I started watching porn when I was 9....

51 posts in this topic

The title says it all. I've been completely addicted to porn for almost a decade. I don't know how to stop, I've been trying so damn hard. The most I went without porn is for a week, and in the height of my addiction I was jerking off on average six times a day (I was twelve). There have even been times when I have jerked off more than ten times.

 

Two years ago, my addiction caught up to me, and as a result, after masturbating, I constantly feel like peeing. This heavily effected my sleep, because I just kept feeling like pissing, although my bladder was empty. I visited the doctor and had a urine test done, but it turns out I didn't have a urine infection. My symptoms have decreased, but still not gone. The symptoms did improve when I cut back on masturbating, but because of my severe addiction, this issue hasn't been resolved.

YES, I've tried progressively jerking off to less porn, however I am unable to push myself after week 1 (If I am lucky to get there lol).

YES, I've tried "forgetting about it and stop tracking", this does work best, but whenever I do get reminded I relapse immediate.


Can someone please give me some advice here:

What steps should I take to beat my addiction?

Does anyone else have the same urination issue I do? Will it go away once I stop masturbating?

It is not related to sex, but that happened to me and it turns out that the pH of the urine was very acid. I had a device to measure it, which is used when growing marijuana in hydroponics, and the result was 5.1. this is metabolic acidosis, it happens when you do a lot of exercise. such acidic urine irritates the bladder walls and causes a constant urge to urinate. the remedy: take bicarbonate, potassium citrate and magnesium citrate, 1.5 grams of each.

do not try to measure the ph with the pharmacy strips because it is inaccurate. buy a digital meter in a grow shop. if you solve the problem you will sleep better and your quality of life will improve

You need to find a therapist that has experience or specializes in sex addiction. This sounds like a serious issue that isn't going to be solved by small bouts of motivation or tips and tricks. You need a professional to help you uncover where it's coming from and guide you to a better mindset.

Dude, at your age you should be jerking off. It's not a bug, it's a feature. Just jerk off once a day or once every few days. It's not a problem.

There should not be any urination problems from jerking off, even a lot. For that see a doctor.

Jerking off once a day at your age is not an addiction. It's par for the course.

Jerking off more than once a day is excessive and a waste of time, so keep it to once a day.

@Leo Gura Totally disagree. 
 

OP is clearly stating this is an issue and addiction for him and it’s ruining his life. Just look at all the articles on the damaging effects of porn on the brain, but I would also say the spirit. 
 

Also there’s tons of proof and spiritual traditions that use the retaining of semen for higher energy and motivation. 
 

When you REALLY quit watching porn and hold in your semen it enchances life vividly and you get much better at game. Porn causes ED

If porn didn’t have detrimental effects of my motivation, happiness, and life, I would fucking love to watch it daily. But I’ve gathered far too much evidence proving that it’s a horrible habit and robbing me of potential and joy

Dude it is okey, when I was a teenager I used to jerk off multiple times a day, My libido as a teenager was through the roof. Your libido will fall with time but also don't over do it. Go out soicialize, dream, love life.

@UpperMaster you probably really need to invest some money to get some serious help.

Like some course specifically designed to help with this issue, like what Dr. Trish Leigh (porn brain rewire) offers, maybe combined with the possibility of talking to someone 1on1.

You really need to know what kind of life you want and what kind of misery awaits you if you keep going down that route. Without a clear goal in mind you won't find the motivation to change your habits.

You need a community of like-minded people who support you (morally) and offer help/advice.

And there are likely other emotional issues linked to your porn addiction which need to be addressed too, because they can contribute to the perpetuation of the cycle.

Porn increases my motivation, happiness, and life.

Porn is amazing, and to not know how to appreciate it is a travesty to mankind.

For some people it is and for others it's not.

It's not a matter of knowing to appreciate something. For some people it simply has detrimental effects on the function of their brain, like it promotes social anxieties and other weird emotional disturbances.

It's not perfectly understood yet, but these problems seem to be more common for people who started watching porn very early.

I haven't watched porn for about 6 months now and I'm more well than ever before.

Actually, it is.

If you were truly conscious of the beauty of porn, you would cry.

You do not understand what porn is. You're just wanking to it like a monkey on crack and then complaining.

Hahaha you're the best Leo! 

High consciousness porn.

No, I think here you are being a bit ignorant right now.

There is already a good amount of research on the effects of porn on brain health.

And trust me, my former porn sessions were intimate acts of self love, I even used some oil and lit a candle bro! ?

I could make an entire course on how to appreciate sex. And it would change your whole life.

But I got better things to do.
