    Last night I had hard urges for porn that wouldn't go away until I slept. When I woke up they were still there though & have stayed all day. I'm not sure how much longer I'm gonna last.

    I've tried to play videogames & went for a run but whenever my mind wanders it goes back to porn

    Hey man, don't feel too down. It ain't easy but it's worth it.

    Just to offer some advice as someone who's mind also wanders and has thoughts of porn daily, it's helped me to look into why it happens and how my brain has adapted to keep repeating the cycle. When I have these thoughts I make sure I recognise them as not something I want to think about, but something the reward cycle in my brain wants to think about and pursue, because it's been conditioned to do so.

    Hope this helps, good luck.

    So it's best so far. What did you do differently that let you go longer this time?

    Hello Daryn,

    maybe you could try this. Ask yourself two questions: 1. Why am I watching porn? 2. Why do I want to stop?
    It sounds cliché but if you really think about it and if you try to answer those questions, maybe you will see things more clearly. Identifying the "why" of the problem can help find a solution.
