First post here, never thought i would be posting my success here
I started masturbating at age 12. Yea I know that’s pretty bad but I had no idea of what I was really doing. Fast forward a few months, I accidentally discovered Internet porn. Started off masturbating to pictures and soon after videos. I used to masturbate 1-2 a day everyday for about 2 years straight. I don’t remember my masturbation experience but as long as I have remembered, I have had PE. Like I could masturbate and be done with it within 30 seconds.
While masturbating my eyesight dropped to -7, had extreme guilt, horrrrrible acne, lack of confidence, developed PE, underdeveloped body, and I could say a feeble mind.
Age 14 completely cut off porn for 3 months because I had no internet during this phase because of travel. During this time, my acne greatly improved, I became more focused.
3 months later the porn started again, on and off. I would masturbate maybe once or twice a week. Acne flared up horribly, life was terrible at this point.
Again on and off I struggled with porn, realizing what I was doing was wrong yet unable to stop at times. At age 16 I discovered your brain on porn.
When I discovered the site, I just went in 100%. No PMO for at least 3 months straight. Acne cleared up like 60%, much better grades, I rose to the top of my class, my teachers were stunned. Girls were interested for the first time since 6th grade lol – and it was just awesome.
Then i gave in at about 90 days on accident. See i have this weird developed habit: whenever i was home alone i would masturbate in the past. So whenever i am home alone for extended periods of time i have the strongest irresistible urges. that’s when i gave in the first time. Acne spiked, then whenever I messed up, I would usually mess up again in the same week.
4-5 weeks no PMO, then 1-3 PMO’s in a week, screwed up & feel bad, acne spikes, and just horrible everyday life in a PMO week.
Then I started noticing other things, other problems I have/had. 90% got worse in PMO week and I was amazed. Around this time I had an eye appointment, turned out my eyesight went from 7 to 6.5 ! I know this sounds ridiculous but it’s the truth. When I went last time, it had improved to 5.75
Around age 17 I went completely cold turkey, from even getting turned on. If I got turned on I would distract my self. That was about 9 months ago. Here’s what has changed so far;
- eyesight has improved like crazy!
- acne has almost disappeared from everywhere (i also quit sweets though)
- no more lower back pains
- improved focus in everything
- improved memorization ability
- better weightlifting and have gained a lot of body muscle. i used to be a stick
- PE i think is getting better. I still need advice on this
I don’t have much advice to give. Really its for all those who aren’t really really addicted to PMO but just want to improve every aspect of there life. I haven’t seen an posts from “casual” users so i thought i might give my story. Really I think porn is killing society. If it continues idk where mankind will be in 100 years
Anyways, hang in there and go cold turkey. The effects are 10x better than “limiting/controlling” yourself. I know its such a faaar away goal but once u start seeing the results, motivation will skyrocket.
