    Hi, I'm new to Nofap, and I started the challenge half as a bet and half just to see if I could actually do it. I'm a week into it without M or O, but when I signed up for the site, I noticed the slider didn't have an option without P, and I just looked at some porn today (but didn't stroke it) so I was wondering if I could still apply as PMO or if the porn automatically makes me reset the counter, and why there isn't an option without P. thanks.
     
  2. P is the main issue. If you look at P without M or O that's really just a form of edging, and it does a lot of harm. Besides, you could end up having an O without any M because of it (it's happened to me). Or you could get bad blue balls (but these will go away pretty soon, it's not an excuse to MO).

    Each viewing of P creates more craving for the next one, very much like the addiction to smoking cigarettes.

    I know from experience that a 30-day streak with no P at all is much better than a 60-day streak with occasional "peeking" i.e. edging.

    Ok. Point taken. I’m gonna keep my eight day counter but I won’t look at any more porn. Thanks for replying!

  4. From my past streaks I've just set it to custom and occasionally peaked, hopefully this time I can go 30 days without peaking at all like you mentioned. Edging always seem to make my guilty meter spike too.

  5. I've had thoughts about betting friends about abstaining but I always end up shying away from an actual bet. I'd almost want to bet $100 or something extreme like shaving my head lol. I used to go by the same tactic of peaking but I'm changing it up this time.

    Yeah, I’ll admit the challenge seems kind of easy if I can just watch some ass for a few minutes. It seems like I don’t get blue balls like a lot of guys and it just kind of satisfies me if I’m just looking.
     
  7. It might satisfy you in the short-term but it keeps you stuck in the habit, and it causes dopamine imbalances and all that bad stuff.
