    Have been watching porn ever since I was 11. I am now 21 and need to get rid of this addiction because it's holding me back in my life. I have been trying NoFap since the end of June and have managed to get a couple streaks of 16 days and 9 days, but I always end up failing. I have a major problem with edging and looking at sfw photos of pornstars, which almost always ends up leading to PMO. I want to completely cut porn out of my life, is there any tips from people who have managed to do so or are trying? Also if anyone on here needs an accountability partner I would love to help (in US).

    Hey mate, my best streak is 120 days without PMO. You stop craving and thinking about P after Day 30. Every now and again you're tempted but as long as you don't look a P websites/photos/etc usually you won't be tempted to relapse. MO isn't as enjoyable with P. When or if you eventually go back to P then you easily get hooked after relapsing 1-3 times.
    If it makes you feel better since winter arrived I haven't been able to get passed Day 14.
    It definitely gets easier once you get passed Day 30.
    Just focus on your triggers and replace them with something else. Easier said than done as PMO is super addictive.
    You can do it if you want too but if you don't want to you will keep giving into temptation like I am atm :p
    I do feel ashamed, annoyed, unmotivated by going back to old habits. I have a real issue atm with a real strong desire for hedonism caused by not being able to reach all my goals in my 120 Day NoFap journey. Essentially I gave up and went backwards.

    Thanks man for the reply. I fell really badly into what you're describing (hedonism) before I was trying nofap and it's pretty soulcrushing. Takes the color out of life when porn is you're lifeline for pleasure, I found myself feeling like I wasn't enjoying nights out with friends as much as I used too because I was just pumping my brain with dopamine. Don't give up you got this man!
