Arousal addiction...its ruining my REBOOT CHALLENGE
« on: September 14, 2016, 12:44:20 AM »
I have a serious arousal addiction. Most porn addicts have problem with getting erected, but my problem is I always get erected. It could be caused by a thumbnail, advertisement, FB post or a really hot girl in my school. Whenever i get sexually aroused i get erected and that`s it , I have to watch porn to break that erection. I have been trying to reboot since the past 4 months and becz of some silly erection I will watch porn and fail  my challenge. I was challenged to do a 90 day challenge but What THE HELL . I cannot even last for a week .
 
Then i read a few success stories. It seems that discipline is the key to success. I need a motivation to be discipline. I remember i was an obese boy with weight 85kg . I had hard time interacting with my friends because I had a very low self-esteem and an inferiority complex. Then I decided to loose my weight and get 6 pack abs just like the movie stars. Guess what , now I am 70kg  but i have only 4 packs .I had hard time controlling my food intake and I had to be very active in sports. I succeeded my goal because I had that motivation to loose my weight and to be able to interact with everyone.

I think i need the same motivation to stop watching porn but i just do not know how to motivate and discipline myself. Please give me some advise. I don`t have PIED but I do get severe migraines , trembling hands, lack of concentration and prolonged fatigue and sleepiness. Pls someone help me.

I completely understand what you're talking about. When I tried to reboot in the past, there were times when random memories of stuff I'd seen in porn videos would flash through my head and I'd immediately become aroused, the feeling wouldn't go away and I decided "well since it's not going away, I might as well give my brain what it wants." That's the completely wrong mindset to have. It's definitely possible to stay out of it, but it takes a ton of willpower. I've found that if I try to fill my schedule with things to do, things that keep me away from home, it is easier, but of course this plan isn't a complete guarantee. There have been times where I feel like I can fight off the urge, and others where I don't have the energy to do it. It takes a lot of discipline and willpower, but it is possible. You're definitely not alone in this struggle!
