    okay so i'm fed up with setting stupid goals for myself that are unattainable so i thought i'd post a thread to ask people what the best amount of time to aim not to cut is.
    then maybe we could start another thread named "GOAL: no SH til..."
    i went a month and 4 days recently but it was so hard!

    i think maybe 3 weeks would be good..
    what does everyone else think?

    I just find taking it one day at a time works. You never know what each day will bring, so can never know how you will feel.

    You have to learn to crawl before you can walk. Take babysteps at first and keep building up the amount of time, until you can be SH-free for a long period of time.

    If you found just over a month really tough, 3 weeks isn't that much shorter. I'd say try a day, then 3 days, then 5 days and so on. That's what I try and do.

    both really good points
    ...i was just thinking it might be nice for everyone to try and reach a goal together... but now i think about it, everyone's different and it's probably not the best of ideas
    sorry :unsure:
