My Story

Hi, my name is Carson, and I am just a regular guy. I watch sports, play video games, work a 9-5. I used to not work out. I ate fast food. I just existed. But about a year ago I was recommended a health-based podcast by a friend and it sent me down a wormhole of education. I have since lost 33 pounds (dropped from 218 to 185 pounds), feel and look great, eat healthy, workout daily, have a great sex life, and am emotionally well and happy! My goal is to lose 40-50 pounds total, have defined abs, and continue learning and growing every day… With this peer group, I know I will get there!

Everything I have learned was piecemeal, a little here in a podcast, a little there in a book. So I compiled it all into this one easy-to-consume page. Plus I paired it with the most important element… I created a local Grow Offline community. “You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.” It is 100% true. There is a demand for co-learning, camaraderie, and accountability in our “remote” world. I think of my Grow Offline community as a “decentralized mind” with like-minded men reading, studying, and sharing information, therefore raising the collective knowledge of this peer group!

Besides diet and fitness, I will share my journey of grappling with erectile dysfunction (ED), low testosterone, and porn addiction, and how I found my way to recovery. For years, I struggled silently, feeling trapped in a cycle of shame, frustration, and despair. It wasn’t until I started researching and testing that I began to unravel the complexities of my conditions and pave a path toward healing.

It all began slowly – a harmless curiosity that gradually spiraled into an all-consuming obsession. Like many others, I found myself drawn into the vast, seductive realm of porn, OnlyFans, etc. where fantasies morphed into compulsions, and boundaries blurred. At first, it was merely an escape, a fleeting dopamine hit from the stresses of daily life. But before I knew it, I was watching porn multiple times per day. It dictated my desires, hurt my relationships, and killed my motivation.

As my consumption of pornography escalated, so too did the insidious effects it brought upon my psyche and my body. I found myself increasingly disconnected from reality, seeking solace in PornHub, NSFW Reddit, OnlyFans Twitter accounts, etc. 

It wasn’t long before I began to notice the telltale signs of erectile dysfunction creeping into my life – moments of intimacy scared by anxiety and inadequacy, and this sense of failure lurking beneath the surface for each future sexual encounter which snowballed into full-blown ED. Each failed encounter only drove me further into the arms of my porn addiction.

For years, I suffered in silence, too ashamed to seek help, and too afraid to confront the issues that held me captive. It wasn’t until I started my research journey last year that I learned the intricate link between porn addiction, low testosterone, and erectile dysfunction that the pieces began to fall into place. Suddenly, everything made sense – the dopamine-induced desensitization, the rewiring of my brain’s pleasure pathways, the ED failures with girls.

Armed with this newfound understanding, I embarked on a journey of self-improvement and healing. It wasn’t easy – breaking free from the grip of addiction never is – but with each passing day, I found myself reclaiming pieces of myself that I thought were lost forever. 

Slowly but surely, I began to rebuild my relationship with sexuality, unlearning the harmful narratives that had been ingrained within me and rediscovering the joy of non-porn intimacy. And with each small victory, each moment of connection, each instance of self-compassion, I felt myself growing stronger, more resilient, and more whole.

I share all this not as a victim, but as a success story – a testament to the power of knowledge and resilience. My journey is far from over, but I take comfort in knowing that I am no longer defined by my past, but rather empowered by the possibilities of my future! And if my story can serve as a beacon of hope for even just one person grappling with similar struggles, then it will have all been worth it!

How to Increase Testosterone

Low testosterone can manifest through various symptoms, which may vary in severity from person to person.

Low Testosterone Symptoms

Some common symptoms of low testosterone include:

  1. Reduced Libido: A decrease in sexual desire or libido is one of the most common symptoms of low testosterone levels.
  2. Erectile Dysfunction (ED): Men with low testosterone levels may experience difficulty achieving or maintaining erections, leading to problems with sexual performance.
  3. Fatigue and Decreased Energy Levels: Low testosterone levels can contribute to feelings of fatigue, reduced energy, and a general sense of lethargy.
  4. Loss of Muscle Mass and Strength: Testosterone plays a crucial role in maintaining muscle mass and strength. Individuals with low testosterone levels may experience muscle loss, weakness, and decreased physical performance.
  5. Increased Body Fat: Low testosterone levels can lead to an increase in body fat, particularly around the abdomen (i.e. the beer belly). This change in body composition may also be accompanied by a decrease in muscle mass.
  6. Mood Changes: Testosterone influences mood regulation, and low levels of this hormone may contribute to feelings of irritability, depression, or anxiety.
  7. Decreased Bone Density: Testosterone is essential for maintaining bone health, and low levels of this hormone can lead to decreased bone density and an increased risk of osteoporosis.
  8. Hair Loss: While testosterone is not directly responsible for hair loss, low levels of this hormone may contribute to thinning hair or loss of hair.
  9. Sleep Disturbances: Some individuals with low testosterone levels may experience sleep disturbances, such as insomnia or disrupted sleep patterns.
  10. Cognitive Changes: Testosterone plays a role in cognitive function, and low levels of testosterone may contribute to difficulties with concentration, memory, or cognitive processing speed.

