Lately my mental health has deteriorated hugely, I'm addicted to self pleasuring and erotic scenes, on top of this I am extremely lonely, I believe this all stems from me not having a father growing up, all my life there's been a void deep inside me that I only make deeper by these addictions, that void being my lack of a father figure.

My parents got divorced when I was 2, 2 years after they got married, I continue to blame them internally for even getting married and for having me right after marriage, they should've waited to see if the marriage would stand before having a child.

My family is Muslim, I am not, they don't know that, I just recently made that decision that I am an Atheist, I cannot do this anymore, the constant relapses of my addiction, my loneliness, self loathing, self consciousness, insecurity, voids that I attempt to fill with sexual acts, I always thought it was my fault, it isn't, I don't know what I can do anymore

ppl say porn is fun heathy normal. but in my experience its just an effective way to achieve tempoary pleasure and numb pain and run away from problems. i have a bad addcition to porn too. i decided to put an end to it in june 2015 and roll on the years since am still trying to quit. quitting porn has been proven to be the biggest challenge of my life but it also the best decision ive ever made. altho i fuk up alot i still go long streaks i probably relapsed 30 times in the last 12 months. but thats nothing compared to the 500+ times i would have done it without nofap. for you you just gotta make it impossible to view porn and stop jerking off. for me i have k9 blocker on and basically just turned smartphone into a dumb phone i disabled most apps, incl browser, yt, and games. in replacement go to gym lift heavy, read some books, meditate, eat cleaner, find some hobbies, work out how sort life out have a step by step guide and go do that. maybe the first thing u could do is quit this site and go to bed there is no need to be dickin around at 10:30 pm

Thanks for taking the time to reply, really, much appreciated, I've gone on long streaks many times, i always screwed up, highest I got was 64 days, and since than I can't even remember how many times I've relapsed.

I just can't deal with these issues, I don't know how to, I can't just shove them under a rug and hope they'll go away, I've tried that, just feel really down.

dont get so caught up in relapsing tho. porn is poison and should aim to get out of life forever. but jerking off every once in a while is fine. just gotta keep going days without and working on bettering yourself. for me ive relapsed hundreds of times i relapsed last week. i know for me am gonna seek out proffesional help one day for porn addiction and there is alot of work needs to be done on myself. but i know this if am gonna jerk off 3 times a day ill never go to the gym or read a book on how to write job applications etc.

no fap has kicked off in last few years nofap reddit, your brain on porn forum, youtube videos out there about porn addiction and mh. probably should go to a medical proffesional also
