    I find that weed in and for itself has no impact (neither good nor bad) on recovery from porn addiction. However, if you often smoked weed and watched porn at the same time, getting high is most likely going to act as a trigger, meaning when you get high with no intentions of watching porn, you'll still find yourself experiencing mad urges to watch porn shortly after. Fighting off urges is difficult as is, but fighting off urges while being high? That's a whole different animal.

    So, I would advise to either stay off weed for a while too or only smoke when you are in a group setting.

    I found it helpful to drop them both. For me, weed can cause my focus to meander in many directions... Helps to keep the path straight and narrow, at least in the first phase of dropping a shite habit. I agree with IR254 above, maybe moderate to only smoking with friends.

    It is best to stop smoking weed as it lowers your resistence and you are more likely to give in to urges if you have smoked it

    I never smoke weed. But my question is if I have an urge to jerk off could I smoke weed so I don't relapse?

    That will not work, mate. Weed doesn't exactly increase your willpower, especially if you are not used to weed.

    This might be right in some circumstances, but not always.

    This however, is simply wrong.

    Well, yea you'll get high if you smoke weed and that will most likely make you sleepy after a while, but it's not like you are gonna fall asleep right away and it's also not gonna help you fight off urges. That's just not how weed works. Weed is something you use here and there to chill out and relax, have fun, be happy and think about things. Weed can heighten your awareness of yourself and your surroundings and can help you get deeper insights in yourself and the world, but weed is not gonna increase your willpower. So, if you have no experience with weed I do not recommend to use it just for the sake of sleeping. Also, if you want to try it, you should do it properly and in a safe environment. Try a small amount with friends and see how you react first. Weed can have different effects on different people, and it's also important what strain you smoke and how much THC is in it. All of that is important and if you have never tried it, it can lead to an unpleasant experience or maybe even a horror trip. So, make sure you have a good understanding what you are using and how it effects you. Although weed isn't really dangerous in the sense that it can kill you (it can't), it still is a psychoactive substance and should be treated accordingly.

    I'm currently not smoking weed after being a long time daily smoker. For me I think stopping weed was necessary because I used to get high and jerk off. Weed intensifies things so it made stuff feel more intense, but that's no good when you're trying to quit an addiction.

    I agree that it's best to stay away from it, unless you're in a group setting. But even then, you might make plans to get some of your own afterwards. Oftentimes when I'd been away from weed for a while and then went back to it, it always seemed to start off in a group setting and then I'd just want to keep it going.

    So yeah, right now I've been off of weed for a month and a half. I've been reading a lot more, putting more time in to my recovery (albeit without the results I want), and even spending more time learning new dishes to cook. Overall I think taking time away from it has been positive, and if you're not someone who has smoked much before, i'm not sure starting it up now would be good. But who knows, I guess everyone is different. This is just my experience.

    Well you guys destroyed my plan haha. I was thinking about it. Like when im about to jerk off to go outside hause and smoke some weed. And that then I'm to high to feel horny. But if is not like that I'm not going to do that.
    And good luck on yours path to stop smoking. I also think its not that good. But I was thinking to use that in my advantage. But well...

    Idk I think some of these opinions are biased between people for weed and against weed. Personally I am an avid pothead but it was never like the correlation/causation of my addiction to PMO. I started PMO long before I got high for the first time. Rather, I added weed to the already present addiction to make it more chaotic. Currently i have enough self control so that even when im high (and h*rny) Im not necessarily ready to pmo. I admit there the thought does pass but its not overwhelming.

    now obviously we know smoking weed gives u a feeling of euphoria and that alone is going to impact your dopamine receptors if not used in moderation. Personally in my case there was a point where i would religiously get high + fap which put me further down the rabbit hole of addiction. I plan on never watching porn ever again in my life but I don’t necessary want to give up weed, I just want to learn more self control. That being said I would like to go +90 days no pmo and no weed while im at it too, and after the 90 days I want to continue no pmo unless the O is from sex with a partner, and only stick to weed in social settings.
