Thought I’d make this post because there’s too many “relapsed on day 1 again “ posts on here and not enough information which is important for people who are dedicated to beating their addiction on high streaks. Flatline is a made up word and I don’t know why we’ve believed into using it. Let me explain, after two weeks of quitting PMO the initial withdrawal effects diminish. After this we feel energetic, less brain fog, we get these superpowers. Somewhere down the line these superpowers briefly disappear and we get depressed, anxiety, no motivation, trouble sleeping. These are called PAWS and they are very real! You will also get PAWS if you quit an alcohol, heroin, cocaine addiction after the initial withdrawals are over. Most people who quit addictions cold turkey experience PAWS or what we have been calling “flatlines” for 6 MONTHS to 2 YEARS. You will be fine one day and then next you’ll feel like absolute shit, it’s really hard but you’ve just got to hang in there. This should usually last about a week or two weeks and then you’ll be feeling good again. And then out of nowhere you’ll get withdrawal symptoms again! Like I said, if you have a serious porn addiction like me (I’ve been fapping 10+ years) this will happen to you for up to 2 years! The whole 90 day thing we’ve been fed into is rubbish, this is a very hard, bumpy road, if you are actually an addict expect to be battling this for the next 2 YEARS, (the PAWS get less and less as time goes on and eventually you’re okay) thought I’d share this because people need to know what they’re getting into. Please research PAWS.
