    I was hit by a lot of physical withdrawal symptoms some days ago, like extreme muscle twitching, flu- like symptoms, running nose, etc. I've been practicing NoFap for a while, but rarely manage to stick to it longer than a couple of weeks. This time I actually forgot about the whole NoFap part as I've been busy with a lot of other things. It was when I discovered this previously mentioned symptoms I searched for typical withdrawal symptoms.

    What I noticed is what other lists as their mentally withdrawal symptoms is what I consider every day side effects of PMO'ing and has been part of my life for the past 5 years. This are the exact things that has been wrong with my life the last years. The feeling of inferiority/inadequate socially and being intimidated by other people (other men) has been especially hard and I would say it's the root of most my problems.

    This is a random list I found which mentions pretty much how I feel socially and mentally while PMO'ing.
    Some depression
    • Feeling inadequate in social settings and at work
    • Laziness
    • Difficulty getting out of bed
    • Pessimism
    • Lack of motivation
    • Brain fog (unable to focus, unable to think and speak clearly)
    • Social Anxiety
    • Self-Criticism
    • Isolation
    • Fear of being criticized by others
    • Obsessing on past relationships
