Hello everybody, I think I'm going to start journaling on here when I can. I have been keeping a physical journal for the past few months but need another outlet which can give me additional support. I am currently 24 years old and my porn problem is really severe. I have a really hard time going more than 3 or 4 days without porn or even looking at sexy pictures. I've been watching porn since I was around 13 years old or so, but it hadn't really been a problem since I was 17-18 years old and nearing my graduation from high school, in which I started to become really depressed, unable to control my emotions, and started acting out. Since then, my life has spiraled out of control and I didn't even know it was porn until maybe 3 or 4 years ago as I didn't think porn could be addictive or that I had a problem. Right now my best streak is a week in the past year and a half when I have really been starting to try and combat this problem. I have sexual fantasies frequently and feel myself disconnected from the world. I feel hopeless but determined to get my life back, or at least make a new one for myself. Current steps I've been taking: 1) Getting out of my room as much as possible: go to gym, store, hangout with friends...anything to get out of my room which is where all the problems take place. 2) Keep my phone away from me unless I absolutely need to use it or I need to contact my friends. (I have been failing with keeping this rule as I always find the need to look up something quick or check a text, I wander in my room with it, and then PMO occurs). I normally keep my phone in my downstairs pantry which is the furthest point in my house away from my room. 3) Try to do things productive that will help my career. I graduated from college for electrical engineering technology a couple years ago, but I didn't have a vehicle yet to get to work. I currently work in an office as a phone representative in which I just got a vehicle a couple months ago after saving up. I try to go on my laptop downstairs to teach myself some programming, but can't seem to concentrate for that long and give up after only an hour or so. My attention span has definitely shrunk since watching porn and I get extreme daytime fatigue. I feel like I'm behind my graduating class and behind in life. 4) Changed my diet. Been working on this for the last year or so in which I cut out most sugary drinks except milk, started getting fresh food and cooking more instead of eating out of a bag. I've been eating more as well to help me gain weight as I'm trying to bulk up in conjunction with going to the gym. 5) Try to get at least 7 hours of sleep. This is hard at times as if I masturbate late at night my mind needs time to simmer down. 6) Cut down on video games. Been cutting down the past month. I used to play for most of my free time, but try not to play for more than an hour a day if I do at all. I know I can't engage in escapist activities for long. 7) Trying to correct my posture. I have had terrible posture for years, probably due to the fact I'm always slouched over watching porn, playing video games, lying down. Doing back exercises at the gym and doing neck exercises are helping, but the rounded shoulders and nerd neck are still there. There might be a couple other points, but for the sake of the introduction and not writing an essay I will leave it at that. Any thoughts, advice, or suggestions are greatly appreciated! I hope to post more about what has happened specifically over the past few years, but for now I just need to anchor myself right here for now.
