Day 3, 4 and 5
Day 2 completed.
the past few days, man, damn. I've been struggling to feel like I'm on track with things in my life, I've been depressed, anxious... jeez. But I haven't been going to the gym and my sleep / alcohol intake has been off too, so I'm going to blame that, and assume that if I weren't on nofap it'd be even worse. I'm just glad I didn't do anything dumb. Today: gym, only one or two drinks, bed by 10pm. And definitely no PMO!!!
I feel bored and unmotivated all the time. I don't know what to do. I'm avoiding as many addictive behaviours as possible and more often than not I'm just sitting down doing nothing. what do I do to cure this boredom? It's like I'm never really happy. I practiced some guitar but that became boring too.
If it,s not ever like that, I would just listen to music and go to the natur and under the sun. If it is ever like this I would search some goals or a meaning in life.
all the best friend.
Day 62. In terms of my libido returning, I've had too many false dawns to be hopeful. Though my head is a lot clearer I don't feel particularly driven to do other things in life as much as I thought I would. I'm scared I'm getting more moody as a result of none Faping for so long as well.
My libido has fallen off after last time. I know it will return so that does not stress me - I just aknowledge this and move on, as you all should do with any issues that come from recovery.
My man, it sounds like me before! When you have had a lot of addictive behaviors that spiked your dopamine so high, it is natural that now that you stopped them you feel like that. This is temporary, while your dopamine receptors return to normal! After that normal things will feel pleasurable again. Not sure how familiar you are with the science of addiction, but long story short is - Addictive behavior - alcohol, drugs, PMO and whatever == constant high dopamine attacks on the brain. Brain develops more receptors for the high dopamine intake. Then you need more dopamine to feel the same high/good feeling == more addictive behavior. When you stop - suddenly no dopamine and a lot of receptors == bad time. Brain then starts removing these receptors because they are not needed. It takes time of course! Takes months! Don't stress and keep going and you will see it gets much better, normal life things will make you feel good again! It's all a part of the journey! good thing is - the brain and the mind are flexible and can change in both directions!
Have a great day everyone!
