    Right. But, those relapse were no Porn involved or should I reset? i just want to check the symptoms.

    I just pointed out what I see as lapse in logic nothing more.

    My actual advice is to not give much though to your symptoms, you can write them down if you want, in detail and move on.

    I pee a lot around day 7 or 8. Sometimes several times a night.

    I have lower left quarter abdominal pain, radiating down my presumed spermatic cord or Vas Diferens.
    And a general bloated feeling along my lower abdominal wall, reaching slightly into the pelvic region.
    The left nut in question itself does not hurt, and no problem with the right.
    The left cord/groin area feels sore if I go running, with each foot impact into the ground.

    Any advice on what this could be?

    It also started after 2 doses of a supplement called MSM.
    Which I decided to take for acute knee pain I have was experiencing at the time in my left knee, it was touted as a joint repair supplement.
    Instead I got this lower abdominal pain and left nut cord pain.

    Some people say knee pain is a symptom of PMO withdrawal.

    I think I either have 'Blue Balls' or Varicocele, I would rather the Blue Balls!

    For the record i've been watching porn since 2009 (i was 12 years old), been trying NoFap seriously since 2017, best streak 72 days hardmode, failed and falied, escalated recently to cuckold and sissy hypno. Currently on day 19 hardmode

    Usually the first 10 days are easy so no withdrawals

    10-21 days:
    -Social anxiety

    21-35 days:
    -More anxiety
    -Insane urges
    -Intermitent flatline/depression

    35-50 days:
    -Random anxiety but not to intense
    -Invasive sexual thoughs
    -Sexualize women a lot

    And increase brain fog, anxiety and self-hate. I'd rather exercise and work out for the rest of my life, reducing the risk of literally every cancer in my body.

    I've made a thread for getting rid of these fetishes. And it should help with the anxiety as well.

    Just to let the community know, my pain has gone away
    No wet dreams or release of sperm in anyway.
    I did find it funny that the pain was localised to the left side of my body.
    But I did read somewhere that the anatomy of the left nut is different from the right.
    (Checks nuts constantly, I don't know U guys anymore.)
    Haha I'm having a small existential crisis abt my nuts. Who are they! Jks jks.

    Masturbate 21 times a month.....for science!! , Hahaha.

    Not a fan of authority bias.

    I also think if someone is trying to prove anything, they will.
    And this happens with a lot of, maybe all; science articles and journals, sources.

    Do you notice any sperm in your pee, is your pee sticky to any degree?

    If it is, it's potentially your body getting rid of excess sperm.

    Keep hydrated haha.

    For relapse.

    I find making another big lifestyle change at the same time as quitting PMO, like a change in diet or quitting something else at the same time; keeps my mind from even thinking about porn since I'm preoccupied with quitting, say, another addiction, or quitting a routine you've been stuck in for ages like watching your phone too late at night, snacking late or anything else that is habitual to you, and focusing on keeping to a new diet is a big one.

    I find this helpful personally.

    To the point I haven't really noticed any withdrawal symptoms, besides the physical symptoms I mentioned in my first post.

    Maybe I am jumping the gun though, it's been about 2 months maybe 3, not sure.
    I don't count the days.
  12.

    It's ok, I know you can feel helpless when your down and life is kicking your ass or nuts in haha.
    But hope exists!
    Aswel as change!
    The Key is to distract yourself with new and healthy goals.

    Diet change.
    Maybe replace soda, with something like green tea, it can give you what people call "tea energy" and I love it!
    In some sodas there are two ingredients that can cause palpitations, caffeine and aspartame; the artificial sweetener.
    And all that sugar cannot be good for ones mental and physical health.
    And after a big meal, blood flow is redirected to the stomach for digestion, which could cause heart palpitations.
    Eat magnesium rich foods, like bananas pumpkin seeds, spinach and avocados to name a few.

    I eat a predominately plant-based diet, with meat here and there, but this is personal and not essential, you can eat meat all you want, just cut the junk out, learn to cook!
    My rule usually is, if it came in a packet I don't eat it.

    You don't want to get addicted to marijuana because it will give your heart a workout, it makes your heart work faster, leading to more palpitations, aswel as increasing the likelihood of more anxiety; in the long run.

    I would try and reframe your thought of "I want to be addicted to something else"
    To, I won't have anything be a master over me.

    Work at what you can change, baby steps.

    Do you exercise, cardio?
    Although it will make you feel like your heart is being pushed to hard at first, it is great for heart health and self confidence as your physique changes.

    I'm also a fan of the supplement
    N-acetyl Cysteine, it's good for anxiety.

    Your experience reminds me of me, except I was fat, was teased throughout my school years; I'm 29 now, and I had tremendous amounts of social and general anxiety, which was a major pain, pun intended XD
    The anxiety was exacerbated by cannabis use.
    I started watching porn at 13 also.
    So I had a lot of heart palpitations and excessive heart pain for my age.

    I also did a lot of self reflection, looking at my self limiting beliefs and replacing them with positive affirmations.
    I think it was called 'Shadow work'.
    Tremendously helpful in breaking out of negative mind states we get our selves into.

    Meditation can help, I swear it sounds simple but it is actually quite hard, just to focus on the breath, if you can; it can reduce anxiety quite a lot, and it doesn't feel half bad being a Zen master haha.

    I hope you can use some of these suggestions
