    Hello. 23 working gay guy here. I watched a video about these kind of challenge and it made me think a lot. I have a masturbation problem since my high school days but I noticed that it has become more evident. I usually masturbate twice a day, one in the morning during showers and one at night before going to bed. It gets worse during weekends when I masturbate up to 5 times. Somehow I lost confidence about myself, I gained weight and been more prone to sad thoughts these past months. I began to be alarmed when I cannot get an erection if I am not watching porn or any erotic picture. I also noticed that my "junior" is starting to feel numb after doing the thing. I just wanted to get out of this thing and change how I look towards life.

    well I have an unlimited data plan so the first thing I did is that I did not turn it on my phone and I started to have light exercises. soon I must delete my browser history and pictures though it feels like there is still a struggle, I wanted to do it bit by bit and not drastic so that I hope will not be overwhelmed by the challenge.

    I bought a resistance band months ago but haven't used them so I tried using them to stay away from focusing on porn and fantasizing. I use them alternately with brisk walking every morning. Maybe soon if I have bigger confidence I can jog and move to other exercises

    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?

    Thanks! Well I haven't thought of a big strategy but as far as I have noticed I get aroused before going to bed or immediately waking up with a morning wood. So what I do is I drink a lot of water the night before and urinate whenever I feel aroused. A funny thing which I have been doing lately is rolling in my bed until I get tired. I do light exercises too and get myself busy with work.

    I have also changed my food, unintentionally, with fish and grains such as oats. I noticed that I feel light and have no more reason to have a "sexy time" because I feel I do still have energy throughout the day.

    I must first preface this my saying I started my sobriety before joining NoFap. I didn't start NoFap until I was about 9 months into my sobriety. Prior to that, it was just me and prayer and a determination to stop. It was difficult at times but unlike many, I recently had restarted again so there was a period of time where I abandoned P and occasionally M'd but it was not a daily ritual from youth with no breaks.
    Even then, it was tough with several setbacks but I was determined and I removed P from myself and stopped M'ing. Once I got on a serious streak (about 3 months),I fell and restarted but then I continued until today.

    Check out In Case You Didn't Know for strategies and tips which may help you along your journey.

    Sadly me too. But at least I reached up to a week and for me it is a good start considering how I masturbated everyday then. I'll start again until the days of no PMO get longer and I would not think of PMO anymorr.
