Thanks for sharing your story. It really inspires. It's impossible for many of them to not watch porn for around more than 5 years. You know reading success stories like this give just that extra bit of motivation to keep ongoing.

Hey lyon. I've just read the entirety of your journal and for that I wanna say thank you for the honest account and good advices. Your journey has helped me see this journey in a clearer lens.

You were right when you say that this is indeed a full life reboot. I am at the part of my journey where the fog is lifting and I could see just how damaged and unmaintained the landscape is. It's not fun when it's no longer about the dck but I'm looking forward to a much better life and relationships with the people I love.

Thank you so much for the wise words!

Similarly, I enjoyed the shout of mantra at the end of your posts so I made Porn is not a choice for mine. 🤣 I hope you don't mind me rippi- taking inspiration from you on that haha

6 YEARS PORN-FREE!
« Reply #829 on: October 27, 2020, 09:05:47 AM »
Good day RN. This week I'll celebrate 6 years porn-free. It's certainly been a journey my friends. My how the time flies! My entire journey is posted on this thread so I won't explain the nuts and bolts of my porn addiction. But I will share that I only addressed my porn addiction because I'd hit rock bottom. You see in addition to PMOing all day, every day, I'd also started watching TV, porn and perusing gay hook up apps WHILE DRIVING. Yep. Somewhere in the back of my mind I just knew that my addictions to porn/sex would eventually kill me, and likely another driver/passenger in a head-on collision. All that death and destruction because I was on my f*cking phone. So I joined this forum and www.pornaddictsanonymous.org (or "PAA") back in November 2014 and adopted a 'porn is not an option' mentality. Now years later, I'm much happier and healthier although I'm glad I had PAA to work through the emotional sh*t that caused my addictions to porn, sex, and masturbation. While I've had a good run this time, I tried and failed for years to stop watching porn. So please don't give up if you're struggling. That's all I have to share friends. Love, Lyon.

Oh my God. What a legend. I didn't realize that I posted on your journal right around your anniversary. I am definitely fanboying! 🤣

Lyon, you're such an inspiration!

Un petit coucou ... great to see you check in and doing well ... you were an inspiration to me and I just marked 4 years myself just a few days ago. These anniversaries are so important and proof positive of what happens when porn is not an option :-)

Thanks so much gents for the shouts out! My final word: there is very little porn has to offer me, other than a totally warped sense of love and intimacy. I used my porn addiction to escape reality and, like most addictions, it started killing me. Thanks to my time here and my continued membership with www.pornaddictsanonymous.org, I've learned to live in the here and now...without porn. As I wrote many times here in the past: PORN IS NOT AN OPTION!
