    Today, I've been experiencing very low energy. I didn't sleep well last night either, but I feel like part of it is related to not PMOing. Is this a "normal" symptom, or at least one that happens to some people? My teacher actually pointed it out to me after class that I had low energy and that I looked like I might be sick. Is this legit NoFap recovery or not likely?

    I get the opposite effect. I get very low energy levels when fapping and very good ones when I haven't fapped for a couple of days. It might be related to not sleeping well...

    Normally I do too but this attempt at rebooting's been so much different than my other ones, in several ways. Everything is way more emotional and I feel like I'm at life's mercy right now. Still not fapping though!

    It is possible that without PMO you have become more aware of your low energy. If you didn't sleep well the night before then that's the most likely cause of your low energy. Try paying more attention to your sleep schedule. Try to avoid a lot of physical activity (such as a workout) before bedtime as that will energize you and will make it hard to fall asleep later. Try to keep your room as dark, quiet, and comfortable as possible while falling asleep and only use your bed for sleep (or sex if you have someone over and aren't on hard mode) as you need your bed to remind you of sleep when the time comes to sleep. Hang in there!

    I'm not sure, but in my experience I usually hit a brief flat line a little bit after a week of not jerking off. That's probably what you're going through and it's what I'm going through right now. Also, the whole point of not jerking off is to be able to feel completely different about life than when you do jerk off. There are higher highs and lower lows. Compounding your sexual energy just lets you be more aware of your moods. Like the quote in my signature says, you can't be more sensitive to pleasure without also becoming more sensitive to suffering.

    Stay strong.

    Thank you all for your replies. My low energy has been lifting, I think. And MysterMagi, CONGRATS ON YOUR 90 DAYS!!!! You're the first person I've actually seen with a complete counter on here. Way to go!
