Welcome! What about masturbation? Is it something you struggle with? Because working on one without the other can definitely make it more difficult. Lusting is lusting. 

B"H, no. "Just" pornography. 

Wow! How?

Seems like a lot of people have that problem, but for me there’s just no lust for it, B”H. Just not a problem.

Welcome. You came to the right place. Stay connected and iyh you will break free.  What are your triggers?

It could be anything, such as negative feelings (being angry, tired, lonely, depressed, stressed, or not getting outside enough), being alone with an unfiltered device (which I obviously try to avoid), or (more often) just finding myself lusting for porn after a clean streak, and then eventually falling. 

Exercise is a good reliever for the triggers you mentioned. When the heart rate is raised, the brain is flooded with the same endorphins (calming agents) that pornography watching provides. Try to set up a scheduled time for consistent exercising. BH It worked for me. 

Absolutely! It definitely helps when I do it; trying to do so more often.

Not writing this to brag, but to celebrate success, and to remind myself that it is possible to beat this. I just spent 4 out of the past 5 weeknights (not counting Friday night, which isn't shayach for hopefully obvious reasons) with an unfiltered device (not mine) that was left out after everybody went to bed, and I STAYED CLEAN FOR EVERY ONE OF THEM. Didn't fall once. Hopefully this is a harbinger of things to come. Hashem should keep bentching us all with Hatzlacha.

 Awesome!!!! Always celebrate. The happiest side is the one that wins.

Brag away! Use your accomplishments to propel you to further heights.

Brag away as long as it makes you stronger, if it makes you weaker and more lax, then you know you aren't doing the right thing.
