    Has anyone over here gotten overly emotional or stressed the longer you do nofap?
    I'm not sure if its because of external factors like work or health/diet, but once I reach the one week mark, I kinda feel easily angered, or emotionally charged.

    Is it just me?
  2. Totally. I think a lot of succumb to this effect because primarily it’s what binging on porn does to us over time. Our stress response goes through the roof and I know for a fact during early acute recovery and whilst as an active Porn user in the end I could not tolerate any stress or make any good informed decision making on my part. Hypofrontality mate look into it.

    It's great that you're paying attention to this pattern. If someone was to only journal and write a reboot drama without analyzing it at all then it's questionable how well they will be able to change or cope with the internal change.

    Have you found or tried anything that might help with the stress? Have you looked at whether there are specific type(s) of stress, or some that are more prominent than the rest even if everything seems stressful?

    Nothing yet. My work stress makes it worse for me to cope with this mood change... The longer I do nofap, the clearer my mind gets but the easier I snap from stress.

    Im experiencing kinda depressed mood today with strong urges, Ive just passed my first week. I feel I dont feel anything, except urges, seem to lost any motivation, its like hanging in the emptyness. This is a very dangerous point I think, because depressed feelings can cause you to relapse.

    I felt that way alot after the first week. I just got depressed and taking leaves or MC just to take a break from everyone. EIther that or I go to work, do my owrk, go to lunch alone at a park and zone out.. You really need someone you can trust to talk to. I text my old friend or just sleep the day.
