    I am 24 and have struggled with pornography and masturbation since I was in my early teens. As a future psychologist I know a few things. One is that pornography rewires the dopamine pathways in the brain making it a truly nasty addiction to quit. Also, I know that there is strength in numbers. With these being said, I'm looking for any kind of help and support as I continue my journey towards freedom!
    Any help in starting here on this site would be great!
    Thanks.

    I guess I should also add that I'm sick if feeling like I'm failing all of the time. It I'm starting to quit and then after a week or so, sometimes less, I'll give in and PMO. I just want to be happy and confident about my life. It's a problem that I've sought help for in groups, but they disbanded and privately. I need the support of a community to kick this habit and was referred here by a friend.

    Yea brother - whenever u feel any urge, feel lonely or feel fcked up for wathever reason, i personally find it helpful to come to the NoFap forum and it makes me feel better to know that there are others who are also struggling with u and are willing to support and help u get out of your rut. to better days!

    do consider getting a tracker (as you can see in our signatures) once u go hit the high numbers (past 2 weeks, 1 month etc) you will not want to break the record.. good luck!

    Thanks for the advice! I really appreciate it. I'm excited to be able to tap into the wealth of knowledge here on this site.
    Also, I added the counter. That will be a nice additional external motivator.
