7 Tips to Beat the Worst-Case Scenario of Porn Addiction (How I Overcame)

Hello guys. Dominic here.

I am going to give you 7 essential tips that I used to make a complete transformation of my life.
Using these tips, I went from a loser, to a winner.

I was masturbating 1-3 times a day, every day, from age 11 to age 18. That's 7 years of my developmental life torn apart by Porn. I had the worst ED imaginable.
Using these tips; My life went from being a loser, a hardcore videogame junky, barely passing classes, with losers for friends; to pure greatness.

Here's how I did it:

1. I Informed myself about EVERYTHING Reboot-Related

I made sure I had gone through Gary Wilson's website (YourBrainOnPorn.com) thoroughly. I studied videos made by Gabe Deem. I read success stories and pieced together what works, and what doesn't work.

2. I changed my mindset

I didn't go into my reboot "trying" to see if I "maybe" could reach 90 days. I made it so that Porn was never an option, ever again
It wasn't until I changed my mindset, that I was able to fight urges and stop giving in to temptation. As soon as I set this goal, I watched myself improve day by day.

3. I drastically reduced all forms of artificial stimulation

This means I stopped watching endless amounts of Youtube. I quit video games, forever. I stopped surfing the web as much. I put my laptop in my living room (S/O to Gabe Deem). Facetiming females stopped. I stopped watching Netflix, TV and I stopped going to the movies.

4. I went outside

Whenever I became bored, I went for a walk. I read books. I went out and forced myself to socialize (even with social anxiety). I started hiking once a week, playing basketball, and doing healthy outdoor activities. I ate food and drank water more. I began working out at the gym like crazy.

5. I maintained healthy activities, and made a commitment to do them.

Going outside for a hike once is easy. Working out at the gym for 15 minutes on a Sunday night with nothing to do, is easy.
But doing these activities regularly is the real challenge! I did them regularly, and am now reaping the benefits of a satisfying recovery.

6. I got mental support

Finding a counselor was perhaps the most essential part to my reboot. I met with her once a month, and she helped get my life on track. She also helped me figure out why I was watching Porn in the first place. Counselors make you feel like a million bucks. I remember always getting huge confidence boost after a session; and I figured out more about myself than ever. It was a must-have! Regularly checking YBR, YBOP and NoFap helped as well.

7. I saw the light at the end of the tunnel, even when it wasn't visible.

I knew that I would recover. At times, I became so depressed that I had suicidal thoughts. I remember having anxiety attacks, where I had to leave my room and go throw something at the ground. But I knew, in the back of my mind, that it was all worth it. And because of this belief that I would get to the end of the tunnel in the near-future; the near future is the present moment. I am feeling better than ever, I am a social butterfly with many friends and lots of life experience for my age. I have had girlfriends, I attract women (they come to me now it's kind of weird but cool) and I can talk to anybody. For those of you who used Alcohol to calm social anxiety; I feel "drunk" 24/7. I feel whole.

So that's mostly how I did it. If you have any questions feel free to message me. Cheers and good luck fellow rebooters :)
