Sup friends, I literally was finishing porn when I decided to check snapchat and stumbled across the NoFap advertisement. Coincidence? I think not... So yeah, I'm a Christian who started masturbating since age...12? Maybe? I've had a high sex drive and strong sexual imagination since before I can remember, but I didn't start the "m" word till I got my first laptop (surprise surprise). I am a virgin, but I started hooking up with guys in the end of high school. It was great because things didn't have to be weird and I knew guys didn't want to date me, so we both got something out of it. Porn was on and off for me. Honestly, I was really into movies with sex scenes. I'm turned on by the story, so I preferred erotic novels and intense love scenes. It didn't help that my parents were SUPER open about sex. When I got to college, I decided to wait till marriage to have sex and stoped hooking up... mostly; but by then, I was still used to masturbating 2 or 3 times a day. It was bad. I masturbated in a lot of places and some I'm too ashamed to talk about. For Lent (Christian season for abstaining from stuff, FYI), I started giving up masturbation and quickly discovered my addiction. Every year for Lent, I give it up and every year I fail. Recently I gave it up to become closer to God. I did well for 2-3 weeks. Then I broke... hard. In a matter of a few moments, I had found myself on an online chat room and started sexting with strangers for two days straight! That may not seem very bad to some, but it was a VERY low point for me. I was sending nudes and talking with married men... yikes!! I really pray that NoFap will help me. I want to be able to enter into a Christian relationship clear minded and fap free! I'm just worried since I have so much sexual tension + waiting for marriage, that I'll keep falling into worst habits! Thanks for letting me vent! Good luck to you all!
