easy as man. We just need to jerk and there goes orgasm which create so strong reward that we do that again. So definitely leaving MO is helpful. All I want is to stop seeing porn. So still need more advice for it.

    sorry i can't think this much about an addiction
    i strongly suggest leaving all three, i can't see why you choose to watch the one thing every single person here wants to quit.

    I never said I choose to watch porn. I said it's very difficult for me to stop watching it. I also said seeing porn is bad and it fucks the brain. So why would I choose seeing it.
