    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.

    Repeating reboot. Fell off the wagon a while ago and need to reboot. Friggin P is everywhere. Goal is no P for 90 days. Haven’t flatlined yet but feel close. Need to get this back under control.

    Guess I'll sign on. This is one of the hardest months to be abstinent I find, what with stressful family gatherings and time off work with little to do. I need a month though. Haven't done a month in half a year.

    I am surely up to this task. Abstaining PMO for dec is a decent farewell!!
    I haven't achieved any milestones yet on the rebooting path however this is going to be a hell of the fight.

    bro you're awesome. why didn't I came up with such an inspiring and motivative idea?!
    you're absolutely right.
    a month without PMO is a decent farewell to 2018. and it's also a wonderful greeting to 2019.

    I'm in.
    my goal is at least 90d without P. my ultimate goal is to quit all artificial sexual stimuli, forever, just like those who wanna fight with alcohol or tobacco addiction.
    I wanna quit pron because it didn't help with my stress actually, and this addiction offen make things worse. I've already have too much stress in my life, I don't wanna put myself in STRESS 2.0 anymore. what's more, my first streak of 30d is one of my best time this year, I nearly fell in love with myself at that time, haha.

    hope to see you guys tomorrow. good luck!

    Hello everyone! I just signed up. I want to try to go for full 90 days. That means until March the 6th. I will go for PM, as I am married and would like to dedicate my whole sexual needs towards my relationship. Well, wish me luck!

    my question is... after 30, or 90 days, depends on your length, do you give yourself a break on day 91? or just continue into infinity...
