Age 28 – It took me over 2 years of serious trying

I am finally qualified to make a post in this part of the forums [30-day streak]. Great!

In 2020, I thought I had my life in good order – a job lined up, daily fitness training, a supportive family, and a girlfriend. I thought I was good in regard to mastering my body and mind.
Then I heard the quote: “Try quitting porn and you’ll find out if you’re addicted.” And to my shock, and shame, I couldn’t quit. In fact, every time I tried to quit, at the end of a hard day or hard couple of days I would find myself back to *fap fap fap* with more intensity and excitement than the last time. Pathetic, I’d think to myself.

I joined the forums. Read some stories: “I’ve been on NoFap for 7 years before I reached 90 days.” “I’ve been on NoFap for 3 years before I reached 30 days.” It’s okay, you always reach your goals and do most things well. This is no different.
Well fuck. This has been one of the hardest things to accomplish in my life and it’s taken me 2 years of serious trying to reach 30 days.

2022 has been a rollercoaster for me, in more ways than one. When I fapped and looked at porn, it’s been less than 5 times each month. So I’m definitely improving. And if I’ve learned anything, it’s that I’m not out of the woods yet. But, I am definitely moving in the right direction. 2023, here we come! Evils of this world (porn), I will conquer you!
