    Since I was 13 .. Im 45 now.

    All it takes is an urge, opening up youtube and searching for a few keywords. Yesterday I broke a 10 day streak.

    My wife has always had issues with me looking at porn, and I have always lied and hidden this. I am sure my ED is caused from excessive PMO.

    For the first time, I felt a NEED to stop. Not for my wife but for myself. Everything was going good until Sunday night the urges were the worst they had been, I gave in yesterday.

    Today has been tough ... but discovered the Emergency button.

    Welcome
    Please, start studying carefully what's happening in your mind > https://oceanrecoverycentre.com/2016/07/the-ultimate-guide-to-overcoming-internet-porn-addiction/

    First time without porn will be stressful , but if you resist , in some months you will feel reborn.

    If the first times a person relapse easly, it's okay.
    The streaks becomes even longer , day by day.
    Don't porn anymore, it's better to struggle and at the last to relapse than to look at porn.
    No more instagram pictures of models. No more erotic imagines , erotic stories or erotic asmr.
    If you experience ''flatline'' and low libido , resist.

    An effective weapon to overcome urges and thoughts : mindfulness.
    The brain will try to win you and to get some triggers for the seek of dopamine. Resist

    Glad you said you're doing this for yourself, i
    You doing it for yourself because you realize you need to change than having a wife nag you to death about it will help you more. I went through that as well and our sex life was Great, but it was never enough. Now I know why I've felt depressed, lack of focus, guilt, shame. Been 48 days and I've never felt better, open up to her, let her in, I was a little nervous, but in the end you both will enjoy the new you. I really hope 45 is not old, your only as old as you feel, good luck man

    How are things going, I have not been receiving much response from my messages so I figured I'd revisit some of my post that have helped me or I've helped others. Day 67 for me, but not without struggles, if I didn't have sex with wife at least 1-2 times a week there is no way I could succeed with no PM. These are some tough days, I've been trying to not be so busy, cause it's been wearing me thin, but that does not help me not think about pm.

    I'm almost 40 now too, and i started when i was 12 y/o,
    being 45 is still not too late, but it cannot be later than that, I'm speaking here to you and to myself too, if not now then when, if not now then when would i be able to experience life in the normal way that people do, if not now then when could i achieve any success in my life, get up and do it, i advise you to read about NoFap and start a new habit (walking, cooking, exercising..)
