    Im new to this forum but definitely not new to nofap. I have been trying to quit for almost 5 years now witch I cant believe. Ive just been trying and trying and have always failed eventually. The best streak I have done was I think about 43 days. Now that I found this forum I expect things to go a little better. Im not sure how exactly this works so If anyone wanna do a challenge or have a accountability partner then I'll be happy to do that. I can give you some of my tips that I have learnt during my journey and we can help eachother.

    welcome, I'm new as well, but have done alot of research over the last week. Im am also in process of getting rid of my addiction to porn.

    1st step, please explain what you believe causes you to look at porn? be honest.

    Instagram, social media and so on... i deleted instagram already but you know im still very young and i have a lot of time espacially in the afternoon because its winter and very cold i am most of the time in my room. Thats kinda the main reason. also my friends in school they are all watching porn and always talk about it

    I think the main reason is just impulse and urges, Its so stimulating. And I use it too escape reality a little.

    correct. you must understand this more before you can fix this. You can absolutely fix this.

    What would you guess is the exact cause of these impulses and urges?

    Understand it more ? Do you mean understand that its just a urge and that it will go away ? The cause is Just that I feel horny and its exciting to see some porn after you have been distanced from it for a while.

    I mean understand exactly what is going in your brain, from a chemical standpoint. These urges are not bad. They do not make you bad. And they do not come from some outside mystical force. They are caused by simple chemical reactions in your brain. Excessive porn caused a few wires to get crossed in your brain. luckily the brain is extremely malleable and you can get it wired back correctly by taking some steps.

    But first you have to have an interest in what is happening in your brain. If you dont care about that or dont think that is the problem, then your path will be more difficult.
