    Guys, when I used to masturbate once a day daily or more, I literally had no dreams or if I remember correctly, I rarely had dreams. Now I have dreams almost daily. Any insights into dream connection to health? It's definitely a plus point but would appreciate some logic or connection to neuroscience!

    Fapping affects our ability to dream cuz it damages part of our brain.

    That's pretty interesting actually, I'm going to keep an eye on it. Because I just don't remember dreams at all, it is so rare that I have or remember dreams and I will be very interested to know if they increase shortly with some nofap success.

    A little googling indicated that there is a school of thought that dreams are often powered through the same channels that pleasure and reward are felt. So it would stand that if you are masturbating and giving false pleasure the brain does not have a need for the dream to inject some pleasure for you. If you masturbate before sleep, the brain may identify fairly strong dopamine levels already being present and will not commence a dream state..... I'm no doctor of course, but it seems reasonable.

    I tell you guys when I was heavily PMOing before I rarely had dreams but when I got serious with my nofap, dreams went a coming back healing my brain and its ability to dream.
