My fellow rebooters, its been a while since my last post and also my last no pmo streak. Im having a hard time staying consistent in my reboot. The last time I had a solid streak of no Pmo I was posting on here more often which is why Ive returned. Im going to post at least once a week to keep track of my progress. Im open to any advice and thank you all in advance for your support, good luck!

Day 14 hardmode
 I had a stressful day and feel like my courage is being tested. There were so many things that almost triggered me to justify a reason to view P which would most likely lead to MO.  I could feel the urge stronger in this moment of pressure from stress than other moments. The thought of going on my fav sites was there but I diverted myself to come on here instead and post a log.  The struggle is real and there’s one thing that I have to give up that I’ve been holding onto that is definitely a trigger for me. Im aware of it and Im going to give it up starting right now. Its gonna be tough fighting multiple vices but I know I can do it and I have to If Im gonna reach a point of permanent change in my life.

Its been a while since Ive wrote a log on here and I wish I could say Im completely P free but Ive relapsed a few times here and there. On a positive note I had another 23 day streak of no PMO hardmode last month before I relapsed and Im currently on an 8 day hardmode streak. My goal is 60 days and reading others stories on here has inspired me when Ive felt tempted. Keeping my i phone on content restriction has been a fail safe for those days that I almost slipped and I recommend it because its very easy to drift off to P on your phone in times of boredom. Anyways, I want to say so far this year has probably been a personal best for how much less P Ive consumed and I want to thank the people who reached out to me on this forum and have shown support. Its been helpful towards my progress and although my journey is far from over Im breaking free and it feels liberating, like Im taking my life back. Good luck to all of you who just joined this forum and are reading this, believe in yourself because You Can Do This!

Thanks for the support Adi. Im on a 23 day streak but almost gave in yesterday night. I felt the urge strongly and watched a few secs of a clip before stopping myself and staying strong. I really am trying to make it to the 60-90 day goal and its been a struggle these past few days. Anybody have some tips or strategies that might help. I know its always up to me being strong but Im open to try new things to keep myself from the temptation and staying focused on the goal I want to reach.

Well its been a while and Im sad to say I caved in on day 33 of my no pmo hardmode streak and went on a small binge the days after but Im back and currently on a 19 day streak. Slowly breaking free and feeling good about these little streaks.

Im happy to say that yesterday was my 30th day no pmo hard mode. Closing in on this last week wasn't easy and I was going thru some stressful moments that almost pulled me towards a clip but I managed to stop myself in that moment with all the strength of my will power. Thinking about how far Ive made it and how horrible it would make me feel to have to start all over again helped me push thru the times I felt vulnerable. 30 days is not much but its defo the longest streak Ive ever had no pmo for at least a decade. Id failed countless times in the past and this feels like an achievement for me. Im ready to go 60 days now and It should be slightly easier but I know that there will be tests along the way. It feels good to finally be breaking free from these chains and I want to thank you guys for the encouragement along my journey.

I haven't posted on here in a while but Im happy to say that Im on my 19th straight day of no pmo hardmode! The first week was extremely rough as I was going thru a lot of mental and emotional stress but I held strong. One thing that worked for me a lot is exercise. Its a confidence booster and also builds discipline cause you gotta dedicate yourself to get out there and do it no matter what. Also meditation had been tremendous. I know 19 days is not much but I believe this is  my longest streak no pmo in years and Im feeling great about making it to 30 days, then 60 and so on. I want to thank you guys for your support. Its definitely been helpful to know Im not alone out here and we are on here because we want to better ourselves. Uplifting each other is a great thing and Im glad some of you took time to reach out to me. It had been a part of my progress these passed few weeks for sure.

My first post was 30 days ago and I feel like I did well with an 18 day streak no pmo to start then around 3-4 relapses but not consecutive days. I believe reading people stories,
People writing inspirational messages to my wall and realizing that Im not alone has been tremendously helpful. I feel like I made good progress in March but Im gonna go further in April.

On the 18th day I relapsed and I now I have to reset the day like Tom cruise in Edge of tommorow. Eventhough I felt pretty shitty about not making it to my goal of 30 days. I learned what triggered me to be vunerable and feel confident that I will get it done this time around. Its only day 2 again now for me so will keep updating as I progress.

1st day/week was tough for me. Im still in the very early stages of my reboot but were all in the same boat to a greater or lesser extent. You will prob have withdrawls and I notuced mine were at a peak in the 1st few days. Writing on here definetly helps and Im almost on my longest streak of no pmo. Keep youself mind full of positive thoughts, read quotes, watch videos etc to keep yourself strong.

15th day no pmo. Temptation is really strong today and Im battling the desire. Had an urge to just take a scroll on my favorite sites but I know that even a scroll at the the new vids feed will definetly lead to failure for what Im trying to accomplish and that thought of starting over again is the only thing keeping me strong. I know this feeling will pass eventully, just gotta stay calm, relax and remind myself about my goals. I believe posting on here when I feel vunerable is helpful and gives me a bit of a release by talking about it. Good luck to all yous out there going thru the same. STAY STRONG, WE CAN DO THIS!

Im on my road to recovery and and have relapsed many times. Ive had several of the same experiences you describe. I tried viagra and it worked sometimes but would always give me a headache after sex. I believe my body built tolerance to it because it stopped working for me and I didnt want to keep taking it because of the side effects. Ive gone with a more natural approach recently. Im only in my 1st week and Ive been very tempted to resort to p because of withdrawls but Ive defo seen immediate results. Im waking up with boners, something I didnt get from before sleep sessions, Ive also been taking supplemants with asian ginseng root, sarsaparilla root, maca root and cardamom pod for system restoration. Regular stretching and exercise to help the blood flow. Im more than 10 years younger but I believe we will be able to restore our sex life back by the no fap and no pmo method. Stay strong buddy.

Porn Addiction / A Poem for inspiration!
« on: March 11, 2019, 06:51:00 PM »
I wrote this as a personal poem but feel it can be inspirational to some of you and want to share it.
Here it goes:

Going in circles
How many times must I reset the day
And play this game
I can change
The inner me wants me to be
To live the change I see
Inside my mind
It wont fall from the sky and save me
I must work hard
Years of energy already in motion
Has to be reversed
My first awakening wasn’t enough
I became focused then slowly the
Momentum faded and back to my
Old ways
All my life Ive never been consistent
Ive been on a mission to clean up
To live in harmony with the one
Ive programmed myself to
Believe that love is sex thru a screen
It seemed like harmless fun at first
Until 18 years of addiction
Has me strung out like heroin
Im better than that and I can
Make my dreams come true
Let love and truth into the heart
Thats the start accept and release
The pain that is the core of this escape
It gave me an easy way to be happy
To forget my problems and live this
Fantasy that came from outer me
Inner me wants real love
Wants to feel the tenderness of a kiss
I want to have sex in a natural way
And clear my mind of the programs
That Ive installed into this hard drive
Called my mind.

Hey, Hope your still going strong, Im on my first full week of no p or m and it was rough. Its those days of vunerability that are the toughest but I know every time I resist my will power gets stronger. The gods have def tested my courage and I feel good about this eventhough I know its just the very beginning.

Whats up guys, Im new to this forum and the idea of rebooting. Im 33 and have had so many similiar experiences that all of you have wrote about here. I havent been consistent with my reboot and I think a support group like this will help keep me on the path to rebooting. This is going to be day one for me and I feel confident with this forum to help me get thru the times it will be tough.
