Why I’ve Been Happier Since I Stopped Watching Porn

“I can’t tell you all how much happier I am since I’ve stopped watching porn…I was so unhappy with my life. It’s a drug, no doubt about it. “

Many people contact Fight the New Drug to share their personal stories about how porn has affected their life or the life of a loved one. We consider these personal accounts very valuable because, while the science and research is powerful within its own right, personal accounts from real people seem to really hit home about the damage that pornography does to real lives.

We recently received a true story from a Fighter named Daniel that shows how porn can never be a substitute for love, and that life is so much better once porn is out of the picture. Some stories, like this one, illustrate just how harmful porn can be, and just how great real-life feels once it's gone.

Hey FTND!

I can’t tell you all how much happier I am since I’ve stopped watching porn.

I’ve been single a long time and still am, but I’m actually interested in finding something special in a girl instead of just sex. I can’t say enough how much I love what you guys are doing, seeing your page and liking it is what made me quit. I was so unhappy with my life, not being able to find someone.

Just waking up happy every morning is awesome. It’s a drug, no doubt about it. Withdrawals are pretty intense from it, but once you’re through it, you realize how awful the porn industry is. It’s so scary to think about how big the industry is.

I hate how we live in a society that is so accepting of that trash on the internet, everything is so sexual even on TV, in music, etc. Most of my friends don’t agree with my stand on pornography, but I’m still so happy I got out of that life.

I’ve been single a very long time, I found love long ago, but it was taken from me. So I’m just being patient for that right one. Sorry for the vent. Just feels good talking to others who understand the stance on the porn world.

Thank you FTND!! Keep doing what you all are doing, you’ve helped lots of people including myself. I’m sharing you guys to social media and buying your merch. Let me know if I can do anything to help you all out!!!

Thanks again!

Why This Matters

Research shows that watching porn can negatively impact self-esteem, and can worsen anxiety and depression. It’s awesome to see that Daniel is enjoying life so much more without porn.

Regardless of how long anyone has struggled with porn, recovery is more than possible—it is biological. We don’t think porn is worth your time or your attention because research shows how life is much healthier without it. Thanks to this Fighter, we can see how true that is!

We want to provide the resources you need if you are struggling, and by shining a spotlight on using personal experiences and science, show that you are not alone and you can get help.
