    Today I will not use porn because...I've been spontaneously smiling to myself...I feel more whole, like I have more integrity. I just feel more secure. I know PMO deprives me of that gentle, beautiful feeling.

    Today I will not use porn, because I am better than it. Better than the urges, and better than the old me.

    Self-affirmations can be destructive if you don't believe them/don't know how to use them well.

    This is a good affirmation anyway: Today I will not to gain X benefit

    Today I will not use porn because I want increase my dopamine receptors sensitivity and enjoy much more in life/

    Don't write about problems on your affirmations.

    PMO is bad, it makes you feel bad, it exhausts you and you feel bad afterwards. Living without it is the right way to live. I am glad I started again!

    Alcohol was always a trigger for me to MO. I've been sober for over a week. I'm pretty sure it's just general boredom that creeps and the urges start. Today I will fill my downtime with constructive things to do other than M.

    That is not true, at most they'll be ineffective, not destructive.

    A good affirmation does not focus on the negative, only the positive. If you say to yourself "I will not use porn, I will not use porn, I will not use porn", you'll end up using porn because you're focusing so much on it.

    This thread has many "I will not use porn because ...." in it which is better because you're pivoting to what you want instead. Plus as this is a group effort and we all feed off each others positivity there's a huge benefit there.

    Like you have

    It would be better just to say "Today I will focus on increasing my dopamine receptors sensitivity and enjoy much more in life".

    Ultimately it would be best to say "Today I will focus on enjoying more in my life and when I feel <whatever makes you want to look at p> I will <do what you want instead>. That is very specific which is better and provides a system that will replace the current negative habit.

    Take care.
