The NICE Reboot by Penina Rybak download in ePub, pdf, iPad
Flatline Many rebooters report one or more periods of zero libido during their reboot. Monitor your thoughts during sex. Groups Many of the same benefits found in an accountability partnership can be found in even larger accountability groups. Or you might have a week of feeling apathetic, and wake up the next day feeling upbeat. By working as a team to reach their reboot goal, groups members can develop lasting relationships to see them through their recovery.
For instance, video games and reading can be relaxing hobbies for one rebooter while providing destructive escapism for another rebooter. It may last for several weeks, but it will more than likely go away eventually. For many rebooters, negative thoughts and feelings can trigger urges to use porn, ultimately leading to a reset or relapse. Transitioning from an overexcited libido to none at all can be disconcerting and even scary.
Members can find accountability partners on the forums. However, rebooters who plan on still having orgasms during their reboot will want to stay vigilant for the Chaser Effect during their reboot. Refrain from taking on more habits until your first set have become second nature. Many rebooters do a Hard Mode reboot by default since they do not have partners or are not sexually active.
In this case, practicing kegel exercises can help alleviate pain. This can be a good entry point for users who want to test the water with a shorter challenge while experiencing the camaraderie of participating in a community event. As with wet dreams, spontaneous emissions are not grounds for a reset, and will in all likelihood go away after the rebooter acclimates to ejaculating less frequently.
Participating at NoFap is a great chance to help others. We advocate that you do quit porn for good, and most people who have achieved reboot decide to cut porn out of their lives forever. With porn left in the past, rebooters can look forward to a future where they no longer have to hide themselves. The stories the community shares are inspiring.
Hobbies Working on a hobby is a good way to pass the time. Being fully rebooted means that your brain has recovered from the effects of problem habits, namely masturbating excessively to pornography. Our surveys show that after completing a reboot, most users report an increase in overall energy and motivation and about a quarter report an increase in a sense of tranquility. There are ups, and there are often downs. Breaking free from shame and the social anxiety commonly associated with it in turn transfers to other areas of life.
Heavy users might have unconsciously been throwing away two, three, four, or more hours each day looking at porn. You do not even need to be physically aroused to have it occur. Hit the forums, ask questions, read stories. Be aware that those first few days back will be difficult, in part because of the Chaser Effect.
Spontaneous Emissions Just as some rebooters have wet dreams, spontaneous emissions can occur during waking life. Some ambitious users will try to go an entire year, while other users are so entrenched in their behaviors that reaching two weeks proves a difficult challenge for them. We feel these positive changes will happen, for most people, when they stick with a challenge. See Habits and Hobbies, above.
