Hi Guys, I'm new to the forum. Please check my latest post: https://forum.nofap.com/index.php?threads/reseting-cause-im-bored-aware-of-the-shame.272431/ Is it normal and do other people face the same issue, where after masturbation they feel more empty and shame and a greater void? It is because the dopamine is depleted. This feeling of emptiness is a feeling in itself, so is the post-masturbation shame an addiction to feel like you 'need to get your act together'? What are the tips of just getting your act together and sticking with it? Why do we need to put our finger on top of the candle fire to feel that it's hot, don't we already know that from the first experience? Is this an addiction of self-sabotage? Please help. Where's the mental illness section in this forum?
