Family. (¥E♤R 2♡2| )

Hello my brothers and sisters,
Today is a new day, a new month, and a new year.
I wish you all a happy new year. I can see we are all motivated to do good this year. Now let’s use that motivation to do good. And do not leave it after a week. Be motivated as if it is day 1. For you can not get to day 100 without day 1.
This year is possible to overcome. If you are willing to do so. I ask that you throw all these fears and false desires away. Focus on doing good. For yourself. With God’s help you can do this.
Now, I ask my fellow family that we be more connected. I notice most of the times we have people we message only when were struggling or after a relapse. But we are not just each others friend for advice. We are family. Let’s reach out more so we do not let the adversary isolate us where we have no help and fall into temptation.
Instead of searching for some forbidden man/woman online. Reach out to your family. We are here and love all of you.
(NOTE: While it may sound silly, I highly recommend only reaching out to the same gender for advice if you are struggling. Trust me the enemy is can be very deceiving!)

That said, I welcome everyone to the new year with open arms! If you need help, there are wonderful people here who are willing to help you. All you have to do is ask.

I encourage you to start this month reading this!

I’m sure we all know who is the one always sharing this book. But he does care and it really does help!

I would like to end off by asking you to tell us about yourself. Your journey, your goal, your resolutions, anything you want to share! :partying_face:

Hey brother, good initiative and I really appreciate that you have advised people to connect with people of same gender, since from my own experience I can tell that connecting with opposite sex may worsen the problem.
Anyways, I’m PrDr (short fork of my real name) , and I also went by pseudonym Greene/Greenbull in the past. I am 24yo, from India. I like different things according to time. I have struggled with PMO for nearly half of my life, and got really addicted to it around 7 years ago.

@Yitzchak hey Isaac.
I’m Ash_Matt, which is basically the first three letters of my first and last names. I go by Ash as well to my friends irl.
I’m preparing for pre-med exams (AP for y’all).
My goals are to make it a habit to study 8 hrs daily and get up by 5 daily.
My PMO began in 11th grade when I watched racy videos on YouTube. By God’s grace, I have not watched any nudity or visited any porn sites ever. Masturbating also was a problem for me from a younger age than porn. Now I am working on destroying both with God’s help.

Hey @Ash_Matt
We have spoken before xd. But I really do appreciate the introduction since I did not know that. My goals are also to study a lot as I’m headed to college this month.
I too started masturbation around 11th grade. There was this very nice girl that I wanted to impress. Unfortunately, I procrastinated and preferred my ready available desires of PMO and I never had the confidence to talk to her. After a couple years I need to change for myself. To do better.
And so here I am :sweat_smile::grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

Hi,
I am Dean , which is my favourite wwe wrestler so I kept it as username. I started M in 11 th class , it was month of December, when I was having off from school and I saw a beautiful girl in my locality , then I searched some wrong things on internet and fell into the trap . Porn is not a problem for me masturbation is .
I became an addict in March 2020. And I’m preparing for my engineering exam.As I want to work in Google .

@Yitzchak Hey buddy, the name is rewire_user, I don’t know why I wrote this name :sweat_smile:, At that time, I wasn’t aware of the forum. So, I was reading quotes which come in the bottom of your counter page. And the quote was given by a rewire user. Hence, the name. :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:
I am preparing for Engineering exams to get a decent college. My aim is to study minimum 8 hrs daily effectively and Getting in a habit of waking up early in the morning.
I was addicted to PMO from a very long time.
I got to know about nofap in 10th,
I always feel regret after doing it (PMO). Though I wasn’t aware of nofap.
Then I found out by the grace of god, shwetabh gangwar’s videos, my brother told me about him, and nofap too. And then he also told me about this app. And finally I am here.
Now, With this new year, I am gonna destroy this addiction. With the help of god.
Happy New year bro.

@Dean_Ambrose @rewire_user
Wowie! Are you two preparing for the same engineering exams? Or are they different areas?
It’s a bit strange how that works where I live!
But that would be great. You two will have great careers, God willing!

