Welcome Jeff! You are not alone. I struggled for over 20 years, tried numerous times to stop, but kept failing. Until my wife caught me, AND I found GYE. B"H, I'm 5.5 years sober now.

Many have your story and are in recovery now. Read the handbook, stick around. Consider starting your own thread. Keep posting, and NEVER EVER GIVE UP!

I have returned with a new name after a number of years. I didn't have much success with the last one, G-d willing my mazel will change now. I had a run of almost 4 years of abstinance from masterbation but it was a very empty "success" because I didn't guard my eyes and found many other sick ways to feed my lust. Now I'm starting from day 0 hoping for better. I've got this disease and I've got it real bad. I feel like I've tried everything but I know that can't be true. I want to live. I want to be true to my wife and children. I want to stand clean before Hashem and serve Him and not my sick lust. I am a hard-core addict but I'm going to try again. I want 90 days. I want to be connected anonymously. I want meaningful communication with others on this forum. How can I lead the seder feeling like this? I can't fully believe that my G-d won't help me now.

Hey Everyone,

I have been struggling with the internet for a long time now. There have been really good stretched that i have gone through in my life. Right now i haven't watched Porn for a while but i have been slipping on other things, thing like more border line ( like you would see in a rated R movie. i would like to break free from these struggles before i resort back to my old ways of watching porn. i feel like this is the place to do that.

never give up.

I just joined and intend to end the addiction. I have been dealing with lust issues since I found a collection of porn from my parents at age 9.


I may need a partner/sponsor.

You can find many resources for newcomers on the homepage. Just start reading and posting on the threads. You can start your own if you want.
Just look around and find what works for you.
