    First of all, I'm 17 years old and I'm a highschool student. I've been struggling with porn addiction since middle school. My motivations are really low, yet I'm going to college next year. And I want to stop it. I've heard that nofap increases your motivation overall so I really want to give it a shot! It's my first time here so I barely know anything. So help me out and thank you!

    Welcome! I'm glad you're here.

    My suggestion is to take the time you might have spent on porn, and instead spend it learning more about how porn becomes such a powerful addiction, and also how to combat it. You will gain a lot just by surfing this site for a couple of hours.

    Also, look around, and you'll find a lot of guys your age, and that helps too.

    I hope you keep coming back!

    Hi @Rafuog and welcome to NoFap!!
    I can just say that spending time on this site and reading success stories, following guys at various stages of their reboot and learning how that impacts lives (at every age group) is a great way of learning and making the decision to leave Porn for good.

    I recommend this site, which sparked me to come here as I honestly did not know anything about how this addiction affects my body, mind and my life.

    If I may just comment. I started looking at Porn at the age of 15, back when we only had VHS videos and a buddy came to drop it off and said I needed to take a look. Fast forward 17 years, and I have struggled with this addiction more than with anything else Life has thrown at me. I am married now, with two daughters and this addiction is still a part of my life and it has a very negative impact on all aspects of my life!

    I'd like to encourage you on this path as you can beat this thing before it becomes a 1000ft monster which has taken route in body, mind and soul! Well done for coming here and please feel free to reach out. I ( as many of the fapstronauts on this site) will be 100% honest and open about our lives.

    I wish you all the best and will be following and rooting for you to kick this to the curb now, and your whole life is ahead of you and that is very exciting.

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

    The enemy is here to steal, kill and destroy. What are your current strategies for combating the enemy called PMO?

    Before I thought that by having sex people could get rid of this addiction. But it turns out that it is not the case. And I can't wait for that. So I decided to stop doing it early. I'll check out the site and thank you for the support!

    P.S. I can't quote the link so I erased it

    I'm a skinny guy and I wanted to gain a bit of weight. So my current strategy is to just eat whenever I feel like masturbating. Maybe it sounds kinda silly but it works for me so far. :D
