I have a porn addiction - Please Help

Im a 14 very nearly 15 yr old boy and im addicted to porn - PLEASE HELP

So 3 months ago I watched porn for the first time. It was partly just a curiosity thing. Im not the kind of person who is in to this. I used to find things people find normal as over the top or wrong e.g crop tops, hot pants. A part of me still feels that. At the same time another part of me is un able to stop watching porn. I have turned from a very good, religious, modest boy into what I am now (that same person yet not).

The first time I watched it was mainly for curiosity and peer pressure from some boys at school. After the first time I was disgusted and I didn't watch it again for about 2 weeks. But then I got a bit weird once , bit hormonal I guess and decided to watch again.

Fast forward to now I find myself watching it every other day if not ever day many at a time. I AM NOT PROUD OF IT. But I cant stop.

I am currently studying for my GCSE 's. I really care about my education - im predicted all A's and A*'s and I still try hard at school. But not as hard as I used to. My performance has massively slipped recently.

I often find myself distracted when trying to revise e.g watching youtube videos or cartoons or porn.

I AM SO ASHAMED. I wouldn't dream of imagining what my parents would say If they found out.

Im worried my academic performance is greatly dropping, I try to stop but its sooo hard. PLEASE HELP.

I just need some support from others because me trying to fix myself is not working right now.

Erectile dysfunction is a common symptom of porn addiction. It is not "********". Also it's not something you're born with either; erectile dysfunction can be the result of stress, other health problems etc.

Please learn the facts before you post inaccurate information.
yes you are right but you get it from masturbating too much not watching it
same here, except im a girl lol. I found that writing and reading what I would rather watch really helps calm my thoughts and urges.. Almost music

how can you watch porn everyday? wouldt you get bored of it

anyways i suggest trying to distract yourself by going out or revising. there isn't really much i could say to help you, apart from: if you really want to stop watching porn then you will
What's wrong with it anyway? As long as it doesn't stop you having relationships, it;s fine. And certainly at 14/15 years old I would say it's pretty much normal.
No one is born with ED... very rarely teenagers may have low testosterone developed for various reasons... but that is very uncommon. I have porn addiction and yes I do have ED issues. I stopped watching it for 90 days and my erections came back... my mood improved... my concentration... abusing dopamine highs causes many negative effects. And the ED side does not effect everyone who has every excessive watched it... otherwise well 80% of men would have experienced it at some point. I also got my testosterone checked and it was normal. It takes a long time to develop ED from porn though you... wont wake up with ED after 3 months... it must have taken 1-2 years for it to happen to me.

i started watchig porn when i was 15, im now 19 and thought i was addicted. dw you'll move on, its because its all new to you
Just keep at it, eventually you'll get tired or worn out
Same,i’m 15 too and i just can’t stop, the problem is that i’m a girl and doing that kind of stuff being a girl is really bad seen... if you find a solution pls tell me, thank u <3
ya boi dylan dazzle doesnt watch he wanks he uses his other senses while masterbating dildog out
lol intresting how was the gcses
It isn't a matter to be ashamed of. Every man now and then finds himself looking at porn. It is a way to release stress. I am a kid and I won't lie , I am 13 and i jerked of 2 months before. It was making me mad . All i thought of was porn. But then I thought if this continues i would fail at exams and all that. So , you should try to resist yourselves or stay away from the source of porn. Like put an applock on the browsers and only use it when necessary. If u wanna see YouTube, u can take it. Or do it my way, stay away from laptop, pc and android, or every source of porn for a week or 2. Hope I helped.

You have no idea what you’re on about, ED can absolutely be caused by this, I’m a recovering addict so I know!
Porn is a leading cause in young people to have erectile disfunction. Just because it doesn’t impact you doesn’t mean it won’t for others. I’ll be honest I’m 20 now and used to watch it a lot when I was younger and I couldn’t ‘perform’ now I’ve gone cold turkey and I’m happier than ever.

Hey ive been where you are - explicit material ruined my life from the age of 13 onwards. I will explain the affect watching porn has on your mind and on your life. I was a nerd as a kid - clever but timid. My best mate was a sex pest who was 3 years older than me and made me watch a video with him when I was 13 - he made me watch more and more with him over the following weeks and that was when the addiction started. I started to watch it regularly almost on a daily basis till the age of 20 or 21. During this time I wasted lots of money on online sites etc. From the age of 21 I stopped it altogether, I wish I could say I stopped myself but it was my family who were onto me and helped me through. For the next couple of years I was banned from using devices on my own as my family thought it would be the best thing for myself but the damage had already been done. I was clean for 2 years and suddenly one day at work my desires came back to me and I was dismissed.

Over the next 2 years my life became a real mess, I was unemployed working on zero hour contracts my parents were already divorced and seperated and I was living with my mum, she couldn't deal with me so she sent me to my dad. My dad had his own agendas and he kicked me out of his life. Both my parents were out of my life and I was on my own for roughly a year (although I had my uncles support). Whilst I was on my own I took some time to reflect and change. I realised that all this had happened due to my porn addiction and realised that theres more to life. I changed my ways and got rid of the temptation by focusing on sorting mysekf out.
By the age of 25 I managed to secure a proper job and infact now im in the best job I ever had as I worked my way up. My mum took me back in and realised that I was a changed person.

I am now 29 years old and Although now im living my best life and have been clean for a number of years and have learnt to respect women the one thing that im not good at is meeting women - online or face to face. I overthink situations and become needy and greedy for attention. The reason I tell you all this is so that you understand the effects that watching explicit material has on you and you give into your desires. It has a detrimental affect on your mental health and it affects your social skills. Your still young so I suggest you stay away from it and learn that there is more to life than sex.
