How do I reset the counter on a button in android studio.

My code is-----

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {

    private FactBook mFactBook = new FactBook();
    private ArrayList<String> PreviousFacts = new ArrayList<>();
    public int ForwardIndexValue = 0;

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.content_main);

        final TextView FunFact = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.funFact);
        final Button NextButton = (Button) findViewById(R.id.nextBtn);
        final Button BackButton = (Button) findViewById(R.id.backBtn);

        NextButton.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
            @Override
            public void onClick(View v) {
                String AnotherFunFact = mFactBook.getFunFact();
                FunFact.setText(AnotherFunFact);
                PreviousFacts.add(AnotherFunFact);
                ForwardIndexValue++;

            }
        });

        BackButton.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
            @Override
            public void onClick(View v) {
                if (ForwardIndexValue > 0){
                    ForwardIndexValue--;
                    String HistoryFunFact = PreviousFacts.get(ForwardIndexValue);
                    FunFact.setText(HistoryFunFact);
                }
                else {
                    FunFact.setText("Click Show Next Fun Fact to read more interesting facts about us");

                }

            }

        });

    }
}

Set it to zero inside the onCreate method. Every time it is created it will be set to zero

       super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
       setContentView(R.layout.content_main);
       public int ForwardIndexValue = 0;
