    Hi everybody,

    First of all, thank you all to let me be part of this community.

    I have started watching porn in 2005 when I was 13 years old on TV, I then been addicted to online porn videos. I think that in the 12 years , I masturbated 3 times a week ( at least) so 1900 times.

    I have been able to stop masturbating for 4 weeks but not much. I met a girl through my social circle and wanted to have sex...I couldn't have an erection and the girl was really upset as myself. I am sure that erection problem is caused by hundreds of masturbation session.

    For all this reason, i decided to find some help and support by creating an account on this forum.

    Welcome to NoFap where you are amongst friends who are here to encourage you and sometimes challenge you but not judge you.

    The enemy is here to steal, kill and destroy. What are your current strategies for combating the enemy called PMO?

    500+ Days !!!! I am so impressed!

    I tried to stop watching porn and masturbate in the beginning of April but I failed on Monday and yesterday.

    What iI realised is that when I was busy doing my hobbies ( martial art, Gym, Guitar) it was easier to not watch porn movie. The hardest day is Friday because I finished work early and nothing plan for when I get back home.

    --> to stop watching porn when I am at home:
    • I am going to start reading books or have a walk
    • I am going to install a program to block porn websites

    I have two main reasons to masturbate :

    1. Excitement masturbation: After hours of porn videos it's just to hard to resist especially after few days of no porn videos. it's like a drug addict who stop for a month and get rail of coke ...
    2. Frustration masturbation: When I am not feeling good after a hard day at work or after an argument with friends and family. The masturbation give me a good feeling and help me forgetting my frustration ... the problem is that it makes me even more frustrated an hour later
    --> to stop watching porn when I am at home:

    • I need to find a way to express my frustration in another way
    • I need to stop watching porn videos

    As you manage to stop porn videos and masturbation have you done by reducing the amount of porn videos ?

    Thank you for your support

    No, there was no reduction of videos but a total removal of all videos, all links, all web history, all association with that world.

    I am back,

    I failed multiple time to succeed my Nofap challenge. After my trip in Marrocco in August, I masturbated and when I went back to Uk, I went to my bad habit of watching porn movies at home.

    As we are in the beginning of 2018, I made a list of goals that I would like to achieve. One of them, is to nofap. I have reprogram my PMO tracker and I am ready to go!

    How I am going to do it?

    Well, what I noticed during my multiple attempts is that when I am busy I don't have time to stay hours and hours watching porn so I set up a long list of goals and activities to keep me busy everyday.

    Wish me good luck, I am gonna need it!

    Hi everyone,

    I sadly have to say that I failed again! I am really upset because I managed to stop watching porn during the week but I gave up on Saturday afternoon.

    The week went really well, extremely busy at work and really tired when back home, so not a lot of time to spend watching porn. On Saturday morning, I did some cardio and I cleaned up my bedroom and read a book. I had nothing really plan for the afternoon which wasn't a good plan.

    I thought " dude, just one soft porn...like a simple lesbian" but 1hour later was watching real hardcore porn. You all know what happened, I masturbate then release.

    What really freak me out is the excitement I had when watching the first porn like it was the first one of my life, what also chocked is the time took me to have an orgasm less than 3 minutes. I start to really worried, I mean if I manage to stop masturbating for a 2 weeks then I try to have sex with a girl, am I going to have an orgasm in 5 minutes?

    Anyway, let's get back to 1 but I learned something " Always be busy"!

  9. Hey

    I'm just a normal ordinary member. No moderator super powers and no special insite. I share my ESH (Experience, Strength and Hope) of what works for me.

    Just another warm welcome and a heart felt hello. This community has helped me so much.

    What worked for me was "working" it. It took hard work for me to complete a hard reboot (No pmo) for 120 days, then move into a Sex Positive mode.

    First, reading the literature published by NoFap itself along with reading journals.

    Then, doing the work. Writing in my journal and replying to introductions and other's journals.

    Finally, but not least, getting involved with the fellowship. I found it on the forums, but also in people's profiles. The forums tend to be longer posts, where the profiles tend to be more "conversational".

    That is what has worked for me. I like to remind myself that this community was here waiting for me with the lights on when I arrived. Now, I have to do my best to be there when someone comes to the community.

    PS: Why not say hello to some members? The fellowship is so important to me, I hope you might find it important as well.

    There are many more, and you can discover them on your own. But, these are great places to start.
