How Long Does It Set You Back to Look at Porn For 15-20 min?

  1. I've been doing no MO for going on four weeks now, but in that time I've looked at a few things, usually for 15-20 minutes. I just did it about a half hour ago, for about 5 minutes. Can anyone give me an idea what I'm doing to myself by doing this? I know it's not going anywhere good.

    Something I've noticed. I was just starting a flatline last week (waking up massively depressed, after brutally harsh dreams where my subconscious was basically telling me how much I've screwed up over the years), and then on the 2nd or 3rd day of the flatline, I looked at some stuff for an hour or two. No MO, no touching myself or anything, just looked and then took a cold shower. But I noticed it kicked me out of flatline, as the next day I felt a lot better. Which ironically left me hankering for the flatline.

    Do I have to wait another few weeks to get the flatline back? Is there any reason not to just call it a loss and MO here?

    That last line, lol.....ADDICTION talking. The answer is no.

    Think of getting better as filling up a gas tank. Every day you succeed you add a few drops, and every time you mess up, you take away some, depending on the length of time and what you're doing. What you are trying to do is get to the level of "filled", that will allow good erectile and mental function. So depending on how filled up a persons gas tank is, is how much PMO'ing is gonna send them back. If you are way higher than the line, then your dicks still gonna work, if you were at the line and now are under, your shit would have worked but now won't. My personal opinion is that the lower the person's tank is at the start of rebooting, it takes exponentially longer to fill the tank.

    If you get aroused or it feels good, you are draining the tank. That's all there is to it.

    I will say that yes, I find to get into that deep level of flatline, I have to be pretty well perfect no arousal to get there and it takes 10-14 days. When you get there, guard it. But if you mess up, don't be like, "aaah I slightly messed up so I'm going on a 4 hour binge", that's dumb. That is one of the prime reasons people blow diets, keep drinking, or whatever, they mess up slightly and disregard the momentum they've achieved and then just deep dive right back into the shit.
