I have made it 7 months without watching porn. It’s crazy how long it has been. I quit cold turkey and never looked back. I just thought at 24 (now 25) that I was too old to be watching porn. I should be out with real women and getting laid instead of being a cuckoled and watching another dude fuck a girl I wish I could fuck. That’s another reason I quit porn. It’s literally teaching you to be a cuck.
I read about your guys stories about how your relationships, both emotionally and sexually, are ruined with your gf’s because of your porn addictions. I refuse to let that happen to me. This is why I quit. I just don’t need it anymore. I have come too far and I don’t want to look back.
To avoid triggers, I work out a lot. I lift weights 4 times a week and do some sort of cardio (running, walking, spinster bike) 2-3 on the days I don’t lift. If you’re struggling with your porn addiction and you aren’t working out, I HIGHLY advise you start. Not gonna lie though, after I have a heavy leg day and do squats, you can literally feel the testosterone pulsing through your veins and you wanna fuck every girl whether she’s 18 or 45. At least that’s what happens to me. Thankfully in these moments, I do not turn to porn, or pics, or ig, or anything. Exercise will def calm you down to the point where you’ll be so tired you don’t wanna fap.
Good luck in your battles everyone. I have a lot of respect for you all. Your good deeds and self improvement will not go unnoticed. And I know me telling you this may sound like bullshit or repetitive because I only partly believe it myself. I have had a rough and angry last two weeks and I was extremely depressed all day yesterday because of Valentine’s Day. I have never had a girl to spend Valentines Day with in my 25 years of living. I was super angry and was thinking some really bad shit. But I did not turn to porn. I knew if I did I would be going backwards.
Like I said, I know all you guys who are trying to quit may find it difficult. But you just gotta push through it. If you were stuck on an island and you couldn’t watch any porn, you would still survive right? You wouldn’t die right? Just think of it like that. You don’t need porn to survive. Hopefully these aspects of self improvement I have been practicing will pay off and I will end up finally losing my virginity and meeting a nice girl. I can only dream. I just know if I turn back to porn, that won’t happen. Good luck to all. If you want any questions answered feel free to ask. Good luck in your battles. I will be back in a month.
There are definitely benefits. My social anxiety decreased. However doing nofap made my social anxiety decrease even more.
I just felt happier when I stopped watching porn. I just felt like I was too old to be watching porn. I believe I should be going out and having sex with real women instead of pixels on a screen.
I also would read stories on this forum and see how men would get divorces or fail relationships because they’d rather jack off to porn instead of their hot wife/gf. I said fuck that that will never happen to me.
So, I just quit. Haven’t watched in a long time. I’m 25 years old btw.
