I think I have a serious problem (with watching pornography)

Porn addiction is the worst thing in my life and it’s not even close. I’ve realized I had this problem but lately I’ve become more conscious Of it. I’ve been reading google and I am the worst of the porn addicts. It is what it is. I have an addiction and I need to solve this addiction. It’d be one thing if I watched porn like 4 times per week. But it’s I try to not watch it I can’t even make a day. Then I surrender to my desires and I watch it like 4x in a span of a night. It’s really bad. I’m not saying I don’t want to orgasm anymore. Orgasm/masturbation would still be a part of my life but not PORN. I have this love hate relationship. I’m thinking about sex addicts anonymous honestly for help. Do u have any advice with me if you’ve experienced the same thing. Please don’t tell me to just stop. I know that’s what it comes down to. But I need to change more than that. I’m not sure what to do. Help.

Yes. I have that addiction.

Nothing wrong with watching p0rn.

I just dont act on it anymore. I couldnt even last a few minutes when I started, now I can watch a good 20 min video without getting aroused.

Is it worse now that you’re sober from drugs? Could be you’re swapping one addiction for another. I’ve heard that can happen. Covenant Eyes (a website) may be able to help.

I think this has always been a problem for me. Maybe progressively worse but …you know Terry Crews??? The buff huge guy from white chicks and old spice commercials. Well he said he had a lifelong porn problem. But he’s solved it. I’d honestly wish he was my mentor on this one lolll.

Surely I would not be able to ejaculate as often if I stopped watching porn?? Because it’s easier to reach orgasm through porn. I can’t reach orgasm in sex with the amount of porn I watch.

Thanks for the recommendation loke!!! You’re greatly appreciated.

Hmmm. There was a point when I’d watch porn almost daily. Then I stopped watching it completely for about 3 years. I felt much better. I didn’t really think about it as a porn issue but I just felt more willing to go outside and didn’t feel like people would look at me and judge for that. Sometimes it felt like people would before. During that time I was off meds too. I started going to school, talking to a couple ladies who found some interest in me.

Anyway, now I watch porn maybe twice a month and I’ve been trying to reduce in that as well. From what I have read online, according to some articles, too much porn can be unhealthy for the mind.

I guess I just want to you to know that it is possible to reduce or even stop watching it altogether.

I also have a porn addiction. I always tell myself before I masturbate “This is the last time!”, then I cave in a few days later. I’ve got it down to only 2-3 times a week, but I’d like to eliminate it from my life completely. It’s terrible.

Anytime bro. You are not alone in this problem. I think with the rise and easier access because of the internet, it has become a problem with many young men.

When I was tempted to look at porn I would call my aunt and she would pray for me. I did that on the daily for a while. She never judged me.

I don’t really have any good advice on how to quit. I just remind myself that it’s very unhealthy for the mind, and sometimes that deters me from watching it. It makes it tough, though, when I don’t have a girlfriend or lady friend to talk to/hang out with.

Anyways, I’ve just tried to quit it cold turkey and it’s helped somewhat. Good luck, @Gratitude

I’ve heard that most men look at porn. If I were in a relationship I would feel like my man was cheating if he did that.

which is why I didn’t watch porn the last time I was talking to a girl. I felt really guilty about it, so I didn’t watch it

Lol. A long time ago when I was in a relationship I watched this movie called Mulholland Drive or something like that. It had a scene with some nudity with the actress Naomi Watts. My girlfriend was not happy I was ogling her. She nearly slapped me and threw a fit. I let her know that the actress didn’t compare to her. Then we talked about the birds and the bees.:wink: ah those days were fun. The song Brown Eyed Girl still reminds me of her sometimes.
