    Can you be more specific? What do you mean?

    Like have I ever watch a porno and been so moved by the plot that it made me cry? No. Definitely not.

    But, I do have a story for you. I was PMO’ing every day for about six years, until one night, after a binge I felt awful. Awful is an understatement. I don’t really know what it was. I had considered trying to quit on and off for several months before that, but never got far. Like two days. I didn’t take it very seriously. Maybe that feeling that night was hopelessness. I don’t know. But I did cry myself to sleep that night, and for the first time seriously tried quitting.

    that first streak was 12 days, and those 12 days were incredible.

    Then I found NoFap and was able to go even longer. I still slip sometimes, but I am such a better person than the guy that cried himself to sleep that night.

    My life is destroyed my my addiction and everyday i cries. When i see my friends having job i cry, when the get married i cry, when they spend money and have money i cry, when i borrow money from them and cant give back on time i cry. When the pmo again and again destroy my life i cry. Even when writing this i can see some small drops.

    I have been there. When I got to that place, I decided I had to quit.

    More so to the enslavement of MO, where P seems to just be an appendage of MO, even though P is such an abuse in itself: abuse against oneself, abuse of the people in the porn, destruction of human society, degradation of human bodies, which were otherwise created as good and to serve goodness.

    Yeah, sometimes the pressure of trying to quit is overwhelming and it's all got too much. Crying's not a bad thing in that situation though. It's like resetting yourself and starting to move forward again.

    I believe that my porn addiction has caused me to not seek out a relationship in the past. And there have been times where I have cried about being alone and not having a family. So I guess you could say I have cried because of porn.

    Since I have made my best effort to quit PMO I have noticed I am in a better mood and more optimistic about the future.

    I have never cried but because I don't usually cry. When I am sad or angry about something, in this case not being able to quit, i just feel extremely apathic and just not happy. It is still an awful feeling however.

    I never cried specifically over porn itself.
    But, when my porn habit helped destroy my marriage I cried like a toddler for months.

    Jeez.. just came here for guidance now with a tear or two running and this topic is the headliner. If this isn't a direct message that I need to get my stuff together, I am not sure what is.

    I am in my longest streak right now; 35 days of no masturbation and porn. I remember being extremely upset, angry, on the verge of crying after my relapses and binges. But I know definitely that I cried yesterday. I am not sure if it is directly because of porn, but I suppose porn has a role in it. I was exercising yesterday while listening to music, and I was in this euphoric mood. I was really enjoying the experience of exercise, and music. I switched to listening to nature sounds: rain and thunder. All of a sudden, I was in tears. I can't really tell what caused it, but the emotions were a mixture of intense nostalgia, longing, and satisfaction. I suppose my brain started to experience daily activities much more intensely after I have cut its dopamine boost of porn and PMO. I experienced exercise and music much more intensely I suppose. But why tears when listening to thunder and rain? This is maybe because my deepest self, my inner self still connected to nature experienced this nostalgia of nature when it heard the sounds of nature. After all these years of burying it under the artificial stimulus of porn, it started to manifest itself in the end.
     
  16. Yes, more times than I would like to admit. I've been suicidal because of it too. It hurts so much for me to think back on my life and realize just how badly I've been damaged by porn, I can't even put it into words.

    sometimes i just feel hopeless after watching porn. not to long ago i cried after watching porn because the taught of how many years i have wasted my life on porn and how much porn is been a part of my childhood. i started watching when i was 10 now i am 16
     
  18. I think how much you cry depends a little bit on what type you are. But that you cry at some point is certainly a good sign. I think for a long time I was too much estranged, consumed by it, numbed. Then I learned about porn addiction and realized my problem and worked out what was my situation and what actually had happened in the past years. Then I cried - often.

    Today I'm so used to the addiction as well as the whole nofap / recovery buisness that I don't cry anymore.

    In a nutshell:
    If something in your life is broken it's healthy to have a strong emotion. If you have such an emotion it's natural to cry. Only if you cry about insignificant things or can't stop crying it won't help any longer.

  19. I hope you have someone hugs you and dries your tears now and then. We also can try it here to hug you and dry your tears, even on an anonymous online forum it is possible!

    I think, maybe it's time for you to refrain your situation. Maybe you have other things that your friends don't have. Maybe you can be happy still, despite not having this or that?
