PMO-Free Monthly Thread: Abstain August 2018

Discussion in 'Events & Challenges' started by Alexander, Aug 2, 2018.

  1. Hello and welcome to the official signup thread for PMO-Free August 2018!

    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 cannot control my obsessive addiction to pornography, masturbation, paid sexual encounters. Once I start I am in its grip. Many wasted hours and wasted money that I can ill afford. Have come so so close on occasions to being discovered. Have so much to lose. Have people who love and respect me. I would feel so diminished if my sad secret became known. After each failure to resist my self esteem takes another hit. 5 days into this now. This is my first real test. Alone in the house. The siren voices are calling out to me. Let me get through this day unscathed. Let me get through this week and then this month please!!!

    I'm in. No porn or masturbation for me, but I won't pass up the real thing if it presents itself.
    I'll go for the month first and try to keep going to 90 days after I hit that milestone.

    I’m in. Doing PMO and going for at least 30 days. If I can achieve that I’ll continue to 90. I’m excited to finally take action in removing porn from my life.
