So like all of you, I am officially starting the Rebooting Challenge (Hard Mode) to regain control of my life. In the past, I did not consider myself an addict since on week-long trips with other people, I would not feel the need to PMO. However, being the introverted guy that I already am, PMO chains to me further to my socially reclusive lifestyle. But breaking off the chains off this 10 year old habit will be tough, and that’s why I am here. I recently began online dating and found a beautiful, sweet, and smart woman who is reciprocating interest in me. This was the final straw that led me to begin rebooting since I think I have PIED. So at present, I’m setting the goal of a 90 day Rebooting challenge (I’ve successfully completed a 7-day challenge last week). We are planning to meet for the first time over Christmas/New Year in Hokkaido for vacation. Who knows, maybe we can celebrate the New Year with something memorable *wink*. Even if nothing happens during the vacation, I can still take pride in the fact that I’ve regained control of my life and not let PMO take control of me. Wish me luck and I would love to share this journey with this community.
