    RebornAgain Beating my addiction one day at a time.. Staff Member

    Many of you know me for my ability to quit porn and stay away from porn.

    Things went really shitty to really good in a matter of 2 years. I was finally getting somewhere. I was finally improving. Growing.

    I met a great girl and we got engaged last June. We had a wedding planned for September of this year. I've never been in a relationship like this one. Yet somehow, I managed to throw it all away. I slept with an escort last month and the truth came out.

    My whole world and future came crashing down. I may have successfully quit porn. But I've messed up my life and even worse, I've destroyed someone else's. My significant others. The one woman who I'm supposed to have her back no matter what. Thick and thin.

    Please learn from my mistakes. I let everyone down. I let myself down.

    Haha you're being a real blunt dick right here but you're not wrong. Porn addiction is all about fucking as much women as you can, and once you actually know how to fuck - that's when the problems could start. That's your current situation RA. Addiction is over but the brain is far from normal. You're somewhere in a twilight zone.

    Your life isn't over yet, there's much to live for. In fact, I know many men - through SAA - that have been in far worse situations and addiction rehab and relation therapy worked out their terrible situations.
    If she is the right one for you and you are the right one for her you should consider these steps.
    No matter what at this point there's only a more positive outcome.

    Have you thought about why you slept with the escort? Were you desperate for sex? Desire to sleep with someone else?

    If you're engaged maybe you and your partner would be interested in getting to the root of why exactly you did, so you can see if it's something that can be resolved. See a therapist or someone who can offer you professional advice.

    And why did you post this in success stories?

    Just quickly reading this post, but realize ED issues and emotional/mental issues are related. You can't really separate these aspects of life.

    I'm sorry to hear about that, but you didn't let everyone down...you're still porn free, and you've accomplished a lot. You need to learn from this mistake...but there will be other girls. Or perhaps you will work it out with this one.

    This is the problem when someone thinks they have successfuly "quit porn" but have not addressed the root of the issue which is lust.

    Perhaps you was "playing a good game" with this woman in order to marry her (as you thought if you did that you would be "changed") but you really still had issues with sexual compulsive behavior that needed to be addressed.

    Shame on you. That's bullcrap. Yourbrainrebalanced is not purely an erectile dysfunction forum.

    Lots of people here want to change their lives for the better not just cure ED so they can go off to pursue a hedonistic lifestyle and eventualy relapse back to porn.

    Well... this is a bad situation. But I encourge you not to overdramatise what happened. You didn't let everyone down. (E.g. you didn't let ME down.) You didn't destroy your fiance's life.

    It's not clear from what you've written whether she's still with you or not. Maybe you weren't sure at the time you wrote it. This situation isn't hopeless!

    Ya. A giant mistake was made. I've slept with escorts. It is much worse than fapping in several ways but I'm not here to elaborate on sex addiction and contributing to the demand for prostitution, escort is a fancy word for hooker man.
