If anyone wants to view my struggle, there should be a link to my journal at the bottom of this post. But let me give a quick synopsis. I recently quit posting because I was obsessing about quitting porn and it was becoming a struggle for me to not think about it. I just needed to get out of my own head for a bit. However I could have never done this without this forum. I am 34 years old and I started looking at porn seriously in middle school, and it escalated exponentially with the internet.
Ever since I started having sex, i have had ED problems, but it got really bad after college. Before my current girlfriend, i haven’t had an orgasm with another person in about 5 or more years.
I moved to Japan, home of some of the most beautiful women on the planet, about 2.5 years ago, and I hadn’t even had a date since I moved here. I stumbled on the idea of porn induced ED and I thought I would try quitting P and see what happens.
Before I quit P, I didn’t even really like looking at girls as I knew if I got with them I would just be embarrassed by my ED. I quit porn about 140 days ago or so, and my dick works again. While we haven’t had sex yet, i have received several handjobs and blowjobs, all with 100% erections. Rock hard. I have also gotten really serious about loosing weight and just completed my first week of P90x2…holy shit!
I still masturbate about once a week or so, and it has no effect on my erections. I am also lucky enough to have found the perfect girlfriend, my Japanese yoga instructor…fucking awesome. She is actually the first girl I have ever dated where marriage is seriously on my mind…scary but awesome.
All in all, this shit works! If you are struggling, don’t quit. porn just isn’t worth it. I actually have a real life now with people I actually care about and I am feeling real feelings. Quitting P was the best decision I ever made!
It really works!, September 07, 2013
