Day 24 no P, no M I return more than 1.5 years later with my head hung low. This is my third go-around...though the last one was better than the first one...and this one is going well thus far. Perhaps the third time is the charm. My original journal: here The first post in that journal could literally be the first post in this journal. In fact, the circumstances are so similar that I won't bother repeating the details. I'll summarize: I had a great run from 8/13 to 1/14. Not only did I avoid P and M entirely for 160 days, I eliminated orgasm for 75 days. Things were much improved, though I went through ups and downs during that time. Then, I relapsed around the end of January 2014. Pretty mild, but I didn't get back on the wagon (just like my failure following my first reboot). Relapsing was a slow burn. My PMO habits were very sporadic at first and never got close to pre-YBOP patterns. But they've been damaging nevertheless. Fortunately, many of the benefits have stuck with me, but as with last time, I think much of my regression is masked by ED drugs. I can perform fairly well with the help of ED medication (as opposed to how I was before finding YBOP 2.5 years ago...when 2x max dose of Viagra did virtually nothing). But that's not the goal and it's silly to not fix this thing when it appears fixable. So I begin again. This place was great for me when I started a journal two years ago (literally to the day). When I returned here today, I did not intend to start another journal. My main purpose was to read my old journal entries to identify my path of progression during that time and how much I've regressed since falling off the wagon. It was an eye opener...and extremely valuable. Today, I spent hours reading what I'd written and the replies of various members. In the first entry of my first journal, I wrote that my biggest reason for writing a journal was to keep a record to which I could refer should I ever fall off the wagon. I'm glad I did--it has been hugely motivating and informative. So much so that I'm writing another journal for the same purpose...another record of success to remind myself of my progress and the benefits gained from cutting ouit PMO. Should I get weak in the future, it's another resource to help me get back up again. Which brings me to my biggest failing: not coming back here once I started having problems in early 2014. I think if I'd done that, if I'd reviewed what I'd written through the fall of 2013, I could have stopped my slide. Rather, I got comfortable and didn't notice the negative effects. They were so mild and unnoticeable since my relapse was so mild. This is the same thing that happened after my first reboot back in 2012: lots of progress and then a very slow regression that masked the negative impacts. You'd think I'd learn. Hopefully this time. Though this is the first day here this time around, it is the 24th day of my reboot. I've been having regular sex with orgasm, so I'm not including "no O" in my daily headings. I cut out orgasm for 2.5 months last time around and I might do something similar this time. I'm undecided at this point.
