    Hi, I'm new here. I discovered porn online in late elementary school and masturbation in early middle school. I can only think of a few periods of my life where I consciously avoided porn and masturbation. And that was within the last two years after hearing about NoFap without doing any research. I maybe went a few days. There have recently been days that I find myself avoiding problems. It's almost out-of-body, watching myself waste time and energy when there are so much more important things I can be focusing on. Like the LTR I'm in. And school. And work.

    So I'm starting this. I've been exercising regularly and taking ice baths daily. I am working on my diet, been eating strict keto with a recent cheat weekend. My main challenge there is getting in enough protein. Overall I'm working on discipline. It's a better pain than regret.

    I highly recommend the movie Pumping Iron. Its about Arnold Schwartzenegger's Mr Universe training days vs other body builders including Lou Ferrigno. He talks about getting more protein in that and its just a good movie for any workout guy.

    Heyyy welcome to the NoFap forum : ) It's nice to see you here fighting the good fight alongside us!

    Here is just some advice:

    First and foremost please take a look at each section in the forum, there might be something(s) you may find of big help to you. Feel free to post there :+)

    Then secondly I just strongly advise you to be active on your profile(as there quite a few active people in the profile section). Please start by choosing an avatar and then make daily status posts to show you're active and needing support/encouragement. They've also got a neat little feature that shows freshly posted statuses for all users to see. People will find your profile and give you encouragement/support.

    People (are beginning to) love communicating in the profilesection..(it should be and is )mostly spportive talk but it doesn't hurt to deviate from supportive talk. It would be great to have you join in and support others in the threads, profiles, and journal. Make sure and be grateful for the help you received and help after receiving some. Invest in some people's journeys. We could always use your help and in return you shall receive some as well!

    Thirdly, You should also highly consider creating a public journal and write about your days in more depth for us members to follow along your journey and offer support to you by way of posting in your journal.

    Last but not least: Good luck on your journey here, make sure to really give it a try with all your heart!
