22 Better Uses for the Time You’re Wasting on Porn

Elsewhere on this site, you’ll find the porn use calculator and an article that walks you through the implications of your results.

The point of focussing on these things is to get your attention and give you even more motivation to act on your goal of quitting porn.

But perhaps what will hit home most for you is not just how much time you’re wasting on porn, but what that time can be spent on instead.

Aside from all the specific consequences of your porn use, there’s so much awesome stuff that you miss out on when that’s where you spend (waste) your time.

Using Porn = Zero Fulfilment

Whenever you use porn:

  • you don’t become a better person,
  • you don’t connect with real people,
  • you don’t feel great afterward,
  • you don’t contribute anything to the world,
  • you don’t enhance your self image,
  • you don’t conquer any fears or break through any barriers,
  • you don’t solve any problems,
  • you don’t make any progress in life,
  • you don’t create any happy memories, and
  • you don’t create a better future for yourself.

Aside from the artificial jolt of pleasure you get in the moment, there are no upsides to porn use – either short or long term.

It has absolutely no redeeming value.

“But!” . . . “But!” . . . “But!”

Maybe you’re asking things like “but what about stress relief?” Or “what about education?”

Don’t delude yourself here.

For anyone who knows how damaging porn is and wants to quit, using it only leaves them more stressed afterward.

And if you use porn as education, you’re probably going to be way worse in bed as a result, not better. Your partner will be totally unfulfilled too!

In any case, there are far better ways to relieve your stress and educate yourself about sex and pleasuring others than using porn.

And that’s what this article is all about . . .

22 Better Uses for the Time You’re Wasting on Porn

Here is a list of 22 things that you could do with different amounts of time, all of which are far more valuable and fulfilling than using porn:

In . . .You could . . .
A few secondsSmile genuinely at a stranger and feel the warmth as they smile genuinely back at you
1 minuteLook someone in the eyes and tell them how much you love them, then give them a big hug (nawww! :)
5 minutesGive a pet a huge tummy rub that leaves you both feeling awesome (not recommended with piranhas or honey badgers)
10 minutesWrite someone a card to thank them for everything they've done for you and tell them how much you appreciate them
20 minutesExperience a beautiful sunset that leaves you feeling relaxed, focussed and connected with nature
30 minutesCall and reconnect with an old friend you haven't spoken with in a long time (it's only weird if you make it weird)
1 hourEnjoy a massage or other spa treatment that makes you feel on top of the world
2 hoursEnjoy a long, slow session of mind-blowing sex with someone you really care about
3 hoursGo to a meetup where you can connect and make friendships with new awesome people
4 hoursVolunteer for an afternoon and experience the joy of contributing and change other peoples' lives
5 hoursSpend a night out with your friends sharing laughs and fun times and doing crazy stuff
8 hoursSpend a whole day at a theme park or getting in some other exciting adventure and having a total blast
16 hoursRead, watch or listen to some awesome personal development materials and learn enough to kick your life up a level
2 daysTake a relaxing weekend away from it all and come back feeling refreshed and full of life again
1 working weekEarn as much money as you do in a week, and get excited about all the cool stuff you can buy with it
2 working weeksGo on a holiday and forget about all your problems in the real world for a while
90 hoursSpend an hour every day for 3 solid months taking actions that will free you from porn forever
100 hoursBecome proficient in meditating and enjoy being able to create calm and balance whenever you need to
150 hoursExercise enough to make some insane progress in losing weight or building your fitness and strength
200 hoursGo from zero skill in something (like dancing, playing drums, juggling knives) to impressing the shit out of your friends
365 hoursGet an extra hour of sleep every night for an entire year and feel way better every single day as a result
750 hoursLearn, study and network enough to absolutely dominate an entire semester at university

Of course, these are just examples. No doubt there are plenty of other things that you could spend your time on that would resonate more strongly with you personally.

The important thing is that they all make you feel great, they have lasting value, and they create real memories instead of nasty porn flashbacks that keep haunting you afterwards.

Time for Action

I don’t want you to just think about this stuff. I want you to use it.

First, make a big list of ways to spend your time that are much more valuable and fulfilling than using porn. Feel free to steal anything from the above list, it’s cool ;)

Then, any time you’re tempted to use porn, choose something from your list and start investing your time into that instead.

When you’re on your deathbed and your life is flashing before your eyes, you’ll be glad you did.

The Porn Addiction Recovery Guide from Porn Free Power - How to Stop Watching Porn and Overcome Porn Addiction
Testimonials
"I used to think that porn was something I couldn't get over, but I was wrong. Once I started using Porn Free Power, I found it easy to jump start my recovery process. Each of Jay's resources is filled with effective steps that helped me break the addictive cycle.

Additionally, his online calls are extremely helpful because they are tailored to my needs. Finally, he has an effective accountability system set up which has helped me get to core of why I used porn in the first place. His accountability system has enabled me to become more transparent with myself and others about my porn use and has motivated me to continue my recovery journey.

