    -Extreme feels of loneliness
    -Even more extreme feel of loss of ego. It's like you had a real world of reasons, why you're good, where you're good, that you're a real person and have a plan for future, but now it's all gone, lost, I feel like I'm mister no-one. I'm feeling totally empty, like my personality doesn't have a single good aspect, I'm just crying to my friends how hard it is for me and that I don't know what to do with my problems...
    -Depression.
    -No more quick mood swings, but more slow and hard mood swings - whole 4 days of sadness, whole 4 days of "meh" days etc.
    -difficulty falling asleep and getting up from bed(I had a routine doing "it" before sleep and after waking up)
    -a lot less dreams, just plain sleep without dreaming

    Is it strange that I'm on 40th+ day and I still didn't get blue balls or whatever it's called? I don't even know what it is XD what makes me really feel it didn't happen to me!(answer me to personal messages, if you can, thank you)

    For me if I’m 100% honest I’m feeling (on day 11)

    • Depression
    • Anxiety
    • Loneliness
    • Sadness
    • Irritability
    • Irrational thoughts
    • Headaches
    • Hard to sleep
    • Urges to touch myself and rationalizing that it’s ok (like “its comfortable to sleep with my hands down there”)
    • Sexual obsession
    • Increased sexual thoughts
    • When out in public staring at girls and having sexual thoughts
    • Everything has a sexual subconscious thought attached to it.
    • Memories of different porn I’ve looked at.
    • Internal rationalization of my addiction and what I’ve looked at. (Really quick fleeting thoughts that happen randomly saying things like “it’s not that bad” or “you can control this, just look a little”

    I’m new to the forum but I have about 3 months under my belt. I have experienced IBS symptoms pretty seriously. I have ibs in general but it has been quite bad because of this abstinence from p. It has also came with extreme anxiety and an irrational fear of having a stomach illness at work. Also experienced depression, regret, feelings of emptiness and self hate. Also IBS has gotten slightly better lately. I had to change my diet a bit and take expensive probiotics.

    I'm on day 5 of straight anxiety myself. Absolutely sucks. I'm on day 55, first 40 sucked with horrible insomnia, then days 41-50 were actually OK, sleeping etc. Then massive anxiety and insomnia again the last 5. Sucks much bad

    I've had a few nightmares about watching porn and/or masturbating excessively since starting my reboot.

    Thought I could add more,

    1- More sensitive
    2- Lazy
    3- Life seems pointless
    4- No goals
    5- Noticeable sleepy face "often"
    6- Seeing others as successful ones while thinking you can't be like them
    7- Inability to sleep well "only in the first week in my case", I could sleep but woke up lazy as hell
    8- Things used to chill you out "games for ex" seems boring !
    9- Anxiety "this one was the hardest" thank god it went away
    10- Pain in muscles specially legs and back


    Most of this symptoms are because dopamine levels are screwed, give it some time

    Had to add a new one I just experienced on day 32 of sobriety.

    Incredibly vivid sex dreams.

    It felt 100% real, like I was actually there and I think my body was physically reacting to the dream. Then I had 2 less vivid sex dreams after that, so a whole night of this. It was definitely a wrestles night for me.

    Days 70-80

    • periodic panic attacks (chest tight, short of breath, fearful thoughts)
    • severe anxiety
    • feeling worthless/hopeless
    • difficulty concentrating
    • depersonalization and feeling isolated / anti-social
    • intense fearful thinking (I'm going to lose my job, my fiance, etc)
    • chills (feel very cold past few days - which is weird because I usually run very hot)
    • shakiness
    • nervous eating / loss of appetite
    • Can't watch TV or listen to music without feeling scared
    • Feelings of inadequacy and inferiority
    • Thinking "I can't"

      This is pure brutality.

    Insomnia
    Hypersomnia
    Intrusive thoughts
    Anxiety
    Depression
    Wet Dreams
    Irritablity
    Brain Fog
    Loss of energy
    Random energy surges

    I don't know whether these are directly correlated to withdrawal and not other personal factors, but that's what I have and am experiencing.

    That's a great improvement in 10+ days. Congratulations! I started nofap two days ago. I hope I can make it to 10+ and eventually 30 days, which is my goal. And I really hope I feel the positive changes.
