    You can call me Nails. I'm a 34 year old male who picked up a porn habit in my early twenties as a way of dealing with a series of failures and setbacks which were a completely foreign and shocking experience which I was unequipped to handle. Now a decade later that habit has gradually and insidiously become chains and shackles.

    At this point my career is at an inflection point and I'm blessed with great opportunity to reach the next level. But with that opportunity the cost of failure is much,much higher than it's ever been either. My relationship with pron is at a point where the porn induced brain fog and lack of motivation are jeopardizing my ability to perform my job, let alone reach the maximum of my potential.

    I'm here because I believe the first step is getting out of the dark and acknowledging the above out in the light of day. I know freedom is possible because I've gone 90 days porn free before without any resources or help. So I'm hoping the resources and community here are the game changing part of the equation.

    Heyyy welcome to the NoFap forum : ) It's nice to see you here fighting the good fight alongside us!

    Here is just some advice:

    First and foremost please take a look at each section in the forum, there might be something(s) you may find of big help to you. Feel free to post there :+)

    Then secondly I just strongly advise you to be active on your profile(as there quite a few active people in the profile section). Please start by choosing an avatar and then make daily status posts to show you're active and needing support/encouragement. They've also got a neat little feature that shows freshly posted statuses for all users to see. People will find your profile and give you encouragement/support.

    People (are beginning to) love communicating in the profile section..(it should be and is )mostly spportive talk but it doesn't hurt to deviate from supportive talk. It would be great to have you join in and support others in the threads, profiles, and journal, we could always use your help and in return you shall receive some as well!

    Thirdly, You should also highly consider creating a public journal and write about your days in more depth for us members to follow along your journey and offer support to you by way of posting in your journal.

    Last but not least: Good luck on your journey here, make sure to really give it a try with all your heart!

    Wow, I'm impressed by y'all already. There sense of community is sincere.

    This is profound enough to ponder for days. It's undeniable we really do have a choice every time we give in.

    Btw, I had to work hard to figure out how to use the quote function. Perhaps I've also taken a step to becoming a real millenial one day.
