Porn Addiction / TEDx Talks on "Why I stopped watching porn"
« on: April 04, 2014, 06:40:49 AM »
There is a really good talk on the purposes and results of not watching porn:

Why I stopped watching porn: Ran Gavrieli at TEDxJaffa 2013
Ran Gavrieli lives in Tel Aviv and studies gender at Tel Aviv University. He works with youth and adults all over the country in sex and gender studies and in building positive self image in a world inundated by sexual imagery with negative connotations.
Ran writes and lectures about emotional and physical safe sex; porn and porn-influenced cultural damages; gender and power relations; and sex and intimacy.

I am 23 and I have been PMO'ing for about 10 years now and I have never shared this fact with anybody (maybe except the priest - I am Christian) - this is my first time to write about it.
I am regular guy for my age, I do sports, study, work, meet with my friends, spend time with family, party. I had some nice girlfriends too, but even in that time I was PMO'ing.

Since last year I am stubbornly trying to completely reboot myself from this devastating thing.
Unfortunately my longest achievement (completely without PMO) was about 3 weeks and of course my goal is to stay away from PMO for the rest of my life.

After such a long struggle I finally realised what was the purpose for my relapse.
At some point of my rebooting I permitted myself to watch some porn - and that was always the devastating trigger.
At the moment when I permitted myself to watch some porn, I always thought that I have it under control and nothing can happen to my mind. It is the biggest lie my mind can do to me.
It is not a consciousness that push me to the porn - it is my weakened brain, it is my long-lasting habit, I even call it a devil.

For all the rebooting periods I felt like I am building my mind again.
I was becoming strong and confident. My decisions were precise and fully conscious.
I was found much more attractive for women.
I smiled a lot and I was becoming a person that I always dreamt to be.
I love that state of mind.

I am on my reboot day 2.
I feel that NOW I started my straight way to complete reboot.
I realised that I lost too many days blaming myself for PMO.
I had an oppotunity to break free from PMO for many times, but I always permitted myself to relapse.
NOW I wouldn't do this mistake again and I want to share this with you.

You also can do it!
