Thanks bro. That’s a different way to look at the problem. I didn’t thought that way.
@anon65589122 This is not unique to you. It happened with me. I think this is flatline or withdrawal symptoms. I used to sleep like a drugged person…lost libido…used to get angry without reason…brain fog…used to cry thinking about past…mistakes…lost opportunities…
But, Good thing is that it will pass away if you don’t give up.
you are not alone im also going through lots of self doubt. that feeling sucks
Just observe these negative thoughts. These are just thoughts, it’s not true.
You need to learn mindfulness meditation techniques.
You can read this good book on the subject, based on CBT, how to overcome negative thoughts.
Listen to Overcoming Unwanted Intrusive Thoughts by Sally M. Winston PsyD, Martin N. Seif PhD on Audible. https://www.audible.com/pd/1684036933?source_code=ASSOR150021921000V
Scientific explanation correlating with NoFap :-
Dopamine = Happiness Hormone.
Brain secretes dopamine when a person does PMO.
With NoFap going on, which means no PMO, which means no Dopamine secretion. Which ultimately means No Happiness.
Thus giving a sense of loneliness, low self esteem etc.
To deal with it :- you must build self-motivation habits, self improvement habits, enjoy your own company habits, make yourself happy bexause no one else is going to do it for you habits. You are the reason why your brain is asking for PMO induced dopamine, so you have to substitute it with something better. Teach your brain to be happy and satisfied with what you have and what you are going through, loneliness is also good, one can use it to improve self qualities (thus contributing towards long term + future satisfaction and happiness)
All these are long term process, which leads to the secretion of seratonin , which is long term reward system.
Also Dopamine = Short term reward system
So when a person is done with the PMO act, no Dopamine secretions thus he feels guilty and depressed.
Have also experieenced it don’t know why it’s happened but it means that it’s working. Thanks for sharing.
