I usually post on the nofap subreddit but I've decided to come here... I have been practicing nofap hard mode since mid-March of this year. I've had 3 true relapses (but without porn) and about 15 wet dreams this whole time. I have felt the benefits of nofap with things like better eye contact, better-looking eyes, stronger voice, more confidence, better ability to problem solve but I also experience some very negative downfalls that most definitely outweigh the positive. These include incredible muscle tension, it seems like depression, a weird underlying anxiety (ill come back to this), no motivation, nightmares, impending doom, and learned hopelessness. These negative side effects are more prevalent the longer I go without any sort of ejaculation. Its weird because I have noticed by day 3/4 after a wet dream I actually feel good and normal but by day 10 I am back to feeling like garbage. I think that my worst symptom is honestly my incredible muscle tension, it is wrecking havoc on my body and it was never there before nofap. But my next worst side effect is this weird underlying anxiety. The best way to describe it as is my mind only works in anxious situations, outside of that I feel pretty emotionless all day and it is tough for me to feel good emotions. Could these be signs of withdrawal despite being on a long reboot. Do I stay on Nofap? I will also add I am going through Post Acute Withdrawal Sydrome from quitting weed in January.
