    hello, it has been a week since I haven't done pmo and I m really happy, I really haven't had any big urge and because of that I am sorry that I will later and I want to be ready for it. How does widrawal work and what is flatlining??

    First off, both questions are covered in detail here: https://www.yourbrainonporn.com/ask-us

    Withdrawal is when your brain is expecting certain chemicals to be provided (such as dopamine) and they are not being provided. The body starts behaving oddly because it's in an abnormal condition.

    The flatline can be simplified to say that the brain closes down for construction. It is shrinking and reconfiguring dopamine receptors, among other things.

    I wrote an analogy (that I'm still tweaking) here:

    As Blue Oyster Cult says: Seasons don't fear the Reaper, and so you shouldn't fear the flatline.
