    I'll try to keep it short. I fantasized every night since puberty, like every single night. Now I'm having trouble sleeping if I do not fantasize. And it grows with the nofap count, first it took me half an hour to fall asleep, now 2 hours and after day 60 I'm awake atleast 4 hours after going to bed. If I do fantasise it ruins my thinking, I get obsessed over women and turn back to watching explicit content. I think I get back to my normal mentally ill self if I abstain from fantasising. It's 4 hours of sleep loss that reflects the next morning. Should I get myself tired enough to fall asleep quick or go to a doctor. Now I've realized that all this fantasizing has led to me objectifying, not being able to connect with females, should I go to a doctor, or should I get myself tired enough to sleep quick, Please help.

    That's it. You go to sleep with too much energy. Exercise, or reading. I read until my vision is blurred. I don't resent the late hours awake if I'm using it to a productive thing. Exercise a few hours before sleep, and don't nap during the day you should be fine.

    You're welcome.

    Calm app on cell phone. Sleep sounds are good background noise every night. If my mind is really active I listen to the sleep stories. They’re peaceful and boring so you can focus on them while falling asleep. If you find yourself worrying or fantasizing you just pay attention to the story again. Next thing you know you’re waking up in the morning.

    Sleep deprivation releases dopamine in the brain.

    Your brain is playing this trick to get its dopamine, because it is not getting it from the high of PMO. Stay strong my brother, it will subside. Get rid of the fantazising.

    Stay offline for at least two hours before you're planning to go to bed. Even television could be too much of a distraction, so try and listen to relaxing music and read a book instead.

    Try and exercise every evening, even if it's just walking for an hour.
