    Hey everyone. I joined the other day and am pleased to say that I am 9 days without PMO. So far so good but look forward to revisiting this site to continue to get the encouragement I'm sure I'll need.

    Keep strong. If you can do 10 days you can do 100 more.

  4. Hey @180 degrees ,

    Very glad you are here.

    When I arrived here, I was very confused by the program. So many terms, ideas, different opinions. I was in some ways as overwhelmed with NoFap as I was with pmo.

    I found two things that helped me.

    First, was reading up on the program and figuring out where to start and how to work my program. The best page is the one with the list of all the resources available.

    https://www.nofap.com/forum/index.php?threads/new-users-list-of-rebooting-resources.50878/

    That page explained the program. I read every article and watched all the videos on that page.

    Next, was the community. By getting involved, reading people's posts, remembering to "like" the posts, reading the post not only in the forum, but on people's profiles, I found a great group of people.

    This is a diverse community. We have religious people and secular ones. There are men and women. People with months of no pmo and those just starting out. As well, there are many different approaches to remove porn from our lives forever.

    Keep reading posts and profiles. You will find someone who is telling your own story. Keep posting your own story, someone needs to read it.

    Looking forward to reading many more posts from you,

  5. One of the ways I got involved with the fellowship was by reading some really great journals.

    I've included journals from all age groups, spiritual members, religious members, secular members, male and female. You should find journals that help. If not, look around, there are hundreds of others from which to choose. When I say "it works if you work it", reading journals is part of that work.

    Once you open a journal, click "Watch Thread" in the upper right of the page to get alerts when new posts are made. Here are just a few:

    There are many more, and you can discover them on your own. But, these are great places to start.

    This is a work in progress. So, if a journal has changed or is no longer active, look around there are some amazing journals on here.

    So today is day 12 and I'm feeling a wave of temptation. I work from home and my wife does too. Historically I am most tempted to PMO when she leaves the house and I'm home alone at my computer.

    Well, guess what? She just left to run some errands. It's tempting to pull of some of my favorite sites but I came here instead. My visiting NoFap is an affirmation to my commitment to this choice. By typing this I am underscoring my commitment and giving myself something positive to do so I don't slip down the slope.

    Stay strong man! Stay strong!

  9. I do the same thing. I try to give NoFap 25% to 50% of the time I spent every day on p.

    OK, so temptation is back! I've encountered some sexy pics on news sites I've visited and it's really creating a lot of temptation. Today is Day 20 of no PMP and I'm not ready to slip back into old habits. Need to stay strong and keep reminding myself how much better I feel. Will read a few posts and draw inspiration from my friends here at NoFap.
     
  11. Open DNS helped me with that.
