Hi all, this might be a long thread but here goes. I started becoming a member of NoFap since about November 2016 after seeing a post about NoFap on Facebook I thought it would be interesting and try and see what it is like. After countless unsuccessful streaks the longest being about 20 days I realised my own efforts were not enough time after time I would fail. I decided you know what screw this I'm just going to PMO it's my body and it' s too hard to quit it, then one day 31st December 2016 when I finished my usual daily dose of PMO,I got convicted by God. In my head a voice told me do you really want to continue doing this all your life don't you want victory over this sin. Then I told myself no I've had enough I'm going fight back I have control over my body I repented of my sins cried out to God to help me, couple of days later I got someone to pray for me and wow it was great. These two events completely changed my life my mind was renewed and I no longer even think about watching porn now the thought comes but quickly I cast it out I feel like a new person all together now 2 Corinthians 5:17 as it states "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!" it 100% applies to me I feel different from the inside out I don't objectify girls anymore I look at them all like my friends, sisters and wonderful beautiful being created in the Image of God. I even surprisingly stopped liking hobbies which I used to love before these include watching TV mainly football(soccer if you're reading this in the US) I realised these things were a waste of time not evil but a waste of time.TV however is not something I advise you should watch it has a lot of sexual innuendo and if you really want to quit you need to cut off whatever is a stumbling block to you trust me there's no other way I tried to make excuses you just can't. I also got rid of Instagram for now it was a MAJOR stumbling block to me all those pictures of girls and twerking videos(sorry if that was a slight trigger)but anyways I deleted it I've come too far just to give in and make excuses for a stumbling block. Anyways I thank the Lord God almighty for helping me through my time of need it wasn't easy and I still have a long way to go only because I've done well so far doesn't mean the temptations won't come back, I know feel so different I only want to read God's word be close to God and all the Worldly things(Money,Sex,Fame,needed to be accepted by others etc) have gone out of my mind I feel a great sense of peace in myself and joy and feel very content my confidence has gone up greatly and I just feel Happy . I have told some of my friends about this and they don't believe I haven't masturbated and watched porn for so long, this made me think has society changed our perception on reality so much that when a person stops doing what the average guy does(watch porn and masturbate)they look at you as if you're some kind of weirdo and they find it hard to believe, one of the many reasons I believe society has been on of the main causes for this widespread addictions of young men and women. To end this off I feel very happy about going this far my ultimate goal is to never go back I won't get to overconfident but I know the bondage of that I don't ever want to go back to that, Lord God almighty continue to be with me all my days, love all you guys God bless you all and have a great day.
