I want to start by saying that stories like this keep me motivated, so I hope it can do the same for one of you. I'm 19 years old, studying at university, and I've been using since I was very young. What started with just a picture of a cute girl in a bikini soon progressed into dark, fucked up, internet-fueled fantasies.
So it happened!!!.. we did it after 3 months! was amazing!!! we made out like never before! such a passion! i thank god for this moment, she said she felt really better and a huge weight of her shoulder cause she wanted me naturally for the first time in months.. maybe 8 months... i know right!!!..
I will finally hit the 200 day mark tomorrow. A goal I have been setting for myself for the last 2 years now. I wrote myself a letter about 2 years ago, that I would read once I reach this milestone. I am nervous yet excited at the same time. The struggles has been abundant since the start

TL;DR 26y/o male, tried and failed for 2 years finally at 90 days. The changes are listed and numbered below. Overall feel amazing with still some flatlines and brain fogginess but overall having an amazing time doing it! Don’t feel ready for sex yet but I’m getting there.
I'm in my mid thirties, I used Porn for almost 20 years. I feel very lucky that I didn't grow up with internet porn, hi-def video porn, porn streaming sites and especially VR porn because I think that my addiction would have been worse, or perhaps I would have realized it was an issue earlier, IDK.
I’m 27 and PMO addict. I started MO in grade 5 (age 11 i believe). My step-brother age 13, who came to spend summers with us, introduced me to my first playboy magazine that summer. I can’t recall when masturbation became an every night occurrence but i know by age 13 or 14 it was.
Though it truly is my 90th day on hard mode, and I am proud, and thankful, it has in fact been over a year and a half since I stopped giving myself orgasms with my hand or sheets etc. Now you may ask yourself, did I succeed through the year and half then want to step up to hard mode? Was I giving myself orgasms with some sickly contraption not involving my hands or sheets? Both options would be wrong.
I am a tough case, if I can do it, so can you. I have been a porn addict since about 1982. For the last 9 years I have been in SAA and had many relapses. With the help of accountability software, mostly to get started, yoga, saa, therapy, and determination, I have reached a point of sobriety where I do not crave porn.
In the summer before senior year of college, my grandpa who was someone I was very close to passed away. He was a role model and he gave me soo much motivation through his life and character. He came to this country as an immigrant to give us the opportunity to do something amazing.
I'm on the verge of a product launch and all lights say that it's good. My numbers are checking out, the interest is there and I'm on the verge of doing a big launch that can change my entire life. This shit works.
So let me start by saying, I'm not new to all of this. I've done the research, read lots of posts here. I know what is going on. I've done the whole streak thing myself, but never going over two weeks. Many one week streaks and countless 2-3 day micro streaks.
Met a girl who was visiting town last week. Really hit it off and spent a couple of days together. Slept together the night before she left. I felt much more present during the deed than in the past. Didn't last too long but didn't explode immediately either as I expected.
I am finally writing my success story. I'll probably post in a fair bit of detail as I hope my story can potentially help other sufferers and give them hope that they can overcome this situation, especially guys feeling trapped by weird fetishes which have become their only sexual outlet.
