Pornography ruined my mental abilities and my memory.

I’m only 24, yet there are entire periods of my life since discovering PMO which I cannot remember. I can remember parts of my childhood more vividly, though that’s much longer ago. If you asked me what P videos I watched during that time though, they’re burned into my brain…

My education seriously suffered as a result of the addiction. I was an A student and top of most of my classes, yet I left school with Cs. I made terrible decisions and wasted my time with PMO, video games and TV shows instead of studying. My cognitive power was very limited so many of my decisions were short-sighted and self-destructive. I remember once asking for an extension on a programming project, only to waste the time I gained again.

The addiction causes so much damage. Let’s break free and begin to heal ourselves.

Exactly. I’m on 11 days streak and plans never to go to hell again.

I had no ability to stay focused or present. I couldn’t think straight. Infact I had a point where I thought I was going insane when I was deep into pornography. Now I don’t have this constant anxious brain and I think a lot clearer and am more present.

This is absolutely me in my 7th grade, the first time when I was hooked on PMO. Doing this stuff literally takes from a person their knowledge and mental power to think deep.:rage:
Now I’m free from this for 4months.

@parvis Absolutely brother - it’s really difficult to think straight and produce results when engaged in the addiction.

Fantastic job in being free for 4 months!
