    It's been 3 weeks, and tonight I almost lost it...
    For me, fighting addictions is part of my life since over 10 years. Drugs, alcohol, gambling, porn on the internet.
    (By the way, I'm french so I do my best to wright this so you understand) If somebody reads?!
    At age 36, I'm verry proud of what I've accomplished so far. I have a new carrer in front of me, I don't do drugs anymore and my life is pretty stable. But the thing is I can't keep on using porn like I use to. It dos'nt fit with who I'm becoming...I have a girlfriend and a daughter. I love them very much. When the pressure is too high, I use porn and then I feel verry bad. I want to quit. 3 weeks is good and tonight, wrighting this helped me to go on and free myself!
    Thanks for reading!
  2. Hi Better Man, welcome to the forums, and congratulations on making it 3 weeks! That's no small accomplishment. I imagine you are feeling strong cravings tonight, and that is why you are struggling. One strategy is EXERCISE, go for a good jog. This always eases my cravings very quickly. Once you get through today, find an exercise regime you like and can do whenever you feel cravings in future. My choice is Bikram Yoga. Once you can think a little more clearly, remind yourself of all the reasons why you want to beat this addiction. It sounds like you have some good things in your life to help motivate you. Remind yourself why using PMO will not ease your cravings - it'll only make them worse, and send you back to square one. You will only be here again in 3 weeks with the same cravings, if you don't beat them now. I hope this helps. Keep reading through the forum and getting inspiration. UNDERSTANDING IS KEY. I feel like I have acquired a 'diploma of PMO addiction' since starting. I have learned so much about myself and addiction. All the best.
