    I'm twenty years old. This has been a problem for me my whole life.

    I can't go a single day. Not even one.

    I live at school, and when I'm at school It's not so bad. But whenever I go home I fall apart. I have 0 clue how to resist. I've got most porn websites blocked but it doesn't matter.

    How do I even go one day?

    You just got to resist. Just do it. A life without pmo is just so indescribably amazing. Pure bliss. Literally. No exaggeration. You just gotta commit and take the leap of faith. Just know that if you stay away from pmo. It’s worth all the while and you’ll be ok and get better.
  3. You have to learn to trade short-term discomfort for longer-term well-being. If this seems impossible, then remember this: pain is a great motivator. As porn addiction escalates, it is likely to bring more pain - be it emotional, psychological, or actual physical problems. At this point the desire to be free from the pain can inspire you go that first day, then to string a few days together, then to take on say the 7-day challange and continue on from there, etc. Take care friend, you do have the power to change things for the better.
  4. The desire has to be stronger than the pain and discomfort you will experience. If you lack strong desire, it's hopeless.
    Why is it a problem? Maybe it isn't. Weak and shallow reasons aren't going to convince you to willingly put yourself in great discomfort. The "how-to" is not as important as the "why". A famous quote by Nietzsche says: If you know why, you can live with any how.
