    Has my flatline started? I am feeling unhappy, my dreams are like my pre-nofap days, few and far between. I am feeling powerless. Even when I dream about my girl, it is again the same old dreams of someone else flirting with her and she is totally into him. I feel like a wallflower. I really feel restless and can do nothing about it.

    Earlier I used to masturbate when I get these kind of dreams and feel more pathetic. I am not going to do this now but the emptiness is getting to me. I know I have to something else to take my mind off, there are gazillion things to do but none of them give an immediate result. The time is less & I am confused & bored. Darn this low confidence cycle. Just 2 days ago I was feeling great and now this!
     
  2. It was exactly what you're feeling right now that ended my best streak.

    I think it's caused by two things. I theorize that it's not only a flatline you're going through, it's a loss of confidence because a benefit from abstaining hasn't hit you for a while.

    Me, for example, the benefits from abstaining start to appear a little over a week and they keep stacking until I'm about a month in. Then no benefits appear.

    Just stick through it and distract yourself. You're doing great. 48 Days is no joke. Soon, you'll have a really good day and your mood will soar.

    That's good that you felt confident and good before this, so you know it'll come around, nah I'd say it'll deffo get better, coming from a guy who got over 60 days of nofap before, tbh I'm in a pretty bad stage of it as well, keep going man! Also my main tips are :

    1) meditating - use youtube guided meditations to make you feel good and shift your focus

    2) cold showers- Can make you more alert, powerful, resistant to the cold, and boost hormones greatly

    3) work out/do sport - Great way to socialise and release endorphins

    good luck dude, we got this.

    Thanks brother. I really hope so. hope is the only thing that keeps me going. I need the benefits and enjoyment of leading a normal life of attraction and courtship/relationship with real women. I don't mind giving up porn & masturbation but when oh when?
