Hello new friends, I grew up a strong, yet naive Christian. I didn't learn to masturbate until I was 22, but the discovery led to an addiction that has deteriorated my life over the past three years. "Innocent" curiosity led to a dependency on porn. Simultaneously, I noticed that more and more doubts started creeping into my faith until I got to the point where I don't even know if I believe in God anyway. I realize that this is a secular community, which I appreciate. Truthfully, most people in the Christian community I knew let me down and did not help in this struggle. I am excited to join a group of people who understand the consequences of porn and masturbation for what they are, regardless of religion. If I could regain my faith, then that would be great. If there are Christians out there who do want to support and encourage me, I'm more than welcome to that. Either way, I want to regain control of my life and crush this nasty addiction in the Hard Mode 90 Day Challenge. I've been close before on my own, and with this community by my side, I am convinced I can do even better and finally make it!
