New to this Site. Didn't think 'NoFap' was actually a serious thing.

    Hi, thank you in advance for taking some time to read this. Any feedback is appreciated. I'm a 29 year old male that goes by Dopamine3 because I love physiology, especially the CNS reward system and it is also my Covenant Eyes username.

    Been struggling with porn for about 15 years and I've been trying to battle it by myself without any external support other than prayer and the confessional at my church. Needless to say I've confessed viewing pornography about 10,000 times.

    I have a serious girlfriend of 2 years and that's actually the reason I'm here. I deeply love her and I'm tired of hurting her with my selfish impulsivity towards porn. Unfortunately, I gave in to temptation early this morning and she was on the brink of leaving me. She is an incredible person with a very tender heart, and for some undeserving reason I am blessed enough to have her as a romantic partner. If I do not get help and beat this I will lose her.

    I look forward to engaging in different challenges and conversations that will help rewire my brain and optimize neural networks in ways that will benefit my everyday life, especially my relationship. And I whole-heartedly welcome any thoughtful, constructive, or encouraging comments.

    Thank you for taking the time to read this.

    Hey Man, in a very similar situation to yours, dating a girls for 3 years now and really tryna quit this habit. First off well done for reaching out, it's an important step in the process. Second I want to encourage to change your focus from doing NoFap for your relationship/girlfriend to doing NoFap for yourself. You're your own man and you gotta do this for yourself, only then you can become a better boyfriend. Third I'm here for you, anything you need ask.
