    Hey guys, my name is Nathan, im 19, and Im trying to quit porn. Ive been addicted to PMO for almost 2 years now, and it has started to affect my relationships and my sex life. Does anyone have any tips for me to get started with? I want to get better!

    Hello, Nathan. Welcome to NoFap. My advice would be to control your gaze. If you can control what you look at, it will go a long way in helping you stop PMOing. If you're at Wal-Mart, don't look at the magazines at the checkout aisles. If you're watching a basketball game on TV and the cheerleaders appear and they start dancing, look away from the screen. If a commercial for Victoria's Secret comes on, look away. If you're working out at a gym, you know that there will be women working out in some very skimpy clothing, so don't look at them.

    Guard yourself by controlling what you look at. I know that it will help you because it helped me a lot.

    Thanks, This is a really good idea! I generally try not to look at girls in public anyway because I have a GF, but everything else should hopefully prove useful!

    If you haven't already done so, please read the "Getting Started Guide" available on this site's home page. It includes a lot of information that you will find helpful as you start your journey of healing. Also have a look at the "Glossary" on the top of this page for definitions of abbreviations and terms that may be new to you.

    One day at a time is how we all succeed.

    This is great advice, and something I follow as well. Until you are doing NoFap you don't really realize just how many triggers there are in day to day life. But looking away, or focusing on something else, is great advice, as well as just avoiding things that you know will contain triggers, like social media, certain video games, etc.
