Its been years since I've been on this forum so I thought I'd begin by telling you a little bit about my story before I begin to explain how I finally overcame this affliction. -I began porn use from an early age and masturbated to it over three times a day. -When I first tried to have sex I had ED. -I solved the problem with Viagra but after a few years that lost its effect. -I discovered NoFap when I was 24 and began to realise the root of my issues. -I went many years with 5-20 day streaks and then had loads of 24hr porn binges that would send me into despair. -Despite screwing up on quitting porn I was now able to get hard with Viagra once again -Ages 26-27 spent still trying to quit and failing. It led me to feeling suicidal. Reached an all time low. -Aged 28 - Massive recovery. After 4-5 years of trying and failing I found something that worked for me. So here it is: this is how I recovered and I would highly recommend it for people who just cannot seem to beat this despite years of trying. -The first thing I did was realised that I masturbated whenever I was super stressed: porn was my coping strategy -I read tons of books on will-power: what I realised is that willpower is a muscle that develops over time. If we try and do too much too soon then we fail. So I knew these two things: 1, I masturbate to porn to escape stress/sadness. 2, quitting pmo is probably too much for me too do - hence all those 20 day streaks and then binges. MY SOLUTION: -I realised that it was porn that I wanted to quit more than anything so that is what I did. I quit porn but nothing else - I was still allowed to masturbate as much as wanted and even allowed fantasy. Any time I was stressed I just masturbated without guilt. All I had to do is not use porn. -Also, at this time I started doing positive things such as lose weight and begin writing again. This is probably not directly of use to some of you guys but I think this creates positive self esteem - something a lot of us don't have because we've been fighting ourselves for so long. -I went 100 days without porn. At this point I considered myself no longer addicted. I know some people say 30 days to break an addiction but for me I really wanted to do a 100 days. You can do what you want but you will know when you feel that you no longer crave it. -After 100 days I continued to masturbate but I only did it a few times a week when I really, really wanted to. I also minimised fantasy, but every so often I would let slip. -I did that for a few months and began dating again. -I began seeing someone and after a few weeks we began to have sex. I used half a Viagra just to be safe. -After a few weeks I stop masturbating and begin to have sex twice a week instead. -A month later I stop taking Viagra. -This summer: I no longer use porn. I have sex with my girlfriend. When she goes away I will masturbate but not much (every 2-3 days). I now have a functional life and have overcome my addiction. Anyway, that's it. Very simple. But I thought this could help for some of the hard cases here. I spent so many years beating myself for nothing and I wish I tried this sooner. My biggest advice is stop trying to be perfect from the offset and just use zero porn - that's the cause of most of our problems. People have masturbated since time began, its only since porn began that people began to develop issues. I hope this helps. Let me know what you think. I'll stay logged in for the next week or so to help answer questions if you have any. I really just want to pay it forward right now so I am glad to help.
