    Hi I'm BjoernB,
    I'm in my mid 20ies, a musician and teacher and porn has been an on-off problem in my life well over 10 years since I was 13.
    I tried soooooo many freaking times to break free, managed to have some streaks of abstinance from up to 30 days, but always relapsed sooner or later. I'm also battling CPTSD that developed during childhood and porn is a more or less effective coping mechanism against feelings of anxiety and depression – not really helping, but numbing the pain momentarily. Since I'm commited to make progress on the battlefield of mental health I'm very well aware that I need to get hold of my porn addiciton as well. It's not helping with my symptoms but (who would have thought...) making it even worse in the long run.
    That's why I decide to register here in search for a supporting community (even if it's "only" online) to not be fighting on my own anymore and hopefully beating the addiction at last. I'm excited to get to know some of you and finally creating a support group to beat this b***h.

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

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

    People (are beginning to) 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, 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 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!
