The way I’m which technology has put us the “rebooters” at an advantage is it has brought all of us together “in it” and we are all learning from each other and being encouraged and cheered by one another.
Yes, that's true. Without the Internet, we wouldn't be able to gather in one place and exchange experience and information. And also, be able to be anonymous, because opening up about this in person can be scary. I haven't told anybody yet in real life.

some of us may master the “sobriety” way of life we are all wishing for our selves before we are gone and some of us may die struggling to attain it , a few may drop out thinking it’s not possible for real . So let us all introspect which one of these we want to be ! in the end !

That's what scares me: That I could turn this rebooting process into a "Relapse/Restart" treadmill for life. That's why I think I've been kind of desperate lately to make it work. I'm 31 years old. When I was 28 I said that I didn't want to be a porn addict in my 30s. And here I am. I don't want to carry this with me in my 40s but it could happen just like that. Time flies very fast and then one day you wake up and say: "Holy shit! I'm 50 years old, bro!" Then you log in to Reboot Nation and write "Day 1 I can't do this shit nomo, man!" The idea of literally never being able to quit this is a reality that I want to change. But if I keep going in the same way, same routine, the same every year, starting with huge motivation at the beginning of the year, achieving a longer streak by summer, failing and then being exhausted mentally by the end of the year and "letting myself go" a little bit, I will very well "achieve" the great achievement of running the "Relapse/Restart" treadmill in my 50s.

Day 4

Four days but I'm tempted.
Good thing to realize you are tempted. Remember all the things you've used to motivate yourself! You don't want this for you, which is sometimes enough motiviation. But, remember, you are a part of a whole. What you do matters and echoes throughout humanity. Kind of scary, but it can be helpful. You also don't want this for humanity! You want to be a part of a generation of men who turned from self gratification and the objectification of women!

Day 5

I had a porn dream. I was looking for the first softcore movie I've watched but I couldn't find it. Then, in the dream, I started edging to flashbacks of that movie. I woke up with some pretty serious urges.

I speak from my personal experience and I am of the idea that we can react in different ways at times but that there is only one way to get rid of this damn addiction that is a nice reboot .. when I see how now my mind works well that I have more courage to face and talk to people and i feel stronger physically and i feel good about myself like i never think about how stupid i have been in the past and i will tell you more i discovered since august the NOFAP first never heard of why it is a taboo topic that scares those who suffer from it to talk about it and because the current society incentivizes porn for all the money that goes ... I had already tried NOFAP in the past for a few weeks 2 or 3 at most and I had noticed positive results but then maybe i thought i was better for other personal reasons and i thought jerking off to porn can't hurt like society makes us believe thankfully then i discovered the NOFAP and it made me realize the reality

I am pretty tempted but I have to go to night shift and I'm trying not to do anything stupid until then. I can see the repetitive behavior going on in my head.

The lower brain wants what it wants, but treat it like an unwanted ex.

The repetitiveness is its weakness, because you can recognize it and hack into it, by doing something different. Keep changing it up, without falling into the same ol' rut.

Repetition is what built the chains, and repetition is what will break them. Repetively dismiss the urges, and you'll change your life.

That's right, man. Repetition gets us addicted, repetition (not repeating the repetitive behavior) will save us.

Stay strong over the weekend. Keep yourself busy. It's great when you do flatline and even with my journey to this point when I have edged or watched I don't get fully aroused. It's our brains training themselves saying no and this isn't real.

I've been binging PMO for 2 days.

Alright. Dust yourself off, and try again. Never give up, bro. Use this as a springboard to reach further, higher.

I've heard this analogy before, that eros (for like desire) is like a bow that even if pulled all the way back can only make the arrow (toward your aim, your goals) go farther.

Our low points are what we make them. Instead of seeing them as defeat or failure, see them as opportunities to learn, to tweek your processes, to refine your plan, and above all, to motivate you toward changing these behaviors.
