OK, I'm 29 years old and been trying to give up PMO with varying degrees of success since July last year, generally lasted 10-14 days each time (record was 17 days so not great). Have always been a bit nervous around women and my last relationship finished mainly due to my ED which she couldn't cope with, as I was looking at porn while going out with her. After this I got back into looking at porn on a semiregular basis until finding the yourbrainonporn site, and haven't been in a relationship with any girls during this time (have had a couple of one night stands and suffered from ED both times, although the second time I did manage eventually to have sex). Christmas day I started again and made it to 70 days before a relapse (just a one off). During this time I did masturbate a few times but there was no porn or porn fantasising. Just the thought of some girls I've been with in the past was enough for me and my erections were a lot harder than they've been in a long time. During the 70 days I was definitely noticing improvements, morning wood, stronger and more frequent erections etc. Thought I would give it another go and again, I tended to last 7-14 days each time. Most recent try was 24 days before PMO. Today is day 1 since PMO. Given that I have been trying to quit since last July, I am hoping that my previous efforts have had some effect and that I will experience signs of recovery after, say, 60 days rather than 90 or 120. Having given the matter some thought, I have realised that part of the problem may be that I have tried doing it all myself and not involving other people. I did keep a journal before but that was only for me. Couldn't tell family or friends as they would not understand. Although I have the K9 filter installed on my laptop, there is nothing on my housemates computer which is where I have been PMO recently. By keeping a public journal that others can read (even if only 1 other person reads this they will still know what I am trying to accomplish) I am making myself more "accountable". Whenever the thoughts appear in my head I can think that I am letting down myself but also anyone else who is reading this and offering advice or support. Apologies if this is first post is too long. I will try and update this every few days to keep a record of how things are going. Obviously the end goal is to never PMO and have a normal sex life. Fingers crossed that this time I can get there.
