    Hello everyone,

    Name's Francis, and I recently had several things happen in my life that made me rethink my spiraling situation. For the past four years, I've wasted my school days away being introverted and shy, and never really got anywhere with girls. Now at a recent age of 24, I realized that I had to change quick since I've noticed that I've been slowly becoming more and more depressed. I felt sick of living and no motivation to anything whatsoever. Everything I did was just because I had to. I had no personal enjoyment in doing the stuff I did.

    Well, since tumblr recently blocked porn, the year is ending, and I still have that little bit of motivation left within me, I decided that its time for me to change; a kind of resolution for the coming year, I suppose.
    I want to be more sociable, think clearer and be less depressed. I let go of tumblr porn, porn-surfing, and started going for jogs in the park to get fit again. I started trying to learn another language just to get my brain thinking more.

    Hopefully, you guys will support me as I go through this hurdle.. I plan on keeping a diary here so that I can see my progress.

    Good for you Francis! You have the right attitude. I feel for all you younger guys/gals that have grown up in this digital age. It makes porn all the more addictive. Channeling your energy doing healthy things and taking on new habits is a great way to keep focused. As you start to feel better about yourself, you’ll gain confidence which will help in the girl department.

    There are some incredible members on this site, and I’m certain many will offer you their personal experiences as well as advice. Only through joining here, did I find the courage to admit to my wife of 25 years that I was addicted to porn. Anything is possible if you believe in yourself. Congratulations again on recognizing your addiction and taking positive steps to change your life!

    Thank you, Mister.

    I hope all of us here will get over this hurdle.
    It's a struggle to stop, but I'm keeping myself busy to ward away the urge.

    Welcome Francis! It looks like you have already taken a few positive steps in the right direction. Keep going! Starting a journal is a great idea. You should follow others on this site and see what is working for them. There are many people on this site who are your same age and in a similar situation. You should read and comment on their posts and get ideas on how to leave PMO in the past. The biggest value this site offers is the support and encouragement that people offer. It gives you hope and confidence that you can change for the better. Best of luck on your journey! Let me know if you have any questions. Take care :)
