    Screwed up again yesterday. One cause is anxiety that comes from feeling overwhelmed, which comes from procrastination. I need to be more proactive and stick to a schedule. Today will be better. I'm done w/ PMO.

    One more day heading South brave Fellowship!!!

    Hope you´re having a great PMO free day!!! ;)

    Here´s JK on the subject of wet dreams. Onwards!!!

    "Is a Wet Dream a Relapse?


    Have you ever wondered if your wet dream , "nocturnal emission", or even your intense sexual dreams which linger with you through out the next day is a relapse or slip?

    Early in my reboot, I wondered the same.

    I would have extremely VIVID, sexual dreams (one could reasonably say these were even more realistic than sex), and ejaculate/ orgasm powerfully.

    I'd wake up- my boxers soaked, go to the bathroom and stare in amazement at the amount of semen I released.

    You've probably had the exact same experience.

    The next day, you wake up and feel that your "streak" has been broken.

    Your "addict" is on red alert- rationalizing all the reasons why you should go ahead and watch porn today.

    "You slipped, after all. Might as well watch porn once since its within a 24 hour period.", or some such bullshit, you tell yourself.

    I get it. It can be a confusing experience when it completely out of your control.

    Or you experience back to back days sexual dreams during your first few weeks of rebooting. You’re worried that this is a “sign” that a relapse is imminent.

    Allow me to assuage your fears.

    A wet dream is absolutely normal.

    It has nothing to do with your reboot, save the odd couple of days where you may have more intense sexual dreams than normal. There has never been a conclusive study as to why we have wet dreams- so I won’t even go there.

    What I do know is that any concern you have about your wet dreams making you feel the same way that you do after a relapse is purely PSYCHOLOGICAL.

    In my 9 years of reboot mentoring, I’ve noticed that there are two sorts of men who worry about this.

    1) Conservative religious, or formerly religious men ( of any religion).
    This is simply conditioning – usually shame based from your religion.

    2) Men who have formed a strong attachment to “counting”, “semen retention” or the perceived positive changes they have experienced from staying off porn.

    Identify which category your fall into, then accept the fact that wet dreams are a normal biological function.

    Men in their teens experience wet dreams more frequently.

    Roughly 8 out of 10 men experience them a few times a year.

    Even I have wet dreams multiple times a year- despite being free of my porn and masturbation addiction for over a decade. If your kegel (pelvic floor exercises) game is on point like mine, your orgasms may be quite intense.

    However, most of the time, I forget about it by the time I’m awake and only remember later in the day if my girlfriend decides to tell me about a dream she had.

    I still feel great. No shame, no remorse, no extra sexual thoughts.

    I hope this clears up the issue for you!

    Your brother in this struggle,

    Well I am back at day zero again. I woke up with an urge and blindly followed it. The past streak was probably my best recent one. I think that I can do better this time.

    @RiseToGreatness do you have any advice? I keep stumbling on this same thing and I can't seem to get over it.

    Day 32 checking in.
    I would like to share some recent experiences with the fellowship.

    Over the last 3 days I have experienced some new, subtle, and brilliant changes. I have worked out like a beast. I watched an old England Rugby game replay and enjoyed it like I haven't enjoyed anything in years. And I have been confident, smiling and far less anxious at work too. Still dead libido and pied but I hope these will improve soon.
    I can only attribute this to nofap.

    So thank you @RiseToGreatness ! Thank you fellowship!
    If you are feeling down and out, keep your streak going brothers.

    Good times are round the corner. Onward!!!

    Day 23 completed.
    Morning was very tough. Somehow managed to bypass everything.
    I did watch some images but backed off after seconds.
    After that usual busy day...
