    Greetings! I'm 30 years old, male. I got involved in pornography and masturbation at 23 years old, and haven't been able to quit this habit decisively. The longest I've gone for without it was for 2 weeks.

    PMO has damaged a lot of areas in my life, especially my ability to care for my family, my spirituality, and the pursuit of my life goals.

    I've started seeing a therapist in June this year, every 2-3 weeks. I've come to realize that PMO is just a symptom of my poor self-esteem and self-confidence. Right now, I'm trying to discover a new purpose in my life, while holding everything else together.

    I'm glad to be here and to know I'm not alone. Thanks!

    Welcome to NoFap where you are amongst friends who are here to encourage you and sometimes challenge you but not judge you.

    The enemy is here to steal, kill and destroy. What are your current strategies for combating the enemy called PMO?

    What has worked so far:

    1) Saying my morning and night prayers.
    2) Reading books to improve myself.
    3) Using the NoFap app when tempted.
    4) When lying in bed, doing breathing exercises to make myself fall asleep.
    5) Being cautious with what I look at outside and on social media, especially attractive women.
    6) Forcing myself to focus on the task at hand, instead of fantasizing.
    7) Speaking to my therapist once a week
    8) Making confession to a priest as often as required.
