Hi everyone, I'll jump right in and explain why I am here. I am turning 20 in a couple of weeks and am ready to get rid of this addiction once and for all. It first started when I was 14. Like many of the rest of you I started with softer content, but soon enough I found myself watching kinkier and more disturbing content. Even though deep down in the back of my mind I knew it wasn't good for me to continue, I was in denial up until a few months ago when I realized all of my friends were dating, and truly tried to take a look into myself to find out why I wasn't. That led me to give dating a try and realize that I have PIED. Prior to my official decision to give up PMO, dating back to when I was 16, I went through periods of time where I would masturbate at the max once a day, and at minimum 3 weeks without it. The worst was when I was 15 (2-3 times a day). Though what has truly led me here is the feeling that I really have no one/ where to talk to or guide me through this journey. This is where you guys come in! I am looking for an accountability partner/group or someone who can keep me in check through this process. If there is anything I have learned from browsing through the forums and watching the videos on this website (as well as from experience) it is that recovering from this addiction is difficult, nasty, and unforgiving so I believe having someone to talk to directly about these issues will only make things easier. In return, I will gladly do the same for you. I am forever grateful for the existence of this forum, you guys are savings lives by the day.
