    Monthly Challenges are to long imo.
    I'm setting up weekly challenges.
    This is week 4 out of 52 weeks in the year

    This is the format of my weekly challenges.
    well its more like weekly targets
    you post on this thread a target of what you want
    e.g. no PMO
    <2 PMO
    <3 MO
    no shemale porn but softcore
    no hardcore porn but only softcore

    and tell my how many pmo you've done this week

    There are no failures just passes. If you pass a weekly you get 1 weekly pass badge that I will write in the next weeks challenge. The goal is to monitor your progress week by week, much more manageable than a month.
    You set your goal, and try to achieve same goal next week or better it. Lets take each week at a time and never give up.

    Please leave your target if you want to join the weekly challenge (4)

    NatureHeals - Target (no pmo rest of week) Amount of PMO this week (0)
    RestlessVoice (1 weekly badge)- Target (no P M.O or M.O & more karezza with my S.O) Amount of PMO this week (0)
    NewTerritories - Target (<5 hours no pmo) Amount of PMO this week (0 so far)
    niskanen91 - Target (no pmo rest of week) Amount of PMO this week (0)
    Wabi-sabi - Target (no sexual fantasy)
    TheLongWalk - Target (No PMO, No peeking)
    Hope2Overcome - Target - NO MO

    Previous week (3) badges

    Congratulations to Restless voice for passing the challenge the previous week you have earned a weekly badge

    My target for this week is: make it better than last week.

    And use the weekend purposefully. Plan something productive in advance. Use free time for reading my paper books, nonfiction and classics.

    I initially was going to write down that I need a target related to some sexual addiction like porn or masturbation but then released that Im taking a passive approach to beating this whereas your taking an active approach and looking at the bigger picture, nice!
    But if you want to take part on the challenge I would still need something related to either pmo or mo or whatver

    Count me in. Target: No PMO and very important no peeking because it always leads to relapses.

    I agree, keep a strict control of what you feed your brain especially early on in your reboot :)

    Challengers what are your thoughts?

    I'm not sure of adding it this week but I've thought of a scale to measure your progress

    Each week you achieve your taget and pass the challenge you will get 1 point
    You will lose half a point if you trip over just once in the week
    You will lose a full point if you trip twice in the week
    You cannot lose more than 1 full point, even if you trip over more than twice a week
    You do not go into negative numbers

    Points are carried over to next week

    This measuring scale measures long term behaviour not just short term and doesn't discourage if you trip over, you still have momentum so stick with it.

    Let me know if you see this as useful for motivation and to track your progress.
