    Hey guys I'm on day 5 I have a couple questions.

    1. I in the past 5 days I haven't thought about porn as much or rarely after day 3ish but I've been checking out girls sexually a lot more, which I know isn't really much better. How long before you stop automatically objectifying women?

    2. I hear about flatline a lot, when should I expect that to set it in?

    I don't think there's any guidelines as to when to expect the flatline. Listen to your body and your mind and see how you're feeling. You should be able to judge when you're in it.

    Be encouraged that you are checking out women more. The addict mind is being disrupted, and will start to do things differently to get your attention and get you to go back to porn. You may also be feeling more confident. I do recommend that you find something else to consume your new found time. I like to recommend learning to cook a healthy meal.

    1. It's probably your brain rewiring, idk.
    2.expect to feel unmotivated, more negative, lower libido, and possibly more depressed.

    I've been keeping really busy with nursing school finals and working 12s at a hospital. But I've been way more focused this week one studying and practicing guitar so it's been really good so far. The urges are starting to get a little stronger as the days go on though
