    Hey all!! Today is day 0 Hard Mode for me.
    I've been away from this forum for a bit, but I'm back now. I'm hoping we have a lively and supportive thread this month as everyone realizes their potential!

    I am not going to masturbate or watch porn for the month of May, and am going full Hard Mode. I am pursuing the seven day challenge and likely will do the 14 day challenge thereafter, but my goal is a 90-day reboot, which would include those challenges and this one for the month of May. My goal is to give up pornography forever, and I am doing it because I have gotten sick of the shame, wasted time, isolation, goals not met, values violations, and excessive focus on sex that have ruled my life.

    Already on an 8-day strike, but I wanna break my own record (27 or 28 days, it was sooo long ago that I don't even remember lol) so I'm joining this one too.

    This is my first attempt after years of masturbating to nsfl porn, multiple times a day for years. This is also my first post on here. I have completely lost interest in opposite sex and have become lethargic in life in general. I'm doing this to get my life together, to build confidence and willpower, and to rekindle my libido. I'll need all the help i can get. At this point i've gone a full 24+ hours without PMO. About to read getting started!

    New to this site. Been two days without porn, and 6 days without masturbation. I am a 34 year old husband with two kids (third on the way) and I want to stop to gain more self-respect, to be a better husband and father, and to have greater intimacy and honesty in my relationship. I can do this-we can do this!

    Hey bro! Welcome to the site. I am in a similar situation (married, 2 young kids, and third on the way believe it or not), so we are all in this together. Feel free to message me if you are having any questions about what you are doing on the site (I am still learning myself, but have found a few things helpful to me). I will be pulling and praying for you!

    Day 2 is in the books. Let's keep it up everyone!

    I realized the other day that I can only handle one big thing in my life at a time. Right now, I have three, which explains why I recently haven't been doing as well as I expected. They are M, School, Work, and Spirituality. I can handle having a bunch of small tasks lined up, but if they feel to me like they are a big deal, then I have to put a lot of focus and energy on that one thing. If there is more than one big thing I lose focus, drop the ball, and can't prioritize or schedule them.
    M has been a big deal for a long time. This whole realization of 1 big thing really helps to explain to me why I don't always do what I expect. I M when I am not really feeling what I need to feel, thinking what I need to think, or doing what I need to do. M seems like a good idea because I use it for any situation, but it doesn't actually deal with anything. It really just helps me forget and move on. A powerful function. But, I do it out of a place of unhealth, and it only enables that unhealth. In order to be truly healthy, I need to listen to my body and feelings, let them teach me, and then direct myself according to wisdom, not on a whim.

    Mind your mind, & mind your hands

  18. Hello my friends, I'm Camilo and currently i have 18 days without PMO. I am 20 years old, and I am single. I want to joint in this challenge, because i think this is the better way to improve my self esteem, because for me living without PMO is the answer to find the happiness that i want to have in my life.

    Best,

    Wrapping up day 2. I went to a news website and saw a link on it to ‘bad girls’, i clicked on it. That’s really shameful for me to say, butni clicked on it not once, but twice. It required sign in, which i ‘x’d out of. But i knew that i would need to confess that to you guys. Well, atlwast i didn’t PMo. I thank God for giving me some strength.

    I started on may 1st so this should be a good challenge for me. I haven't made it past a week in a while but I feel this time is different. I have a diffrrdif mindset and approach now and believe I can make it through the month. Let's do this!
