    Guys, I hope you don't mind, but I think it's time to reinstate the challenges. So, let's make it through September. Getting ready ...

    THE RULES
    (adapted from Jan15 challenge, we had almost 40! participants back then)

    1. No PMO/MO in September. This includes edging (from a few seconds of testing to hours) and watching P, and/or any intentional relapses.

    2. Feel free to have sex. O with a partner is fine.

    3. Wet dreams do not count as you cannot control them. But no fantasizing beforehand to get a greater chance of achieving a wet dream or something similar.

    4. Entry is possible from now until the 10th of September. However, in order to join late, you must have stayed clean from September 1st 12:00AM (your current timezone). And no fapping on planes to exploit timezones.

    5. Your challenge starts retroactively from Sep 1st so if you have relapsed in September but before you enter, you are unfortunately out.

    6. *Important: please post an update around the 10th and 25th if you haven't recently. If I don't hear from you from Sep 25th till Oct 1st, it will count as being out, even if you haven't relapsed. We like to have strong competitors among us, not just hidden somewhere.

    7. Be honest if you relapse. Don't cheat yourself.

    8. When you sign up, I encourage you to state what you are aiming for and why you are doing it

    Good luck to all of you!!!

    PIED with new partner was humiliating, things are slowly getting better with her but I still have what-if anxiety that I need to crush.

    New guy, count me in. Same situ as heymanniceshot, PIED with new partner means pride took a severe beating and looking for redemption

    Glad to hear!
    Added the new entrants, welcome to you all

    @Wabi-sabi: apparently, exploiting timezones was a problem for some. The addicted mind is creative as hell... will be great to see all this potential used for good

    I was considering having a last session before the month started. Didn't. So it's been a few days. Nearly a week already!

    I had planned a date today. She cancelled. Not gonna let that get me down.

    Sorry to hear that, NewTerritories. But kudos for resisting the "one-last-time-spiral" and staying strong even after a setback.

    I am enjoying my first two-digit streak in a long time

    Looks like I have just made the cut off to get in. I am 30 days into my reboot atm but this will help no doubt. May the power of September be with us all!

    Nice :)

    I have been thinking about this "in or out" thing. I don't like the idea that people who relapse are out and lose the will to keep on. They shouldn't get the feeling that they are no longer accountable and can binge for the rest of the month. In the past, people dropping out of a challenge did not reply any more in the thread so we had no idea whether they picked it up afterwards or not. So maybe a "runner up" category open to entrants all month long and motivation for those who relapsed to keep on might be more appropriate? On the other hand, I don't want to lower the inhibition threshold to relapse. Rebooting shouldn't be tied to the start of a month or anything, but the spirit of a challenge certainly helps. We are almost 10 days in and not a single relapse, which is more than great to see and a big motivator. Any thoughts?
