Porn use started when I was twelve and has been with me more or less my whole adult life, even while in relationships.I was ashamed of the time I had lost to the habit but don't feel so bad about this now since making these changes.
Growing up in our generation it consisted of naked images in a magazine.
I watched the series of vids and the brain-chemistry explanation at YBOP and this was the turning point and it gave me the tools of understanding to help to fight a serious addiction.
Today, I am 70 days free of P/M/O and accomplished this by also cutting out Fap completely - extreme measure but I see it all has to do with resetting the brain's Dopamine patterns that YBOP helps to explain.
I was determined to change but sensed I needed some kind of additional support, especially during the first few weeks.
