    Hola hermano!
    Te aconsejo que busques toda la información posible acerca de cómo dejar esta adicción, porque, aunque parezca simple, es un proceso que tiene muchas sutilezas y matices. El primer consejo que te yo te daría sería que pensaras bien e hicieras una lista con las razones por las que quieres dejarlo. Eso te ayudara en tu camino. Animo hermano! Saldremos de esta mierda!

    Due the coronavirus and quaarantine I deceided to make my life more creative and do more things so lets get started.

    Here is my list of Pros and Cons of Staying watching Porn which I created like 1 or 1.5 years ago :)

    Pros :
    - I know where am I and I know it is my comfort zone (feeling of safety)

    Cons :
    - My depression is going to grow
    - lack of perspective for change
    - I gonna still be weak and tired
    - Staying in the comfort zone will not foretell anything good
    - The future probably is going to be the same as my Present and Past
    - no friends
    - no girlfriend
    - Little libido, energy and motivation to do something great in my life
    - Low confidence
    - Weak performence on GYM and mediocre poker player
    - Lots of time wasting on video games, internet, movies but I remember times when I was doing nofap for more than 3weeks + I rly didnt even wanted to waste my time for games due the very simple cause : it wasnt giving me any resource in Longterm and I was very sure this.

    The number of cons and their power is so strong . After reading something like this you should be motivated to getting started.
    I also made a list of Pros and Cons of Quiting watching porn which gonna write down here in a moment. Tell me what you think about it!

    Quit watching Porn:

    Pros :
    - I feel much better, strong with a lot of energy, motivated
    - I am wasting much less time
    - I am not brainwashed and I play poker much better (by brainwashed I mean difficulty with focus or beeing in present due overdose porn, games or internet = when u do things on autopilot)
    - I am much more focused on HERE and NOW
    - no mood swings
    - I am very cheerful and I have good connection with other people
    - I am very self-confident and I work a lot
    - Back to the natural relations : I build friendships and have much more time for them when before I often wasnt interested in keeping touch with my friends due lack of motivation to do it.
    - I have much better relations with people
    - If I really want to change my life and others then I feel I have to do this (nofap) There is no other way.

    Cons :
    - It gives me a momentary pleasure, however my conscience hurts due this really much.
    - I can make me feel better when I have bad time, feeling bad or I am bored. also I like doing this whenever I am tilte to make myself temporary happy or at least satisfied.

    very true, when we are up, the addiction is down. when we are down the addiction is up. that´s why is important to have a triggers plan and keep it active no matter. in many streaks i had moments of sheer confusion, fatigue, sickness and many times it was my triggers plan that save me from disaster because the willpower was extinct. try to see how a triggers plan could prevent you from reaching a dangerous situation. in the next days you will thank so much for not relapsing before.

    it´s garanteed, whenever we feel blurry, the first thing we think, it´s pmo.

    excellent list brother!! that´s it :). maybe adding another argument to the pro´s of quitting porn:
    i´m not free, as an addict, i can´t control pmo usage.

    that´s a very powerful argument and help puts things in perspective.

    Day 2: Still feeling tired and a bit sick. Ended up spending most of today in bed. When I did come downstairs, I just spent the day playing a video game. Not a productive day, but I needed the rest. Hope tomorrow I feel better for Easter. Stay strong!

    I just had wet dreams last night. I don't know if it counts as a relapse or not. I don't remember what that dream is.

  17. No, wet dreams don't count as a relapse. It's not something you have any control over. Congratulations on two weeks! Keep going man

  19. Yep,I was right. People have testosterone and estrogen analyzing system inside their bodies.
    I had to go out for something and noticed people paying attention to me, especially girls.
    I was curious to know. Yep, I'm getting a lot more attention than when I wasn't clean. Despite the fact, I don't give any shit to attraction thingy anymore, BECAUSE I do it for the sake of my own mental state/my personality/HORMONES BALANCE*** which has got neglected all the time.

    I simply F.ed my body and brain with porn/ unstable level of hormones/every thing was out of control. Now, gradually I'm getting back to my optimal mental/body state.

    NOT because I left porn. I STILL WATCH porn but not for joy, but analyzing why/under which circumstances I'd fancy to do some things and to know why a body can be triggering and to find the exact reason and try to control my subconscious mind.

    Now I find my self able to control my subconscious mind, that was a tremendous victory.
    More than leaving porn, I'm hardly trying to change my mindset and have control on my subconscious mind, to only let specific stimulus operate that I want.
