This thread arose as a consequence of people being consistently unable to go cold turkey. I'm not advocating orgasm, nor am I advocating cold turkey. My point is that becoming obsessed with trying to do a "perfect reboot" could lead to rationalizations such as "If I'm going to fap, I might as well fap to porn and then start all over again". People are so preoccupied with the "long streak of abstinence" that they forget that fapping 4 times in a month is better than fapping 7 times in a month, or that fapping without porn is better than fapping with porn. They keep going "back to zero" everytime they relapse, hoping that someday they might be able to achieve the mighty 100 days of abstinence, without realizing that small decisions such as fapping once in a day instead of 3 times make a huge difference.
