    19y/o I've been watching porn since I was fourteen. All the guys I grew up watched porn and so it seemed like a very normal thing. It would be at least a couple times a week sometimes more sometimes less.I thought it was fine because at the end of the day I was anticipating that being sexual with a girl would be a way better experience. And it was just as amazing as I thought it would be when I had sex with my girlfriend for the first time at age 18. Had a great 2month run and I didnt even masturbate or watch porn once. That was until one day some family issues started giving me generalized anxiety disorder for the first time in my life and I failed to perform sexually for my girlfriend. And that happened again and again until she dumped me and told all her friends(shes kinda toxic ig) and word spread to my friends and I lost respect and became very lonely, anxiety worsened. Most of my close friends stopped associating with me and I turned to porn for a moment of sexual comfort and now it's been a year and I can't get an erection unless it's porn which worries me a lot. Hopefully this cite can get me through to a better place.

    First of all, they're not your true friends if they didn't support you during those times. In life, I found, that true friends are really hard to come by. Sounds like you felt extremely lonely, so you turned to a damaging vice. Unfortunately, that vice is very very addicting. We're all going through the same thing. You're at the right place brotha. You have all the support you need on here.

    Here is just some advice:
    First and foremost please take a careful look at each section in the forum, there may be something(s) you will find to be of big help to you.

    Secondly I advise you to be active onyour profile(as there a few active people in the profile section). Please start by choosing an avatar and then begin posting frequent status posts to show you're active and needing support/encouragement.
    The forum has got a neat little feature that shows freshly posted statuses for all users to see.
    People will find your profile and give you support.

    There’s a portion of people who love communicating in the profile section..(it should be and is )mostly spportive talk but it doesn't hurt to deviate from supportive conversations. It would be great to have you join in and become part of the team!
    We support others in the threads, profile posts, and journals/reboot logs.
    Once you receive some support, please be sure and be grateful to the member for the help/support you received and consider giving some in return to anyone you wish.

    Thirdly, you should highly consider creating a public journal/reboot log (in the appropriate sectionfor you) to write about your days in depth for us members to follow along on your journey and offer support to you on.

    Please start your journal in the correct section and with that, also try your best to post in the correct sections as it is mandatory and would be helpful to the mods who organize the forum. : )

    Last but not least: Good luck on your journey here, make sure to really give it a try with all your heart!
