    BG_Dude_1981 I am pornoaddicted. I am in trap.

    Hello Guys,

    I am just curious how many hours is your edging in average? Personally me between one and two hours. Not every day. Sometimes I drive my edging to 3 or 4 hours, but on rarely base. Once or twice per month.

    Always when I finish my edging I feel so bad. I feel emptiness. I realize that the girls on the screen even do not know for my existing. :( I feel full of wasted energy, both physically and mentally. I feel much guilt and shame. I am Christian man and I know that watching porn end edging is not ok for my God.

    I decreased it. Before some years ago 2013-2014 I edged every single day. I collected 50-60 hours per month in average watching porn. It caused to me a lot of troubles. All my efforts resulted to significantly decreasing of watching porn, but I cannot quit it at all.

    I am just curious for you guys.

    How long is your edging per day in average?

    How long was your longest edging?



    Thank you for your answers.

    Hi BG,

    I can't say I have ever edged for that long (I always got too impatient and finished quickly), maybe half an hour at most. But from reading thousands of stories from users like you, I can tell you that your edging habits are common. You are not alone in this struggle. There are plenty of people who are fighting this just like you.

    That being said, an hour a day is pretty long and means you have been training your brain for a long time to associate orgasm with people on a screen. So it may take a lot of time to recover. Don't get discouraged. You don't have to magically quit it and never do it again. Most people's recovery stories aren't like that. Most people struggle for a while before they finally succeed. If you can reduce your edging to just 1 or 2 hours a week that is a great success. Aim for that, and then once you have accomplished that you can work to extend your streaks.

    Hope this helps, and wish you the best on your reboot.

    In my 'success' days I was edging to porn 1 to 2 hours per day on average. My record is 9 hours edging :(. After that I was depressed for a week. I felt so miserable.

    Actually when I started with nofap, I felt really proud of myself of not MO-ing, but at the same time I was still edging a lot every day. Only now I see how bad that was.

    The reason for the long edging for me was that I was aware that after finishing I didn't have the dopamine rush anymore and I just needed it to avoid my stress and emotions for as long as possible. Actually I also noticed that after I had an orgams I really needed others ways to get that dopamine rush going: binge eating, watching thrillers or horror movies, etc.

    Used to edge every day from 2 years ago to offset work stress, it was always 30min on the clock, dunno why.
    High stress was 1-2h easy, had few extreme whole day edging too where my balls hurt after.
    Of course talking about dry edging here (no orgasm at the end), which is always purely for stress relief

    I got it down to about once a month nowadays, I keep log of total monthly hours, and make a note what I think triggered it.
    I'm very proud of my progress, and you should be too.
    Edging comes from a painful heart, be kind to yourself, peace.
