    I have so much trouble focusing on anything else. It’s like someone snaps their fingers and bam forget everything else and focus on PMO. Sometimes I wonder if I have an attention disorder because I literally can’t focus on anything else. I’ve tried everything. Read books. Go outside. Exercise. I just can’t distract myself long enough. Im probably just a loser. Does anyone else have the same problem? How do you beat it?

  2. I have adhd and im now on day 189. I know how it feels, i sufferes from this for years. What helped me was simple: endurance and getting busy. I mean its not simple of course, but you have a decision to make, or you fight till you make it or you keep stuck. Endure brother, change your routine, try something new, get busy with studies or work till the point you have no time to relapse. I wish you good luck on your journey. :)

    I’ve never gone to a doc or anything so I have no idea but do you suspect I might have ADHD or is it just the addiction talking? I get bored quite easily and revert back to PMO. Was there anything you did to keep yourself on track during periods of boredom?

    @blahblahblah100 what's your working definition of addiction? Here's mine:
    1. Something is harming you,
    2. You sincerely try to stop doing it,
    3. But you find you cannot stop.
    There are various medical definitions of addiction, but that's mine. So what you describe is an addiction and that is why we are all here. We all feel (or felt) like you do. What I love about this site is its experimental nature. There are thousands of guys (and gals) in the same mess you are in and we are all sharing the techniques that worked (or failed) for us. As you read more you'll find ideas of what to try and you can give them a go. If they don't work then drop them, if they work a bit then find others to add, etc. Eventually you will piece together the techniques that will work for you and you will be free of this addiction. But it is hard work and takes a long time.

    Good luck.

    I don’t have adhd but if porn thought arises and I’m not using filters to delay me, I’ll be on a PMO webpage in less than two seconds with almost no thought.
