    Hi Everyone,

    I have just reached 130 day and I am ready for the next challenge. It took three tries to beat the 90 challenge and by 90 days things have really started to change. I find my wife more attractive and feel much more at peace with myself. It has also helped me to start working on some of the underlying anxiety issues which my porn and masturbation addiction were covering up. As a married man I am doing PM mode and it has been working well for me but depending on your circumstances it's up to you PM or PMO mode. I suggest that people join on who have already passed 90 days because I think that's a much better early target (365 days would have been unimaginable to me earlier). I suggest starting from where you are currently instead of resetting to 0.

    Well here we go, 130 days - just 235 days to go.

    Good luck and thank you to all who have supported and built this site.

    It's been awhile since I have had a pull for PM but I have today. Work stress has been high and I've had to work a few weeks on weekends. I really need those breaks. I'll try to take it easy today. I want to continue going forward. I really enjoy the peace of not having the manic desire to watch pornography that I had before. 149 days - have to be happy about that and keep it going. For the one year challenge I'm close to the half way point.

    Still going well - 171 days. Once I passed the three month mark I was able to start facing and getting help for my anxiety problems (OCD and PTSD) which the porn was a mask for. It's going well. The thought of masturbating occurs to me occasionally but its not really a pull.

    Quitting porn and masturbation has been key in recognizing and working on my mental health issues. Also my relationship with my wife has much improved. We don't have sex very often but when we do it is amazing. I find her more beautiful and we spend more time together.

    Still going! Now there are long gaps where PM doesn't even occur to me. Right now I have been at home sick for awhile and it has been popping into my head since yesterday which is why I am here posting. The almost constant feverish, never satisfied desire, alternating with disappointment and guilt is not a place I want to go back to. I'm glad there is this community here.
