    Hi all. Where do I start I'm a 49 year old male. I have masterbated since puberty daily . I have attended SLAA in the past it helped but came to identify that my addictive pattern was around online chat rooms and masterbation. My life is a #&$& mess . Kicked out by my partner I am on my knees. Reading the information pages reads like my diary .

    Doesn't matter what have happened in your life in the past, what matters is what you are doing now.
    Staying off PMO is the very first step in making your life better, take it one step at a time and be easy on yourself.

    And no matter what, keep you head high! Whatever happened happened, do not be too hard on yourself, you can make a better life for yourself. What's important is that you try your best.

    Welcome aboard brother.

    HI sir... I really feel for your situation & it sucks were you are now... But... Put masturbation/porn to the side for the moment, I feel you need professional help with counseling ect & accommodation unless family members are helping you & perhaps approach the pmo later on, as situation your in now is only going to exacerbate the masturbation thing...
    I hope this is of help & you need to get on your feet my friend... All the best for you... Rob.

    I am "so glad" to hear that... We don't want you in a destitute/homeless situation & have emotional stuff on top of that as well is not good... Praying for you my friend... Rob.

    I started NoFap 5 days ago having just lost the love of my life to my addiction after she found out I had been cheating on her online via messaging and using porn nonstop. I am happy to hear you have a roof over your head and have people to support you. Have you considered starting a journal here on the forums? You can even link it on your profile. I tell myself I have to update it everyday with both a general status check and some introspection into PMO's effects on my life.

    Even if you feel like your life is a mess today, that doesn't mean you can't make your life a better tomorrow. It might not be perfect, might not even be much better than today, but it's a step in the right direction. Welcome to the community, let's take that first step on the long journey to our better selves.
