    My personal record is 8 days without the internet. I had just relapsed badly and I was so angry that just the sight of my computer made me feel bad, so I felt no desire to use it for a while.
    In normal situations, what helps a lot is to always ave something to do: work, study, read, going out. If you stay at home doing nothing, boredom will quickly push you to waste time on the net.

    Hi Loro,
    Initially i wasn't an internet freak, i was just a pornography freak. So when i realized this, I refused to renew my internet connection when it expired and cultivated an habit of going to a busy cyber cafe on fridays to check and reply my mails. I would buy internet time for an hour and rush my activities within the lapse of that hour.
    I am particularly interested in this challenge because i realized that a flash glimpse of an online lady in bikini is enough to tamper with my rebooting. A thirty second of flash pornography alone can take me back to zero. Although, i understand we all have different experiences, but i have come to realize that limiting ones over use of the internet is extremely important. I hope we guys from this thread can set up modal-ties on how to manage the use of internet. It surely would help
    So guys, lets get up. the battle is ours to win
    @ forgotten, can u please share reasons for your relapse and its effect on your reboot

    @flyade
    Well, after a few months wasted relapsing every two weeks or so on softcore porn, I freaked out and thought: fuck, I'm not going anywhere in this way; at this point, it doesn't make any difference if I relapse on hardcore porn. I watched it and didn't find it exciting at all. It felt very boring instead. So I got angry with myself for having craved such a worthless thing like porn for months, and felt very motivated to take the rebooting process for serious. And that's how I am at day 53 clean now.

    Ok guys. I will begin this challenge tomorrow. You can join by posting here a reply with just the word "IN" written in it the first time you read this, and then begin the challenge tomorrow (if you're reading this today, sunday 10) or immediately after doing that (if you are reading this on monday 11). It doesn't matter if you only see this message, for instance, tomorrow afternoon or evening: it's not a few bonus hours that will make worthless doing this.
    Sorry for the very short forewarning, but I really need to begin this soon.
    IN SHORT: THE CHALLENGE BEGINS MONDAY 11, AND YOU CAN GO BACK USING THE NET ON MONDAY 18.
    So, I will be off the internet a few hours from now and come back, if I succeed, a week from now.
    Good luck!
