    It’s been a few years now. Proof that you really can quit cold turkey and be successful.

    What a well detailed account. I am on day 181. I can attest to so much you’ve said. You also give me hope for the future. You expressed often feeling like an actor pretending to be normal to those around you.. and that is what I have done all my life. Porn has robbed me of the joy of experiencing life itself. But I am healing, and I’m hopeful. And yes, the term addict in recovery is a good one. That reenforces that I should never let my guard down. Thank you for taking the time to create this post.

    I'm not going to get into the debate if masturbating is okay or not. But I know these important truths...

    1. The potential to return to addictive behavior will always be in our brains. Not only are parts of the circuitry there, but it's a familiar way of dealing with stress, anxiety, or depression.
    2. The key to long term success is to reduce the amount of time we think about sex. We're medicating ourselves when we think about sex. We think about sex when we masturbate. So masturbating is a slippery slope that can lead to a relapse because the images in our head that we use to masturbate can become stale. That can lead to frustration and motivate us to seek out fresh material.
    3. If someone has broken free, then there's no need to return to anything close to that destructive behavior. Try to satisfy any sexual needs in a safe, committed relationship.
