    Hey all. I never actually knew that there was a nofap community as extensive as this, and so I thought I'd go ahead and join in since I'm back on this again.

    I was exposed to internet porn at an extremely young age by stumbling across it by accident while browsing around. I think I was around 10 or 11 (I don't remember), but puberty was starting to hit me and I became addicted FAST. I started fapping pretty much on a daily basis. At the time, I was so misinformed about porn addiction and masturbation that I didn't actually know how much it was affecting my life and my relationships. When I was around 15 or 16 I tried NoFap on my own and ended up lasting around a month before giving in again. I would try two more tries, each lasting the same amount, around a month. I would give up because eventually depression and anxiety would catch up with me and I needed some relief. I haven't tried again ever since.

    I'm 18 years old now, and I have now realized that my internet porn addiction has become the root of many problems that I have in life. This year has so far been a game changer for me, as I started finally changing my life around in all ways that I have been wanting to. I'm going to the gym at least 4 times a week, started dieting and went from a skinny 119 lbs to a respectable 133, began working a part time job, and am starting college at the end of this month. NoFap is my final boss of this year and only decided to do it very recently. I discovered that porn had been fucking up my brain for years. I was always paranoid and clumsy, could never ever think straight, and had hard time interacting with people. I always had really bad headaches almost every day and never find a way to stop them no matter what. I am now on day 5 and for some reason, all these problems seem to have gone away. I'm not saying they're completely gone, but they've faded a lot. This is my fourth and hopefully, final attempt at NoFap. Seeing this community and reading all the stories so far has been so inspiring and motivating. I know that I've just started my journey, but I have a feeling this is going to be a good one.
