    Long story short is that I've been at this for about six months now. My longest streak was 10 days, and ever since then I've been relapsing every 3-5 days since. It's time for it to stop. I've let stress and concern about my future become an excuse to relapse whenever I want and I'm tired of it.

    So, I'm starting off at a month. After this month, I'll start adding months in order to reach my initial goal of 90 days. I'm looking for people who are similarly minded, and interested in creating a thread for support for people going through August. We share updates, hop on when urges hit, support others, etc.

    Not really expecting this to get a ton of attention, but if you're interested, feel free to let me know. Today's the first, and I'm a day in and intend to keep it going.

    I want in! Taking it one month at a time will help me survive the 90 days. No intentional P or P-like things, no M, and no O! We can do this!

    Edit: ... Okay maybe a few P-like, substitute things. Call me crazy, but if I can't see someone attractive without learning to control myself, I am going to live a very dangerous life. "tantalize, then avert your eyes".

    I want in! I've tried giving up porn so many times and my max has been 5 days. Every time i've masturbated, I've felt so drained and low. I need to stop this. Glad to have found this thread. Month starts today and so does my reboot! All up for the challenge. [​IMG]

    @writer239 So far so good for me. Had an urge earlier but I beat it. Gonna take a shower (showers don't make me wanna MO) and hand wash some clothes.
    Improving hygiene and distracting myself from MO is quite efficient, I must say.

    Feeling pretty good today. Day one done.

    Hmmm...that's actually a good idea! I've been working out when I get urges but I've slacked off the last few days due to being really sore.

    @UseItOrLoseIt , @Real_OGH , and @FreedomIsHere Welcome guys! Glad to have you aboard! Sorry I haven't been around. Things are a little hectic, but I'll be popping on daily to check in and update.

    Day 1 done here. No urges, but I know that'll change by the end of the week. Just trying to keep busy and move forward.

    How's everyone else doing?

    I'm definitely down for this. Last time I masturbated was exactly a week ago.

    So, I thought I'd share my goals for August, and hopefully others will follow suit with setting, and publishing theirs!

    • Extending My Current Streak:
      • Reach 45 consecutive days without PM, which will happen on August 9th.
      • Reach 60 consecutive days without PM, which will happen on August 24th.
    • Success Rate:
      • Success Rate of 97% (3% is one day)
    • Racking Up Shorter Streaks:
      • The August number for each is based on the maximum number of times, in the month, that each length of streak could be achieved, with a 1-day relapse between each streak.
      • Reach 2 streaks of 30 consecutive days without PM. I started August on Day 36, so already have the first one on the books! Once in August.
      • Reach 3 streaks of 20 consecutive days without PM. In just over two days, two on the books, so once in August.
      • Reach 4 streaks of 15 consecutive days without PM. Two on the books, so twice in August.
      • Reach 5 streaks of 10 consecutive days without PM. Three on the books, so twice in August.
      • Reach 9 streaks of 7 consecutive days without PM. Five on the books, so 4 times in August.
      • Reach 12 streaks of 5 consecutive days without PM. Seven on the books, so 5 times in August.
    • Second Calendar Month without PM (July was the first!)
    • Second ever Calendar Month without PM (July was the first!)
    • 100% Success Rate
    • Reach 67 consecutive days without PM, which will happen on August 31st.
