It's also day 1 for me. Nice to know that I'm not alone in this, finally mo
December has been a really shitty month for me. Not really so much for urges, but horrible mood swings and random depressive episodes made it by far my worst month yet. Just recently this as I was waking up, I was half asleep and felt huge aches in my penis and turns out semen came out. I can't recall much of what happened before that though. Pretty much a unintentional relapse to me anyways as wet dreams and similar events do drain you of vital nutrients. I did experience physical effects of a relapse such as pain and low energy, but mentally I wasn't too much different aside from wondering what the hell happened. Either way ever since October it's been the first time since October it has happened.
Aren't the depression and mood swings withdrawal symptoms of NoFap.You just have to keep fighting and overtime they will disappear.
Yeah I've been off for 3 months and shit happens. If I'm not mistaken your supposed to ride it out and let it settle down. Oddly enough it never got ridiculously extreme until about December.
Edit: It's also by far my least favorite thing since starting.
Day 2 down here starting day 3. Did your edging for two hours cause any side effects or anything? Because if your okay then I’m definitely absolutely ok. I got paranoid because I saw something earlier and looked for a split second on YouTube then got rid of it and didn’t linger too long. I get worried like that. Secondly. Like 15 minutes ago I never saw Porn or touched myself one bit but I saw a girls face and tried my best to tel my self it isn’t porn and tried to look at it in a different way but I got aroused. I’m not going to let myself relapse. Can someone let me know what’s up with this and reassure me? Thank you.
Waking up day 7. Slight achy blueball feeling wont go away. Feels almost like i need to pee. Annoying. I do feel mental clarity however. Had intense fantasies last night, gave me a hard time sleeping but it was fun. Urges are getting powerful. I find myself fetishizing women online. I need to get off the internet more. This is really hard, no pun intended. Gaah
Yes edging for 2 hours has given me side effects, for example, not fully feeling my benefits, but partially. I would not recommend edging, and it should be completely avoided, because for every hour you edge you should in theory be setting yourself back a couple days. If your streak is a month, it could set you back 2 weeks for each hour. If your streak is a year, it could set you back months.
A split second arousal on youtube will not cause any damage. Seeing a girl's face and getting aroused is 100% okay, in fact that's actually a benefit. When you're on nofap, girls are much more beautiful. You are 100% okay, as long as you are not watching nude porn/soft porn, masturbating, orgasming, edging, or releasing semen.
There are ways to to prevent a wet dream. Captain Sinbad on YT with his video goes into depth on this matter, but here's a good summary of it. Work hard that day (be productive), meditate or pray before bed, eat more bland foods (less spices), do cold showers, and Brahmacharya breathing technique. In the end, you can't 100% avoid a wet dream because it's totally natural. You are barely losing, if not any progress when you wet dream. It is a natural phenomenon. Low energy could be the result of something else, most likely you are flatlining from mood swings and depressive episodes, which causes low energy. It will eventually go away and is part of the withdrawal. UNLESS, your depressive episodes or mood swings are coming from another external reason/force which only you are aware of.
Welcome! You are definitely not alone! I checked your profile and found out you were 15 years old. You are incredibly wise/smart for trying to better yourself at that age. You should be proud of yourself and you'll gain an advantage in life compared to your peers through NoFap.
I'm in... Day 24 @corylife ...
Let's make nofap as lifestyle...
It's lot easier when we have support community.
Let's support each other.
I woke up very early and went for a run, yesterday I felt something bad, but exercising helped me feel better than I was yesterday, it feels great.
I also solved some problems I had with my girlfriend, for her I also need to change. Sometimes when I did PMO I felt further away from her, it's as if everything I felt towards her was gone, she doesn't deserve this, one more reason to change. To all who read this, you can, try to stay busy, if possible, leave, do not let your mind be doing nothing, remember why you are here, good luck! Day 2
I m done with this fudged up lifestyle of mine.I have been watching porn since like 11 and and now I m 19 and never even realised when it transitioned from something "cool and fun" to an addiction which has literally fucked with my brain and my life.
I m so done with this and you guys better know this I m not gonna relapse this time.Not again because this thing is no longer just another entertainment it's literally a void that once you fall into it keeps sucking the life out of you but I don't like this and this is enough reason for me to stop this shit.This is my new permanent lifestyle free of PMO.This is ME and I do realise it's not easy,I will have urges but I believe it's worth it.
So people,let's embark on a long journey together.
PS I will post day to day updates and thanks to this thread and y'all ,I believe I can make it happen.
Day 3: Getting my grip
Waking up day 8. Urges and fantasies are intense. Happy to say my fantasies are no longer based on pornagraphic content. Urges are strong tho.
Done with day 8. Starting day 9. Today just hit different. When I woke up, my back pain was gone, everything looked more sharp, and I have way more energy, and it's just easier to smile. Today is going to be a good day. I have a real estate agent state exam coming up in 5 days, so I'm going to study for that. I didn't end up going to the gym yesterday, but today I actually will. HAHA. Good luck to everyone, it's almost new year's eve!
Bro you almost have the same story as mine. You got this. It's so worth it. I love being at day 9. Good luck.
Day 1: I tried to start NoFap a while back and I relapsed, then did it again and again. As I am tired of this, I am quitting for good now. This thread will help keep me accountable. I will post my day count everyday. I am so done with pmo.
Yeah man I was also stuck in a loop of relapses,bunch of 1 and 2 day streaks.But I decided it is time to stop.Hopefully us both will have finished the 90 days bay march.Good luck
you have given good reasons to quit porn. I will come everyday on your post and read these reasons.
you are 19 and i am 45, having family, kids and trying to quit this devil since my 14s. I have completed many times 90 days but starting it again overtake me. this last one month I relapsed more than 4 times.
I hope today was my last relapsed let's beat this davil this time.
