Question about progress
« on: June 15, 2014, 10:43:15 PM »
Currently on day 23.  No pmo.  Kinda confused about my progress.  No morning wood, I occasionally get erections if I think of a past physical experience.  No spontaneous erections though.  Libido feels at a minimum, but I occasionally have urges.  Decided to cut out m completely (instead of waiting til a successful reboot and then going back to it) after seeing some nice improvements in other parts of my life (acne gone, more drive).  How far along the reboot process do yall think I am?  Does it sound like I'm making progress?

Absolutely making progress. Don't judge yourself by random erections and the like. You will not go from PIED to a walking sex monster. Just keep chipping away. It'll get even better as more time goes by.

I know how eager you are to get back in the swing of things but this isn't a race.
I would work on the reboot day after day. Some days will be good and others will be bad.
It's a battle and it's not like there is this magical number of days that you will be fixed.
The reboot helps rewire your brain and condition your thinking.

The only way to kind/sorta predict how long a reboot is going to take for you is your pornography history. How often you used, when you started using, if your tastes accelerated, etc. However, even this is a pretty inaccurate way of telling how long it will take you/where you are in your reboot just because there is so much variability person to person.

The totally unpopular answer: honestly, just keep trucking, grinding days and forget you even had a problem in the first place! The best rebooters are the ones who are able to fill the void in their life with something else and keeping moving forward.

You sound like you are well on your way though, man. 3+ weeks is a great accomplishment!
