    Hey everyone,

    I'm a 22 year old guy living in Colorado. I've been addicted to porn since I was at least 13 or 14, and I've been masturbating for almost as long as I can remember. I've had a girlfriend for 7 months, and I thought my habit would begin to fade away when I got a girlfriend - yet it only got much worse. It takes more and more porn to get me off, it doesn't satisfy me anymore, and it has taken a toll on my mental health. I've been in several different phases of giving up porn, but I'm used to masturbating multiple times a day to relax or cope with a difficult situation. That said, I'm starting 90 days without PM today. I like to play guitar and write, and I have numerous other hobbies I would like to explore during my PM-free time. Looking forward to rebooting and getting to know more of you.
  2. Welcome aboard, mate! It looks like you have a lot of good reasons to reboot. I hope you find the strength to put this behind you. In the meantime, we're here to help.

  4. Hey, welcome to the NoFap community
    : )

    It's nice to see you here fighting the good fight alongside us!
    First let me go ahead and drop some helpful links for you:
    Getting Started Guide / Forum Rules / How to Use the NoFap forums/ Glossary/ NoFap Panic button/
    Set up your day counter /
    Rebooting Resources/
    Accountability groups (new!)/
    About NoFap/ Support NoFap

    Here is just some advice:
    First and foremost please take a careful look at each section in the forum, there may be something(s) you will find to be of big help to you.

    Secondly I advise you to be active on your profile(as there a few active people in the profile section). Please start by choosing an avatar and then begin posting frequent status posts to show you're active and needing support/encouragement.
    The forum has got a neat little feature that shows freshly posted statuses for all users to see.
    People will find your profile and give you support.

    There’s a portion of people who love communicating in the profile section..(it should be and is )mostly spportive talk but it doesn't hurt to deviate from supportive conversations. It would be great to have you join in and become part of the team!
    We support others in the threads, profile posts, and journals/reboot logs.
    Once you receive some support, please be sure and be grateful to the member for the help/support you received and consider giving some in return to anyone you wish.

    Thirdly, you should highly consider creating a public journal/reboot log (in the appropriate sectionfor you) to write about your days in depth for us members to follow along on your journey and offer support to you on.

    Please start your journal in the correct section and with that, also try your best to post in the correct sections as it is mandatory and would be helpful to the mods who organize the forum. : )

    Last but not least: Good luck on your journey here, make sure to really give it a try with all your heart!
