Unconventional ways of quitting porn

I have heard all of the conventional ways of quitting porn. e.g. exercising, being in public spaces, journaling, etc...
Are there any methods or techniques that aren't typically mentioned that have helped you quit?

      These have definitely helped me. They wake me up and help me practice my disciple.

    Literally just stop. But there are different things you can do to enforce stopping.

    Personally I need sexual release and don't get laid so I've just taken to jacking off without porn. I use my imagination and pictures of fully dressed (you know, by contemporary standards) women. This less stimulating form of masturbation has me jerking off a lot less, a lot gentler, and I can orgasm more easily.

    At first I was pretty frustrated because I hadn't retrained my brain to orgasm the natural way. But I worked through that frustration and embarrassment. Once or twice I just gave up trying to orgasm after like a half hour of jacking off. Then I broke through and can now cum faster than I had with porn before.

      I like the creativity but I think I could accomplish the same thing without such drastic measures. Maybe go on an extended camping or hiking trip?

    Me not being able to get hard with a former frick buddy was a serious wake up call. I still watch porn but nowhere near to the point like I used to. Nothing more embarrassing than trying to get hard when you're in the mood and nothing can get you there cause you're not death gripping your dick.

      I've had some serious wakeup calls too but that alone hasn't been enough to make me quit.

      I did fetish porn for about 4 months and I'm still recovering from it. I have zero interest in regular sex anymore.

    I'm gonna be so real. I got a gf and I haven't had the urge to watch porn at all since meeting her and if I did it would feel like cheating. Not simple advice but it's true

      Do you think that would work if I was waiting till marriage?

        I think it could probably work still. Then you have someone to keep yourself accountable for even if you never mention it to her. Another tip is that mindset is important if you can truly convince yourself that you are not the type of person to be a porn addict, you'll stop being one

          Do you think it will be a problem in the relationship if I get a girlfriend for the sole purpose of quitting porn?

    jerk off without it. Rub one out in the shower instead of using porn to get you going.

    Become phobic of any and all lust provoking images. Even the minor ones. Be petty about it. Even something as innocent as glancing at a doll picture avoid.

    Then post daily to the Semen Retention general as a form of semi-permanent public diary. If you can resist the surge in urges and voices telling you to relapse, after a few weeks you start righting the ship but know if you ever slip up you’ll fall back to where you started. That’s the bargain. It’s not great but it’s the best you’ll get.

    The increase in energy and happiness you WILL feel needs to be channeled into something productive or you WILL become a raging lunatic. Beware.

    Im on day 68 after 30 years a gooner and I’ve never felt more alive. My skin looks the way I never thought it could be as well.

      What should I post in the semen retention general? You want me to just write a journal in there?

        Lurk for a bit, get a feel for what trips others up (mostly peeking/edging).

        Understand there are a near infinite number of shills intent on fricking your journey up using all sorts of creative techniques from posting porn to insisting it’s unhealthy to not jerk off using degenerate pornography.

        Post when you’ve had a breakthrough, post when you need specific advice, post to call the shills out. Realize the general is a lot like real life in the majority of people don’t care about your problems and it’s up to you to use your noggin to figure out the truth. One thing I will say is that building an awesome life is sooo much easier when you have a foundation of zero shame from avoiding porn/masterbation.

    Almost no one talks about 12 step programs like SA specifically for this. Had my longest nofap noporn streak ever after joining a chapter (68 days), and when I did break it I didn't even use porn.
    Am I disappointed in myself for not holding out longer? Yes, but it's about progressive victory over lust. The streaks between jerking off are getting longer, and my desire to watch porn has decreased to almost nothing at this point, praise God.

    Move to some countries that block porn websites.

    If you use VPN, you should know it's getting more unreliable to unblock shit.

    Anti psychotic medication for bipolar disorder literally zapped my libido in half. Maybe less than half. I still enjoy sex but I don't crave it anymore

      No. I have tried that strategy. It has never succeeded. I will either stop now or forever be enslaved by my lust.

    Stop watching videos and stick to pictures. It works just as well and it will ruin your brain less.
    Then eventually you can quit pictures too.

        Nah, it worked for me. I am completely off of porn for years now.
        I tried reading that, it's way too long and unnecessary.
