    So I am officially resetting my counter from November 28, 2016, to May 30, 2017.
    I am doing this because I have seen no progress, in fact I seem to be stuck in withdrawal, and I think it is due to the fact that I have been given handjobs from my girlfriend.
    I believe the problem lies deeper than just porn, but an addiction to orgasm and the dopamine hit from that.
    I want your opinions, do you think I'll start to see progress now that I am beginning hard mode?

    Side Note: Resetting from 160 days to 7 days, seeing therapist this week for terrible (what I think is) withdrawals.

    If your original definition wasn't inclusive of what your girlfriend did, then consider your old counter still a success. You accomplished your goal. Add this onto it and go from here.

    I guess if you are really a purist, you can start a new counter, but I still think you should be proud of what you have accomplished, even if you didn't get what you expected.

    As joyous as handjobs and sex related things are great, if you abstain from them until you're done with your reboot. It's not so much a dopamine thing, but just a rewiring.

    Also the story that matches my situation the most took a guy over 300 days to reboot. Maybe you just need more time?
