Hi all! I'm 33 and have been using porn since I was 14, gradually escalating with time and technology. Usually PMOed once or twice every other day but could edge to rather long sessions. I think my sex life was severely affected during the last 11 years with some symptoms being ED, iron grip, normal girls’ bodies seeming unattractive and feeling nothing inside a vagina with a condom on. Gradually I also started feeling attracted to strippers and prostitutes rather than every day girls and I often even preferred PMO to the real thing. Since I am without a job at the moment, I spent a lot of time on the net checking job ads or browsing and I found myself taking longer breaks to relax and checkout new scenes on the porn sites. In the back of my mind I always had the thought that I am spending too much time and energy on P but I never thought of it as something too serious. If I accidentally hadn't stumbled upon YBOP (I don't even remember how I ended up there), my life would probably continue to be full of PMO. Needless to say it blew me away and I identified a part of myself in almost all the stories of the guys that I read. Of course my reduced real world libido and ED finally made sense. I was also struck by the realization that my whole life could have turned out to be different had PMO not robbed me of so much time, energy and my positive attitude for daily activities and chasing real women. It's so ironic that this PMO phenomenon, which is taking the form of a plague in our modern world, has so few people aware of it. This forum should have millions of members (and hopefully one day it will). Personally I also consider myself a screen addict since I spend huge amounts of time watching sports, movies, playing games, browsing etc. and this is something I also have to face. I am now at day 22. My first days were rather easy since they coincided with my breaking up with my girlfriend and I was in a gloomy and not very sexual mood. From last week up till now I get urges every day. I sometimes wake up with morning wood and even though I don't get spontaneous erections, I get hard when sexual images of girls enter my brain. The good thing is that these are real girls and I don't really miss the pornstars but my fantasizing scenarios may be porn oriented. Because I started M and even had sex before the internet era, I guess my brain is familiar to natural sexual behaviour to some extent. At the moment my goal is to reboot for 90 days, see how things turn out and then maybe go back to M with my own natural fantasies of real people. I can definitely see the harm of P but I don’t see M in the same way. Healthy human fantasy sparks creativity and sometimes I may need to release sexual tension when a partner is not available. This does not mean I intend to turn it into a habit again though, Cheers!
