Using Porn to Stop Feeling Bad, Please, stop this. You need to stop medicating yourself with porn every time you feel pain and discomfort. This is ignorance of the reality of life. Stress, depression, frustration, hangovers, boredom, injuries, physical pain, anxiety, embarrassment. Do you know what they are? Do you know what they’re called? They’re called LIFE. Do not run away from life. Do not run away from reality. We will never become happy if we keep doing this. All these bad feelings are temporary. Boredom, stress, hangovers, feeling down. They will all pass. If we keep taking refuge in porn and running away from pain and discomfort then we will never be able to grow as persons and become real men. We need to break out of this cycle. Or at the very least try to. Otherwise, what are you going to do when things get tough in life? Hide in your room? Become depressed? What are you going to do when you realize that hitting on girls brings up a lot of anxiety and nervousness? Runaway? Make excuses?. Don't do this and I can guarantee 100% success in this journey.
