Dear all, I started a new thread for this, because I think it deserves one. You can, however, read more details in my journal, here: http://www.yourbrainrebalanced.com/index.php?topic=5008.msg74217#msg74217 So, this is what I have found: An alternative way of rebooting (the NO-O method) ---------------------------------------------------------------- Approximately 40 days ago I had my last orgasm from PMO. At that point I started the reboot (because of severe ED), but unfortunately I couldn't commit myself to full PMO abstinence. So I watched P and M to it quite rarely... every 2nd or 3rd day, and for short periods of time (~5 min). I always had a full, good erection during these short "sessions". What I managed to do, however, was to not edge and don't get close to Orgasm. Interestingly, about 10 days ago (so 30 days into the no-O "reboot"), I felt into a terrible flatline (no libido, no erections and no interest in porn or women). During these last 10 days I didn't watch porn because I started to hate it ! I tried to watch and couldn't for more than 10 seconds. It's as if my mind did a 180 degree turn around due to not getting the orgasm reward at the end of each PM session. Now it's very, very easy to abstain from PMO entirely and I strongly believe that this is one of the easiest ways to get rid of this problem. It's like building repulsion towards porn, a little, day-by-day (gradually limiting the orgasmic reward possibility. Your mind just gives up, it seems, if no-O is reached after about 30 days). During these 40 days, I didn't struggle and I had little or almost no withdrawal symptoms (maybe a bit around the 7-10 day mark of no-O). However, the positive rewards are all there, but they showed themselves in a much smoother way. More confidence, better health, more energy, more mental clarity, more positive outlook on live, much less depression, less sleep needed, etc. are very much real results ! I'm trying to reboot for more than 1 year now and never reached this point so easily and full of so much calming confidence. All my previous reboot attempts were absolutely awful to my mental health, I felt into serious depressions and my body had aches all over... I even wanted to commit suicide at mark Day 22 into one of my first reboots (documented on reuniting.info). So anyone out there who did a similar "start" to their reboots, you are welcome to chime in !
