A very weird and problematic benefit of masturbation

    This might sound strange but here goes nothing:

    The other day, after no PMO for 7 days, I drove to work. It was easy to get distracted, something that NoFap does to me. Driving was very disorienting and I almost got hit by another car at one point.

    A day later, I PMO'd and went for a similar drive the next day. I was back to my hyper-alert Initial D level of driving skill and there was thereby no danger at all.

    This has happened every single time I go on a NoFap streak and then relapse.

    This is the single greatest obstacle that has me bouncing between doing NoFap and PMOing once every few days or so. And as someone who drives a lot, this is kind of a big deal. I basically need to choose between the benefits of NoFap and being a safe driver. What should I do?

    tl;dr - NoFap makes me drive worse despite all the other benefits. What do?

    You are still in the early phase of rebooting. Longer than a week you will be able to drive better. First week is awful. So with pmo your brain is still at its present state where you always able to drive that way.

    If NoFap makes you drive worse and driving is important for you I think you should stop NoFap

    I don't think it's the NoFap itself making you drive worse, but the fact that you're craving to go back to it, which keeps you distracted from what you're doing. No different than an addict being "phased out" early in his recovery.

    It sounds very strange! o_O It has never happened to me.

    This is a great reply. See, that's the entire problem: NoFap will bring great benefit to me but it will create a long period of potential danger.

    What about playing some music, radio or podcast that you like? Could help you to kill the urges

    Until you figure this out, use public transportation and stay off the wheel please. You could be a danger to others.

    See, if I don't do NoFap then the problem doesn't exist. Why would I just avoid driving altogether? That makes no sense.

    EDIT: Nevermind just read your journal thread thing. You sound mentally disturbed.

  10. I think this is all in your head. This is like saying I’m better at walking after I jack off. It sounds like you’re just anxious because you’re not used to life without pmo yet.

    Mild correction: it actually might be that I'm too relaxed! I'm used to being jittery all the time so when I'm sedated it's kind of alien to me.

    Looks like hard mode is not for you, but you can at least go easy mode meaning porn free, but can still masturbate and orgasm. The most important thing is to not have porn thoughts such as images or videos even fantasizing them including creating your own. Hope it helps. Good luck bud.

    It gets worse before it gets better.
    You have to endure the transitional period otherwise continue wasting away your vital energy for the rest of your life
