    You can find the reason this all started.

    When I was a kid, I didn't have many friends. I had a few close ones, but after a while, they moved away. Sure, I found new friends here and there, but I stopped planning things with my friends. I stopped going out as much and started feeling alone. This is not where my addiction started, but it is why it continued. I use pornography to escape my feelings of loneliness, pain, depression, anxiety, etc. The only way to get better is to face my fears and make new friends, pursue sports and hobbies, and take much needed time away from the computer (other than work). I'm going to try again a different way, holy sh*t this is difficult.

    I also attribute my addiction to loneliness plus early exposure, I first saw P when I was 8 and learned how to M when i was 10.

    Loneliness is slowly diminishing as I'm going out more and meeting new people and such but still gotta get over the P-related brainwashing.

    Good plan mate. I barely used my computer (aside from study needs) these last few weeks, and after having a day relaxing and just browsing online - I realise how much of a trap it can be!

    Sure, there may be interesting articles and videos, but it's such a time sink, or at least that's how it feels now. Back to using it as a study/work tool only for me.

    And yes agree completely that we must find our route issues. From what I understand, the longer we live without medicating the issues with this addiction (or any other), the sooner they surface, we process them and heal, and are then and only then able to fully move on.
