Dreams of pornography

Discussion in 'Rebooting - Porn Addiction Recovery' started by Chris Aurelius Denver, Sep 23, 2019.

  1. Goodmorning dear Reader,

    There is something I could use your help with. I've had vivid dreams my entire life, this is not new to me. But when I'm on NoFap, and especially when I'm on a longer streak, these dreams often become porn or sex oriented.

    This causes feelings of shame, not as much as looking at pornography in real life, but still. It feels like I relapsed, which I did not do, because it was just a dream.

    My question is if any of you have had this before, and if so, how you managed to stop it or managed to cope with it.

    Thank you all in advance for your answers.

    Best regards,

    Chris A. Denver

    Most people have them. Nothing you can do about it. Don't think about them to much and keep moving forward.

    I heard some people say P dreams are even a sign of recovery: your subconscious processes those cravings and memories to better let them go.

    What you can do is analyse your dreams from an outaide perspective and ask yourself what they mean and if there are any signs of progress (nofap dreams and relapses avoidance dreams rather than PMO dreams for example).

  3. Thank you for the advice.
    Yeah I was expecting they couldn't be stopped already, there's no stopping our subconscious I guess.

    The idea that they're a sign of recovery is a good one, that will help me cope with them, so thank you again!

    Normal withdrawal symptom similar to any other addiction... don't worry they will reduce and eventually pass as your brain and body returns to 'normal'.
