    Porn is not an option

    Yeah there's actually a ton of research out there showing that men today have waaaay lower sperm counts and higher infertility rates vs. 3-4 decades ago, same with T as you point out. I read a report called 'you are not the man your father was' which talked about this (rough title lol). I think...

    I will make it -- Looking forward to taking my life back

    Day 263 - All good on the home front. Had a great MO a few days ago, I'm in the rhythm. The pathways of getting hard to porn are definitely dying, I wouldn't say it's 0% arousal 100% of the time to certain scenes in regular TV shows / movies, but maybe 0% about 50% of the time, and 10-20% in the...

    I will make it -- Looking forward to taking my life back

    Day 260 -- Just checking in, no big things to say. One thing that crossed my mind is that I guess I haven't experienced some of the things certain rebooters talk about (way more confidence, music sounds better, etc). Not complaining though! I didn't go in expecting that stuff -- and besides I...

    Porn is not an option

    My man, you are too kind! Hey that's an awesome goal, ultimately porn is one of those central issues that can subtly and not so subtly screw up a lot of things in our lives. So staying porn-free should naturally be at the top of the list. Definitely good to see though that you're pairing that...

    I will make it -- Looking forward to taking my life back

    Thank you my man. I suspect quitting porn is just the beginning, it helps your life a LOT but there's a lot of other areas for improvement too...at least in my experience. I can't control the world, but I can control myself. And there's a bunch of things I really need to improve on to get to...

    Porn is not an option

    Love it man! Just remember if you feel things going the wrong way, an MO / sex is waaaay better than relapsing. If you think thought that it'll make the 517 day milestone even more special and you can do it, then hell yeah get after it! The sickness that is porn is losing it's hold over you, no...

    Day 258 -- Another strong MO last night, and I didn't feel remotely horny. Anyway, I promised to make a Goals post for 2023 so here it is: 1. Continue staying away from porn and rebooting. Just gotta stay the course here, might try kegels at some point but it may not be needed anyway given how...

    I will make it -- Looking forward to taking my life back

    Day 256 -- Just reflecting that the thought of porn doesn't get me going anymore. Some days it's like a 0/10, others maybe a 2/10 when I think about some of those really weird scenes that I used to get excited to. For any folks out there who are early in their journey, it really does get easier...

    Porn is not an option

    100%. I don't get women who try to be overly masculine, there are very important biological differences that you just can't wash away with political propaganda. At the end of the day, women like an in-shape, assertive man(not aggressive / controlling though, there's a difference). This is...

    I will make it -- Looking forward to taking my life back

    Day 251 -- MO's are really darn hard now (8 out of 10, maybe a 9 in some cases) and even when I stop touching my dong I'm staying fairly hard for longer and longer periods of time. Yesterday I was just touching it without really even thinking about women and I was getting hard! I don't know if...

    Porn is not an option

    Brother I feel like a child all the time it feels. Having some child-like qualities is not bad -- and I'm referring that sense of wonder children have, that incredible excitement and curiosity for the simplest of life's pleasures (hanging with a buddy, going to the aquarium, playing a new video...

    I will make it -- Looking forward to taking my life back

    Thanks so much for this super thoughtful reply Blondie! Some really good ideas here, the two second rule is probably the best way to go about this for now. I like the distinction you made that if you're not going to approach, then there's no point to keep staring (especially as you don't want to...

    Day 250 -- When I used to see this on the YBOP Success Stories page, I used to think 'man 250 days so so far away.' Amazing that it just feels natural by this point. So where am I today / on average in terms of healing? My best guess is around the 2/3 mark to fully healed. Since everyone defines...