Testing Testosterone Levels: First, you will want to check your testosterone levels.

Testosterone Supplement Stack

My total testosterone level tested at 300 ng/dL (you should be 400+), so I took the following supplements to boost my testosterone naturally.

Testosterone Supplement Stack:

  • Tongkat Ali: 400 mg daily
  • Fadogia Agrestis: 600 mg daily (cycle two months on and two months off)
  • Zinc: 15 mg daily (includes 1 mg of Copper which helps Zinc absorption)
  • Boron: 2 mg daily
  • Magnesium Complex: 500 mg daily (also, if you have any issues with constipation, this will give you a nice “soft serve” 💩 every morning)

Test if you are low in Vitamin D.

If you test below 20 ng/mL of Vitamin D, add the following supplement daily.

  • Vitamin D: 5,000 IU daily
  • Vitamin D alternative: On a sunny day, sit outside with your skin exposed for at least 10 minutes. If it is overcast, you’ll need at least 20 minutes.

A nice all-in-one testosterone supplement I pivoted to recently covered most of my required daily doses via one product (combined my individual Zinc, Copper, Boron, Magnesium, and Vitamin D supplements into one). 

Using all these testosterone supplements naturally increased my T levels from 300 to 671.

Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT)

I temporarily experimented with Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) and loved it! But it is expensive to maintain. Here’s the TRT I used to boost my T levels to over 1000: https://growoffline.com/trt

I felt like a teenager! Lifting more. Working out more intensely. Hornier and harder erections. Faster weight loss and more muscle gain. Plus that brand helped with testing, cycling, etc. Once I am older, I will definitely use TRT again. The science is rapidly improving in this space with gene therapy and more improvements inbound yet this decade, so I will keep this post updated with my lastest testing!

Red Light Therapy

I learned about red light therapy from biohacker Ben Greenfield’s Men’s Health article, “I Put a Giant Red Light on My Balls to Triple My Testosterone Levels”.

  • Red Light Therapy: 20 minutes daily (infrared light from an LED source between 600 to 950 nm pointed directly at bare penis/testicles)

I also use my red light device for injuries. For example, red light therapy recently helped heal my pulled hamstring muscle much faster than normal.

Breathing & Stretching

Breathing

Meditative breathing helps your mind and body. The method I use increases your growth hormone production, fat burning, and testosterone levels. Another thing breathing helped me to do is slow down, enjoy sex longer, and delay orgasms. Due to the increase in metabolic efficiency and oxygen intake, you will also increase your endorphins and dopamine (the happy hormones).

Stretching

Stretching offers numerous benefits for both the body and mind. Physically, it improves flexibility, range of motion, and blood circulation, reducing the risk of injury and muscle soreness. It helps relieve tension and tightness, promoting relaxation and stress relief. Additionally, regular stretching can enhance posture, balance, and coordination. Mentally, stretching provides a moment of mindfulness and relaxation, allowing you to focus on your breath and connect with your body. Incorporating stretching into your daily routine can lead to improved physical performance, reduced stress levels, and enhanced overall well-being.

My Morning Routine

  • Set your alarm for 18 minutes before you normally wake up.
  • Start with the 10-minute meditative breathing Wim Hof Method® above.
  • Next, stretch for 5 minutes. Check out YouTube for stretching ideas. At a minimum include the following stretches:
    • Lying on your back, alternating each knee to chest (30 seconds each side).
    • Lying on your back, with feet tucked into your butt, bridge up hip pulses (10 reps in 30 seconds).
    • Lying on your back, grab your feet, and rock in happy baby position (60 seconds).
    • Cat cow yoga poses (60 seconds).
    • Downward dog yoga pose (60 seconds).
    • Alternating lunge (30 seconds).
  • Finish with hanging for 3 minutes. I straight arm, “dead hang” from a doorway pull-up bar for 3 sets of 1 minute (using a different grip each set: overhand grip, underhand grip, and mixed grip). Dead hangs are a simple yet effective bodyweight exercise targeting the upper body, with benefits including increased grip strength, spinal decompression, improved shoulder mobility, reduced shoulder pain, upper body stretching, and posture correction. 

