Hey guys, this is my first time on this app, but not my first time trying to quit pr0n. It’s been hard. I started watching it while quite young, around 12 yo or even before, when I started using internet regularly and entered puberty. Since age 15 I use to watch it regularly and not until 2018, when I made 19 years I understood I that I should stop it.
I always postponed this goal because it was so easy to get my dopamine high, I always bragged to myself that I had no addiction whatsoever, but I was lying to myself. Because p-word addiction is real and when I realised it my spirit got crushed. I tried some apps and I opened up with my girlfriend, but she thinks its normal, even though she is against the p*** industry. Talking to her is nice, I was afraid at first of sharing this but she’s supportive, even though my biggest obstacle is myself.
Now I’m here, trying again, it’s hard, it’s nonlinear, but I have to persist, for the sake of my mental health, the addiction was covering my depression and anxiety behind the flood of dopamine it gave me, but I can’t hide anymore and I have to face my demons on a healthy way.
I’m happy to share my journey with you guys, I’ll try as hard as possible not to relapse.
