    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.

  2. I completely agree about the emotional voids that cause those addictions. I'm not Catholic, but I like to think that God's energy, or presence, is everywhere around us.

    If whe can sense this good energy and experience it, there will be more strength to endure this challenge. I am just starting now and wish you good luck

    Just to clarify - I'm not Catholic as well. I was raised by a Protestant church.
    Wish you luck as well, mate. Hopefully we will reach our goals and milestones.

    Posts like this concern me. I'm new to this forum. Are most guys here religious and the NoFap thing is mostly about religious guilt? I'm an atheist so I sure hope this not the case.

    I believe religion has nothing to do with NoFap. Religion only represents rituals and traditions created by people. Faith, on the other hand, is the inner movement that would serve as a catalyst to help me sustain the urges and the lustful thoughts. In other words, like every Christian would say - with the help and grace of God. Guilty feeling? Not only because of God, but I'm actually doing this entirely for myself.
    It doesn't matter if someone is either atheist or agnostic, or being Christian. You're starting this as an challenge which might turn out as a new lifestyle you're happy with. You can always view NoFap as a regular challenge. On my end, I'm searching for more long-term benefits and results.
    I don't think most users here are religous. People are seeking for a change. Simple as that. Nothing to be concerned about.
