I’m 50 years old and have always had a pretty strong sex drive. I discovered porn when I was about 14 but fortunately the internet didn’t exist in the form it does today. I got fast internet when I was about 32 and I’ve been binging on porn ever since.
I've always been really insecure of my flaccid penis and my erections. Once I realized it was because of PMO I knew that was it. It took me two years to really accept the fact. I was a very bad addict and three years later I still struggle with M and flatlines.
I am 24, and have been using porn since early teens, pretty much exactly the same as Gabe to be honest. Oh what was I thinking right? Don't you just love hindsight. I know you got to roll with the punches in life but man, a broken noodle is one low blow from the man upstairs…
I came to this forum around 8 weeks ago, after I started my journey to go porn free the week previous. I was 41, addicted to porn since 13 years old, depressed, suicidal, my relationship with my girlfriend was tanking because of PIDE
This might not make sense to you right now, or even be the thing you want to hear, but the day that I started doing NoFap to improve myself, and not my relationships with women or personal bravado, is the day that I truly conquered my addiction.
Back about 4 years ago I was addicted to masturbating, porn, benzodiazepines, anti-depressants, anti-psychotics, cigarettes, marijuana and anything else I could get for free. (Mom had a hell of a medical plan)
I started fapping around the age of 14, however I watched very few porn. I relied mostly on fetishes inherited from my childhood to get aroused. And as time went on, they became nastier and nastier, and the internet surely helped this trend.