Sleep

Your testosterone levels peak while sleeping and stay there until you wake up. Your daytime testosterone levels can drop up to 15% if you get under 5 hours of sleep.

Try to get 7.5 or 9 hours of sleep every night. This is completing five or six 90-minute sleep cycles (plus allowing for an additional 15 minutes to fall asleep). Learn more about sleep cycles, REM, and non-REM sleep at: https://www.sleepfoundation.org/stages-of-sleep 

Depending on when you need to wake up, use this free Sleep Calculator to calculate how to get five or six 90-minute sleep cycles per night.

My Bedtime Routine

I follow the 10, 3, 2, 1 rule before bedtime:

  • 10 hours before bedtime: Stop drinking caffeine.
  • 3 hours before bedtime: Don’t eat. Don’t drink alcohol. Try to limit alcohol consumption to 1 or 2 days max per week as it is a testosterone killer (cut it out entirely if possible).
  • 2 hours before bedtime: Stop all work. 
  • 1 hour before bedtime: Stop drinking water. Turn off all screens (phones, TVs, computers). Read a book, chat with a friend, relax.  

SLEEP HACK: We have pets and live in the city, so there are sounds at night I would wake up to, but this White Noise Machine was a game changer! I added almost an entire sleep cycle every night (I track my sleep with a watch fitness tracker)! I thought I slept well already, but I am surprisingly so much more well-rested with this white noise machine.

Testosterone Boosting Exercises

Exercise is another area people overcomplicate. At minimum get active for 30 minutes per day. That can be as simple as a 30-minute walk daily to build the habit of working out every day. Just like showering or brushing your teeth, exercise needs to become a habit (it takes on average 21 days to create a new habit – FYI here’s an amazing book on habits). 

Once you start to see results in your body, then you can take it to the next level (e.g. 30 minutes of walking, plus 30 minutes of weightlifting daily). I just don’t want you getting burnt out like so many people do early on. Set an easy habit for 21 days and then expand from there. 

When I was cutting weight I did a 30-minute bike ride first thing in the morning, then a 30-minute weightlifting session after work. Currently, I am focused on toning more than weight loss, so I walk 5 miles per day (I do this with my standing desk and standing desk treadmill) and lift weights for 45 minutes after work each evening. I follow a classic “PUSH PULL” workout plan using dumbbells and resistance bands.

For example, here’s my 7-day weightlifting breakdown (pushing: chest, shoulders, and triceps — pulling: back, biceps, and forearms):

  1. Push
  2. Pull
  3. Legs & Abs
  4. Rest
  5. Push
  6. Pull
  7. Legs & Abs

As for specific exercises to boost your testosterone, it is all about compound movements + lifting weights. This includes:

  • Pull-ups
  • Deadlifts
  • Squats
  • Bench press (or pushups)

There is no perfect solution, no silver bullet, no miracle drug… just 30+ minutes of ACTION per day and the compounding results of all these actions taken together!

PULL-UP HACK: If you aren’t good at pull-ups, focus on doing ONE at a time. When I was starting out, I did one pull-up, let go of the pull-up bar and rested, repeat. Continue this single pull-up/rest cycle until you can’t complete another one. Now I can do 20+ pull-ups in a row for each set, but this one-at-a-time hack really helps you get stronger faster.

WEIGHT LOSS HACK: If you want to lose fat, the ONLY way to do so is to practice the 30-30-30 method. Per The 4-Hour Body by Tim Ferriss, within 30 minutes of waking up, consume 30 grams of protein (e.g. one Premier Protein shake), and elevate your heart to 130+ BPM via cardio for 30 minutes (e.g. fast walk, jog, bike, or spinning). 

Best Workout Equipment

Here’s the simple, inexpensive home gym setup I use:

If you have space in your garage/home and want to avoid a gym membership fee/commute, this is what I got:

How Your Body Burns Energy (Calories) + Weight Loss Hack

If you want to lose fat, the ONLY way to do so is to practice the 30-30-30 method. Per The 4-Hour Body by Tim Ferriss, within 30 minutes of waking up, consume 30 grams of protein (e.g. one Premier Protein shake), and elevate your heart to 130+ BPM via cardio for 30 minutes (e.g. fast walk, jog, bike, or spinning). 

