I want to thank Marnia for this wonderful site which I think is one of the best when it comes to help us porn addicts.
I believe that having an understanding of what's going on in our brains is critical for quitting porn.
I became addicted to online porn in 2007 with the rise of tube sites which made it so easily available.
Getting erections with real women has been a problem lately. I am 100% sure that the cause of this is porn, so I've decided to create an interesting challenge:
100 days without orgasm.
No porn, no masturbation, no sex.
I am single so the "no sex" part is easy.
My motivation for this challenge comes from the success stories of others who have gone a lot of time without porn and find themselves getting turned on by normal women on the street.
So yeah, I believe that this is reversible and that we can return our brains to normal balance again.
Now, I am completely aware that this is not going to be easy. I've tried it several times before and have failed.
I don't care, I'm going to do it this time.
If anyone of you wants to join me you can do so using this forum or through 43 Things (the best goal setting website there is): http://www.43things.com/things/view/3177880/100-days-without-orgasm
In my opinion, these are the 3 requisites for quitting porn:
1) Having a correct understanding of what's going on in our brains when we watch porn and why porn is bad and damaging to our sex lives. The motivation for quitting porn comes from this understanding.
2) Changing our lifestyle. This one is key. Along with this challenge I am doing a big change in my life habits and activities. I usually spend a lot of time in front of the computer and I become bored very easily. We need to focus our attention on healthy activities and reduce the time we spent doing nothing in front of the PC.
3) Being able to handle the withdrawal symptoms and the strong urges of watching porn and masturbating. It's important to rise above our primitive brains, without trying too hard, just in a calm and mindful way. "Oh there are the urges again, I'm going to go do something else".
So who wants to join me?
