    PMO made me feel bad about myself during college when I needed all the self confidence I could muster to do my best.

    Mental health issues. Such as social anxiety and negative thinking. Porn-induced social anxiety was a huge problem in my life. I would feel uncomfortable going to social settings. There were also days, when I was so embarrassed that I had relapsed to porn that I wouldn’t go outside.

    Stay away from internet porn at all costs. Internet porn is a hardcore drug that is free to consume with no limits.

    It robbed me of my natural sexuality. That might sound odd but my addiction to porn made me so confused about my own sexuality. I became completely lost and to this day I still feel lost. Porn has played a major role in turning me into an empty, hollowed-out, shell of a man.

    Eyesight, draining me, and Reason knows what more.

    Had to start the whole "Bracha" thing now, you'll stop fapping far easier, if you know it'll kill you to keep doing it 24/7.

    • Gave me erectile dysfunction
    • Desensitised me to real, normal sex and intimacy
    • Gave me weird kinks

    - Made my partner think I wasn’t attracted to him because I couldn’t maintain an erection
    - Distracted me time and time again when I should have been studying or working, leaving me to rush and get stressed when I had to complete things at the last minute

    I’m a virgin so I don’t know what sex feels like. Porn made me doubt myself, lack self esteem and self confidence because I feel like I watch too much. I’m insecure about myself as well.

    Good question. Thanks for such a simple, straightforward approach.

    I think the worst was robbing myself of time that could have been spent in positive ways, from being with friends and family to developing my mind and talents more, accomplishing more.

    I try to advise myself not to look back. The past is gone; you can’t get it back. Focus on what you can do in the future or, in fact, right this very moment. That’s where you can make a difference.

    Lost time. Worsened my avoidance tendency. Lost intimacy with my wife. Messed up dopamine cycle which led to serious anxiety issues. Jeez, writing that now is pretty eye-opening lol

  18. The times where I need to responsible, I'm not. Serious Peter Pan Syndrome type stuff, like I'm afraid to mature. Basically instead of being responsible I watch porn

    Fatigue, brain fog, perceiving women to be objects, demotivation, lack of confidence, pacified state to name some.
