    Hey everyone,

    I'm a 22 year old male and I've been using porn since I was a middle schooler. I'm not sure exactly what age it started. I've been addicted to masterbation since I started and usually do it more than once a day. I'm pretty anxious and I know that masterbation has been a coping mechanism for me. I'm tired of using it as a coping mechanism rather than dealing with my issues.

    I'm a virgin. Honestly I don't think I'm a bad looking guy and don't think I have any other real excuse for being a virgin. Masterbation has lowered almost all of my incentive to try to have a physical relationship with another person.

    I also have an issue with masterbating to people I know it real life and almost never watch porn. Lately it's been to my roommate who I have feelings for (another issue but it's definitely related). It makes me feel terrible every time I do it. Like I'm not good enough to get with her in real life so I just jerk off. That's what really pushed me to want to stop. The shame I feel afterwards is getting out of hand. It makes me hate myself and it needs to stop.

    I plan on abstaining for a month. I am on day 0 but hopefully this forum will help. Sorry if I added too much information. I felt like that if I can't say this stuff here I really can't anywhere.

    Reboot is for the mind and body, stop pmo and read healthy stuff daily to brainwash yourself: )

    It's okay to be a virgin, I was until 21. Love yourself and your body and stop PM for life!

    It's OK to be a virgin at 22,I was at 21 and only had sex with a girl I was soo close to because of idleness. I've been through a couple of situations you've stated and I can tell you for sure you've now jumped into the right boat and am hoping we sail together to success. Welcome

  5. 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 profilesection..(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!
