    Hi guys. I just started rebooting and just completd my day 11. Buti noticed intense negative feelings in the past 3 days. I feel depressed and sad. Is that a normal feeling through rebooting? Or is it something non related to nofap and i have to solve it separately?

    Its completely normal when your brain is healing itself. Get ready for some mood swings in your journey. Stay strong :)

    Unfortunately, yes. Very common withdrawal symptom. I'm experiencing it as well at the moment. Recovery sucks badly sometimes.

    Just my thought but i dont think nofap itself is causing those negative feelings. My view on it is that many of us use porn as an escape from our problems we face in life, thus when we embark on NoFap, those negative feelings are not soothed by porn and thus the negative emotions amplifies. Give some thoughts or whether you have any unaddressed life issues which might contribute to those feelings.

    I'm with you. I've felt absolutely terrible the last couple days as well. One thing I'm trying right now to deal with anxiety is something called "coherent breathing". It's basically just very slow breathing. Seems to be helping a little bit.
