Porn addiction

I am in year 10 and have a porn addiction. I am predicted grade 9's in all of my subjects and it helps me relax and so I don't feel as if it has too much of a negative impact on my education. Despite this I want to quit the addiction but every time I try I fail.

What tips would you give to someone who is trying to quit a porn addiction and keeps on failing to do so?

Remind yourself that its all staged and theres no point in watching it. Also remember that sex is nothing like porn. Try watching cartoons to distract yourself. Maybe block the sites that you watch porn on. Good luck! ❤️

porn addiction is embedded in the need for those short lived fixes of dopamine, try find sources of enjoyment elsewhere - preferably not on your phone. this suggestion is not in a way to fear monger you but please do some research on how damaging porn is not only to young people but also to women as a whole, you’re subjecting yourself to a gradual exposure of chauvinism which inevitably leads into extremist misogynistic rhetoric, it sounds farfetched but the alt right pipeline indoctrinates young men far too quickly. there are loads of resources on battling this addiction, good luck !!
Don’t shame you’re sexuality, if you like to pleasure yourself and it helps you focus and release go ahead.

Watch TV series instead and leep in mind that sex shown in the porn clips are not real and not the same as in reality.
Try using your imagination instead!

I watched it once then promised myself to never watch any type of porn again and it worked, you have a have a strong mindset and insane self control
find something else to ignore it such as tv shows that might be enjoyable, books that could be interesting, movies on your to watch list, or activities like going outside. just find a way to distract yourself and tell yourself in your head that it’s bad, build discipline around it and stop it. also reward yourself every time you don’t do it such as getting a sweet treat or doing an activity you’ve wanted to do like baking or cooking or even watching an interesting movie
i struggle as well with masturbation with comes with porn addiction but it’s a way to get out of it, we can both do this
Honestly, glad you can admit you want some help - that's the first step. Try busying up your calendar and take up a sport for example, and focusing your energy towards that. It will help your mind not wonder to the addiction when you have a lot of spare time on your hands. You can do it
amazing

I believe a lot of people are in your position, more than could believe. I read yesterday an 8 Year old (yes 8 years old) being treated now for PTSD because someone What'sApp'd him violent porn clip. So that 8 years old. It really is a situation we should not be in. As for OP's situation, of course you first have to have some will power and self control.Also first step would be Instead of using Porn use your imagination) as someone else suggested. You could try
getting some therapy as that would help. Other thing is, and I myself found this, when you have someone you fancy, love, you will find porn becomes uninteresting to you, it is the whole package that is best, love ,sex and life. (porn on its own really simply a distraction from real life.
Porn addiction is serious and very damaging across many aspects of life. It’s a shame it’s a taboo subject because of lot of people are suffering in silence with this.

Highly recommend reading ‘Your Brain on Porn’ by Gary Wilson. Very informative and enlightening. Also it has personal stories from others who have suffered this addiction and how they’ve got through it and how their life has improved massively since quitting it.

Best wishes 😊

Yes it is highly unfortunate that we have a generation now subjected to Porn of all types. Healthy sexual relationships go out of window as a result.

But I would say that females prefer written Porn (books) (correct me if I am wrong anyone) rather than visual porn (Videos). I think books are less harmful as a lot then is left to imagination.
