    Hi all,

    I am new here (obviously). I am a 46 year old male - and been using porn since I was a teenager. I am married and have always been fairly open and forthright about my sex drive with my wife. However, in the last few years my level of porn usage and types of porn has increased to the point where I am finally admitting it is a problem. I only recently stumbled across this concept of NoFap. So here I am.

    I started my reboot on 10/31/19 - twelve days ago. Porn & Masturbation

    I am currently focused on a reboot that includes just Porn and Masturbation. I haven't come out to my wife that I have this problem - although she knows that I masturbate to porn, we haven't discussed how much of a problem it has become for me. There are other issues that had developed previously because of my increased level of porn usage that we have already worked through. I don't want to add another thing for her to be concerned about. So, at this point, I am not rebooting on Orgasm as I would prefer to maintain a normal, healthy sexual relationship in our marriage.

    So that's it .. twelve days in. Thanks for your support.

    Welcome. I'm also married but my conditions are ejaculation ONLY inside my wife. Anything else goes. Amazing that you're on Day 12. I'll be catching up, so keep up the good work!

    Welcome @JerryB96, we’re glad you’re here. There’s no doubt that you can overcome this even though you’ve failed to do it alone in the past. We’ve all failed when we used to try and overcome it by ourselves. I’ve seen steady progress in my own recovery since joining NoFap almost a year ago (I’m working on overcoming Masturbation, I overcame my addiction to Porn 10 years ago).
