    I once reached a 14 day +- nofap streak and suddenly started crying with no outside influence or thoughts is this a coincidence or is porn addiction/ fapping numbing our emotions?

    This could be a symptom of the NoFap flatline, PMO can make you feel numb to your emotions and rebooting is resetting your mind and body to a place where you are a lot more sensitive to the world, and able to feel your emotions again, the flatline will cause you to go up and down in terms of mood, emotional well-being and mental stability, the process can feel uncomfortable in the moment, but after that weird feeling begins to go you will experience a clearer mind, one where you have more control over your emotions and will start to feel the world more deeply... And it’s okay to feel more emotion during a reboot, it’s most likely a sign that you are resetting successfully... ☺️

    But shitter than relapsing? That feeling for me is the worst pain imaginable... The uncomfortable feeling will pass, you have to just hang on in there and eventually your flatline will balance out, I’m going through the same experience, it’s not pleasant and I feel depression, anxiety, fatigue all at once, but I’m distracting myself though it... After a few hours of facing it head on it does pass, you have to just be aware your experiencing a flatline and do as much research on the NoFap forums as you can, so you can learn how others are dealing with it... There’s also some great books/audiobooks on the subject, buy them and learn about the biological reasons of how porn addiction effects the mind and body...

    Relapsing doesnt feel shit at all to be honest its just not smart if you want to abstain, doing nofap however gets me very irritated.
