Hey guys! I’ve been reading forums like this for a while. Hearing your struggles has helped me a lot, but I’ve realized that the only way I’m going to kick this addiction for good is to get on here and tell my story. So here goes.... I’m 16 years and have been watching porn since I was 12. I started out pretty generic. I enjoyed looking at cute girls on Instagram or YouTube and fantasizing about kissing or touching them like any normal kid. Then things started to get twisted. One day I came across some soft core bdsm. I didn’t really know what to make of it at the time. It was just somehow exciting in a different way so I started masturbating to it every day. By the time I upgrade to real porn sites, I’d picked up so many fetishes that watching normal sex felt weird, so I kept watching my bondage, s&m, feet, belly button licking, anime or whatever would turn me on when I started getting bored of the same thing. I knew it was bad for me and I always wanted to quit or at least cut back, but it just wouldn’t happen. Every day I told myself, “Alright, this is the last time.” Then I started reading no fap and ybop. I realized that I wasn’t alone, and I really could do it. Since then I’ve managed to cut back a lot. I’ve had a couple of 5 day streaks and one 7 day which I’m pretty proud of, but no matter the urges seemed to win eventually. I knew I needed to do more, here I am. Well if your still reading, thank you. This is just the bare bones of my story. I’d also like to write about the effects porn has had on my life. But these are still things that I’ve never told anyone. I couldn’t be more greatful for this form letting me get all this shit off my chest. So thanks a lot for listing guys, and good luck to everyone struggling.
