    My reboot is currently at 13 weeks almost 14 weeks. I masturbated a few times here and there maybe maximum 15 times the past 90 days. I didnt ejaculate or orgasm and with no porn. I am going on 'medium' mode nofap but i started more hardcore a week and 4 days ago and today i jerked off for a minute. Is my reboot legit? Im being honest the beginning of the reboot i edged for a week then it stopped. So is it legit? It didnt involve porn.

    It is legitimate within the boundaries you set for yourself. However, your progress will have affected. :oops: Edging, even without porn produces more dopamine that any other activity. So, you could write off the first week for a start, sadly. :(

    there is a big difference between "edging" and just jerking for a minute. In edging you get yourself as close to O as possible without actually doing it. But if you get hard and you start jerking for a minute but stop before you get anywhere close to O, that isn't edging. In my opinion, although it would be ideal to not do either, just jerking off for a minute before stopping yourself is something that will naturally happen as you are trying to quit a bad habit, but as long as you don't take it too far you are ok. But like SnL said, it depends on the boundaries you set for yourself. It's a personal choice.

    Ill keep that week because before this 13 week reboot started i had a 3 week reboot and it ended because of a wet dream (i didnt know) and then edged for a week for the start. So i was suppose to have 16 weeks but ill keep at 13

    A number is just what it is, a number.

    How about you start a new, define what is that you mean by reboot, for use is No Porn, and then take it from there.

    A strategy could be to start Easy Mode: no Porn, but Masturbation is OK for 1 week. At the end, call it a success and plan your next strategy.

    Your end game is the same as everyone else: to be healed and porn free.

    The point is that it doesn't matter whether it's legit or not.

    Stress not, start over this time by determine WHAT type of reboot you're going to have.
