    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.

    • I will go hard mode for this month.
    • I plan to be PMO free for 90 days.
    • My goal is to overcome the urges to look at porn or the real desire to look at porn.
    • I am doing this as porn has held me back in so much of my life.

  6. I never want to engage in PMO again. I made a contract with myself and there's no going back on it. I don't want to indulge fantasy, and I don't want to strengthen escapist pathways in my brain. I would rather feel discomfort than feel false comfort. I want to be more motivated, so I'm resetting my reward circuits and trying to fight hypofrontality. I also want to have more empathy for women, so I'm cutting out porn and surrounding enticing images. For me, porn and masturbation are bad for the brain, and I won't quit unless I feel I have to. Well, I have to. It's necessary.

    November, do your worst. This discomfort is mine and it is beautiful. I will remain lucid.

    • I am standing Feb 1, 2020 PMO free and empowered to abstain from sexual self pleasure forever
    • To live a full life NOW is what I'm committed to; not wasting time and energy on artificial stimulation and false fantasies.
    • I am doing this in faith, hope and anticipation of all that God has in store for me; to fulfill and be fulfilled by the man he has set out for me to marry and be one with in 2020.
    • HABIT: Phone stays in separate room at night and in my purse at work unless I'm communicating with someone. I will leave my phone at home one day each week.
    • HOBBY: Scrapbook a 2 page spread each week to remind myself of all I do have

    I'm in!
    - No PM for 90 days

    I've battled this porn addiction monster for many, many years and in my journey I've won a few battles and lost a few, but most importantly, I've built up quite an arsenal/resistance along the way and haven't given up fighting. I believe I'm finally ready to kill this monster dead. Lets dance motherfucker.
