    I am 24 years old. I had huge social anxiety problems in my late teens and my insecurity affected my social interactions with women. I was too insecure about my physical appearance. But I am better now.

    I first masturbated when I was a month away from 18. This is way late than most people. But I came across masturbation in a very natural way - not through the internet. And I am happy about that.

    I have been seeing a girl for a month now. We are in a pre-dating phase. But I tend to over think on every small thing. And I think that has to do with my insecurity and fear of not this not working out especially because this is the first time things have reached this stage.

    I watched a couple of TED talks and that's how I reached here just like many others.

    I understand the human psychology and the role of hormones/testosterone/dopamine in the way we feel and behave. I think by not masturbating for a prolonged period, I will be able to feel more confident, socialize better and better navigate my relationship with this woman. I want to start off with 30 days and then take on from there. I already have been doing it less since I started seeing this woman. I haven't for about 5 days now. I am sure I am going to have urges, but by writing this, having a tracker on my wall and being part of this community I think I can do it.
