Hey guys, My story is pretty typical as most of you, I would assume, so I'll get to where am at and what my progress is. I'm a junior at Christian college currently and first decided that I wanted to get rid of this addiction of PMO in my freshman year. I confided in close friends to help kick the habit, but most weeks I haven't been able to go 2-3 days without relapsing. A few times I've had streaks of 10-days and of 14-days and it's been so exciting to be free during those streaks. I hugely desire to get rid of it, but there's a part of me that still draws me to relapse again. I've gotten rid of Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter from my phone to reduce the number of triggers, I've read books on the effects on pornography, yet I still can't kick the habit mainly of this reason: I have dreams of fantasies of having sex with other women and when I wake up, I remember those dreams, go online and relapse. I am a virgin too and don't have a girlfriend. I want to get rid of this addiction, to become sexually pure (not receiving sexual gratification from anyone or anything except my [future] wife). Most of you on here, and I too, desire intimacy and relationship with a woman. I want to get rid of this addiction before I date so I don't have to share this struggle with her (because I have been freed, hopefully). I know that PMO distorts my perspective of women (and a variety of other things), so I want to wait before I date. The question is, how long do I need to wait? Most days are fine, but there are moments where the temptation and thoughts seem to come from nowhere (like my dreams), and I get kicked down again and again. I'm stuck. Help?
