    I was just an average guy with a normal lifestyle, until one day, one of my friends introduced me to the world of porn. The difference between him and me. He realised early and stop. I just went on and on.

    It was a wild moments at start, and then after than, it became unliveable. The life totally tarnished.

    I, who had tons of friends and was popular, my friends started avoiding me. I didn't know why?. I started avoiding people. Why? Didn't know. Just some unusual fear i never felt before. I never knew what planted this fear?.

    I still used porn, but i didnt knew it was the reason, i was earning bad grades, having anxiety and living life with no friends. Porn was the reason my high school time got destroyed. I remember, my sister's friends used to come at my house to hang out. My parents didn't knew any of my friends and asked me one time to invite them. When i said nothing, my parents knew the meaning of my silence

    But finally at May 11, 2017, i realised that porn is bad, and decided to burn this vehicle of disgust and shame forever. It is the hard journey, with urges and flashbacks of those plummeting videos now and then, but i kept myself reminding that, this thing makes its user a victim, a lowlife.

    It was only 3 months nofap, when one of my classmates in college said to me that i would have been popular in school. I was shocked to hear those words.

    I felt such a confidence and energy in me. I made more friends than ever. I was making everybody laugh. Girls come to me and saying me hi and hugging me. Guys invited me to play pool with them. It was amazing

    Now i am 1 year sober from porn. I like to say that, NOFAP the best thing i did. I hate myself for indulging in porn and living a shameful life, full of loneliness and anxiety. There are sometimes, when i feel urges.

    But still, life's better than ever before.

    Hey RontheMan, congrats on your 1 year streak. Your story sounds similar to me growing up. I think stopping pmo really helps one to connect with their inner self, their core self, and that self is shared by all people so we are able to open up to others more. I think the key to pmo recovery is sort of a triangle of quitting pmo for one, but also healing oneself emotionally, and connecting with other healthy people socially and these will all build on each other for a life of success and happiness. However, if one tries quitting pmo without healing emotionally or connecting with others socially, I don't think they will be able to attain real success and will continue to relapse. Good job again and thanks for the inspiration.