Hey Isaac! I’ll call you that, I love that name! I’m GOVIND-19. But my name is Alan. I’m in law school and it’s my 4th year. I’m an artist by hobby and talent but since it’s not a “real job” according to my parents, I chose law, even though I don’t like it. I don’t think I’ll be a lawyer. I’m trying to figure out what I’ll be. But I want to join the navy! I really do hope I get into it. That’s why I workout religiously

Hey Isaac
Iam @Human108, i just chose this username because i thought iam just another human struggling with PMO. My sharing code is lenbkb
My real name is Parth and iam a 17yr old Boy
I got exposed to Porn at a very young age and not even by my own will but somehow! Started masturbation around 4-5 years ago. That time in early years it was just for fun but i realised around 3years it has became an addiction. From then i am struggling. Around 1-2 years back i was able to control myself for about 6 months through meditation, studying scriptures and associating with really nice people and last year my streak went as high as 7months but then i got extreme cravings! So i lost. But now iam here in this community i am currently on my highest streak 27 days and still going on. I am studying for Engineering Entrance exam as well as for my high school.
This year Iam taking resolution to be the person i really want to be. A servant of God. Iam currently bound to my duties and i need to and i will fulfill that also but i really want to dedicate my this Life to God and PMO is a big hurdle. So iam gonna focus myself on that. So yeah this is me. Constantly struggling but somehow still

Hey @GOVIND-19 !
That is so cool! I currently do music production!(which I’m told is not a real job either!)
So I am studying software Development. But you know, side hobbies too!!
Currently working on my EP and could use an artist wink wink!
I’m trying to figure out some things myself too. It’s been tough with my mind bombarding me :sweat_smile:
But I’m glad you’re doing well. Law school is something I’d like to do later in life! Let’s run for office!!

Hey @Human108 ! Thank you for sharing!
You know, fapping is a very powerful temptation which I too have gone through. It’s had me thought things I wish I didn’t have. Currently struggling with thoughts and I hope they will go away one day.
God is great and we must trust in Him!
He has a plan for us!

Hi @Yitzchak or isaac i’d like to use isaac i love it .
You can call me @Midoriya-Izuku , i chose my name because it is the name of my favourite anime character from *boku no hero * , iam 22 , iam studying mechanical engineering .
My addiction started since i was 14 for 7 years , it really destroyed me my mental phisical health , it made me can’t understand or focus on what iam studying so i get low marks every year and that made me disappointed.

Last year i was fed up i hated myself , one day after failing in the year project on the commute and it was night i went for awalk before going home i remembered mychildhood before faping when i was 13 iwas very smart and clever i felt that ineed to cry but i can’t , i decided to stop faping .

After 10 days - i think - i relapsed . And without any evidence someone i was caring about alot shocked me by unreasonable treatment.

Ifelt broken and disappointed, i decided to be another person the best version,icommet to take no fap seriously this time .
I succeeded!!! With 110 days strike
I read books , played sports , and lost about 30 kg !! (About 66 pound ), but i relapsed , this person finally chose to be more far.
Then I chose to let her go but i lost my why power ( i have no reason to stand up again).
I succeeded for 65 but relapsed again then 30 the 7 then nothing .
2 days ago i wrote that in this app (not in forum ) i got many supporting messegs from many people, it really motivated me​:heart::heart:
About goals
Last 110 strike i pust a goal to read books and lose weight. And I succeeded el hamd lellah (thanks good) .this one i put a goal to run a complete marathon and to read more books (u can kindly recommend books)

I sorry for this long :sweat_smile::sweat_smile::sweat_smile:

Hey @Midoriya-Izuku !
What an inspiring story. 110 days is not easy!
Sorry to hear about the things that have happened. In someway, I’ve been there. It’s not easy, but we can overcome it! Just trust in Jesus!
I would like to recommend this book to start with. It’s great!

There are lots of wonderful truths if you truly seek them! God bless.
