    On day 30 of hardmode (no porn, no sex, no masturbation), while asleep overnight I experienced a wet dream. Sparing the details, the dream that triggered it consisted of my having sex with an unknown woman-- I say unknown because I didn't recognize her from anywhere. Additionally, I don't recall any stimulus in the day or days prior to this event which might have acted as a trigger. I didn't watch any sensual movies or do any web browsing, there was no fantasizing, nor anything sexually provocative. I've had this happen in the past, but that was while trying to abstain yet exposing myself to sensual media.

    Anyhow, the day after the nocturnal emission (NE) I felt drained, not quite as bad as PMO but still weak and fatigued. Important to mention is that the following day I had a strong desire for porn/sex (chaser effect). Although some men on this forum report going 180 days or more without a NE, I am apparently not in that camp. Friends, please beware that you may have a wet dream and it may put you into a temporary feeling of relapse-like symptoms. Be prepared for the dreaded "chaser effect" following a NE. Keep your guard up and hold on.

    I feel you brother! This happend to me now! I made 7 days without anything sexual, not even a picture, and I didnt touch myself and I was able to control my sexaul thoughts! But on the 8th day, I had a wet dream! I dreamed that I opened my instagram and saw hot pictures with a girl(i didnt do it since my last pmo) and I woke up having an orgasm and ejaculating! Man I WAS SO SCARED! it never happend to me before, but i think its a sign of recovery and that the brain its detoxating itsel from all of the porn! Anyway, I fell a little dissapointment cause until this dream everything was perfect, but I dont think its that bad! Try to do a lot of exercise, eat healthy and take vitamin complex to recover very fast!

    On my last long streak (48 days) I had my first NE of my life on day 11, then another around day 39, almost a month apart. The first time was very thin and watery, the second time was like an explosion. Both times afterward it made me feel very sluggish, weak, and tired. And the chaser effect definitely kicked in for about two days following each NE. I didn’t recall any triggers either prior to having them. Frankly I think that certain people will invariably get them at specific intervals, at least in the beginning of a reboot, while others may experience them less frequently or not at all. I personally don’t find it to be a problem aside from the chaser effect, which you definitely have to keep your guard up for. It can definitely cause a potential relapse if you don’t know what to expect...
