  1. Hi Everyone,

    I'm new here. I think this is the fourth (or sixth?) time I've tried to stop PMO, but my first time using NoFap. I have spent the better part (75%?) of my life trapped the PMO cycle, and with the advent of technology it has only gotten worse. It's gotten to a point that it is a part of my daily life, and is almost as habitual as brushing my teeth. But I know that I spend so much time with PMO that I can be so much more than I am. I know because for a brief few months (you know during one of those earlier attempts) I stopped the PMO cycle and I was tremendously focused, and life was awesome.

    But I'm here to try an experiment. I think I can be so much more than I am right now. I think I can realize my dreams if I can just stop the PMO cycle. And I think NoFap can help. I just want to see what life is like with out PMO. It's been so long I've almost forgotten. And I want to see what it is like long enough so I won't need PMO.

    About 8 years ago PMO blew up my marriage. There is a lot of collateral that I am still dealing with as a result. But things are better than they were. And now I just want to get rid of PMO.

    Now I know this requires more of a "commitment" than an "experiment" but an "experiment" is safer right now because it is not quite a full on "commitment". And calling it an "experiment" is a mind trick so I will get started, and maybe a "commitment" won't seem as bad.

    Anyway thanks for reading. Time to experiment :)

    Welcome, I'm glad you're here. I'm so sorry about what happened with your marriage. But at least you see things clearly; a lot of people never stop denying the problem. That's a huge first step.

    I hope you keep coming back.
