I am 16.
I found out about porn from a young age. Ever since then it has left a lasting impression on me and once I hit puberty I developed a habit of visiting the same porn sites every day, to get that same dopamine hit and I would keep ramping it up day by day.
When I was 13, I stumbled across a NoFap video by mikkois, now aanghel. This video was what started me on NoFap. I struggled for many many attempts, and I simply couldn't break this seemingly impossible barrier of 90 days.
That is till I came across YBOP.
I truly learned of pornography's harmful effects on the human mind and how it actually addicts people. This is what gave me clarity, and it reduced a lot of my anxieties and worries about leaving porn behind. Combine this with the phenomenal support groups for porn addiction and I am proud to say that I am now a 16 year old who has permanently broken the chains of addiction, and I will never look back.
Gary, I never got to meet you. I wish I could have, as a way to send my respects to you for changing my life. But now I am forced to write this message as a way to pay my respects. It pains me, but I just want to let you know that your effect on humanity will go on for ages and you have done nothing short of amazing for people of all walks of life.
