    Hello and welcome to the official signup thread for Orgasm-less October 2018!

    A little late this month but still a good time to leave a commitment and announce your current rebooting / retention progress.

    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.

    • What are your goals?

      To view life in a different perspective.

    • Why are you doing this?

      Because pmo is an addiction that is pretty common i think these days since smartphones and online porn released, i want to get rid of this addiction and become a better version of myself

    I'm in.
    I'm already in a 90 challenge, but the goal is to leave it forever. Going hard mode.
    I'm doing this for myself, to improve my self steem, my confidence, my energy levels and overall my relationship with God.

  4. In. Joined nofap forum for nth number of time now. This time for a sober October.

    Yes, I'm going hardmode.
    I want this challenge to last for about 6 months and stay away from P for ever.
    My goal is to invest my time in academics and office work as much as possible
    I am doing this because getting a high out of P has become a normal thing for my brain. It seems the only way for me to feel alive or something. This thing has become very powerful and is pretty much controlling my life. I want to keep away and regain my awareness and focus on building my life and career for the next 5 years. Looking forward to successfully completing this journey!!!

    I'm in, already 58 days hard mode so far. I have nothing to lose. If it doesn't work, I can just relapse...
     
  6. I'm joining this challenge. Already have the momentum to move forward. To achieve my long term goal to be porn free, these short, achievable goals are a good way to keep me in check. So let's be PMO free this month!!

    I'm in, ever since I joined Nofap my PMO habit has gone from doing PMO almost everyday and twice or thrice somedays to PMoing or relapsing averagely 6 days.
    I have seen amazing improvement in my life, my last streak was 13 days so I gave myself 30 days. I'm about a week into my new challenge.

    Anytime things start getting perfect I relapse out of nowhere. So this morning I was worried about my progress because I feared progress only means relapsing.
    So I am hoping nofap October will guide me to lengthen my nofap streak and improve myself control as I have decided to end this addiction forever in my life as I'm struggling to make my health status better and regain my mental sharpness.
    Let go!

  10. October will be my month, if I complete it I'll have broken my previous record streak and be very close to the 90 days.

    This will be a great month!

      Hard mode indeed. No PMO.

      Reduce the lust and the, always be vigilant

    • Why are you doing this?
