    Hello all. It's great to be part of a community of similar goal-oriented individuals. I'm 24 and a student in college. I've just passed my first 24 hours of no PM or O, and NoFap itself. Next 24 hours should be interesting.

    Welcome to the forum. It's good to start with small goals and work our way up to bigger ones. Congrats on 23 hours! For some of us that is a big accomplishment. Keep educating yourself. Plan for when the urges hit. Be prepared to distract yourself, do something different, or run to a place where there are people. I hope you find success on your journey.

    Congratulations on Day 1!!!

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

    What are your current strategies for combating the enemy called PMO?

    Thanks D.J.

    I am currently using timers and logs to keep track of my progress and mood. I have also been using prayer to help with the temptation. I'm currently on RTribe too, so I can get help keeping accountable.

    Those are two solid ways you help you. I'm on r|tribe as well and have found it helpful.

    Prayer always helps. It takes your mind away from you and places it on someone else.

    Check out In Case You Didn't Know for additional strategies and tips which may help you along your journey.

    OK, MoCar, it is important to have a reason when quitting, a good reason, a reason that is important to you. This habit is a habit we probably would not quit unless it had some bad repercussions in our lives. Cigarette smokers would not quit if it did not affect them adversely. They lose lung capacity and eventually get cancer. There are all kinds of bad results from using porn all the time. From PIED (porn induced erectile dysfunction) to social interaction problems.
    "When I quit, I quit. I did not count the days, I woke up every morning and said to myself I am never going back". I think that is the mindset you must have.

    Hey esforzado,

    I'm doing this because I feel porn and masturbation has affected my relationship and sex drive. I want to save my emissions and myself for my partner
