Porn is so great when abstaining, but boring when you actually watch it

    When Im on NoFap porn becomes like a forbidden fruit, I feel like Im forcing myself to not relapse because that fruit is too good, and that much good is evil. Its like a parent hiding sweets before his children to not spoil them too much.

    But whenever I give into a urge and relapse the porn doesn't feel even remotely as exciting as I thought it would be. And then I regret it and the cycle continues.

    Is anyone else like this too?

  2. Yes, this is tolerance/desensitization, a normal symptom of addiction. You crave porn more and more but like it less and less. It is a symptom of the physical changes happening within your brain. This is common to all addictions.

    I know what you mean, but I think we must have a different point of view here. And that is that porn is not at all a forbidden fruit, but actually it is real poison. The fruit itself is not good. It's like you say yourself: " Whenever I give into a urge and relapse the porn doesn't feel even remotely as exciting as I thought it would be". This is an important lesson! I just relapsed some days ago on day 17, because apparently I believed that something is good about porn. We must get it in our frame of mind that it is only bad, only poison, wicked, evil and disgusting. Because let's face it: That is just what it is! Ever watched a porn-site without urges, but pure objective and analytical seeing what is going on? Actually we should be healed by an instant if we did that. Ok, good luck!
     
  4. Pure facts but somehow so many people including me still find themselves falling back in the same hole

    Absolutely!!! Boring, empty, repetative. I hate the searching for just one tiny difference in body type, angle, lighting, voice etc. So pointless...

    One thing for sure: we may keep doing something that give us pleasures. Sure when u do too much pmo u may have less pleasure but it's still there, it's not as high as the first time yet that's the only thing that gives u quick pleasure for now.

    It also means if there's one thing can give u the same pleasure, pmo is no longer needed.
