    Thanks Perce, we’re all the same in many ways. I did find that my wife really understands very little about male urges when we discussed things recently. She seemed to think (not sure I believe her) that stopping masturbation was just something you did. Like stopping a slightly dirty habit. I...

    Thanks @marco_60 - libido is a funny thing. Having had many years of compulsive MO and PMO, the brain has no idea what normal sexual needs are. But mine is (at least partially) retrained. So I have to be satisfied with what I am left with and believe it’s what I deserve. I am 62 and obviously...

    831 days sober 14 days no MO Thanks @Percival . Libido is a funny thing. Not sure I want it to fade but it does torture me. How weird is that? Things are ok here but wife said she thought we had been through a rocky patch recently - I didn’t agree, but that’s what she said. Allegedly my...

    827 days sober 10 days no MO I have unbelievably high libido right now. Morning glories are phenomenal. So driven gently mad by nothing intimate going on. Yes, I could ask, but I know the answer. But honestly all is good.

    Thanks for weighing in @marco_60 - relapses happen. I know that’s a fact of life. I just thought the literature I was reading was very slightly telling people that you’re going to relapse and don’t worry about it. I agree not worrying but I just don’t agree with saying it out loud to people...

    Finding life outside gadgets, social media and porn

    This is the crux @SajithKR - you either grit your teeth and don’t give in, or you relapse.

    Porn is not an option

    Hello mate. Totally understand the complete flatline scenario. It’s the oddest thing. Sort of scary and sort of a relief. You know (I know you do) that it doesn’t mean you’ve lost your masculinity or sex drive. It’s just an alien feeling. You know what it actually is? It’s factory settings...

    818 days sober 1 day no MO I started my sobriety in very early March 2022, I must have got lost on the count somewhere in between because the number of days added up to 2 years around March 8 this year. Anyway, I am roughly 27 months clean now. It is life affirming and quite extraordinarily...

    Finally, I'm doing this…

    Keep going, mate. You come back on here and admit all. So many wouldn’t have the bottle to do that. Keep fighting. No plan B.

    Another story - probably the same as everyone else

    814 days sober 14 days no MO Lack of intimacy sessions is slightly getting me down. This is the only place where I say that. No one else to complain to except wife who I know is trying very hard to forgive. Problem is I think she has forgiven just can’t forget.

    Moving Forward

    Hi @PrometheusUnbound - don’t be too hard on yourself. You didn’t M, so you’re just mildly torturing yourself. But after 90 days no MO, I think you’re entitled to give yourself a massive pat on the back. We all have needs and expecting them to go away is unrealistic. Just stay true to who you...
