Greetings everyone, I am a 16 year old male from Australia. I have known of the NoFap community for about 3 years (due to the memes) but have only considered taking it seriously since the beginning of this year. I was first introduced to porn when i was around 10 years old, and since then, my life has gone downhill. I let myself devolve into a socially anxious shell of a person, with lack of motivation to do anything. Ever since i have fallen into this vortex of pornography, my grades have taken a hit, and i have fallen behind in several of my classes. I have always used porn as an escape from reality, but recently i have abused it and have let myself reach this new low. It’s completely drained me and ruined me. This is why I have finally decided to officially join the NoFap crew, to begin a new chapter and turn things around for myself. I‘m grateful for this digital space and the hope that it provides. I would also like to find an accountability partner who is around my age (15-18 years old). I’m excited to begin this journey! So far, i have only been able to reach a streak of 5 days. I find myself unable to contain sexual energy to fight the urges, and i wish to learn to control it. Thanks!
