Does any of you have sexual dreams after a week or 10days of abstinence? I just had my second weird dream yesterday, I was watching a show and when went to sleep I dreamed of one the actors swimming naked in a pool. It happens to me all the time and it’s usually the reason why I relapse . I was wondering if the same happens to you?
It’s very common, infact I got one yesterday. You can try distracting yourself whenever you do remember the dream. You should do whatever method works for you to do this. Dwelling on the dream can lead to relapse. But I will say that distractions only work sometimes and we can’t always be distracted. It’s much more productive to change the way you think about it. Maybe telling yourself “ha, I’m making progress. Look my brain is trying to get me to go back to porn. Never again” can help.
In my case, i know it will go away. I observed the time and for me usually it’s gone after one day. So, within these time frame i use any method that helps me from relapsing.
I also try to avoid thinking about it myself. If my mind starts thinking about it saying ‘cancel cancel’ stops the thought for me. Picked up this psychological trick from google.
After the time have passed things go back to normal.
Yes this happens most of time. My last relapse was due to this. In dreamt about a movie actress and in that dream I found myself doing sexual activity. I don’t know how to control my actions in such dreams. I think you need to understand you are in dream and become aware about what you are doing.
Best way is to avoid watching movie right before sleeping. Or clearing head half hour early before sleeping.
Ohh boi the worst ones are coming, the sweaty erotic ones:sweat: these are the worst. I can handle seeing naked men in my dreams, but the ones where I get aroused and shit make it really difficult for me to resist
You’ve got this @luluane. You could do 40 days before. You’ve got this!

Hello Luluane. I’m almost a week in nofap & last night i had my first sexual dream (i dream vividly every single night since nofap). I feel you, it was a veird dream for me aswell. Mine included one of my exes who was a really sensual and teasing girl, it was really hard to “waste” the good morning wood, but I did it, phew. I swear, this dream every day thing, i love it, it’s sooo motivating, even if my dreams are fucked up :)) Good luck and see you around.
