SSD and reformatting?

Hello. I am wanting to get an SSD for my computer but I was wondering something. I personally like to erase and reformat my system drive every couple of months to start with a fresh Windows install. If I get an SSD for my system drive will I still be able to do this or will I be damaging the drive?

Also, I have read that I should align the ssd and also to a secure erase before I install Windows. Could someone link a guide on how to do this? Thanks.

    Erasing/writing an SSD will wear it down, but the drive will outlast the life your computer or the next generation SSDs, whatever comes first.
