    I am 23. Today is day one for me of no porn. I stopped 2 times before recently for 8 days and 10 days each. Something I want to say is I had OCD bad when I was a child. I have read on YBOP that if you have OCD it may be too difficult to stop masturbation itself. Basically I think I can stop porn, but I feel a compulsion to masturbate. Probably at least once a day. With porn I have done it up to 7 times a day.

    I believe I have porn induced erectile dysfunction. Each time I stopped porn I saw an initial improvement, but the second time I seemed to go into a flatline where it became hard to masturbate on sensation alone. I had to use thoughts to masturbate. Definitely not thougths of porn though.

    I will admit I have masturbated today without porn. I used some thoughts at first but then did the rest on sensation alone. Like I said I feel a compulsion to masturbate. But I will stop porn.

    I am also forced by the government to take an antipsychotic medication, but I don't feel it has given me erectile dysfunction because my ability to masturbate isn't really any different compared to before I was on the antipsychotic. I didn't try to have sex before I was on the antipsychotic, but I'm pretty sure I would have had the same problems as I was a heavy porn user.
