    Does anyone else feel really sad and lonely only a few days into nofap? For the past few months I've only been able to go 2, 3 or 4 days without porn and then I relapse again. I think mainly because I end up feeling really lonely and sad and don't have the strength to fight my urges. I'm leaving for college soon. Maybe then I will be too busy to relapse and any time I'm not my roommate will be there so I won't be able to relapse. Has college helped anyone avoid relapsing? Sorry this post is kind of random and long. These are just a few questions I've had.

    Yes, I got the same feeling.. what I feel now is a bit of inner peace but with sadness in my heart.
    For depression, try to write down your feelings in a journal.. maybe a daily journal or what is called the morning pages. It helps a lot!!!

    Thats a really good idea. I will give that a try. Also the inner peace but with sadness in my heart is a perfect way to put it. Exactly what I feel.

    Hi gents,

    Don't worry guys, this is normal. What's happening is your brains is simply a little bit deprived of the usual hits of dopamine. You can take it as withdrawal.
    With time, the true default, healthy level of hormones will come back. And the depressive state will disappear.

    Of course, it's difficult to stay in this state of sadness for any period of time. To help our bodies and minds it is crucial to exercise (any sport is perfectly fine), eat well and sleep well.
    We are also social creatures. Talk to people, play games with them, try to socialize.

    The withdrawal induced depression with vanish. I promise.
