    I've completed 120 days of abstaining from sex and PMO today.
    37 yo - 17 years of internet porn and compulsive-bingle masturbation addiction.

    Here are my observations:

    Positives:
    1. Brain fog / numbness -> almost non existent
    2. social anxiety -> improved (socializing a lot, flirting, dating again),
    3. depression -> improved (some sadness persist, but things got a lot better)
    4. self-esteem -> improved
    5. becoming physically fitter
    6. self-discipline -> improved
    7. fatigue -> start seeing some improvement
    8. mood swings -> more modest ( states of being almost euphoric one moment and depressed or/and anxious only few hours later are mostly gone),
    9. morning woods -> very strong and almost every morning

    Neutrals/negatives:
    1. More worried about life problems and future prospects sometimes
    2. PIED -> still not cured. Not getting aroused around women yet. I'd probably get a rock solid boner with a little help.

    Summary:
    As you can see, things are improving even past 90 days of no sex/no PMO mark.

    Is it worth it? Yes.
    Is it hard? It was hellish in first 2 months, but it's getting easier and easier now... Withdrawal symptoms are mostly gone and I don't get any cravings for porn or mb anymore.
    Will I continue to abstain? yes -> from porn, yes -> from masturbation, maybe -> from sex

    If you have any questions regarding topic don't hesitate to ask.

    Any physical pains at all? My prostate plays up around the 30 day mark. Feels like prostatitis could start if i dont relieve myself
     
  3. It’s the same situation with me in fact how you have wrote that out I am very similar. This will not be cured from a 90 day reboot for people like us.

    I had terrible headaches first month, other than that, no. Maybe you should try exercising on daily basis. I got very painful testicles in my two previous 90 days streaks, but not this time around. The only difference I could think of is daily vigorous exercise routine during latest reboot. I had to pee very frequently for some reason. It was kind of annoying always looking for a public toilets. I don't have this problem anymore.

    Very true. The important thing is, we're making progress. Have you also had PIED... If so, is it getting better?

    Im 37 and watched porn daily for about 10 years. Day 38 today and i am seeing some improvement. Penis is slowly getting its size back and i get occasional morning wood, not rock solid but its something. A week ago it was like i didnt even feel a thing down there.

    This is my second reboot. I did the 90 Day reboot 6 months ago and thought i was cured but I wasnt 100%. I would say i was 60% cured, I would get hard but I was constantly worried if i would get hard or not. I had PE and DA and reverted back to porn for a good 3 months which brought back the PIED and a flaccid penis.

    This time my goal is to go forever without porn and not masturbate till at least 2019.

    I have some morning wood but that’s it. I anticipate needing a lengthy reboot maybe 6-8 months.
