    So I was on a long streak of over 200 days. I relapsed and binged for a about a week. I finally came to my senses and said it’s time to stop again.

    To let you know how I relapsed, I was doing so good, we went on vacation and there was women in bikinis everywhere! I couldn’t focus and turn away from them. I then accidentally discovered P on reddit which I had no idea was on there, at least not like that. All the sub Reddit’s and the “social media” part of it with new posts and stuff. Unfortunately I kept on it for a few days.


    I was still having depression before, but it’s still here now, and worse. Has anyone had a slight fever after relapsing? One night I woke up FREEZING. I’m talking teeth chattering cold. With a slight fever of barely 100. That has happened to me a couple times early on in my last streak. It’s been around 99 the past couple days. I know obviously by body could be fighting something, but I did a google search and others listed it as a withdrawal symptom.

    I of course have had a lot of the regular withdrawal symptoms.

    Porn flash backs and sudden cravings
    Flatline
    Mood swings and very easily irritated
    Ally of anxiety that I never really had before
    brain fog(hard to think, concentrate) lethargy
    Felt very lonely and useless
    Not being able to sleep
    Very tired/fatigued
    No motivation
    Desire to avoid people but still lonely
    I sometimes feel more sensitive to heat
    More thirsty than other
    Feeling like my skin is warm sometimes
    Feeling like there is no hope and I’m messed up forever

    I know there is a lot more that I’m probably not thinking of. Since I’m going through some again, I would like a discussion on your withdrawal symptoms.

    Remember, I have read that if your experiencing withdrawal even tho it is very hard, rejoice because that means your brain is changing.

    Have you ever relapsed/ejaculated and then flatline after within like 2-3 days of a timespan? That's what happened to me.

    I have been PMO’ing since I was young, around 10-11 probably, I am 30 now. I remember doing it before puberty before semen even came out. It started at my friends house and his dads playboys. He hen showed me online porn, it was via dial up but still.

    I have been into some dark and shameful stuff as well, and done things I’m obviously not proud of!

    No no, I know you have and I completely understand that. I'm just wondering if you ever flatlined after like an ejaculation from binging so much.

    The crazy thing is living two lives. Trying to show everyone I’m normal and happy, and feed the addiction in private. I have low self esteem but I’m always told I’m very good looking, and should have no social problems, but I do because of porn.

    I am a follower of Jesus so this played part as well, but I’ve had girls when I was younger literally throw themselves at me and ask for sex. I would always turn them down. I was more interested in screen time instead.

    Well to be honest I haven’t binged a lot! When I do relapse I catch myself a couple days after and get back on track. I haven’t had sex with my wife in about a week and 13 days no MO so technically you could say I’m flatlining now. No desire to get off really.

    I am also sick though, or just having withdrawals. I’m not sure! Maybe both.

    I see. I hope I'm in flatline because I binged and orgasmed and flatline seemed to have happened! Scary shit.

    Wow! I started 9 months ago. I'am 14...
    I'm glad I found this problem quickly. I actually found out it was a problem during the first month.
    I usually do once a week, or twice a week.

    I'm so glad I wont be in my 30's, still addicted to this. :eek:

    I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE RESULTS TO START KICKING IN!
    I KNOW IT WILL COME
    I KNOW ALLAH WILL ACCEPT
    IT IS RAMADAN, AND IT IS THE TIME OF THE YEAR WHERE ALLAH IS WILLINGLY, AND HE IS WILLINGLY ALL YEAR. BUT THIS--- THIS MONTH IS SPECIAL! :D :D :D

    I did experience teeth chattering in my first and longest streak ever، so I'd say it's commonplace among rebooters.

    I have the nerve tingling symptom for sure mate. I have it in the sole of my left foot and elsewhere but most noticeable on the foot now. It came on as a new symptom about 3 months ago. But I'm sure I might of had it before or somewhere else in my body. The burning skin I have had on my feet before and minor other places but it has not plagued me like other symptoms.

    Yeah man just like you said, also it came as a bundle of symptoms out of nowhere. Since last week I haven't felt good. It feels like a big illness that killing the body to the ground.(No other ways to describe it).

    I was sure hoping you would comment! I have read lots of your posts about these terrible PAWS symptoms. Man this is so hard. Like I almost wish I could go back a couple years ago when I had no idea about quitting, I felt so much better.

    If I was going to be wishing for stuff, I wish I never would have fapped to P

    For sure my man.

    I think every severe case out there would say the same. There is a light at the end of the tunnel I believe and coming out of all this crap in the end will make us stronger in certain ways.

    Most of my symptoms have died down now. Only lingering ones really that's left now but still no libido and semi erections plague me at nearly 26, lost my teens and the better of my 20's to this crap. Not no more I'll make up for loss time and be my best self.

    I went to the doctor today for a sinus infection. I’m big into holistic healing and natural remedies, but I couldn’t get anything to help!

    Anyways the nurse asked if a bit of a higher heart rate was normal for me, I couldn’t say “it seems to be normal after I relapse”
