    ....I have watched porn a number of times in this streak.......
    That's why many of you will bash my streak.....
    But still going 1 year without masturbation is an achievement for me........
    I was the same guy who masturbated for 5-6 years continuously ......and with a frequency of 5 times per week (approx)
    So this is a big deal for me......
    I will list the little benefits which I have seen in this streak........
    As of now......my complete focus is to abstain from porn......and I am confident that I can conquer this too......
    Also I would like to point out that I had 7-8 wet dreams in this 1 year...... which I consider a sign of improvement......

    yes.......i have heard about it
    also there is an app in my phone which blocks certain porn sites..........but not all
    but i think at the end of the day........its our own determination and strategies which helps us more than a mere app

    Congratulation about no M for one year brother. I maybe wrong, but i think watching P without M even more dangerous, because that mean no orgasm at the end, so your dopamine levels stay high even after you stopped watching those videos. After orgasm prolactin level rise, and dopamine level falls if i remember well.

    Good luck for beating addiction too!

    thaks a lot....
    yes you are right.....but i used to close porn after watching it for just 5 minutes...........this was one of my strategies........and also i try to look the real aspect in porn without considering my fantasies or fetishes........this all helped me to abstain from M .....
    i completely agree with you .......rebooting is basically about fixing the dopamine level.......thats why i accept the bashing........but i have seen little benefits from absaining from M also..........
    but yes........because of porn use .......social anxiety is still there.........a bit of sadness is also there
    but i am much more motivated
    and here are my little benefits
    • deepening of voice........this is also because i also took a voice therapy
    • faster growth of facial hair........but still i am not able to develop full beard and moustache
    • good breath control......
    • less frequent urine.......
    • physical excercises are easy and fun
    • stronger erection......and i got turned on easily...........which is bad and good at the same time
    • a little reduction in social anxiety........
    thats all

    I'm sure those benefits will give you enough motivation to stop P too. PMO addiction is the wors because it is like beating 4 addictions in once. Porn+masturbation+orgasm and probably internet addiction too.

    Great job! Not beating off for a whole year is an incredible accomplishment. I hope to accomplish the same thing. I want to break this bad habit that I've had for years.

    If a guy like me can achieve this

    You just need to analyze your triggers

    I completely agree with you.....
    That's why ......my real reboot is still going on......
    Because I have to kick out porn in order to fix the dopamine rush
    And with this 1year experience I am confident that I will succeed in this too
