Dude... i feel you. You got yourself into a big hole and you don't see any way out right now. That's so fucking tough...
First of all, when you are depressed and you feel like it becomes a serious condition, go look for a therapist. Even if he or she doesn't believe in porn addiction or PIED (do you have got sexual problems?), they can definitely help you with depression.
Second thing is, don't give up. Your situation is not insurmountable, even if it feels like it right now. You are tired right now, because of fighting so hard for so long. Take time to reflect on your life, your situation and yourself, consult yourself and pick yourself up again. Commit on doing whatever you can on finding a solution and i guarantee you, that there is a way out. Even if you don't see a solution, there is one. It might be harder then anything you have ever done, but it is possible. Try anything you can. If it means you have to cut your internet, do it. If it means, you cant have sex for one year, do it. But again convince yourself that you have to try anything to get over this.
Also if it takes some time to get you back on track and to get yourself out of the rot, take your time. Get back, when you are totally convinced on making a new cut again.

These are my thoughts on your situation. Don't give up on yourself. You will find a way.

Now at day 1 morning facing so many urges.

Good first step. Against fantasizing try focus on your surroundings. Against the urges hug a pillow and watch or listen to something (your brain rebalanced radioshow is very good for that or interviews with gary wilson). When you want to distract yourself with another topic, make sure it is trigger free.
What also helps is to think about 3 strong reasons why to quit, which you can immediately enumerate, when cravings are very strong.
Dont touch, dont fantasize.


Good luck, it is not impossible. You can do it.

I wish you good luck on your restarting today. I'm sure you will learn from this relapse and will be even more capable of discerning your next steps from now on.
Till the next time!
