    So I am no super powered no fapper who has a glorious streak. At the moment I've been able to have a few little streaks going but something has happened to demonstrate to me that PMO really is complete bullshit (for me). Now I say for me because some
    People may not suffer the same effects as me. I have posted before saying how when I fap my sleep is greatly affected or I don't sleep at all. It has played havok on my well being but I won't go any further into it right now, look at my other posts of you wish to read about that.

    So, lately I have been making sure I go to bed early as late nights after GF went to bed was a danger zone for me. I have also been abstaining for PMO as best I can. My head aches were gone. Brain fog was clearing and I was more social and confident. Last night however I allowed myself to fap as a kind of test just to see if it was due to the early nights. Right away I had the same throbbing headache, feelings of guilt, lethargy and that night I slept like shit. Fast forward to the morning and wow! I work up and said to myself, "so I can't fap anymore".

    I felt awful. The energy and better mood I had form the previous couple of days was a thing of the past. I now totally realise that - for me - porn is not good. It really messes me up, sometimes worse than others. I just hope that I am able to get back to where I was in terms of sleep, mood and social ease. What a pain in the ass to have something so enjoyable be so damaging.

    I hope my realisation is helpful and as eye opening to others as it was to me. Good luck all!
