    Hello, new to NoFap. Made it two and a half weeks before getting a manic episode that I believe was caused by not ejaculating. I really love how I feel while I’m abstaining. Increased desire to work out, more muscle gain, and it makes me feel powerful. Any other bipolar men who have experienced mania from abstinence? After the two and a half week period of abstinence I couldn’t get to sleep without an ejaculation. Tell me what you think gentleman.

    Old thread but Mania and PMO DEFINETELY feed each other for me! All I can do is try to focus that energy and wait for it to pass. There are days I didn't get much sleep the night before. It sucks and I cave in a lot. I wish I could help you more, but I don't have an easy solution. I do try to be aware of the mania and try to remember it will pass and try to do calming things like walks and mellow music. Basically, avoid anything stimulating.

    I have ADHD which has some similarities

    With ADHD you have emotional dysregulation . Basically if something pisses me off its stuck in my head like a ping pong ball . Even if all logic has been acknowledged. Brain scans show the part of the brain that regulates emotion in ADHD does not light up so basically very little filter emotionally . Porn sorts my mood out and I can relax again back to a clear head.. so I could see how it's used as a mood stabilizer
