35 yo male. Single. I have struggled with porn for 20 years. Didn't realize just how miserable it made me until I listened to Your Brain On Porn and it completely opened my eyes. Over the years I had numerous opportunities with women who were clearly interested in me yet I did not reciprocate it. I now know it was the porn-induced haze that was clouding my mind and making me uninterested in real sex. Being exposed to porn at a young age did a lot of damage to my mind and it escalated to extreme content that I hate. Now knowing the effects of porn has given me the incentive and tools to leave it behind. This has been by far the hardest thing I've ever done in my life but it has also been the most rewarding. I know if I keep persevering and progressing I will have victory.
