    I don't feel 100% cured of PIED, but I feel like I am almost there. But I still feel like I am addicted to porn and artificial sexual stimulation.

    The only reason I overall do well at staying away from it is because how much I have restricted my access to porn and artificial sexual stimulation.

    But the thing is if PIED is nearly cured or cured, then this must mean there has been very significant brain changes, if you have went from having PIED to not having PIED anymore, or nearly not having PIED anymore. So I guess what I am wondering is if there has been as much brain changes as this then why would porn addiction still remain?

    Once a habit always a habit I don't want to sound too pessimistic.Addictions are only bad habits.You have used porn to deal with something in your life.The thing is that you always will be addicted but the goal is to replace porn with some other good habit.For example if you feel bored you can read books etc.I know guys who where pmo free for a longtime but still relapsed. Although the more you are PMO free your life will be better and your withdrawal symptoms will eventually disappear.
    Stay strong

    Same as me. I think we need to work on replacement strategies.