  1. First, it burns available sugar (glucose in your blood).
  2. Second, it burns glycogen (sugar stored in your liver and muscles).
  3. Third, if your body doesn’t have the first two available, it will burn muscle or fat.

After sleeping, your body is in a fasted state lacking sugar (glucose) in your blood. Combining protein intake with cardiovascular exercise in the morning maximizes your fat-burning potential by leveraging the body’s natural metabolic processes. Consuming protein helps preserve lean muscle mass, while cardiovascular exercise boosts calorie expenditure and fat burning!

Diet & Health

Your diet is crucial! Stick to a whole-food diet. Eliminate processed food and sugary drinks. Target consuming 1 gram of protein per pound of your goal body weight (e.g. 170 pounds = 170 grams of protein daily). 

My meals consist of a rotation of the following foods (any of these foods, just as long as I only eat my caloric deficit total of 1800 calories daily for my current weight loss goal):

  • Eggs
  • Fage greek yogurt
  • Bacon
  • Whole-fat cottage cheese
  • Fish
  • Chicken
  • Tuna
  • Ground beef
  • Liver
  • Ground pork
  • Ground Turkey
  • Steaks
  • Cauliflower rice
  • Broccolini
  • Spinach
  • Grass-fed butter
  • All types of berries
  • Apple
  • Papaya
  • Banana
  • Pineapple
  • Mango
  • Avocado
  • Premier Protein Powder
  • Raw milk
  • Raw honey
  • Lifeboost organic coffee
  • Salt
  • Olive oil
  • Water. 

Boring you may say?! GOOD! Because it works wonders for weight loss and muscle gain! And I am not a pain in the ass at restaurants forcing limitations on a group, I will splurge… but I know I have to make up for that splurge in the gym later!

Dieting is commonly overcomplicated online. To lose weight, you simply need to be in a caloric deficit each day. I see the best results eating 400-500 fewer calories than my required daily caloric intake based on my age, height, weight, gender, and activity level. Use this free Calorie Calculator.

TRACKING HACK: Tracking is crucial. Use a free mobile app like Lose It! to track your daily calories for a few weeks to understand what you are actually eating daily and to learn the total calories in various foods. After inputting my meals for a couple of weeks, I didn’t need to use the app anymore as I memorized my calorie count for my various types of food. 

Genetic Testing

After reading about genetic testing in a few books, I decided to use a DNA test to determine what foods were hurting and helping my weight loss and muscle growth journey!

I had no idea that genetic testing would help me determine my body’s nutrient deficiencies!

The genetic test I used shows you exactly how your genes operate, what areas need improvement, and a roadmap on how to optimize it: https://growoffline.com/genetic-testing

The DNA testing breakdown gave me deep insights into my body, highlighting neglected areas like physical performance, energy levels, mental clarity, stress management, and digestive function.

With a customized wellness plan based on my genetic needs, I now have more energy, focus, and confidence in all areas of life.

BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY… the genetic test told me exactly what my body needed… Bodies are all different and there are certain things that work and certain things that don’t work.

When you can find out exactly how your body operates, change your diet accordingly, and supplement the specific areas your body doesn’t operate properly in… it changes the game forever!

Best ED Treatments

Mental Training

Avoid being in your head about ED, as this will snowball into anxiety around not getting hard. Communicate with your partner beforehand about what you are working on so they can help you avoid this anxiety. If you can’t get hard, no worries… move onto making out, oral sex on them, toys, etc. Stay in the moment about the great feelings, fun, and potential love you have for your partner.

You Can NEVER Fail at Sex

Think what your teen boy self would be thinking, i.e. “Awesome, I’m naked with someone… YES!” Sex is always a WIN, no matter if you are hard or not. Train your brain, your penis is NORMAL when soft or hard… like your ears and nose are normal. Same difference!

END the negative self-talk and replace it with the in-the-moment thoughts of your partner’s body, sexual fun being had, and overall great physical feelings!

Pre-Sex Booster

Brazil nuts are high in selenium, which in turn can lead to stronger erections. 

  • Organic Brazil Nuts: Eat 3 nuts in the morning and 3 nuts in the evening daily.
  • If you know you are having sex today, eat your 6 daily nuts 3-4 hours before sex.

