hello men:

i have not posted here in some time. but, i just wanted to share that i am an adult survivor of child abuse and over the years i have learned a number of coping strategies to deal with overwhelming pain: obsessive eating, playing sports, masturbation to pornography, tv watching, etc. but, i may be in a better place for now.

my weight is normal for my height, 6'2" and 175lbs. and, i have not masturbated to porn in weeks. i have not rented any new porn in 70 weeks, by the grace of God. i just have not been able to bring myself to do it. i certainly have wanted to but, i just can't for some reason. i kind of wonder if i am what AA would call a "dry drunk"? maybe i am.

i am trying to make healthier choices in my life and praying for strength every day. for example, i am sitting at a public pc which has no internet filter installed and i am doing my best not to visit any porn site. i would be terribly embarassed if i were caught doing such.

so that is where i am right now. if anyone can relate please reply here. ok, take care everyone. sincerely,


bec

Hi bec,

It is good to hear from you again. Congratulations on your self-discipline. I just gained 25 pounds to 265!
It is going to kill me. I wish I could get addicted to something that is harmless---I know, exercise and good nutrition.

I will try. I know I can do it. It is good to hear of your success.

Bob

Bec,

Bro, you know I relate. Except 70 weeks without porn. I can't imagine that. WTG bro!

Maybe better a dry drunk than a wet one, huh?

GOOD FOR YOU!

i have not looked at porn in almost three years now, after being up to my eyeballs in it. i know how hard it is, but trust me, with time you dont even think about it any more.

Damn that sure would be nice!

You guys are giving me hope it's at least possible. Thanks.
