Rebooters,

I felt led to write a post introducing myself as I will be helping with forum maintenance from this account. I don't want to feel mysterious or anonymous, even though my credentials and username suggest that I should remain that way.

My name is Matthew, and I developed the new forum platform (and front-facing website, rebootnation.org) that was just rolled out to you. I'm 20 years old and I met Gabe through a mutual friend. I instantly latched onto the idea and loved the concept of a community such as this. Reading many of your stories has inspired me in my own walk fighting the temptations and struggles of this world.

While I can't speak to a story of my own that reflects anecdotally what most of you have come to this community to overcome, I do understand deeply. I hope to come alongside you and support you wherever you are on your journey, as well as supporting the logistics of this new forum platform.

~Matthew

Thanks for the introduction. Until reading this post, I was under the impression that it was Gabe under an alternate, so it is definitely helpful.

Man, if I had the evidence in front of me that you have now when I was 20... it boggles the mind!

Nice to meet you, Matthew! I'm really blown away and impressed by the quality of website you've created for this community.

I also appreciate your warm empathy toward those of us who've struggled, really, against ourselves to end this addiction.

To a young man, such as yourself, I can say with utmost sincerity and soberness, let these stories you encounter burn deep into your own soul/psyche, as a person can literally become 'another man' in a matter of a decade or less, for good or for evil. Take our struggles, and learn from them, not only to help others, but to help yourself as well. I say this as a person who was warned at 24 years of age by his driving instructor, "Remember Solomon, how wise he was, but how hard he fell because of surrounding himself with women (insert here: pornography)...", and his words came true as in a few years, a turn of events, and I found myself in such an addiction... And now, at 54 years of age, and thanks to God, I am finally overcoming this thing...

Thank you again for your quick and professional response to the issue I had yesterday with 'editing'. I'll let you know if there's other issues or bugs I encounter.

Blessings to you!

Thus my introducing myself. I'm glad to help as I can.

Thanks for being willing to share your story, @Phineas 808. I can't begin to imagine how difficult it must be to be your age and still carrying around this burden with you. I won't begin to say I could know what your mind is like.

I'm glad to help and pour into this community as best as I can from my place in my life. I hope I'm an encouragement to you!

You definitely are an encouragement, brother! So grateful that, when you could do so many other things, that you chose to be instrumental in our lives.
