    Hi everyone,

    How are we today? Im just writing this post to thank everyone in the Nofap forum for writing tips and their own experiences for everyone to read. Without out the constant support, I would never have made it to 7 days without PMO, the longest period time I think I have ever abstained since I started masturbation.

    Yesterday and today have been very tough, and today, unfortunately, I did edge and watch some arousing footage of a fetish of mine. Im dissappointed in myself for watching it at all.

    I have no idea whether this affects the progress of my brain rewiring, but at least I didnt masturbate, I didnt touch myself which is alot better than if I did.

    I don't know whether or not this is counted as a relapse, I really hope not, Ive never come this far before and I want to go further

    Hey dude!

    First of all, congrats on making 7 days! That's an accomplishment considering that you've never gone that far before, but it's also impressive just as it is --- making it past the first few days is never easy.

    As far as edging, P, etc, it MIGHT have complicated the recovery process somewhat, but most people take "resetting" as when you P,M, AND O all together. I would personally keep going and just keep your mental and emotional guard up so you're less likely to compromise yourself. So, no, i wouldn't call it a "reset", but that's really up to you.

    Again, great job making it to 7 days. You're awesome, bro!

    I wouldn't call that a reset, especially where MO is concerned. It really is up to you as an individual and what is most important for you to abstain from. Some members have counters which count P and MO separately, so if you wanted to you could reset one without affecting the other.

    Sounds like you are doing really well though, I know how powerful the temptations can be I had a difficult morning today myself (which luckily ended in a cold shower instead of an orgasm)

    Keep going, you've made a breakthrough with 7 days, use it as fuel (just be careful around that computer)

    Well done Fapstronaut!

    I find it's really helpful to have something, if not MORE interesting - at least pretty interesting to do. I've been devouring both fiction and non-fiction since New Year and always have a couple of good books on the go on my Kindle. The worst for me is opening my laptop with no special plan and thinking - ok so what am I going to go for today? It's fatal. So when I do open up the computer I try to have something specific to do or look up. Or if not, I leave it shut or off and do something else. Until I can totally take it or leave it (leave it is better) distraction is helpful.

    Well done amigo and cheers

    Sorry for my late reply guys, but wow, thankyou so much for all the support and love you have given me, I truly appreciate it.

    I wont be resetting at all, Ive decided that I would have to PMO all together for a reset.

    Thankyou all so much :)
