  1. You guys are superstars to me. I am looking here going dang this is a good group of folks to have. To push into the 100 club. I’m ready for the challenges.
     
  2. Wow. It’s cool reading my past post. Update ... I’m +200 days.

    last week I had a erotic dream about bill and Hillary Clinton. I think my subconscious created a dream with a comedian’s stand up routine.

    withdrawals yes they still happen.
    I don’t abstain from sex with real people that doesn’t make any sense to me. At least I don’t see the reason for it.

    I have struggled to achieve financial composure. I have seen my pmo addiction is gone but it has migrated to other compulsive habits. I am attacking the spending piece. It’s made me much more aware and I can make my decisions better.

    I’m 12 months now and my motivation is for shit. This definitely a part of PAWS.. I wonder how long it will last. I am already getting looks at work because I just don’t care about what I do anymore.

    damn this is the most informative thread yet. I can relate so much to it because our synptoms are very similar.


    Im at day 60. Ever since the beginning , no motivation at all. My energy has improved , but cognitive impairment is still there. Weak knees have improved. I started having acne on my face. I hate that Ive completely lost all my muscles . My skin is pretty fragile like if I scratch it itll burn.


    Anyway Im not giving up! One thing I do different is Im on a raw primal diet hopefully to heal the body faster!

    Same for me, I came to this period of PAWS.. since I was a heavy fapper that did it for like 11-12years.. Its been like a year and half since practicing nofap hard mode. Though its been good, like so good no complain. My life has gone better since then... with no worries, no brain fogs, or a state where I was anxious for anyone not to see what I was doing... I have good energy like even if I sleep 5-6 hours.. Maybe the reason I have PAWS is because I got away from what I promised to myself in the beginning of NOFAP.. Things like daily exercises, meditation, reading, some sort of social activities.. Surely today will make plan again and format it in a way that wont push me away but make me stick to it..

    Are you doing anything extra or created new habits, like maybe reading or meditations? I'm still in PAWS and cant find a way to get out of this

    Usually paws is common for ex heavy fappers, those who started at early age and kept doing it until practicing NOFAP.
    Common symptoms include:
    • Irritability, aggression or hostility
    • Depression, sadness, and anxiety
    • Mood swings with severe highs and lows
    • Low energy
    • Fatigue or insomnia
    • Thought fog
    • Limited ability to focus
    • Lack of interest in sex
    • Chronic pain

    I can attest to everything people say here. Extreme mood swings, aggression, depression, anxiety.

    However, I'm starting to get more and more happy periods. My last few streaks have been 130, 108, 30, and current is 61. I have no urge to relapse anymore, the only times I've relapsed is by accidentally dangling porn in front of my nose.
