    Hey Fapstonauts
    have you guys found that when quitting that your emotions run haywire, if so how do you keep them in check, im finding that this is messing up my normal life with feelings of depression, loneliness and such, any help would be nice and ways to avoid the highs and lows too.

    Fake it till you make it man. Keeping your emotions in check requires self-control just like NoFap. Feeling sad is normal, and it happens, just stay as positive as you can and put a smile on your face.

    Try finding a group of people to hang with. Being around others helps act as emotion regulators on a subconscious level. Talk to strangers, find a hobby, etc.

    I totally agree with you when I'm not PMO or edging my emotions are high and low, and I'm a mess! Im get mad and angry, heightened senses, i actually feel more alive, but i don't have that comforting reward seeking feeling i typically would when i know i would/could go home and edge till i O.

    Emotions are normal. Work with them. I have had to look deep into why I was feeling depressed. Now I am working out some issues and feeling even better.
    Find someone to talk things over or just journal them to your self. It helps.

    The difficult emotions that lead me to relapse are not difficult at all in retrospect, the inner torment and emotions I feel after polluting my consciousness with porn is a hellfire I wish on no man. I feel like dying right now, just from the energy of the porn I absorbed. It wasn't some atrocious fetish like snuff or rape or anything. But the hellish dehumanizing energy is there regardless. I'm very sensitive to subtle things and negative energies.

    Anyways ya my soul is on fire right now. Will get better in the coming weeks. I'm seeing a really open-minded counselor in the coming weeks because I need some more help than I am able to give myself apparently.

    You think your life is difficult and full of emotional turmoil? So do I alot of the time. But think about people in third world countries who struggle to get enough water or food on a daily basis just to survive and feed their families. Who wear hand me down clothing shipped over from surplus at thrift stores in the US. How do you think the 3 legged dog in my avatar is doing in his existence?

    Hi its the wiseman

    sounds like your going through a withdrawal your emotions feel like this because your brain is use to you jerking off and releasing all those different hormones , because you haven't been doing that your brain and emotions are all over the place understand that this is a step in bettering yourself for things to get better sometimes they get worse your mind is going to balance its self out just stay positive and remember why your doing this

    stay strong my friend
