    NoFap so far has been a big journey for me and the benefits have been incredible, because of my politics I have a principled opposition to porn and prostitution beyond the self improvement aspect of it but I've gotten into the normal mode of NoFap to become more grounded in reality and to get the testosterone boost from semen retention to aid in my strength training.

    I created this account to make this post:
    https://www.nofap.com/forum/index.p...onflicted-between-me-and-someone-else.220942/

    But I suppose I also want to become more involved in this community to return the favor for all the benefits NoFap has given me.

    I do have a strong history of using porn to cope and at my weakest moment was when on a night of drinking I entered a brothel on streets of Krakow to get head, it was during a family vacation and that night haunts me to this day.

    Welcome to the forum bud! Thank you for sharing your story.

    You have been to the edge and in the pit but you're here now. This is a safe space for you to express yourself and learn from the experiences of others. NoFap is also a place where you can replace the negative use of the internet with something positive. Over time you will realize that your urges to use a browser for sexual release will slowly diminish. Over time, your brain will fight back with fantasies. This will be your biggest battle. Don't give in or give up. Keep at it. Fight the good fight. The best long-term solution though is to improve how you deal with negative emotions that arise from a relationship. The key to establishing a long-term defense against addiction is to replace the need for P with human connections. The more you derive pleasure from being part of a community, the more you will be able to leave P out of your daily life.

    Good luck and keep visiting NoFap. To a better place!

    Thanks man it means a lot, I feel fulfilled from my involvement in my friend group, the local gym community, and political circles but I just need to work on filling the one missing piece which is a relationship.
