    Sup bois and girls,

    I can find all the infos I want about flatline, how to get out of it and stuff, but I don't find a whole lot about if that's something that's gonna happen, or some people recover completely without having any flatline period ?

    I'm at day 23 and I would fakin love to be in a flatline, I'm so horny all day long but also got the entire panoply of flatline beside that like depressed, sad/moodswing, irritability, bad sleep, etc.. If I could at least not feel any sexual desire, it would help not want to kill myself before this gets better tbh..

    Also I know some ppl go on it at later days than where I am, so the question is really directed to "is that possible that u never get into a flatline ?"

    Yeah, it's possible to go through it without having a flatline. Depends on how much your brain is already screwed up by porn. I went for almost eighty days without any kind of sexual stimulation and my libido was still there. Just channel that extra energy into other aspects of your life. Learn to control it, that's what I'm trying to do.

    Flatline isn't really a thing IMO unless one's sex drive was already quite deviated from reality (or something else was going on) -- and that IMO that is where the whole value of NoFap is.

    In other words, it is to keep people from "junking" on fapping/MO/etc... outside of whatever/however their own bodies would wish to have it. So, for example, if someone experienced a wet dream, I'd say chances are their body already really strongly wanted some kind of release anyway, so even fapping at that time might not necessarily be that bad. But if somebody just wanted to fap only "just because they wanted to" or based only on some presumed tiny modicum or "semblance" of urges, then that would be not so good. But, since probably a bunch of guys already fall into that latter category anyway, I'd say NoFap and trying it out is definitely not a bad thing at all!

    If I understand what u say correctly, from your perspective, the reason why one isn't having a flatline at some point is because their body wasn't too tired of pmo (physically) and it didn't need to get into that "security mode" which makes you not even wanting to do it at any point so you don't get even more in that "red zone". Makes a lot of sense, that's a viewpoint I would agree with since the body seems to work that way with so many things.

    And it would also make sense with my profile since I was working on "not excessive wanking" for a long time, like I used to do it 2-4 times a day for like 5 years, then I realised how bad it was to some extent (not completely) and I decided to regulate to once every 2 days with 10-20min sessions max, 1-2 jerking off, which is still a lot but far less in the extreme than before. I guess I would have been in a flatline earlier if I just got out of that 2-4 times a day part of my life.

    Brother, take advantage of your hornyness and transform that energy into something else. When I'm on a flatline i feel dead, but when i'm horny I feel alive, it's your boost, just use it for something else. Preferably something physical

    Well I understand what you mean, between days lets say 8 and 15 I had this horniness coupled with great energy, but I had so bad anxiety with all that, that I couldn't really do anything with it as u say.

    Also now, it's horniness coupled with depression and all the "flatline negatives" but not the "energy feeling", i can litteraly sleep 8-9h feeling shit and go back for 2-3h of sleep during the day, I feel shit, sad, I even regret the mood swings of days 8-18 since I had some okay times, also suicidal thoughts are annoying.
