    Hey guys, IDK how many people would read this but here goes.
    I am a 21 years old, male who has been using porn since forever. I do not recall when i started but it is obviously no less than 7-8 years. There have also been phases in the beginning where I was bewildered about my sexual orientation so I was quite dependent on porn to to actually realise, such a shame that I later realised there were other hints as well pointing out that I was a homesexual. however, being very unaware about the existence of other homesexuals (Yes, we aren't taught sex ed here and I was not aware about dating sites), I started using PM as stress buster for the other issues in my life (which were not related to problem but general academic and family life) as well as supposing that it is the only way for mw to find any kind of sexual pleasure. so before I actually started using dating sites and became sexually active, I was already dependent on porn. long story short, after i came to know about the harmful affects of porn, I supposed I am showing symptoms of PIED and it is also making me struggle with my recovery from depression and anxiety despite visiting a counsellor. So I want to quit porn so as to adapt to a better lifestyle, better my mental health and enhance my sexual experience. My parameters would be porn for now and I started out yesterday so still on day 1 while posting it. I am going step by step after finding the guide after spending hours on the forum.
    So wish me luck and all the best to others out there who are on the same journey!

    Please, start studying carefully what's happening in your mind > https://oceanrecoverycentre.com/2016/07/the-ultimate-guide-to-overcoming-internet-porn-addiction/

    First time without porn will be stressful , but if you resist , in some months you will feel reborn.

    If the first times a person relapse easly, it's okay.
    The streaks becomes even longer , day by day.
    Don't porn anymore, it's better to struggle and at the last to relapse than to look at porn.
    No more instagram pictures of models. No more erotic imagines , erotic stories or erotic asmr.
    If you experience ''flatline'' and low libido , resist.

    We should improve in all area of our life, just being dissatisfied or stressed makes us relapse.

    An effective weapon to overcome urges and thoughts : mindfulness.
    The brain will try to win you and to get some triggers for the seek of dopamine. Resist
