If you haven't read mine, take a look. I'm in the 40 and over group.The only thing that manages to calm down a little bit my desire to act out is reading success stories. Especially those "Before/After" type of stories. The "Before" stories are many times something I would write. It reminds me of where I'm coming from and what I could get if I decided to "do nothing" about the craving. When you feel like you can't wait anymore, it might help to read some posts and articles like that for motivation. Just tell yourself: "5 minutes until I finish reading this, if I'm to jerk off anyway" but you might not even want to do it anymore after reading.
I have been addicted since I was very young. We're talking a solid 45 years of this nonsense. But when high speed internet came about, I was just starting to work from home and that made me dive into the depth of hell with porn. My wife worked away from home so I was there all day. Porn up for 8 hours, sometimes I would PMO to completion 4 or 5 times a day. As this was happening I was having more and more trouble keeping an erection. Soon I wasn't able to orgasm in my wife. I had to pull out and manually finish. Then I just started not being able to have sex at all. But, my porn was always standing by to help get me there. Until it no longer did. It would take me hours to finish. I had to find the weirdest and dirtiest thing to make me orgasm. I would try that same thing a day later and no go, had to keep searching. You get the picture.
So, this year on April 15 after finishing to a bizarre video that made me question my existence, I found Reboot Nation and haven't looked back. I'm just about at 6 months with no PMO and only masturbated without porn 5 times. I decided I really need to go hard mode so I'm now at 60 days of that. I am finally at a place where I absolutely don't feel like I need it. I can get a little triggered by things, but it is so easy to brush it off now. I credit this site, Your Brain on Porn and The Easy Peasy Method for helping me along the way. But I do feel that I had to get to the point where I was hating myself for this behavior. I was sitting here with my pants around my ankles wondering the hell I was doing. I had had enough.
Now, I don't want to make it sound like it has been easy. The first 45 days were great. I was craving but I was fighting. But then for the next 40 or 50 days I was questioning the whole process. I was ready to throw in the towel. Somehow I made it through that phase and around 100 days the cloud lifted, my brain felt clear and I haven't experienced that kind of craving since. 160 days today. I can't even believe it myself.
So, I know I still have a long way to go to be healed, but I'm seeing a light at the end of the tunnel. I found that the more I focused on other things, the easier it was. For me it's been exercise and music. And of course this site. Every time I got a craving, go to rebootnation.org instead of porn site. Read the success stories. Read the failures or let's say lapses. As long as we keep trying, keep coming back here, they are just lapses. If you walk away and give in to the addiction completely, then that is a failure.
I hope my story helps. I'm hoping for a happy ending, but if I'm in the middle of my recovery, it's a pretty good book so far.
Stay strong, stay focused, find something you love and throw yourself into it and come here often to get support and to get the nonsense out of your head. Good luck.
