    hi all NoFap members, am proud of you all,together we can succede....

    am on day 5 NoFap,i was addicted to porn and masturbation.....i am experiencing positive changes...my confidence goes up and social skills are exciting...it is becoming so easy to interact with people and other.....

    back to the heading,,,in my opinion NO PMO means complete abstinence from porn,masturbation and orgasm....and in this case this does not apply to a married man who will be doing NO PM(no porn and masturbation)......

    my question is what is NO PMO as it is used and understood by NoFap community??????

    if i am in no PMO,and i find a girl friend and we build a healthy sex relationship,will i still be on it(NO PMO)....

    thats all friends....pls forgive me if i dont organize well my words,,,jah bless you.

    There are lots of things to read on the site that cover this issue. It seems to be up to the individual to determine their own level. Many of the people here are on "hard mode", which basically means no PMO at all during the length of your reboot (which for most people is around 90 days), including no O with a partner. If you're a single guy, that might be the best place to start. Get yourself sorted out before you worry about finding a girlfriend.

    Good luck.

    Hi! Sorry this is an old post, I know. But I was thinking, if I was trying 'hard mode' and I watched P today without M or O, does that mean I am now on day one again?

  5. I believe any porn viewing is a reset, because porn is what we're attempting to eliminate from our lives. The moment you compromise with porn, you're losing the war. With that said, it's up to you to determine your goals with regards to M and O, but if you are already attempting hard mode, then any P, M, or O would automatically be a reset. I hope to not discourage you with this response, but if you have already watched P and are needing to reset, look at your overall progress and be encouraged. This is a journey, and your goal of 30 days is a mile marker and not a destination. If you haven't watched P and are simply asking for informational purposes, hope I've helped, but by all means stay away from it. Why put your face back into the slime when you're fighting to extricate yourself from it?

    I think you are totally right! I have to be more careful about what I do! (intentional porn viewing or not... ~ it needs to stop!)
    My ultimate goal is to reboot! ;)

    Hi guys!

    I was on NO PMO for almost 130 days with 3 nocturnal emission. However, today went for body message with female & during this period I was on high & released Semen/ Sperm unwillingly. Does this a reset !?

    No, you didn't actively masturbate while watching porn. That was an unwilling orgasm. You went for a massage and had an orgasm. I'm glad it wasn't a massage place that gives "happy endings". Those are off our diets. Keep on keeping on. By the way, if you were participating in NNN, that is over for you. I'm not fully up to date on NNN, just that you're not supposed to have an orgasm during that entire month. I'm 59 and my sexual peak is behind me. So far, not PMOing has been very successful for me. Today is three weeks and it's been reasonably calm and easy with no incidents. NNN still has 18 days left in it so we're about halfway through it. I know if you go to the No Nut November subreddit on Reddit, they tell you the ground rules for that event. After 19 days of nofap, if I went to a massage parlor and they did a non-sexual massage, I'd have an orgasm too. By the way, as a prostate cancer survivor, I no longer am able to ejaculate. Hell since after the surgery, I can't even rise to the occasion anymore.

    Sadly the owner doesn't do anything to help, except keeping the forum up, so there isn't a place to get all the info and every few weeks the same questions keep coming up. PMO is 1 way to recover from porn addiction. It doesn't work for many because it's too vague and it might not even be the main problem people have. For example in my case I had to do noP which is just no porn and reduce media consumption in order to be able to stop PMO. Before that I struggled for years but now I'm porn free.
    There's also noPM which is done by many that aren't or don't stay single and there is a more extreme version of noPMO called monk mode which is no media or something like that.
    Whichever method you pick you should know that any image, video, story that has anything to do with sex or any fantasy related to those is porn and you need to quit it to recover.
