When my soon-to-be wife and I started dating, I shared with her that I had a history with pornography and masturbation but it hadn't been a problem for a while (a couple years). She understood that it was something most guys struggled with at some time or another and she helped me feel better about being open with her.
I want to make this "short" and simple. I just want to give some back story and let you all know what happened. I am currently age 22. I started like most of you, found porn when I was 12 or 13 and have been hooked ever since. I would PMO daily at least once since about age 15. Around the age of 18 I had sex with several girls and that's when I first started noticing ED.
Around 3 months back, I made the decision to finally quit porn. It had been an integral part of my life from when I was 13 years old (I am 26 now). I realized that I have a problem when even after having sex with many beautiful women, I would still need to fap to get an orgasm after the act. I also used to be semi-hard with real women and super hard when fapping to porn.
