    So it’s been about two months of no PMO, and I’ve been finding it to be quite difficult to fall asleep lately. I’ll fall asleep at 10 or 11pm, only to wake up at 3am, with falling back asleep being nonexistent. I find this to be an issue, because it interferes with work and I sometimes it’s hard to stay awake throughout the day.

    I bought some CBD oil yesterday in hopes of me getting some sleep. I applied some last night before bed and I felt really calm, but I was still awake. I was told that I have to give it a couple days to see results, so I’ll be monitoring that, but anything else I should consider?

    I’ve tried going to sleep only when I’m tired, counting while laying down, focusing on my breath among other things. Is there anything that anyone would suggest for falling asleep or staying awake through the day?

    I had this same issue at the beginning of my reboot. There wasn't much to do except hang in there and wait for it to pass. You could try doing some intensive exercise before you go to sleep, like running or strength exercises, they might tire you out enough.

    I'm dealing with the exact same problem on day 21, feels bad man. I just hit flatline, I think, which I hope will solve the problem for now. Other than doing the traditional sleep hygiene steps (going to bed and waking up the same time every day, avoid screens two hours before bedtime, don't exercise an hour before bedtime, and so on), try to avoid any sexual fantasies. I know that is pretty hard to do, but I ultimately thinks thats what it takes.

    I have invested in some special googles, that block out stimulating light and causes my brain to produce sleep hormones. I can highly recommend those. I also have a special lamp, that produces a special red light in the evening to get me to fall asleep, and a special white light in the morning to wake me up. I can highly recommend that as well. Just google "light therapy".

    Insomnia, plain and simple, is the revenge of your mind for pushing thoughts and emotions away. What's bothering you?

    Honestly, it’s really just the fact that I haven’t ejaculated for a little over two months. I’ve been getting a lot sexual thoughts as of late, but I haven’t acted upon them.

    The video does offer an interesting perspective though, thanks
