This is my first post. I heard about the "Your Brain on Porn" YouTube videos from a guy reading my blog on another message board, and I checked it out. I now realize I have been addicted to porn for 20 years. I'm a 30 year old guy and I found porn on my parents computer when I was 10. Since then I have used it basically every day. I stopped for a week a few times earlier this year to see if it would help me get girls from online dating (I'm single) and I actually did start dating a very cute and positive 23 year old girl a week after I stopped using porn. Now I am making the commitment to stop using porn for the rest of my life, just like I gave up smoking a few months ago, cold turkey. I know it won't be easy, but I want to be the kind of guy that is very good with women and I know it will never happen unless I stop using completely. I've even decided to use drug terminology like "using" and "dope" to refer to it, so I can classify it alongside heroine in my mind, where it belongs. I haven't used in 6 days and I feel ok, about the same, so hopefully around week 5 I'll start to see those benefits you guys are talking about. I plan to post here quite a bit so I hope y'all think I'm cool, haha.
