    So so confused .

    @Style12 Your question is all too familiar. Porn is like any other drug. The addict, including myself at the peak of my use, needed different porn to "get off." Heterosexual pornography wasn't doing it for me, so I started watching some weird stuff. When that wasn't enough, I started acting out...

    You Protect What You Love

    Sorry it's been so long. I'm doing well, just very busy. Son broke his foot two weeks into his senior year of basketball. I've been hospitalized with low sodium and have been in to see doctors more in one month than I have in a year. I am still clean and haven't relapsed.

    Diary on248: Quitting Porn for Good.

    You should always return, even if it's multiple relapses a day. Express how you are feeling at the moment. It will only benefit in the long run. Where did you hear that MO is a "healthy form of release"? It is generally not recommended for a recovering pornography addict to engage in any...

    My trial again

    I have a question for you. How are you doing with emotion management? I have discovered that my feelings, and my inability to comprehend them or let others in to help manage them, were a major contributing factor to my use of PMO. It's important to accept and acknowledge your feelings, as they...

    Starting on December 28. At midnight. Day 1.

    @VÊNØM Welcome to RN. It's natural for people to want to feel needed and valued by others. The feeling of being needed can provide a sense of purpose and belonging, as well as a sense of accomplishment and self-worth. It can also contribute to a person's overall well-being and happiness...

    Trying for a new start

    Relapse can be an overwhelming and difficult experience, and it is typical for people to feel helpless and upset after one. Relapses are a normal part of the recovery process, but it is possible to get back on track and carry on working toward your objectives. Congratulations on three days...

    Was addicted to porn and now rebooting

    It is not uncommon for the penis to go through periods of being flaccid or not erect during reboot. This is a typical aspect of the physiological process of male arousal that several things can alter, such as drugs, PMO, general health and wellness, and physical and emotional feelings.

    Enough is enough

    @Galatians51 Outstanding job, my brother! What has helped you overcome the temptation to not go back to PMO?

    Signs he is watching and lying about it?

    I will always advocate for this statement. When you catch an addict and they either gaslight or lie, our or your natural instinct is to call them out, but we or you want to believe with all your heart that they are telling the truth and continue on down the road of life.

    My story

    To piggyback off of what @Yuki @Galatians51 have already stated, it is a tremendous step in your life at age 15 to realize you have a problem; you want help, and you want to rid yourself of this habit. I'm 44; at age 6, I was told it was ok to touch a naked woman's body by my babysitter. Age...

    Why porn addiction is different when it comes to support

    Your story sounds all too familiar. My wife was the one initiating the sex life. Sometimes I participated, or I made some excuse why I didn't want to. My pornography addiction lead to problems with communication and trust in the relationship. My wife felt that she couldn't trust my actions or...

    New beginning

    @ankur171 What is it you're specifically asking help for? I would assume it's for pornography addiction, correct?
