One thing that has helped is whenever I get an urge, I'll open a porn tab, verbally announce "this is counterproductive. You don't want this," then close the tab.

It sounds like your sleep issues are fucked. Caffeine/alcohol use?

I can't recommend the light box enough...it's subtle, but I find my mornings happier and my evenings relaxing.

Magnesium supplementation varies....take at least one pill of the magnesium recommended here, see how you feel, increase dosage, repeat. Max dosage would be 800mg/day.

That same warning sign also made me realize that porn was an issue. I was more interested in watching porn than the act of fapping itself, and I could spend hours hunting for the perfect scene (hence why I'm more concerned with staying porn free for now, although kudos to you and others who are doing both).

I admire your willpower with the porn tab method. I don't think I could pull that off in the long run. Personally, I've found that eventually I'll cave when I have easy access to it, so I'm better off restricting my internet somewhat to lessen the temptation -- at least until I've got this under control.

And yes, my sleep is fucked up right now. Alcohol use isn't a problem, as I've cut back A LOT. Caffeine is definitely more of an issue. The fact that I'm always tired leads me to drink way more caffeine than I should.

I appreciate the response, and I'll follow your advice by eliminating caffeine after noon. Also going to toss that magnesium in with my next order of optizinc. I'll probably hold off on the light box for now since funds are tight, but now I have an idea of what I want for xmas!
