Anyone else get more anxiety on Nofap?
What kind of anxiey?
I think what you feel is a consequence of withdrawal.
Don't worry, just keep up the good work and stay away from pm. You will be fine, trust me!
God bless you!
Like persistent anxiety and irritation not being able to relax and heart palpitations.
I think I used PMO to deal with anxiety now that I dont use PMO I feel it more
Just keep up the good work and stay strong. Is not a easy war, but you can handle it!
Exactly what I say, is a consequence of withdrawal, but will pass, don't worry.
Yes I still have anxiety on day 57
Yes both anxiety coupled with the heart palpitations. It is like I am paying for all those many years of suppression.
How to fix it?
Well I don't want this to be a case of the blind leading the blind as I am currently dealing with these issues but the first and foremost thing is to completely quit PMO and not to relapse as the symptoms will only get worse. I also mean quitting Psubs and fantasy that will eventually lead to relapse. Following this is to give your body time to heal, this varies between people as in my case I am much better than I was twenty days ago as it relates to my heart, shortness of breath and other related symptoms but my anxiety is more easily triggered and apparent these days. To deal with the latter I have been studying spiritual and reboot material everyday, also listening to relaxing meditation music and guided breathing exercises. Also, Taichi and Qigong are exercises that have been recommended to me and help in a way due to my body's state of not being able to handle strenuous exercise like it once could. I use binaural beats, healing music and spiritual videos to help calm my body while I am trying to sleep and keep asleep. This is where I am in my own recovery from these issues and hopes it helps. I can say the first days were the roughest and scariest, waking up with a racing heart beat is no bueno but I haven't had this shock get up in a while and hopefully it stays so as we make our way to recovery.
Question, in your last PMO experiences did you mentally binge/edge on P for hours before actual release?
No i dont edge or binge for hours, I never edged at all I dont see the point I also dont binge.
It will pass.
So do I, but in a lesser way. However, I have a lot of inferiority complexes since I way a little boy, for so many reasons that took mostly all life long.
Anyway, even thanks to Nofap, I have the possibily of growing up and to be stronger. So don't desperate, it's just the beginning yours! (because it's probably mine too)
If you were to rewire an airplane cockpit, all kinds of flashing lights and warning alarms would sound.. think of your brain the same way.. you are re wiring your brain. when the anxiety hits.. do not fight it.. expect and accept. Even ask for more. This will strip the fear from the sensation and it will pass shortly.
Deep breathing in through the nose, hold for 3 to 5 seconds and exhale, repeat until it passes.
Also flicking your wrist with your middle finger can stop the production of adrenaline in your body and help reduce heart beat, respiration, perspiration etc
And sometimes, just sit down, take a minute and tell yourself to chill the f&@k out.
That's interesting... You know, I never had a great reputation of myself, and that's what conducts me to a kind of mania for perfectionism in my job. The result is that I'm unable to love myself, and of consequence I'm lacking for the main prority for loving others...
The key of all our (my) issues is to accept what we are, and that's pretty hard to do it well.
Yes, anxiety will be there for a good few weeks and continue for awhile. Like previous posters said, you are rewiring the brain and your nervous system takes an enormous hit from PMO. Your body needs to adjust without PMO. It will pass. Mine lasted for a couple of months but it is there ever so slightly. Exercising helps me tremendously as well to keep it down. Practice mindfulness as you get better as well..
My new obsession is PSSD which I may or may not have but keeps me from enjoying life.
I deal with anxiety all days of my life... I haven't been able to quit and my largest streak was 5 days... You can follow my journey here https://www.nofap.com/forum/index.p...olic-need-help-follow-my-thread.231195/page-2 I'm also trying to get completely sober
What about breathing exercises?
