    I am a porn addict. Though I have admitted this to myself before, this is the first time I have shared it with anyone.

    I have been watching and using porn as my escape from reality and social situations since I hit puberty. I did not even consider it an addiction until I had tried numerous times (on my own) to stop and ended up reverting to old habits.

    I did not know the harmful effects of constant porn watching and masturbating to it until I learned about it causing erectile dysfunction which I am now experiencing in my relationship I believe due to this addiction.

    I am a few years into my marriage and I cannot count the number of times I have used porn to orgasm as opposed to having sexual relations with my partner. I learned about NoFap through a Goolge search for forums that deal with addictions and porn addiction specifically.

    With the support on this site I hope to finally overcome this struggle and save my marriage as my wife would like to get pregnant and with my porn induced erectile dysfunction that is impossible. I crave your support and help as I try to reboot. I have also looked into actual meet groups as I am serious about kicking this addiction. I will be relocation to Toronto, Ontario shortly so any advice about where to go is welcome.

    Thank you. I am making a real effort this time to be a better, healthier me. Plus in a few months I will be packing up my life to relocate to a new area. Looking for a fresh start and clean slate to accompany that move; letting go of old baggage and habits.

    We're all going through the same shit as you dude, you're not alone in this
    I'm 19 years old and can't get it up without porn. I'm currently on day 35 of no PMO
    Abstaining from porn is the only way we can fix our lives my friend, so stick through it and try to never in your life go back to the demon that is porn
