    Pushing back!

    Don't pay too much mind to it, all of those thoughts are the porn talking and do not reflect on you as a person in any way at all. I know we'll both overcome our relapses and get there!

    Day 61 - struggling, but need to keep going!

    Thanks man, that is something I will try. I had things under control during my previous streak and was able to use my laptop without searching for porn, but it is something I need to train myself to do again now.

    Day 61 - struggling, but need to keep going!

    Day 2 Another relapse today. Put simply, I became complacent and I took for granted that I could do exactly the same things that I have been doing during my previous streak, thinking that my levels of defenses would be the same. Before I knew it, I was in bed with my laptop and PMOing, without...

    Day 61 - struggling, but need to keep going!

    Thanks for your words of support guys. I am feeling encouraged this morning; I had the same vivid, enjoyable non-porn dreams I have been having during the later parts of my streak last night and after waking up this morning, I had absolutely zero desire to PMO. When I have relapsed previously...

    Day 61 - struggling, but need to keep going!

    Day 115 I relapsed today. I couldn't handle the chaser effect from the first wet dream of my reboot on the night of Day 113 (which included a brief PMO theme) and had two 5 minute PMO sessions this morning. So it's back to Day 1 from tomorrow. I am remaining positive though, as this has been...

    Feeling aesexual. Did PMO do that to me?

    This is something that I am trying to discover during my reboot. I have never really been interested in sex at any point in my life, more in romantic relationships. I don't know whether this is because of using porn since my early teenage years or whether it is my natural inclination. I don't...

    Day 61 - struggling, but need to keep going!

    Day 106 Nothing much to add today, except an accidental glimpse that has given me a pounding headache that I am still recovering from. At work, part of my job is running my team's social media accounts. These days, I stay completely off them and logged out unless I absolutely have to log in...

    Well done for not looking at porn though, and it is 22 days more without porn that you have done, look at it that way. For me, focusing on making sure I don't engage in any past behaviours has been crucial. This means no touching or fantasy whatsoever. If fantasy does appear in my head, I focus...

    Day 61 - struggling, but need to keep going!

    Thanks man, I appreciate it! Day 105 My streak is still going strong, but it is a real slugfest at the moment keeping urges at bay. Now it knows I am serious about giving up porn for good, my mind seems to be engaging a guerrilla warfare campaign against me. I now have to scroll quickly past...

    Is worth quitting porn/masturbation if you gonna die a virgin?

    It isn't a quick process, it will take time. Every single person on this forum will have relapsed many times before reaching any sort of streak. Remember, you have taken a big first step by logging on to the forum and realising the harm that porn can do.

    RECOVERY & BEYOND

    Congratulations on making it so far! I have worked in toxic workplaces before and I cannot even imagine trying to reboot while working in some of the places I have worked in the past, so all credit to you. Hopefully you can move jobs soon, in my opinion a lot of what you are feeling at the...

    Is worth quitting porn/masturbation if you gonna die a virgin?

    As someone who is also quitting porn without any realistic possibility of having sex in the future (due to being in a long term asexual relationship), here are my reasons for quitting: Feeling morally better about myself. Before I began my reboot, I felt that I was always hiding myself from...

    Pushing back!

    Just a thought on avoiding social media triggers, I also run my work's Facebook/Twitter/Instagram account and it has been a challenge in the past not to let my mind wander while using them. Could you sign up to a social media management platform like Hootsuite? That way, you can schedule posts...

    Day 61 - struggling, but need to keep going!

    Day 100 Made it to triple figures! I'm doing a lot better than I was last week, though I have had to beware of just how many cues are out there. This week, I have been triggered by a female friend's beach photo (which I didn't know existed) when adding her to a WhatsApp group and also by...

    I think you may have been referring to me here (I might be wrong!) but I have taken a lot of inspiration from this post. I think it is a really good analogy to use about making lifelong habits, I have done this with exercise already so I am going to take a lot of the habits and lessons I learned...

    Zander Reboot - Light at the end of the tunnel

    Keep going man! I have read through pretty much the whole thread today and the way that you simply won't give up even when you have relapsed in the past is very inspiring. It may take a while, but I know you'll get there, we all will!

    Day 61 - struggling, but need to keep going!

    Hi everyone, I have never really been one for journaling my thoughts, but as I sit here on the morning of Day 62 of my streak, my temptation has never felt higher. So I?m putting my energy into typing this, in the hope that I can channel some of it. I will try to update this as much as possible...
