Im here to introduce myself to everyone out there and i have a few questions. Im happy to say that i have signed up to this  website. Where do i begin? What are somethings that you can remember that really works when just getting started with all of this? There are so many different avenues with this program i fell a bit overwhelmed. 
I would love for you to tell me and help me with some of the things that worked for you so that i can start this journey.

Welcome! you did a great first step by coming out and posting on the forum, keep on posting and share your struggles, the more you share the more help can be sent your way.
Some things that help me. Reaching out, on the forum or to some real people, that could take some time, till you get a comfort level that works for you.
Keeping away from lust, on the street or on the computer, not even small bites.
Good filters are crucial.
There is a lot more, and I'm sure others will share.

Do something positive to take your mind off the urges:

1.) Go for a walk.
2.) Read
3.) Call a friend
4.) Cook a meal
5.) Daven
6.) Study

Also try to understand why you have the urges - is it lust?
Or a deeper depression/loneliness that means you have to take a thorough assesment of your life?
