I'm going to go ahead and move this to Sex & Puberty, if anybody disagrees feel free to move it back.

It sounds like a difficult situation for yourself that you are in at the moment. Are you 'addicted' to pornography or do you masturbate over pornography and are addicted to that euphoria?

Obviously you need to stop looking at pornography since it is making you depressed, but it wouldn't be easy to go cold turkey. We need to find you some alternatives! What do you do in your spare time (other than pornography?). Things like hanging out with friends, music, etc. Find some coping stratergies and use them when you feel like looking at porn. Something that always works for me is to snap a rubber band on my wrist.

I don't think that there's anything wrong with looking at porn. But if it's depressing you and you feel you are uncontrollably addicted, you should stop. And yes I know it's not that simple. First thing: turn your computer off and don't come back to it. Next, try to do something to keep your mind off of it. Maybe call a friend or go for a walk. The first three days will be hard, but if you want to quit an addiction you have to care about yourself, have will power, use mindful thinking, and ask for help when you need it. Admitting to it is a good first step, but please don't beat yourself up about it. Looking at porn doesn't make you a bad person.

Well, I've used to love porn, all the time. I think I can relate to how you're feeling right now.

The thing you have to do is just resist the temptation, or find something else that pleasures you.

find something else to occupy your time.like maybe taking pictures instead of looking at them, just be sure to take pictures of appropriate things.

Their really isn't anything wrong with liking porn. I usual look at porn ever day. You might even try erotic stories off the internet. Hope this helps

Me and my fiance look at porn together all the time. I don't see anything wrong with it. It's very natural for curious people to look at it. Like the others said that if it bothers you so much find something else to keep you busy..play video games, draw, take pictures, take a walk even. There are many things you can do to pull you away from the internet.

there's not really anything wrong with porn unless you're really a religious person and it bothers you. but honestly, im the same way. when i try to masturbate, that's the only way i can get off is watching porn. [[i know that sounds bad, but it's true.]] and me and my boyfriend actually watch porn sometimes together to get new ideas. if you really feel there's something wrong with porn, idk what to really tell you, but i guess just try your best and keep telling yourself that you can stop anytime. nothings impossible to give up hun.

There's a slight difference between needing porn to get off and getting an urge to look at it when you're making lunch or switching on the TV. A slight one.

[EDIT] Ehm ThisIsMyLife what do you watch porn on? mabye you could stay away from that when you're getting tempted. I know when I do I just leave my phone charging in one room and head off to play keyboard or draw cartoons or something.

[EDIT v="2"] Oh yeah Krystianna already said that sorry
