    The following post may be emotional for some, so trigger warning. (I hate that phrase)

    First of all, I wanted to thank Alexander and the rest of the moderators of nofap. I really think this community is helping me and I'm improving with my addiction. So from the bottom of my heart, again, thank you all.

    For the longest time, I didn't realize it, but I was in a pit of self loathing and despair. I would either watch pornography, or just sit in front of my computer and play games. I lost a lot of great jobs due to addiction and I was going nowhere in my life. I'm not against video games myself, but I often wonder if it was some sort of secondary symptom of addiction. For example, maybe fapping reduced my testosterone levels so much that I didn't want to go out and experience life, so I just sat at home wasting ours on fun (but pointless) games.

    The reason I say this is that since I've been on nofap, I have lost all desire to play them as well. To reiterate, no, I don't have anything against them, but perhaps people like me just have addictive personalities and are drawn to stuff like this.

    Anyway, I know social media can be addictive as well, but I've restarted Facebook and am reconnected with old friends that I abandoned during my isolation. Feels good to be social again. My confidence is returning, and I'm approaching more women now as well. Before, if I were to be rejected, it would have destroyed me and I would have given up, but now I just move on to the next one. It's not a big deal to me now.

    I've also attended a lot of job fairs and have had some interviews scheduled. I can't want to use all this stored sexual energy on something positive.

    I really think this stuff works, everyone. Keep trying. Don't beat yourself up if you hit a speed bump. Thank you for the third time to everyone in the nofap community. I love you guys.

    Right on man! It's so interesting to see how much social/emotional leaps and bounds people are able to make when you begin to get off PMO!

    Fortunately I am not living in the age of old Rome. Fortunately I am living in 2017 and joined the Nofap-community. Although I am not porn-addicted, this community helps me to get rid of addiction to M.
    The intense urges in the first weeks showed me how much addicted I already have become. Yesterday mind tried me to fall back in old habits. And some inner voice whispered: "The choice is yours. You can make your M-celebration as you did it in the last years and which you liked so much. Or you can open the Nofap-website and encourage those who were looking for encouragement. Whome do you want to feed? The good wolf inside of you or the bad wolf?"
    So I wrote some comments in the forum and it felt great. Motivating, inspiring, encouraging other people has become my secret weapon against my own strange thoughts. If you want to test it for yourself - go ahead! It works.
