    I’m in from 8 august. I will do because if you want to win in your life, firstly you need to get victory over your brain and take over the control. Temperance will lead you success not indulgence. If you want to win just not compete with your brain. Because it is stronger than you, this competition can be unfair. That’s why don’t judge yourself for losing control at this moment, take precaution for that hard time. Don’t forget :) “every victory will enforce you willpower”

    Hard mode for 30 days! I'm abstaining from PMO.

    I've gone 10 days so far and now I have confidence that I can do it. Some really tough days when I thought I would explode, and I'm still pretty damn horny, but it's died down in the last three days and it's a lot more manageable. Hoping to flatline soon.

    OK, so why did I do it? Basically the same reasons as everybody else. I was wasting a lot of time on it, spending about an hour every day masturbating to porn and feeling fatigued. If I skipped a day, my energy would come back, but then the next day I would just cum twice and be back where I started. And that's only because I'm older, it's gradually decreased from four times a day. And I'd spend much of the rest of the day wasting time on sex, and sometimes I'd binge on porn for several days.

    I was also having problem with girlfriends (I'm unattached now) who hated porn and told me not to masturbate. I wanted to do as they asked, but I'd break down and cheat and they'd get pissed. And it affected my sex with them.

    Another thing is that I was getting into weird stuff, most recently transsexuals. I don't mind that, I'd have no problem having sex or a relationship with someone who's trans and maybe I will someday. But some of the stuff I got into really threatened to be harmful to me and it was distracting me from normal relationships with human beings.

    Actually, when I came here I was really skeptical. I'd known about this for several years but thought it was quirky and never even thought of trying it because I thought porn was harmless and liked to fap. But then I talked to a lot of guys online who were desperate and I started to see that I wasn't alone in wanting to spend less time on it. So I thought at first I'd just try three days. But I'm realizing that most of what's said here is real. My goal was to cut my porn use to two or three times a week, but now I'm realizing that I'm going to have to cut it out entirely, it just isn't natural and it overstimulates us. My hope is that after my reboot and without porn, I'll be able to masturbate less frequently (I don't want to turn into a monk) and have more motivation to be in a relationship again. I know I can refrain entirely for a longer time, now, I don't have the urge to look at porn because it will just make me miserable, but I'm afraid I won't be able to resist once I'm jerking off again. So I guess that will be the next challenge.

    PS -- not sure what I'm doing wrong, but the little flag doesn't mention orgasm, even though I'm doing PMO. Not that I could have an orgasm otherwise, LOL.

    I can't stand it and I watched porn. When I'm alone in my room, I have ideas about porn and sex. but then I'm sad and furious with me, because I can't be tough and I can't watch porn. I start again. Thank you

    It's really, really hard at first, but once you've gone a while it gets easier. From what I've read the timing varies from person to person but it seems a lot of people flatline at 2-4 weeks and their desire goes away. In fact I just came across a sexy picture by accident -- not porn, but a bathing suit picture that would normally turn me on -- and I was amazed because I didn't get hard or excited!
