I've found the rock bottom to be addictive because the only way is up

    I enjoy the stage where you e hit rock bottom and now suddenly it's clear what needs to be done . Mind clear and there's that obcessive drive to set goals and proceed .

    There Is so many sides to fap and NoFap .

    Watching porn where you've been awake most of the night and the brain goes into overdrive about what goals you need to get done .

    It's weird can be sitting stale for a few weeks doing NoFap and lack of overall motivation . Then major relapse awake all night . And I'm reset sort of speak.

    You even look like you've lost weight .

    Things need to change but there very slow

    I know what you mean.

    It is often (but not always) when I hit rock bottom that I make a positive change of some kind. And I can sometimes become very unproductive when I am weeks into NoFap.

    I think there could be a libido issue here too. Sort of like, when you look at porn, you tap into that libidinal energy (enegy which as a p addict, is often completely blocked (if no natural outlet). Then when you flip the switch, that energy comes all at once and with it can come motivation to get things done, to improve this or that and reach certain goals.

    I have tried manipulating the p cycle so that I can ride on that motivational/creative energy for longer, but it is risky and once the relapse reaches a certain point of severity (which it always does despite my best effort) things go too far and instead of feeling motivated, I can quickly end up numbed out, gormless and exhausted.

    As you say, I think it takes time to change this, so that the normal NoFap state has some integration of healthy libidinal energy.
