    Hi all, i have been a heavy porn user since about the age of 18 when I got my first computer which was about 20 years ago. I've suffered from depression and anxiety during that time, and porn was a crutch that I thought helped me feel better all those years. Now I realize it was making me more isolated and chemically contributing to my depression and anxiety problems. I've decided that enough is enough and I've started committing to going PMO free so I can lead a healthy life. I've been clean for two days now, which might not sound like much, but it has felt like two years. I hope to be a contributing member of the community and want to some day be PMO free like some of the NoFap success stories I've read. Thanks for reading this and allowing me to be part of the community.

    I'm on day 4 of quitting PMO and it's been really tough. I want to go for the 90 day challenge but I really hope it gets easier. I've read about "the surge" and I hope it kicks in for me. Since I quit I've had really bad depression and anxiety and have had trouble sleeping and performing at my job. I'm realizing that I must have been extremely addicted and these are withdrawal symptoms, but damn, they're tough to beat!

    This site has been really helpful, thanks to all of you who post and inspire me to keep up the fight!
