    Well, today is Day 88 of my original 90-day NoFap challenge in Hard Mode, and I have no doubt whatsoever that I'll make 90. For about a month, I've been thinking about what I should do afterward, and I decided to continue my streak for a while and see where it leads. I've now settled on some specific new goals related to my special case as described below.

    When I decided to stop masturbation 88 days ago, it had already been 39 days since my last orgasm. (I'd been doing non-orgasmic masturbation, also known as edging.) Up until that time, I usually viewed only still photos of nudity and only occasionally anything heavier, and I almost never viewed any porn while masturbating. At the time, I didn't see any need to quit viewing nude stills, because I knew that I could view them without masturbating. So, my initial rules for my 90 days were no-MO (in Hard Mode) and only nude stills. That worked for me, however, I eventually learned from these forums that any kind of porn provides a hit of dopamine, which needs to be eliminated for proper rewiring of the mind. So, after 53 days of my original 90-day no-MO challenge, I also quit viewing nude photos and became fully PMO-free. If I'd done that from the beginning, I'd be almost done now. :(

    So, I'm now extending my goal to remain fully PMO-free in Hard Mode through September 15th. Assuming that I make it, that will complete 90 days without P, 142 days without M, and 182 days without O. Yeah, I know, I'm doing it my own unique way! :D

    Nice man. No doubt, by then you will have completely come back to your healthy, natural senses. Keep up the good work!

    Being a little relaxed goes a long way but being too relaxed will lead to relapse. Edging and looking at pictures for me will eventually lead to relapse.
