    Hello everyone,

    Im 27 years old and I've been addicted to porn since I was 14. I've tried many times to start NoFap and never been able to pass one week. I also suffer of depression, anxiety and lonliness.

    But now I am close to reaching my first two weeks of NoFap. I was feeling really well during the first week of abstinence :

    - Better energy;
    - My depression is starting to be bearable;
    - No more brain fog(thanks god);
    - Feeling very active and awake;
    - A little feeling of hope (something I really needed so much).

    But now that Im close to my first two weeks, I'm starting to feel really bad. This feeling is really weird, so weird that I dont even know how describe it. I feel like empty, sad, like nothing makes sens... I feel weak and a bit angry. I feel like something is missing but I can't say what it is (surely not PMO).

    Did any of you guys feel the same thing during your abstinence ? I really need to know if this is normal or not please help ! Could you give me some advices please ?

    Sorry if my english isn't very good.

    It's probably your brain trying to heal itself and grow healthier.

    Imagine you switched suddenly from an unhealthy lifestyle to a healthy one. It would be a bit of a shock to the system, even though it's healthy. Your body would need time to adjust.

    Try and trust that things will get better. Now of course no one can say for sure that this is what's going on. Maybe you have some unrelated issue. If in doubt ask a doctor or something!

    I dont think that those feelings are related to any kind of a psychological issue. Maybe it's, like you said, "The rebooting process". But if that's how the rebooting process feels like... so help me god ! This is so fucking hard....

    I am sure you aren't exercising, do a 30 min exercise daily. You can do in morning and evening both, that would help more. All those negative feelings will be gone.

    In my experience and I've heard also - There's a point into abstaining where you hit a spike of depression. As long as you are aware of it, you can get through it. There's a few vids about it too. After you get over that, the benefits feel so much stronger and better.

    Hi, I'm currently at day 31 on no PMO. I've had this problem too, so imagine your NoFap journey like a rollercoaster ride, some days you will feel like conquering the whole world, some days you will question your existence...these mood swings are a part of NoFap withdrawal symptoms and this happens for any addict no matter what it is (porn, smoking, alcohol). This is your brain playing tricks on you, making you feel like shit so you fap(for the dopamine dose which it was used to)...our brain is really complex and powerful....but we can fight it...this feeling will pass soon brother...just be super engaged in your life and you will soon overcome this addiction. don't forget to to exercise and have a healthy diet. All the best!

    As your brain is removing one strong habit (addiction) it needs another strong habit also to fill that vacuum space created in between the neuro receptors. So try meditation(chanting is the best , it remofies your subconscious brain). You MUST do a new strong habit DAILY. It is been in every religion that chanting is the best medicine for modification. If you are an atheist then you can chant your moms name as well( it WILL help)

    I’ve seen many cases of failure during my year in the rebooting community, many brothers vow to reboot and not long afterward they would fail in their attempt. People that relapse becomes despondent, self-doubting and even decadent, some people may also give up. Many brothers choose to flee, believing that rebooting is not possible for them.

    The reason for rebooting is almost always due to deteriorating health, however, the attraction towards masturbation is strong and it binds us firmly. We are the puppet controlled by a puppet master, masturbation is like the enemy to which we suffer great casualties every time we fight him.

    After a relapse, many brothers would blame it on the lack of willpower and self-restraint, this reveals an inadequacy in our understanding. According to my experiences, relying solely on willpower and perseverance is extremely difficult, unless the person is some kind of rebooting hero who would rather die than to masturbate, these people are very few in number.

    Seeing people failing time and again, I’d like to point out a clear way for everyone, this method has helped me to free myself of the control that masturbation had over my life. There is a good saying: “Success has its ways, lest you have not yet found one.” When you fail it’s important to consider in depth on why we fail and not to carelessly blame it on the lack of willpower, if we act this way we will fail again in the future and thus being unable to free ourselves from this vicious cycle.

    I would like to spread a very important concept for everybody: brainwash! Everybody has probably heard of this term before. Those brothers who managed to stay clean were all thoroughly brainwashed.

    Many people may be biased towards the term brainwash and think that it’s no good. Actually brainwash is a neutral term that is faultless by itself, what matters is to apply it correctly. Depending on your own understanding, brainwashing can be understood as the purification of thoughts or the rewiring of thoughts. Many people have been looking at lots of porn, some people have been doing this for over a decade, these people are actually brainwashing themselves with filthy material and turning their minds into x-rated minds. Many people have read about the harmlessness theories with regards to masturbation, this is also a form of brainwashing where we allow erroneous beliefs to occupy our brain and render ourselves unable to distinguish right from wrong.

    Through brainwashing, a person may be totally transformed to another person, we need to make good use of this “brainwashing” tool in order to systematically cleanse the dirt from our minds and restore purity. People may have questions as to how to brainwash and with what. In our daily lives, we are subjected to many forms of brainwashing regularly, only this happens without us being aware of it; where we are fed with notions and values. According to principles in psychologies, when we are being fed a notion for long enough, we will naturally come to accept it. This is seen in advertising where we might dislike a certain advertisement from the beginning but as time passes we come to dislike it less and slowly to accept it over time. This process is a process of brainwashing.

    We need to apply brainwashing upon ourselves, as for materials we need to look no further than the rebooting material is posted by myself and other brothers, this will serve the basis for the material used for brainwashing. We must purposely engage in brainwashing by constant repetition, again and again until our brain is completely filled with brainwashing material. We need to do this from the moment we wake up in the morning, during our spare time during the day and in the evening. After a while, you will notice that your thoughts and ideology will undergo certain changes where the old filthy you have already vanished and it is replaced by a brand new sense of you. Having only a “brainwashing awareness” is not enough, we also need the intensity. Many brothers are aware of rebooting knowledge, what they lack is “brainwashing intensity”, if the intensity is inadequate the dosage will come out short and the results cannot be guaranteed. The reason to why the author is able to stay clean is because he is collecting rebooting material and thinking about rebooting every day. His mind is saturated with rebooting material and these material act as a firewall which separates PMO from himself.

    Everybody have washed their clothes before, the principle of clothes washing and brain washing is very similar, when the thoughts are dirty our actions become tainted. Since the brain controls the hands we should therefore not chop off our hands, we need to recognize that our thoughts have become contaminated, the only way to become clean again is through brainwashing. High dosage brainwashing, repeated brainwashing, and thorough brainwashing! We must thoroughly rinse away the x-rated material and return the brain to its former state similar to a filthy shirt that needs washing. To achieve a thorough result we must increase the intensity through repeated efforts when the intensity has been reached the results will surely follow. By then we will have conquered PMO and reached a stage of complete transformation, forever departing from that vile self.

    For those brothers who repeatedly fail, I hope that you can pick up the psychological weapon of “brainwashing” to thoroughly cleanse your minds. When your minds are clean your patterns of behavior will change naturally and victory will be assured. After you have used rebooting material to brainwash yourselves, you should also take what you have learned and impart it to other brothers, in doing this your own process of brainwashing will strengthen. The more you repeat this process the clearer will the results become and with time PMO will naturally disappear.

    Hi I also share some of your symptoms. It felt like I was going to have a breakdown over last week and I was worried I'd have to sign off sick. But the overwhelming emotions are starting to dissipate so what I will say to you is these feelings are only temporary and not forever.

    Of course if you have a medical condition of depression then you may experience things differently to me but I do still think it will get easier the more you practice noFap

    This is the psychological part of flatline, as I've read.
    I'm going through the same thing as well, 22 days in.
