    Hello everyone!
    I am 19, and I’ve been watching porn since 2015. I’ve tried multiple times to get rid of PMO but in vain. In fact, I’ve tried so many times in so many ways that now I feel exhausted! But one of the few times I’ve had success is when I was in this forum!
    I wouldn’t say I am completely new here. I used NoFap last year and it worked wonderfully for me, I had a 73 day streak, which was the highest in my life.
    But due to my studies and other circumstances, I didn’t have a smartphone with me and had to quit NoFap.
    In the past year, I’ve surely improved, I’ve been able to understand the bad effects of Porn by reading Fight The New Drug and other sites. I have grown a kind of hatred towards porn and porn usage has decreased a lot.

    But the thing is, it hasn’t gone away. Without this community support, it’s so hard to control myself!

    I still can’t control my masturbating. Although I don’t watch porn like before, I am still watch erotic content sometimes, and masturbating to that pretty often.

    I don’t want this addiction to be in my life. I have a girlfriend now, we started in July, and I don’t want this beautiful person to suffer for my compulsive behaviour.

    I’ve recently read ‘The Power of Habit’ by Charles Duhigg, and it states that to transform a habit, community support and belief is very, very important. So I need you guys. Please pray for me and help me reach my goals.

    I am opposed to setting lofty goals because I’ve failed so many times. So my initial goal is to stay away from PMO for 30 days, join a community, write journals and help other guys. Please pray for me, and offer suggestions!

    So here we begin! Day 1 and counting!

    Hi. . . I am actually new to this place (that is, NoFap) . . .and I must say I'm pretty excited to finally find a society of people with the same problem as mine. . . Or should i say a society of people who are able to open up on such issues. What astonishs me about your story is that am also 19 like you. . .started watchin porn when i was 14 (that is, zin 2015). . .and have a girlfriend who i started out with this year July... I mean the last part isn't that important right? But i just wanted to say am happy to have found such a community like this one and most importantly someone with close similarities as mine with this porn problem. Right now i honestly feel refreshed and feeling like a start over with a life without porn anymore.. Taking it at 30 days first and this is my day one and counting.