For a natural boost to my libido/sex drive, I take a specific oil blend supplement.

Grounding

Earthing (i.e. grounding) boosts the way your body functions, including decreased pain from inflammation and better blood flow. 

  • Grounding Mat: I sleep with a grounding mat under my back in bed every night. The first time I used it, I woke up with insane morning wood and have everyday since!

***Watch the UCLA study on earthing: https://youtu.be/44ddtR0XDVU?si=k_v8Ny2-IzOx7Nen (26:54 to 28:47)

Acoustic Wave Therapy

Studies have shown applying lower-intensity, acoustic pulses to the penis shaft increases blood flow and restores erections for optimal performance. Doctors use a much more powerful version of this device to break apart kidney stones. So the way I describe this device is a penis blood flow pipe cleaner lol.

I use mine twice per week and really see the benefits (increased blood flow, lasting longer sex, better orgasms, and I swear my penis has grown a half inch).

Kegel Exercises for Men

Kegel exercises strengthen your pelvic floor muscles. These exercises involve contracting and relaxing the muscles used to control urination. By regularly performing Kegel exercises, individuals will experience improved blood flow to the pelvic region, enhanced muscle tone, and increased control over ejaculation. For men experiencing ED, incorporating Kegel exercises into my daily routine has helped strengthen the muscles involved in achieving and maintaining an erection, which has led to improved sexual performance.

Pretend you are stopping your pee stream… that “flex” is your pelvic floor muscles doing a “kegel” or “kegeling”.

  • Kegel Exercises: Twice per day (morning and evening) perform 2 separate kegel exercises.
    • First, perform 100, 1-second sets of kegels.
    • Second, perform 10, 10-second hold sets of kegels (yes, hold that flex contraction for 10 seconds!)

REMINDER HACK: Use the “Kegel Reminder” text message subscription to be notified discreetly via text twice per day to perform your kegel exercises: https://growoffline.com/kegel-reminder 

Best Erectile Dysfunction Medication

As you may have assumed already, these natural erectile dysfunction treatments can take weeks to see consistent results. But with these new lifelong practices, I am now 10/10 happy in the bedroom and have resolved my ED issues! 

But that said, for immediate results, I did use generic ED meds the first few weeks of my recovery for a guaranteed erection before sex. And honestly, this really helped with my confidence that was wiped out by the many failed intimate encounters with women. Knowing I was going to perform helped me rebuild that habit that I was indeed capable of. Then all these natural treatments started showing results in a few weeks, which further improved my confidence!

Studies show you will eventually build a tolerance to ED medication. So you only want to use ED meds for a few weeks while you solve the underlying problem via the steps I’ve laid out for you so far. 

After testing a few generic erectile dysfunction medication providers online, this was my favorite and easiest to get (confirmed my Rx with their doctor online for free and shipped in a discrete envelope): https://growoffline.com/ed-meds 

This ED treatment medication works within ~3 hours and you can easily get erections with minimal stimulation for up to 24-36 hours total (great for weekends or vacations).

Porn Addiction

We all know our porn “triggers”. For me, it was when I was scrolling TikTok or Instagram and saw a beautiful woman… I would search her name +naked/nude/OnlyFans in Google and go down the wormhole that always ends with PMO (pornography/masturbation/orgasm). This is an instant dopamine hit that makes our caveman brain feel good… but only for a moment. The long-term repercussions of this terrible habit can be devastating. 

In the digital age, where connectivity is omnipresent and content flows freely online, one facet of modern life often lurks in the shadows: porn addiction. Despite its prevalence and profound impact on individuals and society, the subject remains shrouded in stigma and misunderstanding. In this section, we delve into the complex layers of porn addiction, aiming to shed light on its underlying mechanisms, its multifaceted impact, and strategies for recovery.

Understanding Porn Addictions

Porn addiction, also known as compulsive sexual behavior disorder, is a condition characterized by an individual’s inability to control their consumption of pornography despite negative consequences. Similar to other forms of addiction, it hijacks the brain’s reward system, leading to compulsive behaviors and less self-control in other areas of your life (drinking, working out, drugs, diet, etc.)

The accessibility and anonymity afforded by the internet has exponentially grown the prevalence of porn addiction. With just a few clicks, individuals can access a vast array of explicit content, often escalating into addictive patterns due to the brain’s allure of instant gratification.

