PMO-Free Commitment thread for July 2020!

Discussion in 'Events & Challenges' started by Alexander, Jun 30, 2020.

  1. The purpose of this thread is to provide Rebooters with a place to share their commitment to abstaining from particular sexual behaviors throughout the entire month. Although it is strongly recommended to make a public commitment, posting in this thread is not required for participation in a reboot.

    New to reboot? Here are some suggestions:
    1. Learn about porn addiction, excessive masturbation, and abstaining from PMO (a process called "reboot" or "rebooting"). Our free Getting Started guide that is advertised everywhere is a great option.
    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 month. If you have decided that you would like to participate, proceed to step three.
    3. Sign up for this month by replying to this thread.
    4. Consider setting up a PMO-tracking day counter to monitor your progress.
    5. Create a Journal Thread and share your progress periodically, preferably on a daily basis. 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. Help others, too, if you are able to.
    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 dubbed "hard mode". For a full list of parameters, see our Rebooting 101 page.
    • How long do you want this challenge to last? By default it is one month, but 90 days is recommended for rebooting. You can't know how long it will take to "rewire" your brain, it widely varies due to individual circumstances. Some people require a year or longer to regain sexual function.
    • What are your goals?
    • Why are you doing this?
    Coming in after this month has already started?

    Don't panic - it is not a problem. Users sign up for NoFap's rebooting events all months long. Just follow the instructions above and jump in at any time by replying to this thread.

    This is going to be my first full month in a very long time.
    Last full month was 3 years ago where i almost did 90.

    Now whatever your approach is is none of my business, but this is mine.
    Just one fap is prove that you are not strong enough for reality. It is admitting defeat. I dont like the encouragement talk when somebody just relapsed. There is no basis from why anything should change just because of little pat on the back after relapsing. It proves nothing. Empty words.
    The only thing that matters is your streak. You have to be able to distiguish between reality and fantasy again. Playing games, reading books, watching this, watching that is all a waste of time.
    For that formost you can not under any circumstances waste your energy on fake pixel garbage. Also you must not systemize your life and become a mere mechanical part. But be alive, become aware become self confident for who you are in the very moment, find the inner core.

    Only those with long streak deserve encouragement. My 18 days amount to nothing. Still, i might fail with everything else, my streak will never fall again. We are advancing on a tight rope with a tiger on the rope behind you. The only way is forward, falling down or turning back aka relapsing or reseting is death.
    When you can not develop a serious mindset with this you will fail again again and again. When you fail a streak, it becomes completely wortheless, you have learned nothing, you have not become stronger and you standing up again and going the 1001 time might give you the feeling of hope, but it is useless.
    The only thing that matters is not fapping each and every single day. And if you are too weak, if you keep relapsing, than you deserve to slowly perish in your misery, this is what happened to me the last 4 years, no, longer, since i failed my longest streak of 145 days 4 years ago this is what happened or rather what i done for the last 8 years. A representation of lethargy and hypocrasy. A slave of self destructive desire. I remember how good i feeled when i reached a 100 days of nofap, however it amounts to nothing, if you have not learned the actual lesson, and i had not.

    This streak is the stepping stone for a new life, no, for life the first time. Compared to my streak everything else crumbles in insignificance. I feel like i now with this energy must rush to accomplish something. But that is not true. I must not rush anything but diligently advance my streak day by day.

    This is not even the beginning. When i have a few years that might be called a beginning.

    All what i have just said is worthless, incoherent babbling of someone who has not done anything because he has been jerking of for 8 years. This is what it is. Words in your mind are worthless, your whole attitude, your belief, your self awarness are what matters.

    There is no explenation, there is no technqiue you either are capable or not.

    Wer sich nicht selbst befiehlt bleibt immer Knecht. Goethe
    Who does not command himself stays servant. Goethe

    Lets see if my streak can keep up with my self loathing talk. If what i said hurt you, hey i am sorry. Develop some self worth independent of what others say.

    I would like to participate in this challenge!

    1. I will not allow myself to masturbate, view porn and orgasm whatsoever
    2. I will want to try to do this at least 1 month and keep continuing until the 90 day benchmark.
    3. My goal won't be farfetched than what I could imagine to reach, that is to NOT see another video on Porn.
    4. Reason for doing this is to clear my mind towards how I see women/girls not as a sex material but another human being that has raw emotions like us males too
     
  4. Im gonna be part of this challenge, for the whole month, to help kick start my journey. A life with PMO is no life at all.

    I would like to stop masturbating and watching porn

    I want to do this challenge for 90 days (til December)

    I want to do this challenge because I don’t want to keep thinking about sex and porn all the time.
