    Well, I have made it to my longest streak yet. 10 days. I'll consider it an accomplishment.

    I think I'll start a little journal here, and track my progress... My addiction has gotten much, much worse over the years, and only after my son was born did I really start to come to terms with how much of a problem it is. I've always felt guilty about it, especially when I started doing things like PMO at work, but I never did anything to stop it really. After the last 6 months of so of half-assed attempts at rebooting, I'm making some real attempts now. I made it ten days, but I just relapsed tonight, and I know that my mistake was edging too much over the past few days.. If I keep teasing myself and pulling back, at some point, it's going to be much, much harder to keep the beast at bay. So, for future reference self.. Quit the edging.
    No Porn, no masturbation, no edging for 30 days is my next goal. Starting now.

    Wish me luck, ya'll.
     
  2. Bravo Tass, it's difficult at first definitely, just keep at it. I've myself had trouble after 1 week then 2 weeks similarly to yours b/c I never defined what PMO would stand for. I tried making new counters to support the idea of not resetting my PMO counter i.e. separate one for P, M and O. And I too, as recently as a day ago, relapsed. Know why you're here and try to dig out the roots instead of just attacking the stem of PMO. I've since redefined that I won't intentionally do either P or P-subs, M or edging and ofc that includes no O. I still don't know if actual sex is grounds for reset (LOL like that's an option for me any time soon :p) but imo, I just want a clear start. Early, bright and fresh. Keep strong!

    Thanks for your response man. I've been wondering, I keep hearing the term P-subs, what does it stand for? Porn substitutes maybe?
     
    Rav70 and ons.obb_swaha like this.
  4. That's my presumption and I decided to roll with it. Anything basically that takes roots in giving you the same feeling as porn and PMO.. especially the negative ones!

    Holding strong since my reboot a few days back I'm glad to say. Went to a water park with my wife yesterday though, and good god, so much flesh, so many bikinis. It was tempting after I came home, but I kept busy and kept myself PMO free, no edging.

    Recommend not going to the water park during a reboot. D'ahhh..

    Well, I guess I made it to about a week again. I keep messing up at the point when I get overly stressed by too many things at the same time, and then I give up the ghost..
    Gotta remember to watch out when I'm getting extra stressed, or when my wife is frustrated with me, etc.
