I discovered porn at an early age. By my late teens early 20s I had tried for many years to quit watching porn. I felt I had tried everything until about four years ago (fall of 2013) I found this site. Re-empowered by all the new information I learned from YBOP, I decided to try quitting porn one more time. It was a success! After 100 days of no PMO I was celebrating, bragging about it here in the forums. By 365 days I felt I was "cured" so to speak. I honestly felt free from pornography addiction, even though I acknowledged that the urges never went away. I wrote a post here explaining how I did it. But I realized I was probably more of a sex addict than just a porn addict. I was so empowered by the anti-PMO experience I thought I would try it again, except this time I wanted to quit having meaningless sex until I was in an intimate relationship. That however, messed with my mind a bit and threw me off. After 402 days of no PMO, I had relapsed. I'm not a neurologist so I can't really explain what happened, but re-starting the process had somehow triggered me and thrown me off. I learned then that the reboot process really re-wires your brain and there is no telling what could happen. When I initially quit I had a sudden boost in "hormonal activities," which I called the opposite of flat-lining. I guess this time was too much for my brain to handle. Discouraged, I went the next three years returning to PMOing. It wasn't that I thought I couldn't do it again, I knew it was possible, but I didn't want to start from 0 again and go through the process. I decided to wait, indefinitely. Fast forward three years later, it's a new year, I'm older/more mature, more in control, hormones not as out of control and I've decided to start climbing this mountain again. I will be using the same method I used before, which I stand by (and still recommend, if you're curious). I've reset my counter and logged back here. So here's to another 400+ days!
