I'd like to suggest a definition change (extension) for hard mode per the glossary on this site. I am curious about how others feel? Specifically, I believe hard mode should prohibit intentionally looking at porn substitutes and either edging or masturbating. The idea originated for me in this thread and may have been brought up previously. Thanks for the suggestion @IGY ! http://www.nofap.com/forum/index.ph...nd-their-imagination.51392/page-2#post-367385 My reasoning is as follows: The goal as I see it is to promote more successful reboots generally. Almost every day I have logged onto the site, and have seen relapses that specifically involved viewing porn substitutes and/or edging while trying to give up porn indefinitely. There are even cases I have seen where men engaged in 'hardmode' for more than 20 days and relapsed. Only later do I find out that they had been edging and Ming for a week or two and finally gave in. I think the risks of p-subs and edging/M should be included in the glossary and should be defined as a part of hard mode. There are others who initially don't understand that it may very well be the edging that is making them so horny. It is more than just a chaser effect. Hard mode 'should' be reasonably strict or else why call it hard mode? P-subs are a dangerous gateway to PMO and are easy enough to prohibit and even easier to define with the concept of intentionality (I first read this from @tiberiansun 's journal). Many people end up reading the glossary almost by accident when they don't know what one of the abbreviations means. For some that may be their main exposure to the terminology. From reading the main reboot logic, there are multiple challenge modes including Monk Mode. I have come across Monk Mode in the forums a few times, but not many people mention it though some try it without knowing (indicating that they didn't read the main porn addiction basics, tldr type thing). I understand that making a reboot too strict doesn't work for some, but hard mode should live up to its name in my opinion. Thoughts?
