    Hey everyone! I’ve been watching a lot of videos recently about how porn rewires your brain and how it messes with your dopamine levels, and I was shocked by this. I’ve also heard countless people say how NoFap has changed their lives. These two things have inspired me to reboot.

    I’ve been masturbating to porn since I was 10 or 11, and I’ve been very anxious, tired, stressed, and irritable, especially in the past year. I currently masturbate every day or every other day, mainly to cope with stress, but I feel so desensitized to porn. Like I’ll waste a good hour of my time just for 5-10 seconds of orgasmic pleasure, but actually masturbating (before orgasm) feels boring. Not only that, but I don’t have many irl friends and I’m very awkward, especially around girls. The longest I’ve ever went without jacking off was a week and that was for No Nut November. However, I really wanna try again. I’m currently on Day 2, but I have hope.

    Thanks for your input, guys! I'm a little apprehensive about giving up PMO, but I can't help but think about the long-term benefits. I really wanna make myself a better person.

    @Tiger uppercut! I'll check those links in detail soon, and I'll start my journal tomorrow. Thanks for the info!

    Heyyy welcome to the NoFap forum : ) It's nice to see you here fighting the good fight alongside us!

    Here is just some advice:

    First and foremost please take a look at each section in the forum, there might be something(s) you may find of big help to you. Feel free to post there :+)

    Then secondly I just strongly advise you to be active on your profile(as there quite a few active people in the profile section). Please start by choosing an avatar and then make daily status posts to show you're active and needing support/encouragement. They've also got a neat little feature that shows freshly posted statuses for all users to see. People will find your profile and give you encouragement/support.

    People (are beginning to) love communicating in the profile section..(it should be and is )mostly spportive talk but it doesn't hurt to deviate from supportive talk. It would be great to have you join in and support others in the threads, profiles, and journal, we could always use your help and in return you shall receive some as well!

    Thirdly, You should also highly consider creating a public journal and write about your days in more depth for us members to follow along your journey and offer support to you by way of posting in your journal.

    Last but not least: Good luck on your journey here, make sure to really give it a try with all your heart!
