If you have a success story you’d like to share, I’d still love to hear from you: brian (at) rebootblueprint (dot) com


Do you have an inspiring reboot success story to tell and a talent for putting it into words?

To celebrate 2 years since starting the website Reboot Blueprint, I’m giving away $175 in Amazon Gift Cards to the best reboot success stories.

Entry Deadline:  September 15th, 2015

amazon gift card


Entries should be at least 800 words (no upper limit – long-form is fine if you need it).

Email your entry to brian (at)  (NOTE: entries can be “anonymous” or a pen name, but I need your email to send the gift card).

Some example essay titles to get you thinking:

“My reboot success story”

“How my life has changed since I quit porn”

“The 5 things that really helped me get through my reboot”

“Why some reboots fail and why mine succeeded”

“10 reasons my reboot was a success”

Winning entries should be…

Motivational and inspiring

Have useful and helpful information

-Checked for spelling and grammar

-Not copy/pasted from elsewhere (I’ll check!)

-Honest, REAL stories, with real struggles. No need to gloss over the hard parts. People want to read that too.

I will publish all entries that I feel are worthwhile (not only the winners). Entrants agree that their work may be published on   (Please note only the winners will be compensated)

Why am I doing this?

I want to inspire writers to write some amazing, helpful, motivating content for all the guys that are struggling with their reboot.  And while there’s plenty of guys out there writing their stories for free, I hope the prizes will motivate some of you to go above and beyond.

Best of luck, and I hope to read some great entries!  🙂

    I had struggled with porn addiction at 18 to 22 years old i want it to fix my porn addiction and live a healthy lifestyle.

  2. Can such a gift card be used on all amazon branches, or only on the US amazon?
    (I don’t live in the US)

    • Hi Giuliano,
      I think I can purchase the card from the Amazon store of the winner’s country. I’m sure we’ll be able to figure it out. Worst case scenario: paypal 😉
