A 23-year-old Daniel Simmons once realized that he became addicted to porn. He just couldn’t live a normal life or focus on everyday activities. The young man understood that his problem must be solved, so he is currently recovering and wants to share his story with the world.

When Daniel was 15, his parents bought him a laptop, what became a starting point of his sickness as since that day he began watching porn for about two hours a day.

Firstly, everything seemed to be normal as, let’s be honest, watching porn is a usual teenagers’ activity. But later, when he moved onto such pornographic content as transsexual porn and gay porn even though he was sure being heterosexual, that actually started seriously frightening him.

Daniel narrated that his porn addiction lasted for about 6 years. Besides, the point was not only in porn, since he stated:

I’d say I had a porn addiction, but perhaps masturbation addiction was a part of it.
I couldn’t get erections any more with real women when I tried because I’d watched so much porn.
It wasn’t exciting anymore to be with a real woman.
You watch things you really wouldn’t ever watch. Everything is available at your fingertips.

Young man admitted that he felt himself terrible as he simply lost his libido for real human beings, having that one only for porn.
His another problem were sleepless nights and shacking of all body without obvious reasons.
However, all this body reactions started appearing when he realized that he had to deal with his porn-problem. Simmons found a website dedicated to porn addiction and felt himself as he had a epiphany. He understood that he was able to fight with it as other people did.

I did 100 days of porn abstinence and masturbation abstinence.
It’s exactly like going cold turkey. The first two weeks were pretty awful with lots of mood swings.
It was rough, it was really rough. There were sleepless nights. There were nights where I’d wake up in cold sweats

– narrated Daniel about the process of recovering.

Simmons said that a lot of things had changed since he started his porn-abstinence. He realized what was important and began meditating regularly every day to bring his libido and normal life back.
Daniel Simmons said he hadn’t watched porn for about a year and a half.

Daniel narrated that his porn addiction lasted for about 6 years and had almost ruined his life

Robert Hudson, a sex addiction therapist, states that Daniel clearly shows signs of having sex-related addictions. He admitted that the first thing that should be done in such a delicate situation is to stop masturbating for 90 days. So to allow your system to slow down and stop looking at porn.

You’re not cured then but what it helps you to do is notify you’re not using the porn because you’re aroused or excited.
You probably use porn because you’re bored, stressed or lonely

– stated the doctor.
