Porn Addiction / Time to start again.....
« on: February 02, 2017, 10:52:50 AM »
Well, firstly I'd like to reintroduce myself. I'm Ben and I was on this site around two years ago when my wife found out about me still using porn and how I truly wanted to break this habit of a lifetime. Two years have passed and my wife and I are no longer together (nothing to do with my addiction), we split up in around October last year (2016) and being a single guy again I have slipped back into old, bad habits. Mainly thinking "Well what single guy doesn't use porn??" But, I am coming to the realisation that it is becoming a problem again, and one that I really want to get out of. The first thing I did was clear all my browser history and take myself off of a couple of "Hook up" sites and then I downloaded an app for my phone called NF Companion, which basically tells me how long since my last relapse, has motivational quotes and videos to help you keep going and you can also keep a journal on there of any thoughts or feelings during your recovery. So far it has only been two days, but I thought along with the app, coming back on here for guidance and general support would be the best way forward. Thanks for taking the time to read my introduction and I hope to get a lot of support from fellow rebooters, as well as offering help where I can to those who need a bit of motivation, Ben.

Porn Addiction / Still haven't looked at porn but....

My recovery has been going really well, until now  :(  Don't feel any cravings whatsoever for porn so I'm thinking that's a good thing. However, I have substituted porn by using an app called Omegle (chat app) and chatting to girls on there which obviously leads to MO.  There's no pic swapping, just chat so I feel really bad that I'm "getting myself off" to just words on a screen.  I've since deleted the app, but I'm really scared that I'll fall back into old habits and download it again.  Also, I haven't been on here for a while as I though that I was doing so well, so maybe I should go back to basics and log into here every day and get some encouragement as it's really helped me with the porn.  I've reset one of my counters, but as I said I'm glad that I haven't fallen back into watching porn. Oh well, let's start again.  Thanks for listening guys!!

Porn Addiction / I succumbed to temptation
« on: February 26, 2015, 12:01:22 PM »
Well I thought I was doing really well.  Thus far I'd had no urges and almost got to the 30 day mark at my first reboot attempt. However, last night I went to bed early as I work shifts and was up early this morning for work.  Didn't feel particularly horny, until I lay down and had this very sexual thought about a girl I used to work with years ago.  Totally out of the blue, I don't have contact with this girl at all anymore it's really weird. Anyway, one thing led to another and I began to "stir downstairs" and because I wasn't directly looking at porn I thought that satisfying myself would be alright. My wife was still downstairs watching telly, so I gave in to the urge. Afterwards, I didn't feel bad as such more relief. I knew I wasn't breaking any rules as I didn't use porn, but on the other hand my original target was to only O with my wife. I am going to reset my counter as it's the start of March in a couple of days and I'm determined to reach the 30 days without porn or masturbation of any kind (apart from when with my wife).

Any encouragement would be greatly appreciated guys. I know I screwed up and I'm determined to conquer this addiction.

Porn Addiction / Anyone else with these feelings???

Hey guys,

Love checking in these forums to see what's new and how others are doing with their reboot  :)  Just wanted to ask, and I in no way mean this offensively as I'm behind all of you 100%, but when I read a post where a guy has relapsed and says how crappy he feels etc. that really spurs me on to keep going.  It's not exactly schadenfreude, but I'm guessing that if a guy wrote "I relapsed today and it was the best orgasm I've ever had, God I felt amazing!!!!" that would make it much more difficult for me to keep going.  Does anyone else see what I'm getting at??

Again, I just want to reiterate that I really love hearing about the success stories too as that also motivates me to carry on and I love the comradery and unity that we all share on this forum, it just also seems the relapses also help me in my journey.

Porn Addiction / 90 days reboot question
« on: February 10, 2015, 05:26:08 AM »
Hey guys,
I've joined this group in order to beat my online porn addiction. I'm a married man and my wife finding out not only extremely upset her, but made me feel like the world's worst human being  :( I'd just like to ask that if having sex with my wife would interrupt my reboot? I'm trying to get to 30 days, then eventually 90 days porn free. I'm feeling pretty positive about it at the moment, no cravings or urges thus far. Any guidance or advice would be greatly appreciated. Stay strong fellas!!
