Good Day everyone, So the introductory message that I got explained that it would be a good idea for me to introduce myself to you guys so that's what I'm doing. I am 30 years old and have been really struggling with compulsive porn viewing and masturbation off and on since I was about 18. I have also been dealing with other addictions during this period of time (Opiates, alcohol, gambling, and sex in general with both hookers and civilians) and for the most part these have been the issues that I have seen as having the most impact on my life and well-being. Lets just say it has been a cluster fuck of dysfunction. I am at this point 'clean' form all my other vices for a period of 6 months and 10 days but have realized that PMO has become my new obsession. I have always viewed it as the lesser evil of addictions but it appears to be wreaking similar havoc in my life. I guess it is just another way to get out of my own head. It has impacted my relations with others and women in particular as I find my anxiety levels spiking. I feel like I'm living in a constant haze of anhedonia and boredom with porn and jerking off being just about the only thing that I "enjoy". If i'm honest this has been a problem in my life for a long time but it has just been overshadowed by other issues. Now that it is front and center I cannot help but face it for what it is, an addiction like any other. I am abstaining from sex and relationships for a period of 1 year as part of my recovery from drugs and alcohol so I intend going for an initial hard reboot of 3 months. I'm looking forward to getting well and getting to know everybody and any advice or guidance would be greatly appreciated!
