    I have been addicted to masturbation for almost 9 years now, I’m 20 years old, and I have to say that those 9 nine years have been the worst ones of my life.
    It’s not about the social anxiety and other shit, I get along with girls quite well and have more good friends than one could ask for, but I’ve always felt hollow.
    When I see myself in the mirror, I see something I do not like at all. I don’t have clinical depression, but I doubt if I’m truly happy.
    I have been masturbating on an average 3 times for the past 7 years and now that I look back, I can say it that it ruined me.

    In these years my motivation to do any productive work has been the least, in my younger years, I used to do fairly well in by classes but after this addiction, I have become a dud.

    You’ll find all the doctors saying that masturbation is healthy, but when I takes a grip on you, you get addicted to that dopamine rush.
    My sexual desires had gotten weird to bad to the utmost worst, so worse that I cannot even talk about it.
    I’ve recently started on this NoFap journey and I hope it is a long one cause I do not want to go into that hole again.
    That hole filled with self hatred. Cause how can you truly love others when you don’t love yourself.

    To being a man again.
    Thanks for being a part of my journey.

    Hi, welcome to the community

    I would recommend you to stay in touch with members and read their success stories. You may also learn tricks to avoid the short-term pleasure and to face the temptations.

    Be AWARE of your habits and control what you see and what/who you spend your time with.

    It's also important to limit the usage of social media. In addition, never be free! Use your free time as much as possible and do sports, exercise, attend classes, etc.


    This video contains everything that you need to know about porn addiction. Lastly, here is a collection of ways to deal with the urges which worked great for me.

    How do you expect yourself to do productive works when you are rewarding yourself for nothing and losing your finest energy? It won't happen.

    Don't believe this. Each one of us knows instinctively that masturbation and health are poles apart. No man has ever felt healthy after masturbation. It's probably the worst thing for your body, mind and spirit.

    Don't worry about that. It has happened to all of us. Our mind seeks novelty and in this porn-filled easily accessible Internet world, we get astray and start turning to content which we never thought could be possible.

    Take rebooting seriously mate. Stop being a slave to this industry. Wish you all the best.

  8. Hey welcome to the NoFap forum : )

    It's nice to see you here fighting the good fight alongside us!


    First let me go ahead and drop some helpful links for you:

    Getting Started Guide / Forum Rules / How to Use the NoFap forums/ Glossary/ NoFap Panic button / Set up your day counter / Rebooting Resources/ About NoFap/ Support NoFap


    Here is just some advice:


    First and foremost please take a look at each section in the forum, there might be something(s) you may find of big help to you. Feel free to post there :+)


    Then secondly I just advise you to be active on your profile(as there a few active people in the profile section). Please start by choosing an avatar and then make daily status posts to show you're active and needing support/encouragement. They've also got a neat little feature that shows freshly posted statuses for all users to see. People will find your profile and give you encouragement/support.


    Theres a portion of people who love communicating in the profile section..(it should be and is )mostly spportive talk but it doesn't hurt to deviate from supportive talk. It would be great to have you join in and support others in the threads, profiles, and journal. Make sure and be grateful for the help you received and give some help after receiving some. Invest in some people's journeys. We could always use your help and in return you shall receive some as well!


    Thirdly, You should also highly consider creating a public journal/log (in the appropriate section for you) and write about your days in more depth for us members to follow along your journey and offer support to you by way of posting in your journal.


    Last but not least: Good luck on your journey here, make sure to really give it a try with all your heart!

    Bro I've never related more. Everything you just said relates to me. I'm also new here and hoping to recover and live a new life without this heavy load. Let's hope we'll all achieve that as we are here.
