    Hi all - I'd like to introduce myself and share where I'm at and what my plan is. I'm a male 29 yo and have been masterbating pretty much daily since puberty. The PIED I developed has impacted my sex life with girls to where I've gone long periods of not caring about dating. There have been periods in my early-mid twenties where I've quit (3-4 weeks max) because I was motivated being in early stages of dating particular girls, but those relationships never last more than a few months. The last few years have been tough professionally and personally, and COVID hasn't made it better, but I have seen help and am being medicated for my depression/add. I've started a great new gig (about 6 weeks into it and ends in November) which has been good for my mood but I am still forced to work at home and my PMO has gotten out of control. I just want to get a grip on this addiction, start living with a clear and guilt-free head, and start dating girls again without worrying if my dick will work because I watch too much porn. I've beat other addictions before and know the only way is to do it is to dive in 100% and that's what I intend to do.

    Anyways - thanks for letting me share and I'd love to have some accountability, so please reach out if you'd like.

    Welcome to NoFap, brother. You've taken the hardest step already in realizing that you have a problem and deciding that you are going to change. You talk about having been motivated before to stop PMOing during different relationships you were in but that they always petered out. Perhaps that motivation didn't last because you had been drawing from an external source ie your girlfriends. Now is the opportunity to draw from an internal source for your motivation - something far more powerful that can't be taken away.

    Know that you are stronger than you think and that you are capable of change for yourself.

    Welcome to the community, let's start this journey.

  6. Welcome! You sound like you have a great attitude. If you stick with it you will learn so much about life and yourself. How I wish I had made this wise step when I was your age. Do everything you can to get away from porn, brother.
