My story is not too noteworthy when it comes to the NoFap journey. I'm dealing with several of the same problems and challenges that many of you surely are. I'm on the precipice of adulthood and figured it was time to build a better life for myself -- one with more fulfillment and less loneliness and frustration. More love and less self-absorption. New Years 2015 seemed like the right time, and after 30 days of successfully abstaining from porn, I'm ready to face the full challenge head on. That's it. My tale isn't that special. But we (all of you) are special in choosing to reject the cultural norms of pornography and over-sexualization. We're the resistance, and I'm happy to be a part of it.
