    I occasionally get flashbacks. Yeah my streak isn't that long, but before this one I went 20 days.

    The odd thing for me is that The flashbacks I have include things I've watched years ago. They are the softer things.

    My addiction has spiraled quite bad before I stopped again and my mind doesn't give a damn about any of the new stuff.

    I know they are not relapses, but why the early things?

  2. Yep normal. I went though it too. It's another symptom of addiction withdrawal. Flashbacks, pornographic dreams, they are all normal. Some people get them, some don't. The flashbacks vary, some are from early pornos people watched, others are recent. Your brain is rewiring.

    It's normal.

    Here down i have some info for you, as you see craving and flashbacks will miss during reboot...just to mention, now after full 90 days reboot (i relapsed only to test it and now i am on my 2nd hard mode reboot) i don't even have any flashbacks or have any desire to watch porn again...so, be strong and do full reboot and craving and flashbacks will be reduced and then they will be removed from your brain.

    • 5 minutes - heart rate returns to normal.
    • 2-3 days - guilt and shame seems to decrease.
    • 7 days - brain fog lifts.
    • 14 days - prolactin starts to drop.
    • 14 - 21 days - due to drop in prolactin, dopamine sensitivity increases, you can start to enjoy the little things in life again, no longer emotionally numb, energy levels start to increase big time, confidence also increases.
    • 30 days - cravings and flashbacks noticeably reduce.
    • 30-60 days - PIED symptoms disappear or improve. Erections become rock solid, unless you're PIED symptoms are severe. Confidence keeps rising
    • 42 days - ΔFosB (DeltaFosB) that has accumulated around the nucleus accumbens starts to remove itself. This makes it possible for the neurons in the porn-addicted pathways to now start to slowly break up over time without use.
    • 90 days - considered a full reboot for most people, however people with severe PIED will need longer. Confidence still rising
    • 120 - 150 days - symptoms of severe PIED disappear or improve.
