    I don't know for sure if you can call it addiction to dopamine (and I don't think it matters) but I know for personal experience that hits of dopamine from videogames, watching anime or series, PMO, wasting time watching Facebook, instagram or YouTube, etc, makes you want more hits like that or bigger, and at the same time makes you feel like real life is less attractive, or even boring, because your brain already have a better, faster and a lot easier to get dopamine source.. basically, making you half zombie lol.

    Again personal experience, since the day I quit Facebook, Netflix and videogames not only I was able to control myself to not PMO, but also replaced that sources of dopamine that kill your brain cells with sources of dopamine that makes you grow. Making exercise, talking with friends and family, studying, meditating, etc. Like you said, dopamine it's supposed to be motivation ¿for what? For doing stuff that's actually good for you, that's when dopamine is healthy. If your dopamine source is videogames or anime, don't lie to yourself, it is not healthy at all.

    Today i felt sad, particularly invaluable because i proposed a friend to meet and he implicitly refused. That feeling of hopeless, and that nothing will change is an illusion. These feelings plus stress are my main reasons for PMOing, i use it to escape discomfort.
    What you said about social media and anime and videgames is true. Too much use of these things makes me feel tired and bored.
    I rarely use facebook, and i don't play too much games, but i watch a lot of anime. Let's take anime for example, too much anime is bad no dopt, but a little bit of it doesn't hurt, especially if it helps forgetting about an urge.
    I agree, too much internet consumption is bad and exhausted. Unfortunately i can't quit internet, because it is simply my work.
    I'll start doing one day internet detox. This is a good idea :)
    By the way i surpassed today's urge because of a beautiful song.

    There it is!! Double digit!! 10 days free of PMO!
    I think I might have only gotten a 10 days streak only once or twice since I started NoFap in March.
    Can you imagine how many times I have relapsed...? But that is all in the past and I don't care about the past!
    Even though it is not much, I am still proud of the two digits!
    Next milestone: 2 weeks! Lets gooo! :)

    Day 88 28 days without a drink.
    I had a strange compelling urge to shoot my load all day yesterday but thankfully didn't though it was very close. The same thing happens to me when I am on a fitness drive or abstaining. I could be on a fitness regime eating all the right foods than our of nowhere I feel the urge to binge on junk food. This happens even when I have lots of good food in the house and I have to go out and get the junk food. I just seem to have a destructive urge to undo all the good work I have done at the final hurdle.What the root of it all is I have no idea, but I would love to find out.

    Hey, i think it is common and natural in a way. It is like when you go for long run. The last 1km sometimes is mentally unbearable. Keep the fight up man, it is a damn mental only thing!
