Day One Has to Start Somewhere

    I’m a 25 year veteran of PMO, long on excuses, short on any success at stopping. That means I’m not much good for advice on how to quit, but I can definitely give some perspective on what doesn’t work.

    I’ve struggled with internet porn addiction almost since the stuff even started back in the 90s or at least that’s when I became aware of it. The fact is, I’d been stuck on erotica for a long time, using the usual men’s magazines plus the occasional video, even going back to the old 8mm films. So it was always a problem, but having so much, so readily available online really accelerated my usage.

    I’m 73, retired, feel I’ve accomplished some good things in life, especially raising my kids successfully in spite of all the hours I lost online. But the days are starting to run into each other with my basically doing little more than surfing porn, or planning to, or fantasizing, and there has to be something better.

    I’m married to a lovely woman, and I fear that if I don’t change my behavior the relationship will simply lose much meaning to me, even fail.

    I have some ideas on thoughts to share, but I’m just getting familiar with the site, such as what to post where, etc., so for now I’ll just say I’m glad to be here and have appreciated some of the things I’ve read. Hope to hear from others.

    Thanks, everyone.

    Day One is Done.
