    I am a changed man after these 77 days. I feel terrible today. I know a lot of people say that wet dreams don't count as a relapse. But, this was different, hear me out, it was morning and I was asleep dreaming about fucking a supermodel. Normally, I have so much control over myself, but I was in a state where I can't control myself. I ejaculated after 77 days and as it happened in my undies it felt like my dick is going to explode with all the semen accumulated over time. Immediately, I woke up realizing I was humping my bed in the sleep. Although it happened just a few minutes before I woke up coz of pain, there was no sign of orgasm after I woke up. It would have been awesome if I had gone past the 90-day mark without ejaculating even once. I wanted to know your thoughts on what happened with me and what should I make of it, should I restart the counter or keep going without thinking about it too much??
    It was like my body wanted that orgasm so badly, and I won't fap, my brain realized the only way to get it is in the sleep, and it pushed my body through this. Kinda like brain playing tricks on me.

  2. This is not a reset. You can't make a conscious decision to have a wet dream, so you're good. Please don't be so hard on yourself for something that was involuntary.

    I myself have never had a wet dream in my life, but it's because I masturbated way too much when I was younger. I'm sure my first one is coming now that I'm in reboot, but again, a nocturnal emission is NOT a reset.

    You're very close to the 90 day mark. Keep it up!!! :)

    Doesnt count at all to me, consider it a biological response to making it to 77 days. That sounds like a natural win to me. Keep going to 90, you did not lose even one bit

    Thank you for your support and ecouragement. Just want to update you guys, again, today morning I had a wet dream even though I forced myself to sleep on my back and not on my belly (I read there are high chances of sleep ejaculation when sleeping on belly). Back to back wet dreams, this is something that has never happened to me before. It makes me feel disappointed.

    Day 77 and Day 78 two continues ejaculations in sleep. :(

  7. Not a reset. I had a wet dream on day 78. Then things went back to normal. It's just a biological mechanism, don't think too much of it. It's like sneezing when your nose itches, or crying when you cut onions.

    I will add that you need to be very careful for the next week because you might get aroused easier because of chaser effect. Avoid any triggers and you should be fine.

    Hey man‍♂️..

    Wet dreams has NO side effects whatsoever and will not take away any of the obtained nofap benefits..

    think of it as a small reward during your journey
     
  11. I've only had one wet dream in my entire life and it took 78 days of nofap.

    I got my very first wet dream a few days ago on day 22 without MO and day 18 without PMO. I had the same worry as you do although I knew that it was involuntary and natural.

    I don't want it to happen again because I want every bit of my sex drive to be preserved. I know that if I repeat the intention of abstaining from sex IRL, that commitment will reflect in my dreams just like it did for avoiding PM. Lucid dreaming is also a great tool to take control of what happens while you sleep, and I'm learning that skill as well.
