    Hi there!
    I'm a masturbation addict who usually never miss a day without it for almost 6 years. I don't remember the age that I first watched porn but my addiction started 6 years ago. After some time I started to watch porn less and less but started fapping to pics of the girls I know from school and such. And it became an addiction that way. At first I was feeling so much guilt after I do it thinking of a friend but time after time it became my routine. I also became addicted to instagram to check if any of my friends shared any kinda sexy photo so I can immediately masturbate.
    Day by day I felt that I was not the same building up friendship with females. I was sad but I just could not stop the thing I do when I go home. After some time I started to have no guilt doing it for these photos and I guess I hit the bottom. I always knew about NoFap but I could not find enough confidence enough to do it because masturbating to instagram photos was the thing I enjoy the most in my life. I am finally here and confessed everything. I am hoping to get rid of this sickness. I do not think I will be able to start with the 90 days but I will go step by step , choosing a bigger goal after I complete the former one. I'm also open to your ideas. I do not know if I am supposed to talk about myself more to find good friends that will help me but in case it is: I am 22, like to watch netflix or anime, like most kind of music, online games and lots of other things. Thanks in advance.

  2. Welcome to the community!

    I'm sure you'll be able to reach 90 days one day! We can all do that.
    It's really good that you're thinking of small steps.
    What is your first goal?

    Thanks. I think 2 weeks will be a good first step for me since I've never gone more than 5 days.

    Kudos for sharing, I've just signed in here. I came to know about NoFap only recently only. I tried it by myself but relapsed in 6 days, so I started googling about ways to avoid this. That's when I found this community. I am super excited to start my journey and I already feel motivated that I am not gonna be alone in this!.

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


    First let me go ahead and drop some helpful links for you:

    Getting Started Guide/ Forum Rules / How to Use the NoFap forums/ Glossary/ NoFap Panic button/ Set up your day counter/ Rebooting Resources/ About NoFap/ Support NoFap


    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 advise you to be active on your profile(as there 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.


    Theres a portion of people who love communicating in the profile section..(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 give some 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/log (in the appropriate section for you) 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!
