    Day 3

    Not a bad day, caught my own instinct to edge and stopped that train of thought dead in its tracks. Onwards and upwards!

  4. 35 days check in my fellowship.
    I'm starting a social media detox tonight including this forum for a week (maybe 2). I'll check back in after my detox is done.

    Day 82. @RiseToGreatness, I have been reflecting on your question as to whether I feel ready to date again. Part of me is and part of me is not. The process of meeting girls, facing rejection, and building a constructive (consensual sex) rather than destructive (PM) sex life is a necessary experience for me. I am of the opinion that orgasm and sex should not be looked at as a problem as long as you are not a sex addict or in the throws of PM addiction/binging.

    PM is artificial sex in the same way junk food is artificial food. It overstimulates your brain but leaves you feeling unsatisfied and wanting more. If you are morbidly obese you have to quit junk food (PM) and manifest a constructive relationship with food (sex). You cannot cut out food altogether as this leads to an equally damaging disease such as bulimia or anorexia. Abstaining from PMO for a long period of time is fantastic and absolutely necessary if you are addicted to PMO but eventually, you need to start thinking about what you want your sex life to be like once you have overcome your addiction to PM. To me, NoFap is about finding a healthy and natural relationship with sex and sharing it with others rather than abstaining from it for as long as possible.

    I do feel that I still have a long way to go and I worry that having sex will cause me to relapse on PM. For these reasons it is hard to say whether I am ready or not. My plan as of now is to start making a concerted effort to meet girls at the 90-day no PMO mark. This is simply my opinion, what my PMO journey means to me, and how I am approaching it. I know that some of you will disagree with what I have said above and I value your opinion. Everyone's journey is unique to his or her values and life.

    well, nofap isn´t actually social media bro, and it´s very important to stay accountable with the Brotherhood. if you want to take a break that´s fine, but at least check with your AP´s. don´t cut all your links to the reboot community, it´s not good for you.

    sounds good to me bro :). i think at 90 days you have build a good fundation on how to stay pmo free, and you are emotionally more solid, so if you feel ready to date, i support you :)

    I always stay positive, and i intend to stay in that way. I'd been in a very bad period before I relapsed tihs time. I relapsed like every 2 days. But now, I managed to control the urges for 9 days. There are still a lot of work to do but I think that I am on the right track.

    Staying positive is great but what do you have in mind under the 'the right track? What do you plan to do everyday to stay on it?
