Hello Fapstronauts, my name is Richard (male) and here are some information about me and my situation. I started using porn at the age of 16. Back then it wasn't a big deal. I lived in america and we didn't have a lot of internet (internet was like storage e.g. 50 GB for a month for the whole family) so I didn't use it a lot. When I got back to germany this pretty much changed by a milestone. I was able to consume more with better quality. It got really bad during college. I lived alone and had high speed internet that enabled the use. To put it in a nutshell, I watched porn a lot sometimes even 2-3 times per day. Fast forward to today. I'm almost 22 years old, never had a girlfriend, never actually had sex and I feel lonely. Don't get me wrong. I have friends that I enjoy being with but even with them it feels like something is missing. A few weeks ago I got out of a major depressive episode that almost destroyed my life: my grades got really bad, I didn't go outside and I gained almost 15kg, also I masturbated too much. So what do I want to achieve here. To be honest I'm not really sure. I've read a lot about nofap and it's benefits. Getting more willpower, better skin, better sleep, overall more enjoyment of life. They all sound pretty good but my main goal is to see a beautiful girl somewhere and not only think of her as beautiful but to have a drive to talk to her with the goal of intimacy. Let's see how this goes.
