Young and scared?


I'm an 18 year old male, and I've been having a few issues getting it up, and honestly, I'm a bit worried. I want to enjoy my youth and i'm afraid it won't be possible. I'm hoping for any advice anyone can give as to how to fix the issue.

I first realized there was an issue about a year ago. I was dating a girl for the first time, and one night we tried to get intimate but I was absolutely limp. Granted I was very, very nervous (this was the first time and YES I very much regret rushing it). But clearly there was/is an issue.

Anyway, when I was younger, I watched way too much porn. I have no doubt that this is at least a big part of the issue. Since then I've realized that that's not healthy and I've tried to throttle myself. I'd like to try to cut it out completely, but its hard. I've gone through ups and downs and would say I've improved, but really, without porn, my erections are weaker than I'd like. And then if I factor in the nerves that I'll undoubtedly have when I'm with a girl, and I wonder if I'll even be able to have sex without drugs or alcohol being involved, which is not something that I want to be dependent on.

Beyond that, its become a mental game. I'm an attractive guy and I get a good amount of interest from women, but I don't even want to put myself out there sometimes for fear of embarassing myself, and I know that that can't be healthy at all. I've kissed a couple girls since the incident, but a lot of my confidence is just gone. Again, I want to enjoy my life while I'm young and I'd hate to have this issue going off to college in a few short months.

If anybody could provide any insight, any tips, any support, it would be much appreciated.
