Should I go a full 90 days? Or should I take the easier way?

    I've been debating in my head, if I should either go 90 days non stop, or should I make it easier for myself, and start smaller? Maybe like 7 days, then 10, 14, 18, 22, 25, 30, until I get to 90.

    I haven't been doing PMO for very long...
    Started 9 months ago.

    honestly i'd reccommend just learning to stop watching porn maybe even still masturbate for while, until you no longer need to watch the images. Slower is a lot better than faster. BUT IF YOUR UP TO THE TASK try HardMode! and you'll be on your way to Inner-Freedom in no time.

  3. Start with the easier missions first. Then slowly move up

    It is tremendous that you have the wisdom to recognise PMO as unhealthy and unhelpful at such an early stage. I would think everyone here, even a year older than you, wishes they had your insight at 14. :)

    My answer to your question is to cut out P, M and O (hard mode) and to aim for achievable goals. :) As you progress, what is achievable will increase, naturally. For example, 3 days. Then add another four days to 7 days. Thereafter, continue counting in multiples of 7. Once you get to 91 (13 x 7), you can aim for multiples of ten: 100 onwards, or you can start counting in months instead of weeks. Every reboot is different. It is good to ask advice from several people, as you have done here. Then you can select the option that feels right for you. Whatever is effective is your best option. Good luck. :)

    Yeah, I think that is a good idea.
    Additionally, Hard Mode is more for people who have been using it for years upon years.

    Thanks, IGY.
    I'll do it!
    I feel as if god has destined me for greatness.
    That's why I found this a problem so early on...
    Also, I realized something...
    For the past 9 months.. (Ever since i started PMO'ing)
    I've been so much ruder to my parents.
    I never cursed out my parents before, until I started excessive masturbation, a few months ago.
    It really caused me to be angry all the time...
    I feel so bad, because cursing at my parents is now normal... :(

    That is so interesting mate. That is something you need to reverse. As you progress, it will resolve itself I'm sure. :)

    Man... I always talk about being something great when I grow up.
    No great person ever cursed out their parents.
    No great person was ever rude to their parents
    No great person was always in an angry mood.

    I know this is all caused from my addiction.
    It has altered my personality.
    I see myself as a different person... :(

    You are right, 100% and I can feel your sadness.
    Even so, you are making a positive change buddy.
    It will not be too hard to return to your previous character. :)

    We all have greatness within. Keep digging inside! You can’t go cold turkey without deeper reason. Find something meaningful to replace it.
