    I grew up in the 80s. I used to watch VHS porn, but it got worse when I got internet (dial-up) and even now, married with 2 daughters it is very tempting to sneak out of bed in the middle of the night and watch porn while masturbating.

    Yes, I think I have used it to escape from reality, anxiety, deceptions....

    I want to change today.

    Welcome to the forum. I too used to sneak out of bed to watch porn. I thought getting married and having access to unlimited sex would fix my problem. Unfortunately, our problem is not a sexual one... it's an emotional one.

    You've already uncovered some emotional triggers that cause you to seek out porn. Addicts use images to alter, medicate, sooth, numb, or escape from negative emotions. Quitting involves much more than just not watching porn. Those underlying issues need to be addressed or you will forever get sucked back in.

    Educate yourself and follow the path the rest of us are traveling and you will find success and make your married life a much happier one.

    Yes, to me Porn was just an escape. I noticed that getting bored was a trigger, so I am keeping myself very busy, the other thing I just started doing is daily exercise. This way I am releasing stress in a positive way. It has worked great so far :)

    Hi Johnny Rambo,
    I just joined here a few days ago. Similar weakness as you. Can't get enough porn/masturbation. Seems like every free moment is made for "me time".

    Good luck. I hope we can all help you better yourself.

    Eric