I wouldn't be here without Jay's guidance in the process. Thanks for everything you've done with PFP!"

"For me, porn was a web of deceit I was ensnared in. I couldn't get free. As I've started doing the Action Series Porn Free Power offers, the different threads that had attached to my life long ago have begun to fall away. It's so effective and simple.

You have no idea how much power you possess until you meet Jay and the amazing support he offers, its life changing. Thanks so much Jay and PFP!"

"Hi Jay,

For a while I have been looking for material that I can use to develop a program that I can use in a group to help men overcome pornography addiction. Browsing the internet, I was looking for something real and authentic and practical.

So I stumbled onto Porn Free Power. And I really liked what I discovered. I like your approach, i like the practical way you tackle this. So I started my first group in September this year with 3 men.

PFP is a very practical tool. We use your resources as a group discussion or action (I am very strong on the emphasis that it is an action group, not just a support group) and as homework.

It has been so rewarding to be involved in this journey with these guys. The one guy especially has stopped his daily porn viewing. He is a new person, he now keeps a photo of his wife on their wedding day on his phone.

On a personal note, your resources have helped me with my own journey towards a porn free lifestyle. After I stopped porn, I continued to allow myself some pornographic scenes that I used during masturbation. But it was pulling me slowly back into porn again and it was reading through PFP that I realized that you can think porn as well. And it is as dangerous as watching porn.

Once again, thank you so much for your regular e-mails of encouragement. And on behalf of my group, thank you for allowing us to use your resources."

"Man Im gonna share with you something Ive never told anyone. Ive been waiting for it and todays audio came at a perfect time!

My story is much like yours. And at 31 I became a father. If you have kids you know, if not I will tell you: The moment a newborn enters the room, it is instantly filled with the most extreme love you can imagine! When we had our daughter and I got to hold her, I had the most powerful love-explosion I ever could imagine!

My heart was connecting to my newborn and I was at the deepest level her father, for life. The love was pure. true and so honest!

At that time my brain had it, could not take it! It could not handle it! It had been porn-wired for a long time and thats the anti-love. At first it keep saying fuck fuck, hell hell and stuff like that. Very disturbing to a first time father! I felt only love but my brain something else.

Later on it became even more disgusting, to a level that was hurting me very bad and I was haunted with the most disgusting words whenever I held my child. It took about a year or so to clean out, flush my dirty mind clean(er) I was so ashamed!

2 years later we had another child. I was nervous as hell for that experience to return. It didn't and we had a little boy. I was so relieved! It happened just after me starting to get your mails. So thats my story, and I promise my family to stay clean!

I really appreciate you trying to help your fellow brothers. Mostly brothers I suppose..:) I can't wait to hear from you again, your mails are always appreciate and longed for! Thank you for all that you do man, you save lives!"
Rob, Sweden


Here is an additional follow-up from Rob later:

"Well, I never thought I could stop in six months. Here I am with no big setback! The transformation has been rough at times. My mind is so badly wired from porn. You know theres absolutely no humanity in porn ! Ive gotten married and got a second child since your first mail so the rewards are huge! I still long for the quick fix when im tired or stressed, but my 2yr ord told me I was the worlds strongest yesterday. And thats what I need to be! For My family! Your work is great! Keep it up man! And thank you!"
Rob, Sweden


"Hey man porn free power helped me to realise that porn addiction start with you. Before you start saying you quit it should be for real, I said many times that I need to quit but I failed but after meeting jay I was able to know a way out. Jay always spend time giving us advice and also supporting us. I am proud to say I can see the light and I have quit porn."
Mathew S


"Hi Jay,

I have to say I have found the resources excellent so far. It takes constant reminders and fresh motivation to stay away from porn and prevent little relapses from happening, the emails we receive from you every few days do just that, helps to kind of freshen up our minds and keep us focused with new tips and strategies, now matter how big or small they are.

It's definitely working for me anyway, the odd little relapse here and there but I've pretty much stopped porn altogether.

Keep up the good work man you must be helping a lot of people.

Thanks"
Stephen


"I have not watched porn for almost 2 months now since using the Porn Free Power strategy.This is a huge achievement for me. I have also received unbelievable support from Jay.
I was desperate when I started this, now every day I feel stronger and in control.
THANK YOU Jay"
TP, Cape Town


"Hi Jay,

Thx for all your help. I have found that 'Inner Anchor','Inner Source of Power' that you indicated would be essential to victory over porn.This has given me a porn-free identity,giving NO PLACE to porn in my life at all.I am continually aware that I may NEVER become complacent.

I thought I want to let you know,but have waited a considerable time so as to absolutely, resolutely sure that porn is totally out of my life and this email confirms it for me!!!"
CL, UK


"The e-mails I have been receiving are great. I have been experiencing porn induced ED for years but now I'm full of hope. Day 5 in and Jay has been a real help."
