Hi NoFap! and everyone here, So I don't really know where to begin, but I guess starting with talking about myself and why I joined this group would help. Hmmm, I'm a 22 year old male, I started fapping early on around when I was 11-12 and at the time I didn't even know I was fapping because I was just rubbing outside of my pants and things just happen. I had a lot of shame and guilt associated with it, which was a big blow to my confidence and self esteem growing up. But, 10 years down the road, I've come a very long way from those days and have experimented with erotic stories, porn images, porn videos, fleshlights, blow up dolls, sexual massages, escorts and even trans escorts all of which led me here, a point where I realize that my addiction was insatiable and that if I didn't take control, sooner or later my fetishes would go out of control and that my tolerance would just expand to a point it takes a life of its own and consume me. Aside from the emotional turmoil that I suffer from fapping, i realized that physically it was also taking a toll on me with my balls shrinking significantly, my erections weakening, my hair falling out and a whole other physical issues. So here I am, 3 day into the NoFap Challenge. What I aim to get from the NoFap Challenge is to teach my self discipline and self-control, relearn what it means to form healthy relationships (as I have often objectified/ belittle the women I date), understand that sex should never be associated with guilt or be used as a tool and lastly accept that I am my own person and I am responsible for my actions. How am I going to do this? I have posted in one of the other newcomer post that I am going to start small by doing 30 days without PMO and entering my 3rd day now, I'm already excited to see small improvements/ changes happening in my life (increased confidence and better sleep). All in all, I've always thought that the NoFap Challenge was for people with extreme social issues and that I was exempted seeing that my life is in order (have a good job, have robust social life and have experience dating a few times in the past), but I now know that its not true. PMO no matter how small, plays a huge role in the shaping of your mind, perspective and outlook in the world, understanding that, I hope that with the NoFap Challenge I will soon be able to recover and become a better and healthier person.
