hello, i' new to this site, been doing my own rewiring process and this site has helped me so much. For 3 months now, I've stopped my porn viewing habit and thus no longer have the constant craving like i had before.
My question is, would reading erotic literature set me back on my efforts? I used to read stories and having a very vivid imagination and i can get extremely aroused during my reading sessions. Is reading erotic literature same as viewing porn, or is it more "harmless" since your conjuring up your own visuals ( but still is considered fantasizing). I usually had the urge to masturbate when I read these stories, but having controlled my masturbation habit to once or twice a month, i believe I'm STRONGER to resist the temptation to wank whist reading . Will reading erotica undo my efforts, recovery wise? Thanks a lot.
