Challenge Thread: Masturbation-Free March 2016 (PMO-Free)

Discussion in 'Rebooting - Porn Addiction Recovery' started by Alexander, Feb 26, 2016.

  1. Sign up for the monthly challenge in this thread!

    It's that time of the month again - hello and welcome to the official signup thread for NoFap's PMO-Free March 2016!

    The purpose of this thread is to provide Fapstronauts with a place to share their commitment to abstaining from particular sexual behaviors throughout the entire month of March 2016. Although it is strongly recommended, posting in this thread is not required for participation.
    New to NoFap? Here are some suggestions:
    1. Learn about the website, porn addiction, excessive masturbation, and abstaining from PMO. Read through the forum to get informed.
    2. Decide if abstaining from PMO is something that you really want. If you don't buy into the process 100%, you'll probably not make it through the month. If you have decided that you would like to participate, proceed to step three.
    3. Sign up for this month by replying to this thread.
    4. Consider setting up a day counter to track your progress. Otherwise, there are a variety of phone applications and calendars available for crossing off how many days you've lasted.
    5. Create a Journal Thread and share your progress every day. Not only does this help you stay accountable, it documents valuable anecdotal evidence that will ultimately help other people going through similar situations in the future.
    6. Ask questions and get support by posting on NoFap. Come here every day and participate.
    7. Get an accountability partner.
    Would you like to participate? If so, please reply to this thread with the following information.
    • Are you not going to allow yourself to masturbate? View porn? Orgasm whatsoever? Not allowing any outlet for sexual release is called "hard mode".
    • How long do you want this challenge to last? By default it is one month, but 90 days is recommended for rebooting.
    • What are your goals?
    • Why are you doing this?
    Coming in after this month has already started?
    Don't panic - it is not a problem. Fapstronauts sign up for NoFap's events all months long. Just follow the instructions above and jump in at any time by replying to this thread.

    I wish you all nothing but the best. Onwards to a PMO-free March 2016! Kick off the new year right!

    I would like to take part in this challenge if I may?

    I decided to join as I have been using my vibrator almost exclusively for over 5 years since I got divorced.

    In the first year, I was going out and dating. But I got busier and I got a really great vibrator. I found it much easier and less time- consuming to quickly get off than to put up with people.

    There is always something I find with people that you have to put up with and because I have already been married and lived with someone, I found I had no patience for other people's habits and the travel or entertaining involved.

    I guess you could say I got a bit selfish. My vibrator has been great but I have noticed now I can no longer climax with my hand and it takes me much longer with my vibrator, it has to be on the highest setting and I have to have porn and lots of it.

    For the past year I realise I am addicted to porn. It is more a compulsion to watch it and to cum now. No build up, just my vibrator on the hardest setting until I cum. The type of stuff I view is becoming even more illicit.

    I keep clearing my bookmarks and going to throw my vibrator out but like this morning, I thought ok just one more orgasm and then I will throw it out. I do intend to throw it out today though.

    I need the support to do it. I have shared this with my best friend but she has quite a judgy tone about it so I am looking for online support.

    After clearing my bookmarks out, I find I gradually start adding more porn in. I have 10 at the moment, which I plan to get rid of now.

    MY CHALLENGE to myself is not to view porn of any kind and to throw away my vibrator today and not use any sex toys throughout March and I hope forever.

    Sorry for the long post.

    Y'all, this is tough, and it hasn't even started yet! I'm in the final stages of writing my dissertation, so I've been pulling many late nights/all-nighters lately, and the temptation to PMO is high. I'm at peak stress level, tired, and I haven't had the opportunity to sleep with my wife for over a month. So yeah, I'm on edge. And then I think about it would actually mean to PMO right now: 1) probably 15 minutes wasted right out of the gate, followed by more (and longer) sessions after that (because Lord knows it's a slippery slope...) 2) probably fall asleep immediately. I'm exhausted right now. Seriously. I get off once, and I'm probably going to just slouch over and die. 3) I'm married, and it's not something I should do anyway. But the temptation is always there.

    Anyway, I just wanted to post this because I'm struggling, but I've got to stay on the wagon--both for practical and personal reasons. Y'all be good out there, and if anyone needs some help, feel free to reply here or message.

    I am not going to allow myself to masturbate, or view porn. I will, however, orgasm if in the presence of another person ie during sex
    My goal is already 90 days, this challenge will only give me further incentive.
    My goals are to change my sexual habits, and discipline myself further in order to work toward a better lifestyle so I
    can accomplish my dreams.
