    Got a relapse yesterday so I am resetting my counter (had some meaningless one-night stand). I must go back to my game and finish the month with only this setback.

    The rest of you guys keep going, because you all are BADASS!!!

    Hey All,

    I joined the NoFap community just few days ago, wasn't aware of this challenge. But better late than none, I am in for no lusting no masturbation and no orgasm for the rest of the month.

    Hey guys, I opted in for this challenge but I masturbated in an unconscious way at night while at bed. I am writing my issue below and please help me with some words of advice , can this be considered as a relapse , and how should I deal with this situation in future, it is really pissing me off :

    Here is my issue:
    I am going through a challenge and I need some help, so here is the situation. Sometimes when I go to bed at night lets say I go to bed at 11pm and I have absolutely no intention of acting out at all, I do my before bed time prayers and meditation and lay down. Now almost when I become unconscious ( Not deep sleep ) like 45 minutes after I go to bed, I get some weird flashbacks and sexual thoughts which I can not stop even though I am not fully unconscious ( I am not in deep sleep mode ) and the flashbacks are so intense that sometimes I even utter some foul language along with it like F word and such and I fantasize naming some individuals that might have been a trigger for me in past, and undauntedly it makes me masturbate. Now I can not label it as wet dream, because I do feel the orgasm and I do sense my surrounding that I am at bed and it is night time and such, but it is just as if the rational part of my brain gets compromised which is not allowing me to stop the masturbation piece of it. Now once this happens I wake up and get extremely depressed and mark it off as a relapse. And then the next morning I feel very annoyed as why this happens, so much so that the anxiety and depression lead me to turn back to my addiction in real mode during day time by watching sexual visuals and masturbating. I am very helpless, how can I deal with it. Shouldn't I sleep at all to be awake and defend myself against it. What else can I do ?
    I really need some help in this case, is there anyone else who is struggling with this issue. I might open up a new thread for this issue as it is always a destroyer of my recovery arsenal.

    I agree, finish the month out strong and keep going. Even though you reset you probably still had a lot of clean days, more than you would have before so progress is being made. All is not lost, just don't give up.

    Thought I'd follow up on this. I made it. Only edged (P) once and was like "what am I doing?" Anyway I love how women are so much more beautiful when you are not doing PM. I might start again for May.
