Had a dream/nightmare that I was watching porn...for the fourth time

Discussion in 'Porn Addiction' started by tamecorolla, Jan 10, 2020.

  1. As I was sleeping, I had a dream that I was watching porn and I thought that I had relapsed until I woke up this morning just fine. This is the third time that has happened during my current streak of no PMO and the fourth time it has ever happened after beginning my NoFap journey.

    I hope that this is my brain rewiring since I haven't PMOd in a while (more than 2 months). The last time this happened, as a porn scene was playing in my dream, I woke up with part of my hand in my underwear. The crazy thing is that I don't think my hand ever touched my genitals, so I dismissed this and interpreted it as a wet dream. I had read other posts/comments both in the NoFap subreddit and the forum here about others masturbating in their sleep and I think I'm experiencing something very similar.

    I've been better at reducing my sexual thoughts lately and reducing my thoughts of sexual fantasies. If I do think about sex/porn, I either let go of the thought or focus on a new activity. I know that this is my subconscious mind reacting to me starting NoFap, but what else could I do to keep this from happening again? I'm stuck in a flatline right now, feeling as if I had relapsed so I figured that I should post this in order to get some advice from y'all.

    I would just say when that happens take a shower to take off the dirty and just keep going at it you’re doing great man.
     
  3. Appreciate it man. That's what I always do after something like this occurs. Sometimes I'm in a rut and sometimes I go on with my day fine but it's good at least to know that I'm not watching porn or masturbating consciously
     
  4. I've had nightmares like that s couple of times. It's terrifying to wake up, feeling you've used again. I take that fear as a good sign - it's something that upsets you, rather than not bothering or pleasing you.

    Like you stated When I had a dream like this I used it as a warning to be extra careful the following days.

    It's especially difficult to me if I wake up before orgasm, and/or remember details about what I saw or looked up in my dream. But yeah, I don't think there's anything that can be done about it... just try to get out of bed when you wake up out of such a dream, and don't finish it! [​IMG]

    You're body is fighting maybe this hidden shame you feel from watching porn. I remember I would have some dreams to where they were almost wet dreams? But I could actually see it coming and I was able to stop the ejaculation or release inside the dream. Porn is just like a real disease to our bodies. It's an illusion from the virtual world to reality in lust and pleasure. It's almost like your body is displaying a defense mechanism while you sleep.
