    I'm new to NoFap and currently on day four. Almost slipped this afternoon and I want to know if the urges begin to stop. This day has been pretty rough and I wonder when it was hardest for you guys?

    Around day 40 "Heavy Flatline".
    Energy was way too low, I sometime even wanted to pass out and even had some panic attacks.
    Took me around 5 days to be normal again.

    I knew it was the dreaded flatline so I kept pushing myself.

    Meditation is a big key here and a setup reminder of your life goal where you want to go to.

    Thanks! My goal is 90 days so I'll try and recognize this flatline. As I said, I'm new to NoFap and not really sure what to expect on this journey, but I know it's going to be worth it!

  4. In the past the five weeks mark seemed to be the “Wall” for me.

    I’m at three months now.

    I got busy with a daily routine that fills up my day.

    There’s always been an urge of some kind. They fade. I don’t think they ever go away.

    The desire to stay clean does eventually grow and overrides the decreasing urges to act out.

    Once i didnt do any dopamine boost for a long time, no prizes for myself and the organism was so dull and bored that i felt that would be much joy if i crashed into other car on freeway. Or get into a fight. Just to feel something.

    Is there a different reason than just the 90 days?
    If so write that down so you can look back at it.
    You can't focus to an end without a goal/purpose, who knows you might even go further than the 90 days.
     
  7. Day 3, 4, and 5 are almost always the hardest.

    I always felt so depressed and drained after a porn session and found this is actually pretty common. I only realized how addicted I was once I tried to stop. 90 days seems like the recommended time-period for a reboot, although people heal at their own rate.

    Once in day 64, I was thinking of Jennifer Lawrence, (just her performance in thg nothing sexual) for some reason I got a huge urge that went on non stop for 6 hours
     
  10. Without anydoubt, day 1 & 2 was the hardest. Once i get through those I knew i could manage anything I put my mind too.

    Im a serious PMO addict

    It's because of many reasons, mainly because I rly wanted to quit, I didn't want to relapse, while yes now feels bad but later it will feel amazing, even if it's next year, but if I relapse I will get so depressed, and i knew that a single moment of happiness can't make up for relapsing, also I didn't want the 2 Month of work to go in vain, just think about why you chose this path, why you chose quitting, the hard part is remembering why u started during an urge, of u do remember it might get easier, also don't start a chain, never follow an unintentional look by an intentional one, and good luck
