I'm a 49 year old healthy male, happily married to a gorgeous woman, father of 3 great kids, religious and active in my church, and I've M on a fairly regular basis since the age of 12. I've also been looking at porn off and on for most of this time, and with the advent of high speed internet my viewing of porn has become a regular occurance but have never gone off the deep end with it mostly because of my faith. Around 11 months ago, I began to struggle with performance. I thought it might be Low T because I'm getting older so I went and got tested but all tests came back normal. I stopped M for a while mostly because it was no longer giving me the release it once did and my problem mostly went away, which is something that I made note of but didn't really look into any further. During the past few months my MPO habit picked up. I went to Vegas at the beginning of November and was having dinner with some friends when our waitress came by and let me tell you, she was playboy material and she was dressed to show her assets. Yet her presence and seeing her did absolutely nothing for me and it was at that moment that I realized that I had a problem. That night I went online and in my research stumbled on the YBOP website, and it really opened my eyes to the magnitude of how this behavior can affect so many aspects of my life. It has now been a month since I've PMO but it has been a rough . I wanted to start this thread in hopes that my sharing will be an encouragement to others as well as a support for me as I battle this. The reason I titled my thread "Could This Be The Answer To My Problem?" Is because I have spent a lifetime being tired and living like my brain is in a fog. I've been tested for everything- Lyme disease, chronic fatigue, restless leg syndrome, sleep apnea, thyroid.....you name it, the Dr's have looked into it. In the end they just say that I'm normal and I fell this way because I work too hard. I'm starting to wonder if maybe my tiredness/brain fog could be related to my masturbation habit? Anyone have any ideas?
