Is it cheating the reboot to M without P?

    I'm trying to reboot, but am only on the 3rd day and I am struggling. Like I am not getting tasks done because I need to M really bad and am using most of my energy just fighting it.

    It will get better. Continue to read and post on here to get support. I do think that M without P is still breaking sobriety. The logic is that the purpose of a reboot is to allow the brain to re-set. The addiction is that of feeding the dopamine release and the euphoric high that is created. Personally if you are doing any sort of sexual activity during a reboot you are short circuiting that process. It will get easier and you will have moments of weakness.

    Start filling your days and times with "good things", such as work, seeing friends, going out for coffee and reading a book. Get yourself out of situations that are triggering or give you the ability to perform sexual acts. There is a thread on here that I really like which changes the concept of a reboot slightly. Its presented as a challenge of seeing how productive you can be during that 90 day period. Focusing on be productive in whatever form that is helps with not just sitting on your hands and "white knuckling it".
