Day 5 – Attempt #3

I was going to wait until I had reached at least Day 7 before I posted again, but felt that I needed to discuss some changes.

Day 0

Today marks Day 0 of my last of many, many, many (many) attempts at ending my porn addiction. August 22nd, 2011, 18:00 (UTC+02:00), to be exact. My goal is to go at least 6 months without porn, masturbation or orgasm (excluding sex). This is my story.
