Welcome in the group everyone! Let’s post daily about our current streak, share thoughts and stuggles, we are all in the right path!
Hello everyone! The goal of this group is to not have a messy forum with hundreds of daily messages, but one where we share our stories and support each other in this path. Here’s my story:
I’ve been fapping since I was a kid, watching porn as soon as my phone had access to internet. Since I shared my room with my brother, I never masturbated much, I was more into alcohol and weed. Once I moved abroad for college, my use of addicting substances increased exponentially. One time I touched rock bottom and I decided to quit drinking and smoking. Now I am in total control of these, while in the meantime, since I finally was not sharing my bedroom, I was fapping more often. I didn’t think much about it, everyone masturbates, I thought it’s just natural. Some homies were talking about nofap challenge, I just saw it as a trend, nothing more. In my last years of uni abroad I realised I was hooked into porn: I wasn’t considering myself addicted to it, but I was finding myself watching porn at least once-twice a day, thinking about it in situations I shouldn’t, and so on. Due to the pandemic now I am back home, my brother moved out and I am living with my parents again. I thought that would have helped me stopping. Back in Scotland I was very active and working on some good habits, then here in Italy I got injured once and I stopped several activities I was enjoying. I thought this injury was the reason why I stopped working on myself, but I recently came to the fact that in the last years, even now at home with my parents, I am masturbating several times each day. I find myself alone at home often, and at night I got my own room… I am sick of this, even this app awarded me with a 1 year reward for being here, and that made me realise that I m fighting and aware of this struggle since last year, and still nothing changed. I even got a caring girlfriend (that does not know this side of me) and I don’t lack social skills. I feel like I waste most of my time at home watching porn and playing videogames, while I should focus on some projects I have, my habits, and definitely my work and uni deadlines. Can someone relate? I wanna make a change and put my shit together, got so many exams this month and I spend all days doing nothing but fapping. Let’s share our stories and try to reach our goals! For me now it’s 7 days streak nofap, then 14, 30, 60, and 90 days!
