    First of all

    Hi to everyone reading this thread. I'm new to NoFap and thought I should present myself, so here we go.

    Who am I?
    I am 23 years old and I live in Spain (so not native English xd). I'm catholic, and right now I am still a seminarian (someone who is preparing to be a priest), although I'm working as an electrician (life is complicated xd). I like meeting up with friends, reading good books, DIYing, biking...

    My history
    I fell into PM when I was 16, started it just for curiosity, but soon it became an addiction. Discerning with a priest, I felt called to priesthood, and promised myself I would stop PM before entering the Seminar. I entered into the Seminar with 18 years old, but didn't stop my addiction.

    During my third year as a seminarian, I fully confessed my addiction for the first time to the preacher of the spiritual exercises. It was the first time in my life I told about it to someone. I felt truly forgiven and it was then when I really discovered the love of God, and what had PM done to my life: it made me slave and live incoherently with my life choice.

    I decided I wanted to quit PM forever and tried hardly by myself. Four years before isn't an addiction anymore, but I still keep falling into it every few weeks. Right now I'm in a stage of redefining my life (not living in the Seminar anymore, although I'm still considered one of them), trying to find who I am. Today morning I fell again and spent all the day thinking about it. I've resulted to cut out PM forever and after knowing NoFap since few years ago, finally I decided to join NoFap!

    Why do I want to overcome PM?
    Because I want to be really free and also think that sin hurts myself, people around me and God. PM also affects myself emotionally.

    Which are my triggers?

    • Feeling lonely or tired
    • Dreaming/imagination

    How am I going to do it?
    • Talking with my spiritual director.
    • Praying every day.
    • Joining NoFap challenges and groups and tracking my progress trough a NoFap journal.

    Let's be free!
    Thanks for spending your time reading this introduction!
