    Hello, fellow rebooters!
    I am here to implement a new NoFap streak and hopefully it's gonna be a success. I first started my first attempt at quiting PMOing back in January 2019 and experienced hellish PAWS to the point where i was suicidal. The paws were so severe that I had to be prescribed some SSRI's to ease off the withdrawals. I felt asexual for 2 months but sadly, the moment my libido kicked in again I relapsed after 60 days of monk mode. I did so because it was tempting to relapse. I wanted to try things, the wrong way. I relapsed in March and have been doing so every 9 to 12 days or so. Apparently, I have been unable to maintain a long streak.
    Now, I am already 12 days in and hoping to quit forever.
    The PAWS I experienced would include everything you know about PAWS, except for something called psychomotor retardation. I didnt have that, but my PAWS were so severe that I couldn't at time phrase a single sentence and would hardly concentrate in a conversation.
    I already know from some members that PAWS are inevitable, so my questions to the people who have had dealt with PAWS more than once are: when will PAWS hit me again? I am 12 days in and I hardly feel some depression and anhedonia kicking in . Will the PAWS be more severe than the last time I had a go at NoFap?!?
    Cheers!

    Did you mean you kick start your libido with a SSRI prescription?
    Were you a long pmo addict?

    From my experience they become more severe and last longer than the previous ones. If you want to get out of this hellish hole called withdrawals, you gotta quit cold turkey, total abstinence.

    No, I only took them for a couple of days and quit them cold turkey after I learned about their side effects. For fairness, they did help ease off my porn induced depression.
    Yes, I was. I was exposed to the satanic porn industry even before I hit puberty. I was 8 when I was introduced to M and 11 when I was introduced to porn.
