Is this normal in Rebooting, or is this a sort of a relapse?

    Had an interesting experience last night. Felt strong sensations return to my penis. It actually wasn't a very comfortable feeling, but it felt extremely sensitive. I had to urinate several times that night. I tried to relax in bed, and then got an erection. Had an erection while I was awake, and then a very rigid one when I woke up that stayed with me for a bit while I was awake. I thought "great! I'm making huge progress really quickly" This was all with no PMO. I haven't orgasm-ed or even edged in 2 weeks. And I did not orgasm last night. I keep my hands away.

    But then today in late morning I felt absolutely awful. Felt severe withdrawal symptoms, and the craving to "binge" (I think). Had a headache and felt sick to my stomach for a few hours.

    For the most part it seems to have passed, but it seems like my excitement last night created a withdrawal response today. However, I did not relapse, and did not orgasm. It was a huge struggle though! but I did make through it. It almost feels like I relapsed without relapsing. Is that something anyone else has experienced.

    Thankfully I feel much better now and am still PMO-free. Man that wasn't fun!

    Well done. Tough call. Not a relapse. I had similar feelings about 2 weeks into streak. Night erections are tricky. You did right not touching.

    I was just stoked I got hard on my own while I was awake. I thought that was a sign of improvement.

    I feel much better now, though. Yeah, I keep my hands away.

    My previous long sessions with meditation have helped. I can recognize the impulses and discomfort, but not give into them as easily.

    We are not our feelings

    Your morning-after sounds like a major case of blue balls. Don't worry about it, though. That happens to me if have foreplay but nothing to show for it.

    It's almost 4pm where I'm at, and I feel pretty much back to normal. The junk seems a quite bit more sensitive tho. Staying away from fantasies.

    wow these walls are an amazing shade of beige...
