    486daysandstruggling New Fapstronaut

    Hi Everyone,

    New to this forum but not new to PMO and NoFap in general. I've been struggling to end my relationship with porn for over a decade now. Like alot of people on this site, I was introduced to porn/masturbation at a very young age and quickly began using it in an unhealthy way. I found out about the "Your Brain On Porn" mini-series at the age of 20 or 21 after being unable to perform sexually with a young woman I was seeing at the time. This was about 10 years after my relationship with porn began. It then took me almost another 10 years to achieve a NoFap streak longer than 21 days. I relapsed at 47 days just before covid lockdown and went back to my old habit until July of 2021 when I started dating my current girlfriend. I relapsed again at the end of September 2021 and began my current streak on October 1, 2021. It has not been a "perfect" streak and I have definitely "peeked" here and there and engaged in a sexual relationship with my girlfriend at the same time but sitting here and being able to say that I have gone 486 days without masturbating to porn is an earthshattering success for me.

    I am just now creating a username on this site because my younger brother is now embarking on a nofap journey of his own and, from our conversations, I realize that I may be able to be of service and assistance to others while also learning from those that have accomplished more than me in this journey.
