    Heyo fellow fapstronauts!

    I thought quitting weed was the most difficult thing I've ever done -- Then I tried quitting porn. Holy cow :mad::mad::mad: ...

    I'm 26 years old, and ten years of porn has gradually sucked away my life in exponentially larger increments at a time. I've progressively lost my desire to stay in shape, have become less and less interested in maintaining my social life and making new friends, less interested in getting back into the dating game, more likely to spend the weekend marathoning TV shows by myself, etc. etc..

    Like other fapstrounats (judging from some of the posts I've read), I feel that the most miserable part about all this is that I actually have a lot to offer -- an exciting career, interesting hobbies, a laid-back-and-fun-loving personality, an adventurous lifestyle -- but that's all been eclipsed by motherf***ing porn. As a result, I've come to hate porn. PMO has stolen everything from me, and I want my life back. The problem is, I can't quit :mad: ...

    I desperately need to quit. Things have started to become scary. Negative personality developments have begin to crop up in my life -- depression, lack of confidence, fear of public speaking, laziness. etc.

    I'm currently at a pivotal point in my life, and am about to advance into a career direction that I've been aiming toward for the past handful of years. However, if I don't quit porn, I see a very real possibility that these negative personality developments will halt my career advancement, and as a result, will permanently disqualify me from the direction that I want my life to go.

    I'm pumped to be the new guy in a community of so many other fapstronaute that are further along than I am. Nice to meet yall! I'm eager to get back on the wagon, and I'm pumped to not be alone this time. Here's to the initial month of #NoFap -- both to myself, and to all the other new fapstronauts that have also joined the community today!
