    Hey all,

    Today's Day 1 for my first attempt at a reboot with NoFap and I intend to make this is as participatory an experience as possible to make the most out of this online community. Here is the who, what, where, when, and why for beginning.

    Who: Me, and anyone else who wants to join. Open to any methods people have for mutual accountability, even if that's just conversation.

    What: The Standard Mode reboot, i.e., abstaining from porn (P) and masturbation (M) for a goal of 90 days. Keeping the option open for sex & orgasm with actual people.

    Where: This may not be applicable. I suppose I'm at Everest Base Camp, but is anyone actually posing those challenges/markers? Let me know if so. It sounds fun.

    When: I'm starting today and will do my best to share updates every 5 days, give or take a day. Next will be Aug. 31, Sep. 5, Sep. 10, etc. If I can get through it (and if my math's right), I'll reach 90 days on November 21st.

    Why: Well, this could be a book for many of us, couldn't it. Long story short, I believe I developed an addiction to porn as a young teenager in order to escape a tense household. Over the years it became a coping mechanism with the emotional challenges and stressors of life, not to mention a serious time-consumer and really bad outlet for procrastination. Recently I've realized how woefully inept and numb I am in relationships (both when it comes to regulating my own feelings and communicating desires) and that my sexuality is an open book. (I should mention that I don't really intend to get into these things in great depth through this journal; therapy is the proper setting for that. Though who knows. We'll see.) I see a reboot as an essential step for getting my life in order and becoming capable of leading a healthy relationship with someone.

    Cheers and good luck,
    BB
