    It's that time of the year again - hello and welcome to the official signup thread for PMO-Free 2018!

    The purpose of this thread is to provide Fapstronauts with a place to share their commitment to abstaining from particular sexual behaviors throughout the entire YEAR of 2018. Although it is strongly recommended, posting in this thread is not required for participation.

    New to NoFap? Here are some suggestions:
    1. Learn about the website, porn addiction, excessive masturbation, and abstaining from PMO. Read through the forum to get informed.
    2. Decide if abstaining from PMO is something that you really want. If you don't buy into the process 100%, you'll probably not make it through the year. If you have decided that you would like to participate, proceed to step three.
    3. Sign up for this year by replying to this thread.
    4. Consider setting up a day counter to track your progress. Otherwise, there are a variety of phone applications and calendars available for crossing off how many days you've lasted.
    5. Create a Journal Thread and share your progress every day. Not only does this help you stay accountable, it documents valuable anecdotal evidence that will ultimately help other people going through similar situations in the future.
    6. Ask questions and get support by posting on NoFap. Come here every day and participate.
    7. Get an accountability partner.
    Would you like to participate? If so, please reply to this thread with the following information.
    • Are you not going to allow yourself to masturbate? View porn? Orgasm whatsoever? Not allowing any outlet for sexual release is called "hard mode".
    • How long do you want this challenge to last?
    • What are your goals?
    • Why are you doing this?
    Coming in after this year has already started?
    Don't panic - it is not a problem. Fapstronauts sign up for NoFap's events all year/months long. Just follow the instructions above and jump in at any time by replying to this thread.

    Dig down deep, tighten your belt, reaffirm your resolve, always keep the person you want to be before you.

  3. I'm in! Shout out to @Alexander for this community, God bless you!

    My short term goal is to do hard/monk mode for the entire year of 2018.
    Long term goal is to quit PM forever and only O when I want children.

    One of my main reasons for doing this is to rise from mediocrity and become the great man I know I will be. Step one is to stop wasting my energy on PMO.

    Good luck and best wishes to everyone as we embark on this journey of being PMO free for 2018!

    I'm in. Hard mode, for the entire year, to grow my self love, respect and confidence, because I don't want this shit I don't even enjoy anymore in my life, I want to walk with my head up and I want to truly enjoy life.

    • Are you not going to allow yourself to masturbate? View porn? Orgasm whatsoever? Not allowing any outlet for sexual release is called "hard mode". NO PMO until I am in a steady relationship, then no PM
    • How long do you want this challenge to last? The year of 2018
    • What are your goals? My goal is to have my first 90 day streak within the first three months, Jan, Feb, March. This will set the tone of the new year.
    • Why are you doing this? I want to reach my fullest potential in life and be free of all urges and compulsion. I was able to defeat a very strong caffeine addiction 6 months ago, and now this is the next habit that must be broken.

    I want to take command of my life and not let PMO govern my decisions. For this new year I want to go full mental reboot with 90 days hard mode. Been trying from past 3 years but have only seen 37 days at a stretch. Hope to start afresh this new year and successfully reach 90 days hard mode.

    1) No PMO-hard mode for 2018.
    2) I’m hoping that this will help me recover from my addiction to PMO and find good real life relationships.
    3) I want to change my life.

    Count me in for 2018, and every year beyond. Starting to enter super man mode after my reboot, and nothing will stop me from living a life free from P!
    I have my empathy back along with plenty of thoughtfulness and mindfulness to help the rest of us in need on NoFap.
    I didn’t believe I could even do a week. I didn’t believe I could go without M. I didn’t think my relationship would last through disclosure.
    Boy was I delusional. Stop the P, stop Fapping, and start being honest and living life. Looking so forward to 2018 to enhance my recovery and healing my relationship from years of damage.
    Who’s with me?

    I'm in.
    Started the year with 60+ days under my belt
    Going to avoid porn and masturbation.
    Doing anything that involves real women is allowed as I have very little experience.
    Let's kill 2018 one day at a time.

    I am in.

    Happy 2018!!!

    I feel like a ticking time bomb where at an unpredictable time the bomb will explode.

    Each day I risk the destruction of my family and career. One person may walk in on me watching porn on my phone with my hand in my pants and "poof" my life has drastically altered for the worse.

    1) No porn.
    2) No masturbation.
    3) If my wife is not in the mood or on her period - this is not an excuse to act out.
    4) No hiding in the bathroom and neglecting my children who simply want to play with their Daddy.
    5) No more angry outbursts and being standoffish after a porn binge.
    6) Keep hydrated, exercise and try to eat healthier.
    7) More date nights than work nights.
    8) Feel a warm body when making love. A real person who I can please emotionally and sexually and will love me back.
    9) No more trying to stare at other women's cleavage.
    10) Share my feelings with those whom I care about.

  18. My goals:

    - No PMO of course
    - Apply for jobs so I can move away from where I live now, and get close to my family.
    - Spend more time with said family. PMO made me cranky and not fun to spend time with. Now I am out of the fog and want to spend more time with them.
    - Read, read, read alot of books. I am getting the hang for books again. I have read through the years, but I haven't felt this way since my teens, and that is 20 years ago.
    - Exercise more than I have, get into a routine.
    - Drink way less alcohol. During last year I would get into this routine where every Friday when I got of work I would buy a bottle of wine that I drunk through the whole weekend. Other times I would get beer. And yes this I would drink alone. Also don't want to get drunk anymore!
    - Play less videogames, and watch less stuff. In moderation is the key and I am continuing my work on that.
    - Start really play on my bass again, and I want to start to sing again.
    - Play more board games with people and being social that way.
    - And when I have more financial security I want to travel more. See more of the world, expand my horizons.

    Why? Because I want to get to know the best version of myself that I am seeing coming through the seams. I can glimpse him, I can see him coming out of his shell. I like this person. And I want this person to be happy. I want to be happy and live a full life. I don't want to be dredged down by PMO anymore. I don't want to be alone anymore. I don't want to be that anxious anymore. I want my life back dammit! So yes this is what I am going to do, and I am hella motivated! I already started on the first, second and fourth of the goals. I know I can do this and I know I deserve this!
