    Hello!

    I've gone from pretty much edging PMO and climax 4 hours a day, sometimes twice a day to what has basically amounted to 30 minutes of PMO every other day for the last week. I feel very upset when these relapses happen. I can say I have seen some improvements by cutting down the PMO - I sometimes feel more focused and like I can actually speak well. My overall urges seem to be going down as I don't have a desire to spend time during the day or weekends engaged in PMO like I used to.

    Today I just feel awful though. I have a horrible headache, I haven't done anything workwise since yesterday (even before I had a 30 minute relapse yesterday) because I can't focus or concentrate. I just feel kind've like I'm in a daze, tired, sleepy, and I feel like I have no emotions. I don't necessarily feel depressed right now (I suffer from depression), but I just feel blank or nothing and really weak or tired. I also feel really hungry.

    Could this be some kind of flatline or is it just my brain adjusting from all the hours of PMO to none/not much?

    This has also been my addiction. It is probably by far the most damaging form of PMO addiction. You should stop relapsing immediately, buddy. Please please stop.. Your symptoms are telling you enough is enough. I have those exact same symptoms + more...
    (read this: https://www.reddit.com/r/NoFap/comments/ajtp4o/warning_dont_keep_relapsing_kindling_can_kill_you/
    and this: https://www.nofap.com/forum/index.p...s-stop-immediately-or-it-can-kill-you.222778/)

    Get a good sleep habit going. And if you're hungry; eat eat eat by all means, but eat very clean and healthy.

    You can do this brother :emoji_muscle:
     
  3. bro if you feel flat-line in 1 day, you got to change!!
    PMO cannot be the "joy" in your life, you have to find other things to make you happy

    I've been having some vivid non PMO related dreams, especially last night. Apparently that is a good sign that the brain is healing?

    I mean going from 20 + hours a week, to what has been about 1 hour earlier this week is a huge change for my brain and I'm glad I'm doing it. Of course, I don't want to relapse at all but I think focusing on the progress is also important.

    Yup! Keep going!



    We've been kinda sleep deprived for years because of throwing our bodies into opioid-storm each night for years

    That's nice to hear. I remember nearly every day a dream and on some days it feels like I have a second life during sleep. Always thought that this has to do with my creative vein, and not abstaining from PMO?
