56th day. I think that i've just started to see some benefits in my mind and approach to life. Not sure if it's connected with the reboot but i suppose it is. I'm a little bit more relaxed and I also care about my family much more. It's so great to feel much more than a constant arousal  ;D

Best wishes guys

I don't know if it's just me but, after giving a rest to my dopamine for 2 weeks, I started liking some things more. I found myself doing something and feeling like I enjoyed it so much. I said: "Why am I enjoying this so much, man? In the past I would've barely touched it." Maybe by giving the dopamine a rest from all the abuse, it could do it's job better.

Thank you guys. Yes - abstaining from dopamine rush is crucial during reboot. Maybe it's crucial in life generally, hmmm

60th day. I'm very happy to be clean from PMO for two months. Caravings are much smaller and I've started to be happier a few days ago. I'm not sure if it's strictly connected with the reboot but i think so. it remains to be seen what the future holds, anyway i'm happy now&here.

Good luck to all of you

Excess kills you. Maybe not now but in time. Porn is slow death. Slow emotional death. Porn will never kill you but, if you wake up one day and feel "dead", that's what I'm talking about. Too much is poison. Even water kills, when drank too much (go check this out). Too much dopamine "kills". Keep dopamine in normal levels. Some things are designed to give us just enough dopamine. Porn is not this.

Thank you guys!

64th day and some cravings are coming back. Like WTF, why? Probably because i MO'ed yesterday, so I don't really recommend that during reboot. But on the other hand it's really helpful, especially in the first days of quitting porn (for me, maybe not for everyone). Today I'll just avoid triggers and it's going to be ok. 9 weeks without p is great!

Good job, man. Awesome progress.

I MO-ed too, on Sunday, and it put me into a flatline-like state. I haven't had urges for 2 days.

71st day without PMO. Last days were quite hard. I still have a feeling that reboot doesn't have a huge impact on my life as I thought before DAY 1. I know that these days are only numbers and that process isn't linear but I still have some doubts.

Anyway more than 10 weeks without P is a big success and i keep going! :)

Amazing, Dusty! 71 days is substantial progress. Rebooting definitely has an impact on your life but maybe you're expecting other things? Think about it, porn is poison so getting rid of it goes without saying, before anything else.

Thank you Lero!

77th day. It's pretty ok. Sometimes I have some urges but they are not so hard to overcome. Probably I'm more relaxed but I'm not sure about this. What I usually do is observing myself and comparing my mood and behaviour to the time before the reboot.

It's important to keep that in mind to remain aware of the progress that happened, keep going, you've come very far yet!  :)

92nd day. The longest streak without P probably since I've first seen my first p movie. Yep, I see some benefits. I feel healthier. Nothing really special, but it's better to be free from compulsive PMOing like a teenager  ;D

It's not a hard mode, I MO time to time. Maybe once a week. I also have sex with my GF.

93rd day. I saw porn for 10 seconds today. Read an article about one of the p webite filmed a movie about beach pollution. There was a link to p video and clicked it. I don't count this as a relapse because i shut off the site quickly. Anyway it's a red flag for me surely. It's probably because I have no motivating goal after 90 days completed...

I'd be very careful dude, definitely stay busy for the next few weeks.  You're in a danger zone.  Stay positive and keep doing the good habits that got you this far.  You can do it!

100th day. So happy to be PMO free for one hundred days. I feel better, less timid, my social anxiety is lower for sure. Changes are not spectacular for sure but I think it's a great thing to live without frequent PMOing. I have some thoughts about reboot and porn to share but need some more time to get that down here.

Best luck guys

Hello dusty. Congratulations for making it so far.
Stay on the course and be strong.

Maybe you havnt experienced as many benefits as you expected because you still MO ?
Something to consider.

Also i am looking forward to read what you have to say about reboot and P.

Best regards.

Congratulations dusty!  Just be careful for the next few weeks though, from reading other people's journals, a lot of people slip around day 100-113.
