Hi NoFap users. My name is Dave. I just got an email after signing up that suggested I introduce myself. I am in my late 20's. I have a very religious Roman Catholic background, though recently I've had a crisis of faith and consider myself a skeptic that still attends church. I wanted to join NoFap because porn use gets in the way. Currently I am looking for a job after having just left a graduate program. Though I would like to take a few online courses and apply to jobs, watching porn has taken a lot of my time. I'm the type of person who can watch porn for hours at a time and masturbate several times in one sitting. My non-porn-watching hours are very foggy and I feel scared most of the time (about not finding work). Also, I am not sure whether masturbation without pornography is bad for me. Recently, when I try to do this, porn images come up in my head. Masturbation, even when not looking at porn, fuels my desire for porn. I've been in and out of Sexaholics Anonymous for 7 years. I feel really alienated there for several reasons, the biggest one being that I'm the only twenty-something single man. I got my first android phone about a year ago. I'm trying to set up a decent applock on it, but I find ways around it a lot of the time. Also, I installed Linux on my computer about 6 months ago (I'm trying to learn command line, it's a valuable work skill) and it's taken a while to find internet filters that work. Internet filters are helpful for me, but I'm learning that it's better to seek "positive sobriety", i.e. find something to run towards, instead of running from. Hopefully this forum will help me feel less alone.
