Please tell about the withdrawal symptoms.
Uhmmm... Good question @Rishabh king ! It's been quite a while now though, so I don't know if I could give the best report on withdrawal symptoms.
The worst was definitely not being able to fall asleep sometimes. I used to PMO every night before going to sleep, so my body got so used to this routine, I could barely go to sleep without PMO anymore. I often tried to counter this by working out before going to bed. Other than that, I remember having trouble to stay focused sometimes because my thoughts would try to wander of to sex and PMO.
Then there's flatlining, which was basically just a very hollow, bored, depressing phase. Felt like I couldn't get up my motivation for anything.
The regular urges for release were quite annoying, too. Sometimes I would worry about going to bed because I knew my thoughts might wander off when I'd try to fall asleep and then it would become hard to stick with the plan. The urges to PMO weren't too bad though. Craving someone to be naked with was a lot more intense and frustrating and dropping off PMO seemed to make it worse day by day. It was absolutely worth it though.
I just noticed I'm writing about this so casually as if it was nothing. I'm pretty sure though, my past-self would look at me like "The fuck are you talking about?! This is hell right here!" - so yeah, I guess it's been to long for me to draw a proper picture of it. Hope it still helps a little.
hehe,I don not think have sex is better than fap,You are not a really man
Thanks man that helped me a lot.
Thanks for this, I had fun reading this because it is so true, the rules you present are similar rules that I made for myself too. How funny is that?
Captain B, this has been a super inspiring thread, you are the epitome of AWESOME and I can speak for all of us new to NoFap, we can't wait to ride the bus in Awesomeland too!!!
It's funny how this post seems to come up again within the forum every now and then even after such a long time. I'm barely on this website anymore and just got on here hoping to find some motivation in other peoples' posts but seeing all the positive comments here is really motivating, too! Thank you all for that
Reading through my own post is hella interesting as well! Lots of things have changed since I first wrote it and getting to see how my perspective has changed makes me re-evaluate a few things... I can only recommend reading your own old posts!
I relapsed a while ago and dabbled with this "just every once in a while won't hurt..."-kinda attitude for a few months. Partially as an experiment, partially due to high levels of stress. Long story short: it didn't quite work for me and I didn't like how it seemed to change me so I've been back on track with no PMO for the past 20 days. I'll write more about it once I reach at least 30 days. It's sooo weird how these 10 days seem like a lot of work for me again!! When I was about 6 months into my streak, I didn't even care about days, I wasn't even thinking about just making it to the next week or anything like that. It's strange how hard it is to get back to that state of mind. But then again, I know it's possible and I know it's worth it.
Anyways, I figured I should "announce" I'll write about my latest experiences after I've reached 30 days so I'll have a goal in mind, adding to my motivation Let's hope it'll work!
This post was perfect.
This is very inspiring and insightful. Thanks for sharing
you triggered me
Well done. An inspiring read. There is definitely a light at the end of the tunnel.
This one inspires me.
I like the OP a lot, and tee hee at the poster who shit talked about it helping nobody. CLEARLY it helps a lot of people. Also I like being sweared at. Sworn at. Whatever. It's like the good kind of spanking.
WHAAAT!? A male does not even produce semen at age 5?? How?
I'll will get there. And Beyond.
You are an absolute legend man, congrats! Very helpful tips
Probably he means he liked stroking since five, not actually MO
