I'm a 17-year old male being addicted to PMO since the age of 13. I remember my first time as a pure glimpse of curiosity. Perhaps it was around the time I had received high-speed Internet. The addiction at one point was worsened by various circumstances - such as not going to church on a regular basis and psychological impacts by certain negative events of my life. I heard about the NoFap challenge and the potential benefits it could bring your life together. The point is to learn to have much more of a meaningful and fulfilled life. The addiction is a consequence of emotional voids. We have to fill up these voids. Stopping PMO is only the beginning of a future full recovery. This is at least how I view it. Hopefully with the grace of God my state of a true believer will come back again, like I used to be years ago. Things didn't turn around as every true Christian expects, they basically went downhill. I believe in God and the Bible, but I can't live up with the words in the Black Book. Porn (lust) is only one of those sins occurring for quite a while now. Besides lust, there are hundreds of more. That's the reason PMO is the first step of attempting a cleansing of the soul. Curing the addiction will serve as a great example and symbol for repairing your life. My goal is to import some balance in my days. Whether you're working simultaneously on a few aspects of your life or you're focused on one, it doesn't matter. Remember to use your time for creating the ultimate version of yourself. Let this journey begin.
