    Hey Everyone,

    I'm a 26 male and have been addicted to PMO since I was about 14. I found out about "NoFap" and retention in July 2018, so almost two years I've known about it. In all that time, I haven't achieved a 30 day streak, which is embarrassing.. I know it's not about counting the days but it's still extremely frustrating. I feel like I haven't put in the necessary work to be free of this addiction. Maybe I didn't want it bad enough..

    I relapsed a couple nights ago and I've never been so frustrated and disappointed in myself. I was in a very very dark place, as with all my relapses. That night, I told myself I needed to change once and for all. To leave this in my past forever.

    So here I am. I'm super stoked for this upcoming journey. I feel this is the help I always needed.

    Thank you everyone!

    Welcome
    Please, start studying carefully what's happening in your mind > https://oceanrecoverycentre.com/2016/07/the-ultimate-guide-to-overcoming-internet-porn-addiction/

    First time without porn will be stressful , but if you resist , in some months you will feel reborn.

    If the first times a person relapse easly, it's okay.
    The streaks becomes even longer , day by day.
    Don't porn anymore, it's better to struggle and at the last to relapse than to look at porn.
    No more instagram pictures of models. No more erotic imagines , erotic stories or erotic asmr.
    If you experience ''flatline'' and low libido , resist.

    An effective weapon to overcome urges and thoughts : mindfulness.
    The brain will try to win you and to get some triggers for the seek of dopamine. Resist

    Try to be active and start a journal/ challenges

    Hey man we all learn by falling and getting back up again, remember when you had to learn how to ride a bike, how many times you fell of and was frustrated that you could not do it yet but one day you got on your bike and never fell like that again well pmo is not that different if you think about it, with the right motivation you will one day get back up and never fall again, you just have to stay motivated till that day is here man.

    Good luck on your journey and if you ever need help you have but to ask and we will be here for you.

    Thank you all for your support!! I know we probably will never meet in person but I'm considering you guys my brothers on here. You don't know how much it means to have support like this. I think I was right when I said this is what I needed. Almost a week in and feeling a lot better.

    I've tried this long enough to realize that EVERY SINGLE day is a fight. A fight for my life. Me against my mind. But man, it makes it a lot easier to have a great support system filled with people that are going through the same exact thing. I'm so grateful to have joined NoFap. The best thing that has happened to me in a while.

  8. Hey, welcome to the NoFap community
    : )

    It's nice to see you here fighting the good fight alongside us!
    First let me go ahead and drop some helpful links for you:
    Getting Started Guide / Forum Rules / How to Use the NoFap forums/ Glossary/ NoFap Panic button/
    Set up your day counter /
    Rebooting Resources/
    Accountability groups (new!)/
    About NoFap/ Support NoFap

    Here is just some advice:
    First and foremost please take a careful look at each section in the forum, there may be something(s) you will find to be of big help to you.

    Secondly I advise you to be active onyour profile(as there a few active people in the profile section). Please start by choosing an avatar and then begin posting frequent status posts to show you're active and needing support/encouragement.
    The forum has got a neat little feature that shows freshly posted statuses for all users to see.
    People will find your profile and give you support.

    There’s a portion of people who love communicating in the profile section..(it should be and is )mostly spportive talk but it doesn't hurt to deviate from supportive conversations. It would be great to have you join in and become part of the team!
    We support others in the threads, profile posts, and journals/reboot logs.
    Once you receive some support, please be sure and be grateful to the member for the help/support you received and consider giving some in return to anyone you wish.

    Thirdly, you should highly consider creating a public journal/reboot log (in the appropriate sectionfor you) to write about your days in depth for us members to follow along on your journey and offer support to you on.

    Please start your journal in the correct section and with that, also try your best to post in the correct sections as it is mandatory and would be helpful to the mods who organize the forum. : )

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