I'm a first time poster but I have been coming to this site since day 1 to day 100 of no PMO. I wanted to just thank you all for your blogs and honesty, because your stories made me feel that I'm not fighting this battle alone.
It has been a very difficult journey with ups and downs. I have been using porn since I was 12 to now as a 25 year old and have used it as an escape from the stresses of my life. I have never dated and often times porn was my escape from the realization that I wasn't popular with the ladies. I went on this abstinence because I was tired of being alone, my commitment to serving others in my fellowship, and the damage I was doing to my relationship with God.
I am still tempted everyday, but I now have the strength to walk away and fight these urges. Often times I think of how much easier it would be to just give in and answer the call to self degradation, but I go on with the hope that a relationship with a real woman is so much better.
Thank you all once again, you guys and gals are real heroes for making this change in your lives, and you are a real inspiration to me. Best of luck and I hope to meet many of you in the forums.
