Porn Free for 42 Days!

Porn Free for 42 Days!

A while ago I made the decision to go porn free. I had been looking at porn in some form or another since I was 12 (I’m 30) and was experiencing severe porn-induced ED. Numerous starts and stops later, I finally feel like it has stuck, and am now on day 42 of my journey back to being able to get non-pharmaceutically induced erections.

For those of you who are struggling to do the same thing (and I know there are a lot of you) I just thought I would share a few tips that might be of use:

1) Downgrade your smart-phone to a regular flip phone. You won’t be able to access the internet so you’ll have one less avenue to look at porn.

2) Install NetNanny or some other porn-blocking device on your computer. I know my password (haven’t given it to anyone else, or had anyone else set it up for me) but just having that extra screen pop up requesting a password has been enough to twice kill my temptation. That split second can be the complete difference between constant relapse and a successful porn-detox.

3) Stop coming to Thunders… for a while. This is the first time I’ve been back to Thunders in 42 days and I think it has helped with not looking at porn. People post a lot of porn-type pictures here and links to videos, so by avoiding Thunders I’ve avoided the temptation to click on the pics/links. Now that I have a little more self control I plan on slowly re-introducing myself to Thunders. And, like old Playboy readers used to say, I’ll read it for the articles.

4) Cool it with PE for a while, especially if it is associated with porn use. Since you’re going to want to avoid situations that make you want to return to the habit of looking at porn, stop PEing for a month or so. Think of it as a nice time for a decon break.

5) Get the hell off your computer and go live your life. Go outside, go to the gym, go to a bar and socialize… anything to get away from your computer.

The difference between how I feel now and 42 days ago is remarkable. I sleep through the night to wake up to the type of morning wood that could cut a diamond. I’m in a better mood. I’m less socially awkward. I feel better about myself. I’m more productive. I go to the gym. The list goes on and will only continue to grow the further I get away from my previous porn habit.

Sorry if it seems like I am on a soapbox, but obviously I’m very passionate about this and, to some degree, proud of myself for making it this far and striving to keep going with this.

Now, on to day 43!

Good job. I recently quit weed (Going on 5 weeks) and it’s really amazing how much quitting has helped my sexuality. I was becoming dependent on weed to be able to control ejaculation and get full erections. Now that I’ve quit all of the effects that I thought I was getting from the weed are now just my baseline. I thought it was the weed, but it turned out I was just so dependent on the weed that I needed it to get back to normal. So I can relate to quitting something improving my life recently. I’m also quitting porn as of a week ago. Neither has been particularly tough, I just need to get to the point where I think “Enough is enough.” and I no longer get the temptation to do something.

Well done! I’m doing the same. Keep working on it!

Excellent stuff man, a lot of guys need this sort of encouragement. I need to stop as well, but boy, it is very hard to quit. I will start today and see how far I can go. Thanks for the motivation.

Great! But I clicked this thread because I thought you were giving away porn!

Another quick tip if you decide to keep coming to Thunder’s is to turn off the avatar display of other users. That was a big help for me. So many of our avatars are porn-related pictures it was just a constant temptation.

How do you turn off the avatars?

Upper right hand corner, click More then Settings then uncheck Show Avatars.

Wow I am impressed. I need to keep a note on my monitor to remind me. Is this no masturbating as well?

Homosexuals too. I have George Michael as my avatar.

Awesome thread carrbc!

I can honestly say that porn and it’s availability is a serious issue these days, I’m defiantly not in favor of banning it or any sort of further regulation but I think its important that people realize that it can seriously put a damper on all other sexual activities (ie. porn induced ED).

That said I’ve also recently quit, and been making it a point to jerk off only about twice a week. I’ve defiantly noted stronger erections and more energy and confidence with the lady foke.

On topic, for any one interested in how porn can dick up your love life there was a great TED talk on the subject…

The good news to take from it is that the damage is reversible (due to neuroplasticity and all that science jaz), however the first few days will likely be a bit rough as nurochemicals rebalanced out, not really surprising considering that addition to porn mimics addiction to many other drugs.

Any way I encourage everyone to reduce their porn consumption and reap the benefits!

I quit porn myself last year November, kept it up for like 4 month, stopped the “diet” for 2 months and am now back staying clear of porn.
What worked for me sounds ridiculous;

I bought some stickers and for every day I stay clear of porn I glue a sticker to the frame of my computer screen. It’s a BIG screen so it takes like 5-6 months until the frame is filled and then I go revers taking one sticker off each day.

I only watched porn on my PC so I ALWAYS have those stickers in sight reminding me to stay strong no matter what temptation.
Every morning I can glue a new sticker to that frame I feel like at the morning before Christmas.

It’s stupid but it works :)


Hard work pays off:

No, that is a brilliant idea.

I’ve told about my jelqing to some people. They think it’s stupid. Guess who has bigger dick?
