    Hello all ,

    During the course of my 50 year life I have had multiple addictions or bad habits. The only one I have been able to conquer is drinking (quit 20 years ago). Currently I am addicted to Dominatrix's,femdom porn, gambling. I also have gone through periods of frequenting asian massage parlors. It can be very exhausting. Any one else have multiple issues.

    Junk food. Might not sound much but I've tried quiting eating unhealthy foods many times over the last few years. I've noticed that it is my other go-to stress reliever.

    I'm prioritising nofap just now though.

    It sounds like you have had a lot to deal with. Best of luck my friend.

    I think professionals would recommend that you just work on 1 addiction or bad habit at a time.
    Conquer it (6 to 12 months).
    Then move on to the next concern.
    You successfully conquered drinking. What strategy did you apply? Use that as a template as you transition to
    more and more Success.

    With gambling … perhaps you could get the same 'high' or 'rush' by doing some other risky behavior?
    What about watching videos on sky diving...….. then perhaps doing jumps every 1 to 4 weeks (whatever works for you). This would give the 'rush' you enjoy. Also you can try: drag racing on a NHRA track..... auto crosses .... helicopter or plane flying lessons... martial arts … …. etc.
    Some activity related to your 'passion' or 'interest' would work great!
    You have many options to choose from :)

    Mate at different points I have had gambling, impulsive, PMO, escort addiction and everything in between. Currently in the last year I have PMO'd 23 times so an average of one day a fortnight. I've significantly tidied up my life by addressing my mental health issues and taking ownership of them

    Life is better without it. You can do it mate
