    Hey everyone, new to NoFap here.

    I’m a 21 year old female who has been struggling with porn addiction for almost 5 years now. I was first exposed to porn in the form of pornographic online games when I was 10. What I thought was a kids’ gaming website apparently also included adult nudity and sex-based games. I stumbled across a few and though I didn’t even know what I was looking at, my body knew what to do and I experienced PMO. I would do this in secret for a few months until one day my younger sister caught me, and the shame I felt from that was enough for me to stop.

    Fast forward to me being 16. I was alone and scrolling through Twitter when someone had retweeted porn and it showed up on my TL. I was drawn in and masturbated for the first time since I was 10. I tried to get the images off my mind but found myself seeking them out more and more. Since then, I’ve been seeking out increasingly hardcore porn and have tried unsuccessfully to stop so many times.

    I’m getting married in six weeks and seriously do not want to bring porn into my marriage with the man I love and cherish so much. He too struggles with PMO and we are each trying to overcome our addictions. Additionally, I am a Christian and my faith is extremely important to me. I believe that God is who empowers me and enables me to quit.

    Excited to meet some people on here and here their backgrounds and success stories.
  2. As a fellow Christian porn addict, one of my biggest mistakes is expecting God to give me a big revelation in my life that will change me completely. Having been a believer for 6 years, such revelation has not come to me. Instead, we are empowered and enabled to quit PMO through going to Jesus daily and meditating on his Word.

    I pray God will bless you and your marriage!

    Welcome to the forum. Addiction does not discriminate who it affects. Some of us are more vulnerable than others and sooner or later we end up getting ensnared. It can be very difficult to escape. Addiction produces intense feelings of shame, guilt, and embarrassment... and that can get magnified if we have a religious background and know that our God disapproves of our behavior. But our Creator knows how we are formed (Ps. 103:14) and is able to give us the desire and power to make changes (Ph. 2:13). I hope you find the necessary information and skills needed to make your marriage a happy one.
