    Hi everyone,

    Today I signed up to the forum as I feel mutual support will help me on my journey. I’m 25 and have suffered with PIED for around 5 years now, with it at its worst the last two years. I’ve tried and failed countless times to stop watching porn. Previously I’d be lucky to manage a week. Right now, I’m 18 days into NoFap and I’m expecting difficulties.

    Anyone got any advice? Succcess stories? Have people found that getting through it does give you the rock hard erections you’d get when you were younger?

    Welcome to the Nofap community.
    The NO PMO journey is not easy but worth the effort.

    Don’t expect difficulties. Problems come and go.

    Welcome!

    -For porn the thing that worked for me is if you go on the internet trying to be mindful of what you do. It started very simple for me with just before going to a website saying to myself for ex. i'm going to youtube to only look at the music I want. Often this simple intention can keep you from wasting precious time and prevents you from going to websites you don't want.

    - For triggers what works very good for me is only touch your genitals when you go to the toilet otherwise, at all times use a belt so that you cannot get into your pants or just get yout hand out when you notice (This section applies for masturbation).

    -I also need for myself something purposeful each day, do something constructive (ex. do sports, learn a new song, help somebody, meet with friends). This gives me more energy and prevents me being in a self absorbed state, being bored, being lonely which leads often to masturbation in my case.

    - Even though I'm new, something I really like is the PMO tracker.

    I hope these few tips can already help you a bit & good luck!

  6. Heyyy welcome to the NoFap forum : ) It's nice to see you here fighting the good fight alongside us!

    Here is just some advice:

    First and foremost please take a look at each section in the forum, there might be something(s) you may find of big help to you. Feel free to post there :+)

    Then secondly I just strongly advise you to be active on your profile(as there quite a few active people in the profile section). Please start by choosing an avatar and then make daily status posts to show you're active and needing support/encouragement. They've also got a neat little feature that shows freshly posted statuses for all users to see. People will find your profile and give you encouragement/support.

    People (are beginning to) love communicating in the profile section..(it should be and is )mostly spportive talk but it doesn't hurt to deviate from supportive talk. It would be great to have you join in and support others in the threads, profiles, and journal, we could always use your help and in return you shall receive some as well!

    Thirdly, You should also highly consider creating a public journal and write about your days in more depth for us members to follow along your journey and offer support to you by way of posting in your journal.

    Last but not least: Good luck on your journey here, make sure to really give it a try with all your heart!
