    I'm currently on my 12th day and till the day before yesterday everything seemed easy but yesterday I got a sudden headache in the right half and I became angry and moody for no reason.

    I also had an argument with my father yesterday and since then I'm not talking to him. I really want to apologize but something is just stopping me I don't know what.

    Moreover, I feel soo pessimistic that I was even thinking about suicide. I'm worried.

    Are these the symptoms of flatline or do I really need to go see a doctor.

    Need your help people!!!

    feeling suicidal,stressed and irritable is normal because your prolactin levels rise when you abstain from porn as your brain considers porn very important for it .So when it is not getting it ,it increases your procltain level .Just relax and continue on the streak .Best of luck from your brother in this struggle

    Thankyou brother :)
    I'm feeling more in control as the days are passing. I hope that I become the old me who was not exposed to p. Your support means a lot and may we all get the strength to get rid of this addiction completely.
    Thankyou :)

    If you feel sexual urges and get morning woods then it's probably not a flatline. A flatline is when you absolutely don't have any urges, you don't feel good, with no interest in girls and you feel low, anxious. Make sure your symptoms are not something else.

    Everytime you fight the urge ,your self control circuit becomes stronger and your porn addiction circuit gets weaker .So bro,as you are proceeding ,you are having more self control.

    I'm memorizing this or having it tattooed on the inside of my eyelids. I think I'll memorize it first.

    brother !knowing it helps to fight urges .I just had extreme urges on my 14 th day streak for 4 to 5 hours straight .I feel sad for thinking for a second to give in to my urges.Then I came across this .I controlled my urges for 4 5 hours .From that moment ,my urges are pretty weak .Your recovery accelerates when your brain will know that it is not ever going to get porn .It will rebalance things .Best of luck from your brother in this struggle.We will be fine one day.We just need to keep going .Suffer today to have a better tommorow

    Thankyou so much guys :)
    Your support is all I need. I'm currently on my 18th day and feeling very low and irritable. I just have arguments on very small things. I just feel so low but I'm hanging on.

    I need a suggestion guys. Do you think I should stop interacting with anyone until my anger issue gets better??
    This is because I don't want to ruin the terms with anyone and hurt them

    It's not just you; I feel the same symptoms. I seem to have a bad flatline one week a month where I will feel depressed and hopeless. I'm hoping that it will get easier soon. Just remember that you don't actually feel that way; your brain is just going through dopamine withdrawals.

    Not flatline just classic withdrawals. When your on flatline you will know trust me. Impossible to get an erection, your oenis will feel dead, you will have 0 motivation.

    I had similar issues around that mark on my streak. Crazy mood swings depression anxiety went up a bit. Its your brain readjusting to the lack of dopamine reward. Expect the withdrawls apparently they pass sometime after the 14 day mark then reoccur around 30 days. Then again id expect there to be waves of withdrawl and euphoria during the two weeks from 14-30
