    Yesterday i had a wet dream at day 16 of nofap hardmode. It vanished my amazing benefits such as overall increased mood and fearlessness when talking with people which i usually get after 14 days. So my question is, when do i get my superpowers back? Would really appreciate if any experienced Fapstronaut can share his knowledge on this topic. Also is there a difference how much days take you back a wet dream that ends with full semen loss and a wet dream that ends with ejaculation of a prostatic fluids (dont know the proper word for it, but i've experienced this) that is much, much thinner fluid than actual sperm almost transparent.

    I'm definitely not an experienced fapstronaut, but I think your case is a more psychological one. You probably haven't lost anything, but you feel that way because you know you had a wet dream and that somehow harmed your semen retention. However, the thing is that wet dreams and the ejaculations that come with them are't really controllable. I don't know the science behind it but surely it is a natural way your body expels old semen in order to produce new (that's only my guess). The point is, your are still good. Just keep strong and hopefully you'll start getting those superpowers back. You got this, man, don't worry.

    Oh, and remember nofap will not change your life just by itself. That social awkwardness you mention will vanish if you make an effort to make it vanish. Sure, NoFap can help, but the only way you start to feel more confident is to expose yourself little by little to unconfortable social situations. So, yeah, I do think nofap has benefits but they alone will not change your life. You will.

    @Batdrew basically covered it. The superpowers aren't real superpowers. They're how normal people function. You need to take responsibility for how you want your life to be and take action steps to create that reality for yourself. As fearless as you may feel while talking to people while on NoFap, it pales in comparison to how you will feel if you take a year to consistently challenge yourself socially. When things allow it, go to nightclubs at least once or twice a week and practice talking to people. Learn to be charismatic enough to have people want to talk to you. The benefits of doing that cannot be accurately conveyed until you actually live them.

    Its mostly in your head I think. It takes two weeks to fill your balls from empty to full so seman retention should be back 100% after two weeks.

    I mean, i appreciate your words guys but i have to tell you that you are all wrong. I think none of you lasted in nofap more than a month without any form of stimulation, ejaculation, sexual thougths etc. Honestly after 14 days i start to feeling like a god. It is sudden feeling of a heat around my body like a God's mercy. I've had some experience with drugs and it feels like i was on a small dose of MDMA all the time. There's no way its made up by me. I was reading about it when this feeling came to me for the first time and there are some people that experienced it aswell.

    I agree with alohacalifornia on this one that it isn't based exclusively on psychology; I can talk from my experience - my best streak was 80 and there have been sudden mood drops I cant really explain in any other way (because absolutely nothing serious happened nor changed in my enviroment) than that my body absorbed all the stored semen on that day/night, and so I felt as if I relapsed from time to time. When you are getting filled with fluids again, you can also feel all the previous benefits "lost" by natural absorbtion that's reoccuring again and again every week, second or for some guys on the third week, soon after.

    So to answer the question of the thread - it's a cycle, a natural one. Sometimes you are up sometimes you are down, but the sudden "loss" of "superpowers" lasted no more than 1-3 days for me. Withstand the times when you are at the bottom of this cycle, and you will get back up in no time (and eventually down again ‍:emoji_arrows_counterclockwise:).

    Of course I agree with the others responders here that to apply those "superpowers" in life you have to make an effort to do so, but that's not what the topic of this thread was about really :emoji_wink::emoji_thumbsup:

    The sperm inside the balls will not give you superpowers! That is pseudo science at it's best guys. Porn addiction does not exist because it is not scientifically proven or in the DSM! It's all in your head and a placebo effect. Just watch some porn and bust a nut and relax. Porn is a great stress reliever and completely normal behaviour. Don't let the religious guilt and shame bring you down guys!

    Porn addiction does exist and the whole point of this website, among other things, is to help each other out to quit porn. It's not a religious affair and yes, it is a great stress reliever. It makes you feel good in that moment, but when you finish you come back to reality. There's essentially no difference from any other addiction (to drugs or alcohol, for example). So yes, this is serious.

    As a neuroscientist, I can tell you that this doesn't mean it doesn't exist, nor does it mean that it isn't an issue. I'd happily discuss this further if you want, but there are many resources on this website and on yourbrainonporn.com that will help you understand why and how porn addiction exists.

    2 days after a wet dream is when I start feeling good again. Wet dreams hit me hard with the chaser effect, it's like a temporary reset, but you get back on your feet much faster. I do anyway...

    You mean the same DSM that changes definitions and disorders every ten years or so? Lmao. Science doesn't have all the answers, some things that are fact in this day and age, were just "pseudoscience" a century ago.
