    Hello everyone,

    I am a 20-year-old guy trying to quit PMO for good. I have been addicted to pornography since I was 12 (when I discovered google on my family's PS3). In my early teen years, I would watch porn every day, make it my mission to check all the sites to see if any new content had been uploaded that was in "my type", and began trading my own content with users on Omegle and Kik. This was an everyday thing until I was nearly 16. I had a conversion to Christianity which has continued to change my life. I deleted all my downloaded content, closed my accounts on porn sites, and deleted my kik profile. Things were looking up, until I went back to porn the next week. It was only once, and I had gone a week without it, but I couldn't shake it completely. Since then, I've learned a lot about it. I've even become outspoken against it with my friends, presented research against it at my college (I'm a Psychology major), and have gone to therapy to gain further insight into my triggers. However, every couple of weeks, I relapse. This occurred again yesterday. I wanted to leave these things in the last decade, but nevertheless, I want to leave them now irrespective of the year. At one time, I went over 6 months without porn. I have never gone over 30 days with PMO together.

    I'm hoping that changes. If any of you are willing to walk beside me in this journey, I would be honored and thankful.

    -Emil

    Hey Emil. I discovered porn at the about same age [slightly younger]. Recently figured out its effects and have been trying to quit. I too have told my friends and talked openly about it, all of which has made me feel better. Yet, I relapsed after 9 days. I'm quittin' again. I'm with you. Let's go! Good luck! I don't really like streaks, i prefer to do things one day at a time, but yeah! it does feel good when you can say i quit for <days> long :D!
