    I've been taking antidepressants for approximately two years for lessening the withdrawal symptoms. I have realized that antidepressants kind of like mess up my PMO progress because I hardly have wet dreams when I am on the antidepressants, but whenever I get off them I have plenty of wet dreams. I have decided to stop taking them because what is the point of doing PMO if you are not going to fully benefit from it. I want to feel the withdrawal symptoms, the flatline, the depression, brain fog and everything and let my body recover the way it is supposed to. Whilst taking the antidepressants I realized that I was basically messing up with my PMO progress. I want to have the wet dreams because they are a good sign that my body is healing. Please support me guys. Thank you

    Hey, that's a really brave decision to step away from taking antidepressants in order to help with your recovery. I am no expert on this topic but I definitely believe that it is better to do recovery the hard way to get the greatest benefits further down the line. Good luck with your journey and DM if you want a chat anytime :)

    Yeah mate, I don't know if this is a luxury available to you but I found counselling really helpful to figuring out what beliefs lead to unhappiness and contribute to my addiction. 12 steps groups are also another option.

    Just keep in mind that depression is real and you're definitely making a trade-off by coming off the antidepressants. Maybe you'll get your wet dreams back. Maybe you won't. But don't be surprised when your depression comes roaring back.
