Well time to give this another serious attempt. Ive had 2 pretty good tries and I have come away with things to do and things to avoid. My past attempts were 1 month exactly and the other was basically the whole month of January of this year, I would say about 40 days. My goal both times was 100 days and thats what im aiming for again. My motivation for this is just to gain self control and discipline as I dont really have any trouble with ED issues. Just trying to gain that balance back again.

My temptation scale theory.

Remember the terror level alert system? Ive come up with a similar model for PMO temptations during a reboot.

Level 1: Boredom, I would classify this as a low level temptation because there is no triggers or cues that prompt you, except maybe environment. To experienced rebooters this will not be to hard to bypass. Of course some of us are easily brought down by this if we are not ready to fight it.

Once an addict, always an addict?

Is this a true statement? I think most people misunderstand what it means. Your natural defensive mechanisms come up when you hear this but all it simply means is that there will always be the chance of relapsing meaning your never truly out of the woods with your addiction. You can go 5 days, 30 days, 100 days, 300 days, 5 years, etc...but the addiction can be triggered at anytime so its never really safe to say that youll NEVER do it again no matter how many days go by.
