    Hello!

    I have been struggling with anhedonia (Can't feel joy for anything) for the last two years. I have almost tried everything, for example: omega 3, choline, magnesium, exercise. Nothing have worked against the anhedonia.

    I'm just 36 days in but I'm seeing a lot of progress already. Yesterday I watched a clip of my favorite comedian and for the first time in two years+ I laughed so hard from watching him on youtube, before nofap I did not find his jokes funny (over the two years of anhedonia). For me, this is a hugh progress and I'm optimistic about seeing more benefits.

    The first 20-25 days were really hard and I experienced a lot of flatline symptoms, like depression, very low motivation etc. With the benefits I have experienced, I'm going to go through the flatline phases.

    If anyone experience anhedonia, I can really recommend to try NoFap for atleast 90 days and see if you see any progress.

    Thanks for this community!

    I am that kind of person who always find something positive no matter how shitty your situation in life can be at times.
    Never heard of your "condition" in my life, but it sounds awful.
    However, it's not that bad. That shit has helped you deal with the flatline and depression. You have already experienced hell so a week or two of flatline won't do you much harm! :)

    I am glad you are seeing progress.

    Similar things happens to many people when doing NoPMO. In my case, tears appear. They are a sign of a real progress.
    When watching porn I don't cry, I am just feeling anxious, depressed, sad, and guilty.... but there are no tears. It's like I am incapable of crying.

    Keep up with abstaining until your brain rewires!

    I had sex day 32, but it did not feel like I relapsed :)

    Yeah, one of the many benefits with NoFap, is that my feelings are starting to come back. I almost forgot how to feel anything anymore. I will never use porn and never masturbate again.

    Thank you for replying my friend. Have a great journey :)

    That's great. I just relapsed after going a while without doing so. I'm feeling kind of down, but this was a motivating post. Thanks for taking the time, and I hope it keeps going well!
