    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.

  4. Hello mate! Welcome here :)

    When you watch porn, your subconscious mind is storing all those images and videos. It makes your mind dirty. And sooner or later, when life won't go like you want, those images would activate your passive self and you would desire of jacking off to replace your emotions. And then, you end up watching porn.

    Porn is filmed, fake, illusionary, boring and unethical. Why would you want to lose that powerful semen ( that can produce a new child and if conserved can change your life) by watching a random guy, who is probably on drugs, having a fake sexual act with another stranger lady?

    And M is an evil act. The evil act would always have evil fruits. You can read this book to know more. A must read book for every rebooter here.

    Don't worry mate. Ain't being single awesome in itself? I am single too. So many of us are single here, who is almost your age or more. We all came alone from the darkness of the womb and would go alone into some dark world afterwards.

    Do sincere rebooting and spend time fixing your life and working on your emotional self. You would surely meet someone whom you love and vice-versa. Remember, PMO can't fill a void. It creates a one and it gets bigger and wider the more you do it.

    That's a good attitude.

    I wish you all the best. You can do it mate. Reach me out if you need any help :)
