My story about porn addiction

I turn 19 in a month. At the age of 15 I saw porn for the first time and became addicted to it, I began to spend several hours a day on porn sites and masturbate every day. Last summer I realized that I was addicted to porn, at that time I had already watched it for about 2.5 years. My dick stopped getting up on girls in everyday life and stopped standing on regular porn. I decided that I needed to start abstaining from porn and masturbation, but each time it ended in a relapse. Over time, my series increased, but it all ended in failure and relapse. It all lasted 5 months and in the end I decided to completely stop with porn and masturbate. Since December 20, I have abstained and this is the longest series, already 173 days. At the beginning of this series, 2 months, I fantasized about sex every day, but then I realized that this is not good. Until now, sometimes these thoughts haunt me, but I try to distract myself and not think about it. Everything is also not worth it for me, but I do not lose hope that one day everything will be fine. Based on my condition, I need a minimum of 9 months without PMO, but it seems to me that even more time, 12 months, will be needed. Give some advice and share your stories.

173 days! Rlly respect your perseverance bro. I’m on my 17th day. The weekdays are fine but I get bad urges on weekends. Do you have any advice for me?

It’s summer and I have a lot of free time. Now I have exams and I’m preparing for them, but in my free time I try to keep myself busy with something. I do boxing, so I train 2 hours a day. I have no one to walk with. I sit at home and read books so as not to break loose, I find information about porn addiction and watch videos about it. All I can advise you is to go out more and do not sit at home, if you are not busy and you have thoughts of a breakdown, then get ready and go for a run, hang out with friends, but do not sit at home. Distract yourself with something, even if you sit at home all day, then do not sit in vain, feed your brain with new information. Start reading books, start playing sports. I had relapses for 5 months and during this time I trained my willpower. Now when I want to watch porn, I stop myself. Train your willpower. I have PIED and every time I want to watch porn, I remember about it and stop myself.
