    Hello fellow fapstronauts. Im new to nofap. Ive been telling myself ill quit for over a year now and recently i realized what ive been doing isnt going to work, so i made an account here as well as subscribed to a couple youtube channels...
    Im currently on one of my longest streaks ever, at 7 days, and im wondering which kinds of withdrawal symptoms i should be getting prepared for. This weeks been easier than i was expecting so i know its got to get harder from here

    Also, ive had moderate acne on my cheeks and temples for a couple years now. Various products haven’t really helped me. Has anyone noticed a difference with their acne?

    Hi @A2496

    First, good that you are here. As you get started on your journey, you likely have many questions.
    If you haven't already done so, please read the "Getting Started Guide" available on this site's (noFAP) home page. It has answers to many questions you may have, and includes a lot of information to help you get started on your journey of healing. Also have a look at the "Glossary" (look for it on the toolbar at the top of this page) for definitions of abbreviations and terms that may be unfamiliar to you.

    Make some time to think hard about what your really need to accomplish here. Whatever your goals and reasons for pursuing them are fine, as long as its something you really believe in and are willing to work hard to progress towards. Sometimes writing out goals and "the reason why I am here" helps clarify thinking. After you have your goals clear in your mind, think about how you will keep them constantly fresh in your mind. One way is to read your written goals twice - or more - times each day, every day. When we lose sight of our goals and reason for being here, motivation weakens and resets and relapses often follow.

    Second:
    Some of the videos found on various 'tube sites can be very helpful and are great. Other videos ... well ... not helpful as they really amount to not much other than P-subs (check the glossary for definition of P-subs) so be careful if you are just idly browsing 'tube sites. You may end up finding something that really isn't going to be good.

    There is more, but for now, read the "guide" and then work on your goals and how you'll keep them constantly fresh in your mind.

    If you have questions not answered in the "guide" or other concerns, search this site's forum postings and if you still can't find an answer, post a question in one of the forums here.

    One day at a time is how we all succeed.
