    I know my counter says its less but my actual quit day from PMO was 2/5/15 when my wife discovered that I was still struggling with my addiction. I joined nofap and started my counter months into my journey.

    It's been a VERY long two years to get to this point but I wouldn't change any of it. I have two kids, 1 and 3 years old, and I've been married for 8 years now. It was time for me to get past my biggest weakness and do what was right for my family. My wife was a huge motivation for me early on. Without her help, I never would have made it through those first months. This was all extremely hard on her and our relationship almost fell apart several times during that first year. Giving up the porn was cake compared to what I've had to do to rebuild the trust with my wife.

    I want others to know that you can make it to this point but, just like giving up drugs, alcohol, or cigarettes, you have to really want to quit. If you're not truly committed to doing whatever it takes to achieve sobriety, you're just not going to be successful. Make the right choice and if you slip up, get your shit back together and keep learning from your mistakes. Be willing to do whatever it takes...getting a coach, joining a group, deleting common social media apps from your phone, giving up your favorite shows with nudity/sexual content, or even getting a 'dumb phone'. I made a lot of changes in my life during the first month of recovery. The reason I'm still going, is I haven't changed anything. I still do everything the same as I did when I started. I found something that works for me. Helping others on nofap helps to keep me focused on recovery and helps me remember where I've come from. I don't often post about myself on nofap, but I wanted to celebrate this milestone and I hope others can learn from my journey and be able to post their 2 year milestone on here when the time comes. Keep fighting ;)

    That is amazing man. It makes me think of how exponential the growth of your willpower was over 2 years. That's exactly what I'm seeking.

    Man, two years is just fantastic!!! Definitely worth celebrating and damn right you should be shouting about it :p You are a true inspiration my man and I'm so fed up of porn now (and I never, ever thought that I'd say that!!) Yes, true, I've only done 7 days so very, very early days for me, but man I want to give this up so badly. In fact, and yes it's a cliche, I've not wanted anything more in my entire life!! I want positive relationships with women, I want to view them as equals and as human beings and not "Damn, love to see her in x,y,z position, or whatever"
    You have just inspired me to keep this up and never, ever look back. Thanks so much, and keep shouting it from the rooftops. You deserve it!!!!

    Mate, your story hits me in the feelings! When I read that you had two kids, I was like damn! This mate actually bloody make it! Reading this, mate it really cheers me up. I've been kind of down recently, seeing that I am not making progress. I went from 64 days, to 2 days of streak. But this is what I needed.
    Keep it on and strong mate. I will use your story to fuel my motivation.
    Keep strong and never give up!
