    I have had a porn addiction since I was 12. It all started when I found the late night section on HBO. At first I watched it at random when I had the chance for a few years. I could still masturbate on my own without it. But then when I learned I could use it as a stimulant a few years later, I began to rely on it unknowingly. I grew up in a Christian home, and at the time I felt extremely guilty because of that. I thought it was a sin to explore sex on my own, masturbate, and watch porn. Eventually however, my faith changed. **I stopped identifying as a Christian in high school. I stopped thinking porn was bad for a minute from a Christian standpoint, but eventually I became numb to sexual images, and began searching for more extreme things. Things I promised myself I would never ever watch. I started to realize I was addicted at age 19 when I couldn’t bring myself to stop. I tried to search how to quit porn, but a lot of the articles focus on men and their experience with porn. A lot of them didn’t align with my experience as a woman. So I began to search women addicted to porn and how to overcome it. Unfortunately, a lot of the forums or articles for women mainly talk about porn addiction with religion being a large influence in the discussion. The articles usually have talking points along the lines of: It’s a sin, you aren’t serving God, you aren’t serving your husband, If you want to be closer to God, yadayadayada. It simply didn’t resonate with me. It’s distracting, and the advice is a mixture of fear mongering and some hocus pocus. I just wanted to know if there were any women out there who actually have practical advice on how to overcome porn addiction without bringing up religion. I have been clean for a month but I am feeling tempted today. I just want to know I’m not alone here. I know for a fact that there are so many women who watch porn, and who are addicted but are too ashamed to talk about it. I hope this can be a safe space for me to kick this habit.

    Welcome @angelasmith267, you have come to the right place. Do check out the Women in Reboot sub-forum where you will find lots of other women facing the same problems. Of course all the other sub-forums may prove useful too since lots of the problems we face are common to male and female porn addicts. Good luck!

    Sorry i didn't checked your profile, so I suggested to you as i did for many males , im sorry, mam.
    Welcome to the community,mam.
    I wish u must lead a new life without P&M.Avoid staying alone anywhere. When ever u get the temptation to watch P come out of ur room and stay with people and adopt a hobby as well.Don't spend too much time in bathrooms or toilets and always carry an interesting novel or book(which should not contain nudes or sex stories) with u to the bathroom.Don't use ur PC or lappy or mobile privately.Use those around people and install porn blockers on all ur personal devices.
    Im sorry for the wrong post before as i didnt checked your profile but now i realized my mistake.
    Im sorry,mam.
    All the best.Take a challenge of NoFAP for atleast 30 days and try to achieve it.After achieving it make it to 2 months then 3 then 4 and so on.Throw away the porn collection u had it with u.Control ur brain.
    All the best mam.
    Im really sorry.

    I love this, and it's not one I've seen recommended here before. My daughter's boy friend (they are in their mid-twenties) lives the motto "ABR: Always Be Reading", it's inspirational.

    Hi, Angela. I find myself in the exact same situation as you. Hope we can help each other to fight and win this P addiction. I don’t also wanna bring religion, cause after I overcome my situation, I want to keep masturbating in healthier ways, really connecting with myself with no other visual stimulation, mainly the ones that we know are so unreal and damaging to us and other women.
    Let’s keep fighting. Wish you the best <3
