Hi to all
I came across this site after doing some goggling. One thing that's astonished me is the support that is on offer for people looking to kick the habit of internet porn. I never knew about your body actually experiencing 'hangover's' from orgasm and all that sort of stuff, so to read through some of the information on offer was great.
I'll give you a quick background. I'm 23 years old & have been surfing the net for porn since I was 16. I feel that everything I have read on this site about biological urges and that sort of stuff is exactly why I continued to look at internet porn (without actually knowing at the time). I've seen a decline in one particular friend I have who has an open addiction with pornography (although they view it as a good thing). I suppose my main desire to put a stop to my addiction is so that I give myself the best oppurutnity to become a better person.
One of my turning points was watching a documentary about young adults who had been trying to recover from internet porn addiction. I have to admit that it has been an ongoing effort with me, which has probably gone on about 6 months. Initially I went through a period of 50 days without it, then when I decided to go back into it, its like it opened up a floodgate. This is the most serious attempt I've given it since then, I am currently up to 9 days and am determined to stick to it. I thought with the help of the information on offer & by becoming a forum member that I can establish a network of support that will help me deal with 'withdrawals' or any 'urges' that might occur. So I suppose this is going to be a good thing for me to use & I'll regularly log in to contribute to my own thread in the hope that this will be one of the tools I use to keep me on the straight.
I look forward to reading more on these forums as well as absorbing all the useful information that is on offer on the website.
till next time,