Neuroscientific research shows that porn addiction shares similarities with substance addiction, involving the addiction to these instant pleasure dopamine hits on demand. Over time, individuals will develop tolerance, requiring increasingly extreme porn stimuli to experience the same level of satisfaction, perpetuating a cycle of escalation.

The ramifications of porn addiction extend far beyond individual psychology, permeating relationships, societal attitudes, and cultural norms. Intimate partnerships often bear the brunt of the fallout, as porn addiction can erode trust, intimacy, and communication, leading to feelings of betrayal and inadequacy.

Porn addiction affects attitudes toward sex, distorting perceptions of intimacy, consent, and body image. Your real-world partner is likely not a pornstar, nor would you want them to be doing the degrading porn acts you watch online. Exposure to unrealistic portrayals of sexuality fosters unrealistic expectations, which contributes to feelings of inadequacy and sexual dysfunction (e.g. erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, no orgasm/ejaculation, and decreased libido).

Recovery and Treatment

Recovery from porn addiction is a multi-faceted journey that often requires peer support (peer groups like this one), self-reflection, and behavioral changes. Recognizing the problem and seeking help are crucial first steps, so congrats on step #1.

Professional services such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness-based interventions, and addiction counseling can provide individuals with more elevated tools to manage triggers, cope with cravings, and cultivate healthier relationships with sexuality.

If you don’t want to seek professional help, cultivating a supportive environment and engaging in self-care practices are crucial. This involves setting boundaries around internet usage, fostering open communication with intimate partners, and pursuing activities that promote physical and emotional well-being.

Replace Porn Temptations / Triggers with a New Habit

Step #1

Prevent yourself from ever seeing porn again. I suggest the AI-powered porn blocker https://growoffline.com/canopy (use coupon code “GROWOFFLINE” for a 20% lifetime discount on monthly or annual packages).

Step #2

Surround yourself with like-minded people. Create an accountability group to chat with someone who is also struggling. Share what is working and what isn’t for temptations/triggers, and hold each other accountable on your 90-day no porn reset. Ask how they are coping. Share and grow together! Peer support was one of my main keys to success for stopping PMO.

Join our free community on Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/MenGrowOffline

Step #3

Replace porn temptations or triggers with a new habit. One group member did 10 pushups every time he got the urge for PMO (pornography/masturbation/orgasm). And to say the least, he is now jacked and a total fitness nut… GREAT NEW HABIT!

I personally treated it like a “swear jar” fine. If it was only a $1 fine, I would have never changed. So I made the “price of temptations” vey high to ensure quick results and the formation of a new habit! Every time I was tempted to watch porn, I set a rule for myself that I had to buy $36 worth of Bitcoin. Talk about a dopamine hit… my bad habit turned into $1000s in a Bitcoin savings account! Now I don’t watch porn and I have a new habit of dollar-cost-averaging a daily order of Bitcoin for $36. Win-win!

By using this peer group, educating yourself, setting new habits for your porn triggers, and pursuing a reboot/reset on your brain, you can work towards mitigating the impact of porn addiction and fostering healthier attitudes towards sexuality. 

How to Stop Watching Pornography

Resetting or “rebooting”, a term coined by recovering porn users, involves abstaining from pornography, masturbation, and orgasm (PMO) to recover from their negative effects. A supportive community is key to overcoming habitual porn use and rediscovering healthy sexuality through challenges and shared experiences.

Before embarking on a reset/reboot challenge, users must plan their porn temptation/trigger new habits and lean on their accountability partners within this group! There are various challenge durations touted, but I see the most success from a FULL 90-day reboot (i.e. if you break down and succumb to porn on X day, you restart on day #1).

While this 90-day challenge aims to facilitate a reset of your sexual brain and hormones, the effects of excessive porn use typically take longer. This is just your first goal of many you will achieve. But I am telling you, a cold turkey no porn, no masturbation for 90 days works! It is a true reset your mind and body needs. This reboot makes sex with your partner so much better! Plus it really helped in all areas of my life. Work, leisure, business, play… I was more present, focused, engaged, and productive. No PMO will improve every area of your life!

For 90 days you will abstain from both porn and masturbation. Your only orgasms allowed are through sexual activity with a partner.

This 90-day reset is the key first step in your journey toward overcoming porn addiction, reclaiming a healthy sexuality, and helping solve your erection issues! Use your fellow peers in this accountability community as a support system to ensure you persevere to a fulfilling, porn-free life.
