A minimum of four is a good start. One first thing in the morning, another last thing in bed and then the others as you can during the day.
If you have a day at home with nothing to do, double it, eight edges minimum.
Flip a coin on Christmas day, heads you can cum, tails it’s no touch for three days then cum on New Years as you planned.
See how that works for you and if it’s going well then sure, August… sounds good to me!
