    Hello and welcome to the official signup thread for PMO-Free July 2018!

    The purpose of this thread is to provide Rebooters with a place to share their commitment to abstaining from particular sexual behaviors throughout the entire month. Although it is strongly recommended to make a public commitment, posting in this thread is not required for participation in a reboot.

    New to reboot? Here are some suggestions:
    1. Learn about porn addiction, excessive masturbation, and abstaining from PMO (a process called "reboot" or "rebooting"). Our free Getting Started guide that is advertised everywhere is a great option.
    2. Decide if abstaining from PMO is something that you really want. If you don't buy into the process 100%, you'll probably not make it through the month. If you have decided that you would like to participate, proceed to step three.
    3. Sign up for this month by replying to this thread.
    4. Consider setting up a PMO-tracking day counter to monitor your progress.
    5. Create a Journal Thread and share your progress periodically, preferably on a daily basis. Not only does this help you stay accountable, it documents valuable anecdotal evidence that will ultimately help other people going through similar situations in the future.
    6. Ask questions and get support by posting on NoFap. Help others, too, if you are able to.
    7. Get an accountability partner.
    Would you like to participate? If so, please reply to this thread with the following information.
    • Are you not going to allow yourself to masturbate? View porn? Orgasm whatsoever? Not allowing any outlet for sexual release is dubbed "hard mode". For a full list of parameters, see our Rebooting 101 page.
    • How long do you want this challenge to last? By default it is one month, but 90 days is recommended for rebooting. You can't know how long it will take to "rewire" your brain, it widely varies due to individual circumstances. Some people require a year or longer to regain sexual function.
    • What are your goals?
    • Why are you doing this?
    Coming in after this month has already started?

    Don't panic - it is not a problem. Users sign up for NoFap's rebooting events all months long. Just follow the instructions above and jump in at any time by replying to this thread.

    Entering with this challenge with no expectations. If I do 30 days then great, if not then I'll keep on trying.

    I'm in. Going for one month no PMO. I need clarity to decide what is and is not healthy for me. And it's all cloudy right now. In this past year 21 days is longest I've gone. Appreciate support of the group.

    I was born in this month, I'm in. Btw @Alexander do you have a real journal ? Or do you simply manage the forum with your team ?

    • Are you not going to allow yourself to masturbate? View porn? Orgasm whatsoever? Not allowing any outlet for sexual release is dubbed "hard mode". For a full list of parameters, see our Rebooting 101 page.
    NO PMO-Lust (pre-marital sex), so hardmode ?
    • How long do you want this challenge to last? By default it is one month, but 90 days is recommended for rebooting. You can't know how long it will take to "rewire" your brain, it widely varies due to individual circumstances. Some people require a year or longer to regain sexual function.
    I read once that it's actually 3 months clean per years of addiction to be completely recovered, so in my case 3*16= 4 years+. Since it's July then how can it would exceed July ? I don't get it. Maybe do a "cold season challenge" for winter and autumn.
    • What are your goals?
    Financial & location secured tax-proof (reasonable) abundance and freedom before 25yo (in 2 years and 3 weeks), with >500€/mo net legal passive perceived in some country.
    • Why are you doing this?
    It feels so much better, I really can do it, I'm sick of the quagmire, I don't want to be like the zombies, I preserve myself for my wife, I want to glorify God, I'm curious about the bliss after that current trap, I want to be my real me finally and experience my dear wishes.

    Slipped and fell today ;-(

    But I learned not to wait for tomorrow to start my recovery.

    My recovery starts today.

    Every day is what I make of it and today will end as a day of success :)
