Porn became part of my life as a child. It started with finding my Dad's stash of Penthouse and Playboy mags under his bed. My parents also had a poster of a nude woman hanging on the inside of their bedroom door. That was roughly around age 9. A few years later, VHS video introduced movies with sexual content into our "home", during the early to mid eighties. Masturbation to magazine pics, then masturbation to videos, and then around the year 2000, along came internet porn. That was at age thirty roughly, right smack in the middle of wife, kids, career and church. My first introduction to "porn recovery" was during the early 2000's through a church "ministry", which encouraged men to meet and start opening up about porn use and all of it's associated problems. So, the sporadic recovery work I guess started then, with long intervals of ignorance, repression and denial. Fast forward to 2015 approximately, when another "faith-based" church ministry caught my attention, which had evolved from the original one I had engaged with 10-12 years earlier. At this point, the reboot concept prompted me to complete a 90 day reboot, which was a central theme of this particular "program". After the 90 days was over, I went back to old behaviors eventually....so, more recently I have discovered that the 90 days is not a "cure-all", but rather a general guideline, and each individual many need a reboot period that fits his or her particular situation. I started another one 72 days ago, and I don't have a particular reboot schedule in mind, but rather I am going indefinitely this time, monk mode actually. I have no sexual partners. My wife and I recently separated and my kids are adults and I am here alone with the dog. So, here I go, at age 52....I don't know where this journey is leading, but total abstinence from sexual activity is my current method of rebooting, and I have discovered the wonder of writing once more, and I have discovered that the journey to self is what is driving me.
