"Scare Away PMO October" 2017. Keep on rebooting. Official PMO-free accountability thread.

Discussion in 'Rebooting - Porn Addiction Recovery' started by Alexander, Sep 28, 2017.

  1. Another month, September of 2017, has nearly gone by.

    Hello and welcome to the official signup thread for Scare Away PMO October 2017!


    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 of October 2017. 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.

    It's scary to think that I have spent most of my life addicted to PMO. No more! My commitment to rebooting and recovering continues until I can open the door to a new and improved life PMO free.

    I am signing up too. No PMO.
    My plan for October:
    1. 100% commitment to my studies.
    2. Smiling more and more. Even without reasons.
    3. Meditation. - Atleast 10 minutes daily.
    4. Pranayama - Atleast 10 minutes daily. This includes Tribandha Pranayama for 10 times.
    5. No touching. If I touch myself without reason, will be punching myself in the thighs till they get numb.
    6. Smartphone use - Extremely limited. Keep it locked for most of the times. No image/video surfing on it except spiritual and devotional. If I break these rules, smartphone gets locked for next 24 hours.
    No short-cuts. No rationalization. 100% commitment for a better life.
    Cheers !!!

    Going hard mode this time, tired of relapsing after a two day streak. Going 90 days will be a great achievement

    It's only just hit me that I've made it through September without P or M. I'm aiming for 140 days, 20 weeks, which for me lies exactly on New Years Day. Making it through October is just one step along the way.
