Strange serenity after long abstinence

    Guys as I am approaching day 60 I've noticed one change which I haven't documented yet.

    Along the way I've experienced heightened aggression, and sexual arousal.

    Now I feel something I've never noticed before... Serenity and peace. Like I don't care if I back down from an argument. Just bliss. It's definitely not a flatline.

    It's something different, something transcendent.

    Like an awakening, being alive but completely at peace with my surroundings. Odd but nice.

    Anyone else report feeling these types of emotions?

    Yup I can relate to this.
    For me, it's like a feeling of accomplishment that grows every day.
    A sense of peace with the world that comes from the acceptance of NoFap and staying the course.

    That must be a great feeling.
    Did you experience heightened aggression and sexual arousal right after the end of the flatline?

    Hi blocky dude,

    No I experienced heightened aggression two weeks in. Like I literally wanted to punch people's faces in and would blatantly flirt with girls in my shopping mall.

    I'd say day 30 after was some flatline, now it's like I'm in a flatline but not, if that makes any sense.

    I'm really calm and relaxed but I still have a libido. Flatline I had nothing.

    Congrats Tweeby.

    This is sincere, no sarcasm.

    From what you are saying here now, I think you're ready to change the quote in your signature.

    Sounds to me like you got more confident. I guess you proved yourself right!

    This is the type of think you experience when you have rebooted. You definitely have a sex drive (compared to the no-libido-flatline). But you have no intention or interest in masturbation or porn. That all seems very boring and undesirable. You are more in touch with your environment and are keen to simply live your life. If this is so, it would seem that you have rebooted @ 60 days. I congratulate you on your successful reboot! :)

    The same thing happened to me @ 70 in the past. I continued until 124 days and then lapsed once to PMO about a month ago. For the last 7-10 days I have re-entered the mind set you have articulated above. Last night I had a very wet dream. Yesterday I felt sexually charged with erections and some precum discharge. But masturbation and porn was not in my head. My erotic dream was regular intercourse rather than thinking I was relapsing to porn.

    Good stuff tweeby! I think my serenity and peace comes and goes now. But I am in this state for much longer periods of time than before.

    Yup, I can definitely relate to that feeling. It's some sort of "I don't care"-attitude but not in a lazy or passive-aggressive way, more like "I'm on top of things here, even if they don't work out in my favor. Everything's fine." - and I absolutely connect this development to my reboot. Although I couldn't say how long it took until I reached this point. It was just a slow development.

    Congrats :)
