    Sorry but this question is not a joke,
    you know what they usually say that drinking too
    much beer might give you a "beer belly" and "beer tits"..
    which is supposed to be due to oestrogens in beer (hops).

    Plus i actually had a look in a book about plant/herbal medicine,
    which says that hops had been used at christian monasterys and was recommended
    to teenage boys in earlier times to lower the sex-drive and "to give up masturbation".
    So the "effective compound" here seems to be the hops, not the alcohol.

    Maybe having an alcoholfree beer when you feel really horny might help a bit..

    any experiences?

    Here's the thing

    When a porn addict feels "horny" this is NOT a real sex drive. It is the brains reward center craving dopamine... It's not real libido.

    So I don't know for sure if 'hops' would help with cravings or not...

    I do know that most guys on this forum do not want anything to do with something that will hurt their sex drive lol

    So my answer is, I'm not sure but their is a difference between wanting porn and wanting a real woman..

    Hope this helps.

    Well, my thoughts on this are that beer might help in a way but there are other ways instead of beer because what's happening here is that you're taking on activities that are not related to PMO or MO and that's the little trick that could help.

    addiction isn't a problem with excess testosterone.

    Beer seems to increase prolactin which inhibits dopamine- which is the very last thing you want when your dopamine is already low!

    Alcohol lowers the consious rational and inhibitory functions of the brain, effectively lowering our ability to rational thought and executive decision. Its allways been a no no for me, unless its a social situation where isolation is not possible. I've got dinged by that one a zillion times. I swear, there's a little chunk of my consious though patterns devoted to figuring out ways to trick me into relapse. 'lets get the bastard drunk first' is one of its favourite tactics.
