Damn I thought I was doing it a lot by doing it 4-5 times a week. I'm probably gonna start doing it less though. I'm finding it hard to get a 'strong' hard on nowadays. Hopefully doing it less will help with this.

Ye, I think the only reason I haven't found anything too odd about it is that I'm still capable of staying hard. Only times I've had trouble is when I'm tired, or don't quite feel like doing it (boredom 'bates).

I can't masturbate when I hear people talking, or there's someone walking around the house.

Well...my porn addiction almost ruined the relationship that resulted in me getting married a few weeks ago, so I'm in, even though I've already been quitting for about a year. Definitely feels better to not have to rely on porn to get it up may I just say

I'm weird with porn...I don't mean to cause offense to anyone when I say this, but I've found that I watch porn when I don't have feelings for a girl, but as the feelings diminish, I turn to porn again.

It's quite depressing really. I recently fell for a girl and that whole thing has turned to shit. Since the discovery of the shitedness, I've been thinking about watching porn a lot more, which is sad. I find it weird.

Anyone else not watch porn when they have feelings for someone? I suspect that some/most guys would, but I don't know. I'm just curious.

I think I've been more productive in the two days that I quit watching porn and masturbating than any time this year. Granted there's only been 13 days and I am on a looooooonnngggg ass Christmas break.

This is somewhat similar to your statement, I cannot have fapping fantasies about girls if they are nice... the only ones I can have them to are basically what people would call *****s/sluts. Or hot chicks.

Quote by Burgery

so after watching that video explaining the mental health breakthroughs porn addicts allegedly have when they quit watching porn, im gonna actually give it a try for a couple of weeks. i am in no way a porn addict, but i'm curious as to whether this will actually affect me.

the pit often has no-porn and no-fap contests of a sort as i'm sure you've all noticed. yall niggas have any experiences to share about how quitting porn affected you? or was it, as i suspect, just a boring few weeks?

EDIT: this is now a no-porn pact thread! everybody join up and we can discuss our boring pornless lives and complain about our lifeless penises

Ugh, I've thought about going without internet porn, was going to stop sor the new year. Everytime I try I come across something new and awesome, and go back to square one. Stop for a couple of days and it feels better than ever.
And I have a folder or two of assorted images and videos that I wouldn't find it easy to delete. I've done it before, though, with larger collections of images and videos, but eventually a new folder is created and it starts again.
I want to do it, but don't know if it's worth the hassle considering I'll probably cave.

There was a period when I went 10 months without watching any, but I didn't really notice a difference... I almost never watch that stuff anyway nowadays...

I'm personal stickying this thread. Shit just got real.

Also, I think part of the problem is the way we use internet porn, so I'm not going to necessarily deny myself from playing whac-a-mole if I see some arousing imagery outside of the internet, but I am going to try and be strict while I'm on my computer.

Quote by Cb4rabid
I will never understand why people save porn on their computers.

Because sometimes you come across something that really tickles your fancy and you want to be able to find it again without scouring the internet, potentially to no avail. And I find that if I use something on my hard drive I watch like one video or scroll through a few pictures, if I instead go on a voyage through various porn video sites I end up with 35 increasingly weird tabs open and spend far too much time.

Day 1.

Fapped this morning, but didn't rely on porn. Guess that counts ?
I'm finding the temptation of looking up porn to have diminished already, propably because of that video.
Better delete my internet history though, to eliminate shortcuts.

I've done that before, and I've had bookmarks saved (still do ), pretty much the same thing. Don't see how that's really any different to saving the stuff, it's not like I'm running out of space on my PC.
And I don't need the internet to be working, needn't wait for long HD videos to buffer, and I don't need to update links if things are removed (and links are useless from boards like 4chan), and it's easier to have a slideshow of images rather than click through tabs, and (most importantly) I don't have a 'related videos' box next to what I'm watching, which invariably makes me look at a bunch more videos and spend a ton more time than I intended to.

She sings in one of her videos, she's one of the girls that I sometimes get a bit depressed about afterwords because she seems great and I wish I had a relationship with someone like her but instead I'm sitting there, out of breath, with a sticky belly button.

I watched like, 30 seconds of a video, and then I felt ashamed because I'm trying to quit, then got the willpower to close it.

I'm currently regretting my decision.

I do have a question regerding the video though.

The guy says that porn is addictive because it triggers the pleasure response at a level higher than our brain is used to or prepared for. Maybe not the exact words, but you know what I mean.

With that logic, what other activities could be causing the same effects as porn?
I mean, like the sense of accomplishment from beating a video game. Couldn't you get addicted to that the same way? Or do these sort of effects only come from sex and food and drugs?

I don't know anything about biology so I can't speak for the guy in the video, but I believe one can become addicted to things like videogames in this way. It's not the same, because an orgasm is a pretty strong reaction and carrying on our genes is such a primal thing, but we can still get hooked.
This is how the MMORPG genre sustains itself, designing the games and it's rewards in a way that keeps the players subscribed and wasting their time. I used to play a lot of a few online games, and occasionally I would look at what I was wasting my time on and realise a lot of the time it was really unfulfilling, but I was still hooked up to that intravenous dopamine drip in the form of steel ore or xp points or whatever
It's not only MMORPGs that (are designed to) have this affect I'm sure, but thats my experience.

^makes sense. The video just got me thinking: the world is much different than our brains are programmed for. What other things could be causing the same effects that porn is supposedly causing?

I suppose they wouldn't be as strong as sex or food, but the way the guy described it, it seems like we have unlimited access to way too many pleasures, and that in turn could be causing depression.

Everything. Different people get different pleasures from different things.

Some people like to work on cars, make guitars, tinker with electronics. Some like to drink, smoke and surprisebuttsex. Some like to steal, commit petty crime, etc.

All dopamine comes from the same place, it just triggers differently in some people. Whatever stimulates them, i would guess.

ayy lmao

Although the effect on the libido/erectile dysfunction is a problem associated with porn/masturbation addiction and not necessarily with other vices.

^ok, makes sense. But as far as depression, social anxiety, etc. where do you draw the line when something is pleasurable?

I mean when you're hurting yourself or others, that's an obvious one. But say you watch porn, and you aren't hurting anyone, its not taking up hours of your time, though you do look at it frequently. Is it still causing the effects of social anxiety and depression?

@chookiecookie: would any of those be able to cause the effects that porn causes if you over indulge on them? Or is porn in a class of it's own?

Except for surprisebuttsex. Only good can come of that

Indeed. Most people don't know when what they call 'enough' is too much

I'd say anything that has the potential to become addictive would have the same effect(s) as porn addiction. The increase in dopamine is great and it makes you want more and more, and eventually you can't get enough and have decreased sensation to, well, everything. (the video explained that)

This is why the harder habitual drug users (especially methamphetamine and crack) have a general apathetic attitude. They've completely lost their ability to be happy.

Well would one be able to get addicted to something, and suffer negative efects form something like playing guitar?
