    365 Days ago i signed up to Nofap with the full intention of changing habits of a lifetime. 32 years of PMO is a long time. I started a journal, introduced myself, interacted and stuck to the promise i made to myself publicly. Last year to say "I'm a porn addict" was a relief and the beginning of a long, hard and often difficult journey that brings me here today.

    Over the last 12 months ive M'd twice and both times with my partner. Never alone watching filth.

    I havnt view porn in the last 12 months at all. Ive no desire to fall down that hell hole again.

    The advice i can give to help in your own journeys, based on my own experience is
    Take each day at a time, do a day and repeat
    Keep yourself busy
    Share your burdens with others
    Be honest about your addiction
    Get yourself an AP
    Get off of all social media for a while
    Install blockers
    Get into the real world
    Interact on nofap
    Research addiction, dopamine use
    Learn to hate porn.. really despise it
    Do what it takes to stay clean one day at a time
    Study your past , learn your triggers and deal with them without masking the pain.
    Talk about the addiction
    Never forget where you where and how far you have progressed
    Reward youself at 30 60 90 120 150 180 210 240 270 300 330 365 days clean

    Put a note in your calendar app every 30 days as a reminder and stop counting each day. Reach it and reward yourself... just go out and fucking live your life. Dont sit and masturbate your life away.

    Thats amazing. Im planning on doing hard mode for a year. Can I ask were there withdrawal symptoms? Im on day 18 and still feel a bit groggy although im noticing my energy is much better and im able to deal with things better.

    Does it take a while to feel different?

    Well done on your achievments

    Even now i have thoughts and urged but i manage them and understand myself better... im in control.. not pmo. I have a choice. I pmo or i don't. If i do then its hard work undone and down a dark road again. One road i don't want to travel down.

    Men this is really good, and inspiring I have to say.
    Sorry if my question is dumb, but what does " Get your self an AP" mean?
    Again, sorry if I sound kind of mean.

    Absolutely @recoome. Lots of benefits.. from getting on better with women, kids can use the pc without fear of finding any filth. Look after myself better, more focus day to day. More happy the list goes on

    To reward my self i booked half day off my job had a cooked morning breakfast before work, finished at noon and spent some hrs in the local spa relaxing. Then watched a movie at home on rental and went out for a beer in the local bar. All planned all well deserved.... every 30 days for one year.
