    I've always wondered what most people do when they completed the 90-day challenge. The goal of the 90 day-challenge, as it says in the description, is to complete it and then never come back. So do most people relapse after they finished the streak or rather continue the streak? And what about doing pmo but in a balanced way?

    I'm asking because I'm a university student atm. I'm hoping to be able to complete the 90-day challenge but I simply wouldn't know what to do after that. I'm now enjoying all the benefits of rebooting, but you can probably also understand that it's impossible for me to say at this age that I won't do pmo anymore for the next 3 years or so. So therefore I also wonder what benefits you still get from, for example, watching porn or having sex once a week after you finished the 90 day challenge.

    I'm just very curious as I don't have a clear goal at the moment. All opinions are welcome!

    If you are truly addicted, the best thing to do is cut it out forever. Eventually you should no longer count days or think about avoiding PMO as it will be a part of your lifestyle.

    If you don't have a serious issue with it, doing it on some kind of controlled schedule would be best I suppose. But if it escalates I would turn to option 1.

  3. I relapsed after 90 days and it was probably one of my worst ideas of all time.

    I am currently trying to complete 90 days free of PMO. The reason i am doing this is I'm a porn Addict and i am hoping going through 90 days without PMO will help rewire my brain so i can eventually become a recovering porn addict. The key word is recovering porn addict as i know i will never be cured and any relapse regardless of how long i have been clean will start the whole ball rolling again. You say you are enjoying all the benefits of rebooting so why would you want to do PMO in a balanced way? If your life is better while you are rebooting why not continue that path after the 90 days and beyond? I think you need to ask yourself why am i doing the 90 day challenge? If it's simply to see if you can do it then i think you will eventually turn back to PMO pretty soon. I think most people who do achieve this goal only relapse because like me they are an addict and beating this addiction is bloody hard. I hope you can complete the 90 day challenge and then maybe take stock and say is my life better or worse with PMO in it? If it's not worse then you have your answer for going forward. Goodluck.

    Thanks for the advice my man. I will definitely try the 90 days and then we'll see if I feel better with or without pmo. Your words definitely made sense to me.

    Find a suitable girl and make sweet love to her. Maybe marry that girl one day and never turn your back to porn again.
