Today = ONE YEAR!!!
« on: April 08, 2019, 05:09:41 PM »
I've made it. Today, April 8, 2019, marks one year of complete and total porn-free sobriety! Y'all, it can be done. Started on porn early in my teenage years and now am 53, married for 25 years come July. I struggled and wrestled to break free, been thru the "try>fail>guilt>try again>fail" cycle more times than I can possibly count. Then one day, April 8 of last year, said ENOUGH! This thing is NOT stronger than I am. I'm done. And broke free. I was semi-active on this forum then posted something that brought an unexpected amount of negative feedback so I allowed myself to get offended and said "who needs this crap?" and left. Guessing we all have lots of raw exposed nerves and one of mine got rubbed. But I'm here now to offer the encouragement of another's success story. It can be done. I'm living proof. I'm out, I'm free, I'm never going back.

Good job man. I'm at 91 days. I was entangled in PMO for over 22 years myself. It's a great feeling to not be a slave to that crap. It can be done. I think we all just need to "come to that place" or be brought there however it happens. Everyones story is different. Congrats. Keep it going!

That's awesome, well done!  I wish you nothing but further success.
Been rebooting since May 2015.  A handful of relapses in that time.  Have SLOWLY improved since then.  Finally starting to see some lasting success since summer of 2018.

I also celebrate 1 year this month it was easy for me not to look back. Been doing hardmode for a year and I have yet to test myself. Just going to let it happen when it happens and not rush things. I am the happiest I have been in a long time and in the best physical shape I have ever been in. Great job sir.

Congrats.  I remember my one year mark, and it was quite glorious.  I'm glad people come here to report successes... when people wander off and don't tell everyone else how well they did it can make rebooting seem more grim than it really is.
