I’m in my senior year of high school, and I don’t want to graduate as f**ked up as I am now. I’m quitting Juul, quitting jerking off, and I wanna be the best I can be for myself, my girlfriend, and my family. I’m new here and I’ve been trying to quit for a while but !!! I’m gonna call it. Tomorrow is day 1 of my journey.
Idk if this is a good place to tell my story, but I started last year, during the summer. I used my friend’s Juul, overdid it and puked my guts out. I didn’t think I was hooked and didn’t start again until I got my own disposable and modded it to use pods I may or may not have stolen.
I’ve been doing it this whole month, and I’m gonna quit before I fuck myself up too much. I don’t wanna be a slave to substance or porn or anything I’ve been doing up to this point. I’m weaning myself off addictive behaviours, after a while I’m gonna get off caffeine and hopefully eat healthier but it’s one thing at a time.
Please encourage me on how to get through this. I don’t wanna die.

English is not my native language, bear with me.
I truly feel like a real idiot.
I hadn't looked at porn for over 40 days. I couldn't sleep last night, bad anxiety, was really horny and had some really fucked up sexual thoughts(porn stuff) going through my brain which honestly made me sick. At last I said "fuck it" and MO'ed as a way to hopefully get over it.
Today I felt ok at first since I hadn't watched any porn and I felt I got the release that I needed so badly, but it got worse. I kept having these nasty fantasies, retroactive jealous thoughts about the girl I am seeing which is slowly consuming me(will go to therapy for this one) and I gave in bingeing on porn and PMO. Not once, but three times in just a couple of hours! Of course it wasn't some vanilla stuff I watched but the hardcore stuff that I honestly finds really disgusting, not that it really matters - all porn is bad.
I'm meeting this girl in a couple of days for the first time in months and my plan was to save myself from MO for the real deal that I had been looking forward to so long, but now I feel like such a loser bingeing and having PMO'ed several times.
I will NOT look at porn or masturbate again, but i'm afraid the damage is done just because of this shitty day.
Is all my progress lost because of the bingeing today?
Is the natural sexual desire and ability to get a boner without porn, which I had regained from abstaining reset to 0? If that's the case, i'm unfortunately back to using viagra once more to be sure I can deliver when having sex.
Any advice or thoughts from you guys? All support is welcome.

2020.10.21 15:09 dromance How to get off (no porn) when your partner doesnt want to give you sex?
I was wondering what a reasonable way to get off would be if your partner is denying you sex?
It's been about a month for me. I dont want to jerk off... that's against my beliefs. I was thinking about bringing up the idea of a "happy ending massage" sort of thing...
I go. Pay. And leave Simple...
Would this be completely uncalled for? I feel like it's not fully sex and also not an affair..
Unless my partner decides she can do it for me...otherwise yeah I really so no reason as to why she would be upset or opposed. If she really cared she would offer to do it atleast. Otherwise why should she be upset..would be controlling and manipulative if not right?
Anyone else have ideas of what should he reasonable?

Struggling or failing? It's time to own it. Nice guys hide their flaws, trying to put on a false impression of who they are in order to impress others. We don't do that. We're up-front and honest with the fact that we're sinners and failures. James 5:16 compels us to confess our sins to one another and to pray for one another. 1 John 1:9 goes even a step further and makes confession a cornerstone of the Gospel - acknowledging that we are insufficient on our own. So, where are you failing? What do you need to confess?
To do this, it would be helpful to get to know how you're doing in a variety of areas. To that end, just as God is triune, he created us with three core parts of our being: our physical bodies, our heart/mind, and our spirit/soul. Try to cover all three. Use the questions in each category as inspiration, but roll with whatever you need to put out there.

Anyone ever been at haulover when companies like bang bros have been filming there? What is it like? Do they just tell everyone to stay away or do they close the beach?

Instead of just starting the class he got way of topic and said, people shouldn't be allowed to "choose" their gender, And then he compared SHOWING his little kids PORN to letting them see a gay pride parade! I just lost all respect for him...

Not to be too gross, but when you type any letter in my search bar you get a bunch of porn and embarrassing stuff, among other sites I use daily. Now this makes navigation easier, but if I'm letting anyone else use the computer it's nervewracking. Is there an option that lets me enable/disable past searches from appearing in my search bar? Something that I can turn on before I use, turn off before someone else uses.

2020.10.21 14:55 duenowuser I am struggling but I wanna change
I been watching porn since I was 13 and now I'm 28. This has destroyed my view on sex, relationship and my own self esteem. Recently I been struggling more since Everytime I hook up with someone I just feel hard or horny as I feel about porn and jerking.
I am realizing I have a serious problem. I wanna do no fap but I also want to have a healthy relationship with myself.
I am really not sure where to start. Everytime I try no fap I just give up after a day . It's been rough and it's a struggle.
