Starting my reboot and need some support
« on: March 03, 2019, 10:38:04 AM »
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.

Welcome.
Learn from your past incosistencies. What made you relapse? And try to avoid such situations in the future. There is a lot of stuff that for healthy individuum is a normal sexual behaviour but we have to avoid it since it triggers us to return to our porn-masturbation-orgasm addiction.

For example I am minimizing my internet use now after my last relapse. I also found out that journaling daily here helps.
If I were a general and wanted to make enemy's male population completely useless, I would just carpet-bomb them with porn.

Welcome,

Stay strong, only you can help yourself. Watch motivational speeches, read journals, it will help a lot. I am on the 2nd week of rebooting and I feel strong. I feel I hate porn because it is filthy and make you bad form inside.

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!

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.

18 days is great! Next time you beat that. And little by little you are breaking free.
And remember a relapse is a relapse, not the end. Don't give up. Only you can break free, it's all up to you:)
First reboot, august 29, 2018 (49d, 3xPMO slip, no binging)
2nd attempt, october 19, 2018 90 days w/o PMO!



HM from now?

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.

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.

Good to hear on your success bro.  :D  I second your thoughts on exercise. Plus, it really makes a difference in how well you feel. It seems like wanking it and sitting around really lowers your energy, but if you exercise regularly, it lifts you up in a way.

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.

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.

Hey,
I too am struggling a lot, but into my 14th day. And it's my 2nd streak post joining RN. Get issues like random erection, especially post sleep. Get irritated a lot and a lot of body ache. But this time I am not going to get succumbed to all this tantrums. Have to reach 5% reboot journey, which when counted as days looks a lot, but it's just 5%.

And I now can vividly see the issues in my body, due to continuos engagement into P&M of 12 years. Mostly mastrubating daily not only has ruined my physical strength, but also has struck me into broken relationship.

Now I wish and pray that I overcome 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.

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!

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.

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!
