    Hello whoever may read this,

    I am a young adult that's been using trying to stop my masturbation addiction on and off for the past few years now. I first started off with vanilla but then slowly made it into some types of erotic literature that I feel rather badly about. I started dating my best friend and realized that continuing to read such objectifying pornography would only ruin any intimate relationship we may have down the road. I've held out for a week so far, which is a personal record for me so far, and I already feel better about the way this is going. I've been keeping busy, cleaning my apartment and such, and reading self improvement books to pass the time, but I know distraction is not the best cure, prevention is. I hope to find out ways to keep the urge off and also keep accountable through this site. I'm pretty new to the forum system so I hope someone could shoot me a tip or two to get me started. I plan on updating daily.

    In the world of my personal hobbies I have quite a few. I am an avid hiker and am planning on doing a southbound hike on the Appalachian Trail this summer. I also was an early adopter of VR and am sporting an Oculus Rift that I enjoy using every now and then, but on that note, I am not a real gamer... can't handle the stress of competitive play like CS:GO and the like... I love music, having been in chorus most of my grade school life. My favorite artists include Earth, Wind, and Fire, Jakubi, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Parliament, Charles Mingus, and many others. Favorite genres include Funk, Bossa Nova, Gospel (Mass Choir kind), Nu Disco, R&B, and so on.

    Welp, hope I did what I was suppose to do on this New Member Forum. I hope whoever read this has a nice day!

    Hello @Bulgazof. Welcome to NoFap. Good luck with your journey. I have a masturbation problem too, not so much a porn one though.

  4. Hey @Bulgazof ,

    Welcome to NoFap. Reading other peoples journals is a big part of my program and one of the ways I "work it".

    I just read the greatest journal entry. I don't offer opinions or advice, only ESH (Experience, Strength and Hope).

    I wish I could write the way he does. To me it felt like he opened up his chest and let us see not only into his heart but deeper into his soul. It takes a few minutes to read the first two posts - but, I'm so glad that I did.

    The journal is at

    Keep coming back it works if you work it,
