    Hey guys, just created this account as I write this, wanted to introduce myself and interact with some (hopefully) new internet friends.

    I'm 4 hours away from 8 days at the time of this forum post, and so far, so good. Feeling pretty confident that I can do this. I was a daily fapper, sometimes up to 3 times a day which isn't as often as some of the posts I've seen, but I'm in my 30's and I've been doing this ever since I discovered that my pecker had uses other than urinating. I wanted to share something that I noticed so far. I'm not a doctor or scientist, so forgive me if I get any of the terminology wrong.

    I'm not a religious person, but I'm starting to wonder if technology is the devil. Here's what I mean. I'm a wrestling fan, (lol I know, don't judge me) and so I was scrolling through my YouTube feed and saw a bunch of interviews and whatnot and I saw a video titled "Former WWE wrestler X-pac speaks on sleeping with Jenna Jameson" or something to that affect. This was on day 3 if I remember correctly and I recall instantly getting an urge. I passed the test of course, but I found it fascinating because I had an epiphany.

    I think my subconscious immediately saw attractive girl on thumbnail, instantly connected that she was a porn star, saw the term sex in the title, and it triggered said urge. I didn't even watch the video, this all happened in the half second it took me to read everything. I'll tell you why I found this fascinating.

    If I see an attractive girl in real life, sure, I'll check her out and think "wow she's hot", but I don't turn into a ravenous wolf like we all would do when doing PMO. I think there's some sort of connection with our brains and being addicted to fake, internet, pixelated girls or something. Again, this doesn't happen in real life, only on a video screen. I think it might be similar to how obese people are addicted to yummy but fake, processed, synthetic garbage food rather than the real thing. I hope that makes sense to everyone.

    Speaking of wrestlers, I also found a perfect deterrent to fapping. The wrestler Charlotte Flair had some nudes leaked. I made the mistake of looking at them, and my penis immediately detached itself like something on the movie The Thing and went scurrying out the window. I called in a Code Adam (Code Adam is Wal-Mart lingo for lost child) at the local police station and it still hasn't been found. Final warning: Do not look at these pictures, you will never touch your happy place again.

    In all seriousness, I wanted to leave a word of encouragement for those that might be struggling. Try and keep a positive outlook on the whole thing. You're not a loser, you're not a pervert or a sexual deviant. You are simply a man or woman that is addicted to dopamine spikes. Some use drugs, some alcohol, but when you think about it, you have a never ending supply of dopamine between your legs.

    I don't want this to be a novel, so I might make a separate post on how I've been doing so far somewhere else. Thanks for reading, and good luck everyone.

    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?

    Well like I illuded to in my above post, I'm thinking my brain has made some sort of subconscious connection to electronic images of women and an incoming dopamine spike, so right now, I just avoid looking at them.

    I'm not even referring to porn, just any of them. I still think it's strange that this happens on a computer screen but not in real life, but you know, addiction will make you not quite normal, lol.

    Also, if I find myself bored, I will come here and read some success stories, or play a computer game, or watch a movie, etc. So far I just keep my brain occupied. Keeping my hands from being idle helps a lot.

    Also I just reflect back on how I'm starting to feel better. Before, I was a nervous, anxious wreck. Always felt dirty, wouldn't look anyone in the eye, bit my nails, just a lot of horrible habits. I reflect on how much better I'm feeling, even after only 8 days, and how I never want to return to that empty husk of a man I was throughout my adult life.

    Plus, this might sound kind of funny, but some people complain about the blue ball feeling, but in a way, I kind of like it. Feels like the more my balls are filling up, the more my manhood and life force is returning.

    I feel motivated to wait, and once I go through more of the healing/rebooting process, give my "energy" to a woman like we're designed to do, instead of literally "go F yourself".
