Do you guys feel like we can cure our addiction to porn by ourselves?

  1. Addiction are definitely much hard to kick alone. 12 step programs work so well not because of the belief in god, but because of the support group behind them.

  2. I don’t believe one can beat this addiction solely on their own. I tried that for years...I thought I’m smart and I’ve accomplished other goals, so it shouldn’t be a problem...

    Well, years later relapse after relapse after freaking relapse, here I am finally making progress but only after seeking some outside assistance from this site. Virtual help is better than none at all. I haven’t told anyone in person because I don’t want to burden my loved ones and I don’t have any objective people I’m comfortable enough to talk about these kinds of things with.

    Of course we’re all different but that’s my two cents. Let’s all try to push that 5% recovery rate higher. I don’t want to be here still when I’m 50 years old talking about relapsing and struggling.

    I don’t think it’s impossible but it’s a hell of a lot harder based on where I’m at now. Even being on here is better than not speaking to a physical person.

  4. Well, the only advice would be to take steps for a lifestyle overhaul and stick to it. It's not easy trying to build real life interactions, but it's worth it. Stay away from shortcuts and realize that nothing can be progressive if you never step out of your comfort zone. Also, don't get super high expectations which are unreal. Most people think that sex is gonna be the ultimate pleasure in a relationship and porn sells that dream quite well. In reality, the intimate moments when I was not physical at all, are some of the very best moments of mine on this planet of ours. A relationship is infinitely more than sex, so a correction in this outlook certainly helps the most.

    Yes please, I have successfully broken the chains of my porn and jerking off bondage. It’s been over 150 days without fapping and my sex life is tremendously great. I’ve learnt how to control my ejaculation during sex although not yet perfect but most importantly I’ve been able to give my girlfriend many orgasm through penetration. I’ve had 3 girls in the past but I failed to make them cum but thanks to nofap I’ve been able to prove my manhood‍♂️.
    So yes, you can kick out this addiction alone with the help of other victors on nofap and the benefits will be life changing
