  7. Sorry for taking so long to reply guys! I've been super busy, but that's not an excuse. Again I apologize.

    So I wrote down everybody's names and counted up the responses. I've received 28 replies from people all interested in this group. I've seen a couple people mention WhatsApp. I know that is a group messaging app, but I don't know much more beyond that. Does it require exchanging phone numbers? It would be great if we could avoid doing that, because let's just be honest here. This is the internet. You never know who is legit and who is just looking to steal someone's information or hack their device. Let me know what you guys think for how we can do this.

    Also, my original plan was to use NoFap's private messaging system, but I can't seem to figure out how to do a group message :/

    You'd exchange phone numbers to use WhatsApp. PM here or on Reddit works better for me.

    I don't know much about the PM system here. There's a checkbox at the bottom of a new message that says ... Allow anyone in the conversation to invite others. That might be promising. The Kik app lets you search by username, not phone number. That might work. And there's a group feature ... https://kikinteractive.zendesk.com/entries/104602766-How-do-I-start-a-group-chat-

  11. Ok so I'm going to try the PM thing. It may be that we have to invite people one at a time. If that doesn't work, then maybe we can give the Kik app.

  13. Hey everyone! So it seems that you cannot do group PMs. With that being the case, I think that for now we will just keep the group here in the forum. We will give this a try and see if that works. If not, then maybe we can give apps like Kik a try. I'm just concerned about fapstronauts who may not have smartphones, and I also don't feel comfortable exchanging phone numbers with people on the internet.

    With that being said, I've made it 8 days so far. What has worked is not taking my phone into the bathroom or bedroom with me, not lingering in the bed too long in the mornings, and going to bed when I feel tired to avoid staring at the ceiling with nothing but my PMO urges to keep me company. And lastly, I've rediscovered my strength to resist the urges when they come (knock on wood).

    I want to leave this with everyone because it's one of the videos that's helped me the most. It will change the way you think about your PMO urges.

    Anyways guys, I will try to post as frequently as possible. I just get busy and honestly, I get lazy. I've moved my computer to a place that is inconvenient for me to keep my from watching porn on it. It has helped a lot, but at the same time, it means I have to make a point to come and post on NoFap. But I really don't want to neglect you guys because I believe you all can help me a lot in staying clean!

    You can just use kik as the messenger app, it only needs a screen name which you can make anonymously.
