    Day 12

    7
    I've gone 12 days without masturbating to pornography. I phrase it that way because I have snuck peaks here and there, but have always been able to stop myself... Things are getting better - I think. It seems to get easier after the first week, and I'm peaking much less and starting to be more active with my wife and more emotionally available as a friend and husband. I hope I can keep it going....

    I have no power over the compulsive sexual behavior I urge to act out, and then I have no further power over the craving that exists after I do act out.  I do have some power over reconcilling the negative consequence that always come after acting out.  For instance last night, after much joy from life going exactly how I wanted it to go the last couple of days, after I gave my life to God each...

    Hi, my name is shae. I'm a teen and a female. Most people think that guys are the only ones who battle with porn addiction, and if a girl does it then it doesn't really make sense. I can't talk to anyone about this, i feel so ashamed!! I fully understand what i'm doing is wrong and that it'll lead down a dark path but it's so hard to stop. It's like when you're not in the mood to watch/read it...

    Struggling

    Hey everybody just asking to see if anyone can check in on me from time to time. I recently jumped back into porn during a rough patch in my marriage and am now seeking to try to rededicate myself but it has proven to be more than I can handle on my own.

I don't know what to do. i need someone to keep me in check but i know everyone else will judge me. They probably won't want to talk to me anymore. Nobody i know understands at all. I just need someone, someone who can answer when i need...

    Reading the SAA literature

    2
    The SAA literature equates sexual addiction to this.  First an urge, then experiencing a compulsion to act on that urge, that no amount of human willpower can stop.  Human willpower meaning yourself, your significant other, society, the law, marital obligations, etc.  Admitting this is terrifying, and not easy to do, the fact of the matter is most who are real sex addicts never get to the...

  • At the start no one knew. Then I found this forum. Then I told someone in the flesh. It is hard to do that but really important you do. I needed to stop hiding behind my bipolar. Yes some of it has been during a crisis but the rest has been at times when I am susceptible but not really that high    I have never been to a group but I have involved people I know. Gulp.....it is two church people...

    Problems with porn addiction during Bipolar mania

    I am 50 year old female and during last 2 years have had a number of episodes (getting closer together) of hypomania. I have gone pretty high but not into full blown mania (so far). What is so terrible is I know that I am doing it but just can't stop accessing porn when I am like this. Then when I come down I feel absolutely dreadful as I have a Christian faith and this one thing alone is...

    http://www.yourbrainonporn.com/garys-research-dopamine-behavior  Saw this and since stopping about since a day agon I have been having trouble feeling at ease to sleep.  I wake up and have problems with a paralyzing fear.  How long does it take the brain to stop being so active?  I take prozac for anxiety, but noticed that when I get home from work it starts and gets worse around...

    Hello...I am an porn addict. I derive little pleasure from it except to see various ages, sexes, and behavior that I seem to enjoy with very little sexual stimulation or enjoyment. I surf the web when my wife goes to bed and I really feel bad because she and I could be experienceing our own various stuff.
