Need advice on quitting porn cold turkey. I am 30M and have a SO.

I have reduced my usage from everyday to 1-2x a week, but I want to completely quit watching porn.

Anyone has advice or tips on how can I do this, while working in consulting at the same time.

Why do you want to quit? Just curious. 1-2/wk doesn’t seem problematic to me personally.

Not when you’re 30 and only watching 1-2x week 😂 Are you watching for hours on end?

Maybe activate the parental controls included on your browser and/or network to send an alert to your SO’s device/email when “someone” tries to access porn sites. If you really want to draw a line under it, enter your boss’s email as the address to send the alert.

You need to address the reason why you got into porn in the first place, and then also address why you got addicted to porn. There are too many reasons why, and only you know yours.

Easy - just have your SO create content for you to replace it! Talking photos, solo videos, videos you film when you are together, etc. I built up enough of that stuff after a while that I actually preferred watching that to the stuff on the internet

Spend some more time with your SO.. you don’t have to be with her physically. Calls, chat and text. If she’s a nice person, you can make her your accountability partner and trust her to help you out. If not, see help with a therapist and get an accountability partner from someone you trust.

So... what got you to reduced usage?

This seems straightforward. Like quitting anything cold turkey...stop doing it. That's what cold turkey means.

Addicts do quit cold turkey. That's where the phrase comes from... It's not possible for everyone, but it is possible for some.

OP what you're doing is admirable. Much respect. I know many churches have addiction support groups for it. Though not sure if you're issue is series enough at this point for you to want to go that route. Still working through it myself

Hi all,
I graduated during Covid with a double major in business administration and business management with a minor in marketing and magically ended up in sales because I needed a job. I’m about to take a data analytics course to make an attempt to break into that field. I’m currently looking for a mentor to help guide me during this time. Also, if anyone is willing to look over my resume and give me tips on how to make it more presentable for recruiters in DA that would be very helpful. Thanks

Several years ago I was backing in South America and I met an older guy (50s) who introduced himself as a writer & producer in LA for a well-known early 2000s sitcom. He invited me to breakfast at his hotel, we ended up hanging out for a couple of days & he convinced me to let him take some nude photos, which was actually pretty fun. Despite his efforts I didn't sleep with him, even though he was really pushy.
I googled him recently and apparently he's been arrested for SA other women

My long distance boyfriend confuses the hell out of me. Whenever I visit him he complains that I’m too nagging/clingy but when I give him space and go out without him, he gets mad that I left him. Similarly when we talk on the phone he says I talk too much but if I don’t talk to him for a day he blows up my phone and asks why I’m not answering. I think it’s time to call it quits 😔
