Rabada66, I made some time to do a bit of online searching. I found 3 sites that offer solid suggestions on how to wean yourself from the porn addiction, and a fourth site that tells you what to expect while going through withdrawal. That last site is particularly helpful because it has a comment section where guys like you share their thoughts, experiences, and encouragement.
I think it's terrific that you recognize you're in an unhealthy situation and want to change. Everything I read said that the route would be challenging but the outcome tremendously worthwhile. As a pack-a-day smoker for 50 years, I can tell you that quitting cold turkey was no walk in the park. But people overcome addiction all the time, and you can too. Good luck let us know how it goes! Sometimes it helps to have a cheering section rooting for you!

The sites, in order:
