Talk openly with them about it, let them know you won't hate them if they have a problem with it.  But also how addictive and dangerous it is, and how it effects the brain.

Day 19: today was okay. I had brain fog because I MO'd last night.


It won't happen again.

I will update this page once a week from now on and I'm going to use a physical journal for now.

I may update more than once a week, but every Tuesday I will post.

I am not going to reset my counter and or anything because I havnt looked at full P.  Even though I have looked at P substitutes a few times.  I will be able to get through this.
Thanks for reading (:

Day 18: today is going good!
I think having a girlfriend is definitely a big help.
A lot of the brain fog is gone and I feel better.

I have more overall energy!

Day 16: today was good.  My entire week last see was terrible. But I got through it.
I have MO'd a couple times I think 3 times in total in this reboot. BUT NEVER AGAIN.  I feel so strong now.

I am now dating someone, and I promised myself that I wouldn't look at P, P substitutes or M or M to O,  While we are dating I see it as a good thing that we are dating it provides encouragement through this. 

Things are looking good.

I'm going to start going to the gym Monday's Wednesdays and Fridays with my friend.  So that will be great.  I'm going to be his personal trainer kind of.  He wants me to help him build some muscle before swim season starts back up.

I will start writing daily again.
Good luck guys!

Quick update 2: I have been having some intense mood swings!  Like from happy to extremely depressed.  I also feel empty.  Like I have broken up with a girlfriend, but I haven't.

Quick update: I'm not sure if I'm bipolar or if it's a withdrawal symptom, but I think I'm bipolar so when I see my doctor in like a month or 2 I'll ask what they think.

Day 9: Today went very well, I slept over at c's house, and today we went go carting. 

No urges at all

I didn't take my medicine today, and I noticed that I really do need it to focus. 

Tonight I got. Little bit of homework that I'll do and then I'm going to sleep. 

Today was good, hopefully tomorrow will be too!

Good luck to everyone who is reading this!

Day 8: so I haven't been able to post on here since Monday because I had my friend C put a lock on my phone that restricted every site with adult content, and it blocked this site, so I had my friend unlock this site.  So I will be back to my daily posts on here.  So let me catch everyone up.

The past week was really rough.  I got little sleep and had high stress.  I told the girl that I liked, that I liked her.  ( she likes me and we talked about what our next step is, we decided to stay friends, and if we still have feelings for each other in a year from now, that we would consider dating.).
I hung out with friends last night! Which was Valentine's Day, so that was pretty fun.

I have only had one problem with PMO this reboot, and it was 3 days ago.  It wasn't to P but I MO'd to a model.  I'm not going to count it as a setback but if it happens again I will.  My friend has been a huge help when it comes to this reboot!

I feel like I'm going to make my goal of 365 days clean!

Good luck to everyone!
Thanks for reading.

Day 4:  I woke up at 7:30 this morning which was really nice because I normally wake up at 5:25!  Anyway I went to the doctor today, I made sure I was as social as possible and it went pretty well, there were times when I felt uncomfortable but I did good with my social skills.  She decided to increase the milligrams of medication I am going to be taking. Overall it was good.  I have no urges to look at P and I have been reading the bible more!  I feel like I am going to go all the way in this reboot.

Day 3:  this was yesterday but I'll write it today.
Yesterday was great! I went to the mall after school to meet up with two of my friends because it was Tuesday, and every Tuesday we have small group meeting.  Anyway I had C put a lock on my phone so that I wouldn't be able to go on P websites.  We talked about some things and then we decided we should see a movie, so we invited a couple of friends to come.  We watched the movie and it ended pretty late such was rough but I was allowed to wake up later today because I had a doctors appointment.  Over all it was a good day.

Day 2:      My day 2 was two days ago but I'm going to post it today because I didn't have time to write it yesterday.
So I told C about the fact that I struggle with P and he took it very well.  He said he has struggled with it in the past a lot and he still does every now and then. 
I think having him to keep me accountable is going to be really important in my reboot. 
I'm  going to help keep him accountable because he wants to quit too. 
No PMO today.
I have also changed my goal to 365 days.  I'm hoping after a year I will no longer have trouble with wanting to look at it all the time, and I won't have to be as extremely alert about it as I am now.
I was up until 1:00 am doing homework and so school was hard.

Hey man, I know how you feel.  But because PMO is the cause if escape from PMO you will escape from these horrible thoughts. 
After about 14 days of freedom you will feel so much better! 

I believe in you.  I know you can make it through this.

Good luck man.

Day 1: I'm staring over today.  Yesterday I PMO'd 2 times and the day before I did it once.  But today i am telling one of my good friends about it.  On here I'm going to call him C.  So tonight I'm gonna tell C that I need help and I'm going to check in with him every day.  I feel like he will definitely be able to help me through this and i really do think this is the next step in my recovery. 

I hope that yesterday was the last day I will see P in my life.

See you guys tomorrow.  Love life, love God, and love people, not pixels.

Day 12: I decided I'm not going to count yesterday as a restart.  I'm going to just keep pushing.  But because of the fact that I relapsed I am going to follow through with the promise I made to myself.  "If I relapse one more time, I am going to tell someone about this and have them do weekly check ups on me."
I don't know who I am going to tell but it is going to be someone this week. 
I am also going to try to sleep better every night.
I'm getting my driving learners permit tomorrow which is really exciting hopefully that will help with how I am feeling.

The other rule is if I PMO one more time I am going to reset my counter.  I'm using a "2 strikes your out"  idea.
Good luck to everyone.

Just relapsed and PMOd. Feeling discouraged but then again I made it to a week and this gives me an oppertunity to build better habits while tearing down this old one.
Good job on one week man.  Don't feel too discouraged, it's just a bump in the road on your way to recovery. 
But definitely don't use this as an excuse to go on a binge. 
A lot of times after a relapse people binge like crazy.  So just don't allow it and you should feel better in a couple of days.

day 11: I want to die.
Today I M until O and I am furious about it.  I did it while watching a YouTube video of a girl in a bikini.  Knowing this makes me so pissed I don't know what to do with my life.  I was doing so well everything was amazing and now I'm up late stressed, depressed, and filled with hatred again.  I'm going to use this anger to support me through staying away from PMO from no on!  NO ONE EXCEPTIONS.  I am pissed and I don't know weather or not to reset my counter and start back on day 1 or not. 

Should I start back at day 1??? Pease answer.

I feel like I should but I don't want to because I feel like I was doing so good, and I don't plan on going back to that.

I'm sorry ):
Good luck to everyone.

Day 9: had a strong urge today but it went away.  I went to my friends house and then to another friends house to watch the super bowl.  It was a good time.  And I didn't PMO today.
My sleep has been really bad lately I have been waking up like 2-4 hours earlier than I should be and its keeping me from getting good sleep

Day 8:. Today I had a few urges, but they were not bad at all.  I found that I was not looking at my female friends the same way; it seems like now we are more on the same level, like I can talk to them eisier.
I was busy all day so that's good.  I went over to my friends house and a couple other friends came over and we went to the park and ibgot some energy out. 

I am really enjoying this reboot and after seeing how nice life is without PMO it really is hard to think about letting myself back into that life.
Good luck to everyone reading this!
Thanks for reading (:

Day 7 update:  I am finding it wierd that I am not really having any urges at all!  They just don't exist and when they do I can get them to leave so quickly.  I'm very surprised because last time I tried I was having so many urges it wasn't even funny.  But now things seem more calm. 
Tomorrow I'm going to my friends soccer game, and some other friends are going to be there!  So that will be fun.  We will probably also go to lunch together.  And this Sunday is the super bowl and I might go to my friends house to watch it. But I'm thinking that I might stay home and go to bed really early instead.
See you guys tomorrow, thanks for reading.
Good luck to everyone!

Congrats on 4 days,  the fist week is really hard,  just don't allow yourself to fall back down. 

Heres a list of things that I find to be helpful
1. Going outside (without a phone/ tablet) until the urge dissipates
2. Taking a short 10-20 minute nap (NEVER more than 30 minutes though)
3. Finding a friend or family member to talk to.
4. Take off the passcode from you phone, and don't put one one again.
5. Eat some fruit, and maybe a slice of turkey.
6. Meditate (breath in slowly through your nose and breath very slow out of your mouth) while you do this try to push all thoughts from your head and have your mind be as empty as possible.
7. Read the bible and take your time in it, I recommended Romans chapters 6-8 to help with addiction
8. Excersize, it can be jump ropes, running, weight lifting, swimming, or some push-ups and sit ups.
9. Try to disconnect your urges from your mind while your eyes are closed and your breathing slowly, try to just push it away and watch it while it raises and lowers.
10. Come on to this forum and help other people, read up on their struggles and give them tips, encouragments, and a virtual high five!
11. Hang out with friends as often as you possibly can.  This will keep you busy
12.  Take a walk it can be good to get some fresh air.
13.  Limit how much you allow yourself to use the Internet.  Try to spend less than 10 minutes online every day
Hope that list helped! If one thing doesn't work then go to the next and just keep going down the list until the urge is gone.
Good luck!

Congratulations on 20 days!  Keep on going.  Just don't look back, not even for a second.  The longer you go without PMO the better the quality of life gets!  Just remember that.
Good luck!

25
Congrats on 31 days!  That's amazing!  I haven't made it that far yet, but your story is encouraging to me.  I'm 15 years old and addicted to PMO so If it helps knowing there are guys all ages going through the same thing as you then good.  if you get any urges try doing some breathing excersizes,  just close your eyes and breath in through your nose slowly, and out of your mouth very slowly, do this for about 5 minutes a day.  As your relaxed and breathing try to just push the urge from your head. 
Good luck man!
