    Hi. This is my 3rd nofap try. My last nofap lasted for 62 days. I broke it because I couldn't bare my sexual urges.

    Now in my current nofap run, I'm on 42 days streak. I'm feeling very low, depressed, angry, and most importantly feeling bad memories poop up from way way in the past.

    Those symptoms were similar to my last nofap. Surprisingly they disappeared after returning to PMO.
    Also I was feeling like sh*t 1 hour ago and I accidentally found a stash of porn hidden in my phone I deleted them right away. By only noticing the thumbnails I felt so great, horny and my penis felt like a V8 getting revved. Although I'm having zero lipidos and erections in my current flatline.

    So lastly are my symptoms normal?

  2. Dude, your symptoms are sooo normal. So many of us are going through what you are right now. And we find comfort in reading about your experience, I know I do. And I hope you find it supportive to read about our experiences, and I think you'll find it therapeutic to continue to post your own.

    Yeah, that's just a part of being a man fighting a porn addiction. Having those urges is a love-hate relationship when you're in no PMO. I love getting a hard-on and getting aroused. But right now, I have to fight that. And I'm happy to do it. Recognize it for what it is when it jumps up at you, and it seems you have. Damn I was impressed when you said that you deleted that stash off of your phone as soon as you found it. Nothing but respect.

    Seriously, bad memories from the past. That's a killer. Flatline seems to hit a lot of us more mentally and emotionally than it does physically. You're on 42 days, and you've made it to 62 days. You're awesome, dude. Fight past this! And I know that sounds trite when you're in the weeds of your flatline. But please, buckle down and ride it out.

    Thanks Jag. I'm very relieved knowing that it's the norm for nofappers. I've started to think that I'm having some mental emergency.
