    Asking for advice when the flatline gets really bad.

    I'm starting to struggle here, feel like crap and I can't afford to relapse.

    I'm finally starting to go to therapy for OCD and I don't want to throw it all a way.

    Can't sleep feel like shit and I looked up a P related thing on YouTube. Lucky there's no flat out P on YouTube but this is how it starts. I backed out of it before I watched anything and came here to get my mind off stuff.

    Its my 2nd longest streak and when the days are good man are they good.

    Hey man i think you are doing everything right, Talking about and sharing your issues will be a huge weight off your shoulders, Therapy is just that, a change to speak to someone who is an expert in how the mind works and i see that as a great step your taking.. I dont know if you plan on mentioning the whole pmo addation/NoFap thing along side ocd but none the less i'm sure getting a least some of the things that are bothering you off your chest will help greatly!

    Flat lines need to be ignored, Easier said than done i know. I went into to a flatline about 4 days ago during my most recent streak and ended up relapsing really badly. Don't give in to the urge to test if your have lost all your drive/libido it will end badly, It is still there and always will be, WHAT THE FLAT LINE IS TELLING YOU IS YOUR DESIRE FOR PMO IS FADING NOT YOUR REAL SEX DRIVE, THAT NEVER LEAVES YOU - You have gone 35 days already you are well on your way stay strong, your could be writing your own success story to inspire the rest of us sooner than you thinK you just need to overcome these last few hurdles/doubts

    This is how i have come to see it

    1 week - 2 weeks of no pmo - huge cravings, Hard to sleep,stress / anixity libido always feels high constantly, Hardest part of the reboot when it comes to urges alone.

    After anywhere between 2 - 3 weeks of no pmo and then on after - Flatline often hit, Declining desire for pmo. Our sex drive is still there its just we have this confused with our desire for pmo (When we feel horny as porn addicts its pmo addiction we feel not our real sex drive) Hardest part of the reboot when it comes our mind playing tricks on us. Urges that come get easier to ignore

    Thank you man so much for replying.
    I'll tell ya you what happened.

    I was able to end up going to sleep with out relapsing but man I had extremely vivid P dream and ended up haveing a wet dream very hard. I don't know if normal to have it like that but I feel like I relapsed. Let's just say I lost alot of internal energy

    I'm counting it as a wet dream cause it happened in my sleep but man I been stressed lol.

    Thank you for putting the time to reply to me. I'm going to bookmark it and re read it when I need to
