Wet dream doubt

Do you lose the benefits of nofap after a wet dream? Should I end my streak?

#2

End streak? No its inconscient. It isnt a relapse.
Lose benefits? Yes, some benefits come for semen retention. But there are many others which not.

As far what I believe is wet dream means it’s a Break of streak but that doesn’t means you lost. You’ll lose in this war when you volunterly relapse. Now that you had a wet dream you forget about it and start a new streak , with keeping those non relapsed days in arrears, which means that days will be count for your streak personally that means you will still be taking into account of those non relapsed days before the wet dream into account for only the sake of yourself and in order to keep up your self esteem. And at the same time you start a new streak.
Don’t give up, cause you’re already a winner when you started no fap.
And don’t quit and success is hard and it ain’t gonna be achieved easily it requires sacrifice.

I disagree with @krishvamsi30.
If it’s an involuntary wet dream, I would not consider it a relapse.
I would only count intended actions as a relapse.
Best of luck!

Well, even you had it done involuntarily or intentionally relapsed, the process consist of the sane natural release of the dirt out of your junk which will have the same impact as of when you intentionally jerked off, your mind stimulates something illusionary which is not true but you create it in your mind. Anyhow both have the same health impact. Your main aim is to stay out of jerking off, cause it was severely impacting your health and mental process, which your body doesn’t inhabitat. And even was damaging your confidence level. Your wet dreams will stop in a week or two after a serious no fap streak.
So I conclude wet dreams are considers as a relapse or a lose of streak. But you shouldn’t give up.

I had strange dream i consider as a wet dream, but I does not feel like it was a dream. It was like I masturbated in my sleeps. Is that possible? I don’t feel like my penis has been used…

I absolutely disagree with that.
In my opinion we are battling a serious mental problem and not just trying to get a fancy new lifestyle. The problem is the deliberate release of dopamine through watching porn and masturbating. Either for suppressing mental problems, stress, tiredness, boredom and basically any uncomfortable feeling.

Our problem is not that we lose semen. the problem is WHY we lose semen. it’s the dopamine which lets us forget our bad day, our problems with girls and so on.

Sure, I don’t like wet dreams either but you are making this journey so much harder if you reset your counter after one. You will hate yourself for something you can’t really change. You punish yourself for something natural which isn’t really a part of your problem.

Nope…I don’t think so

#10

could you explain? what do you don’t agree with and why?

#11

It’s sign of cleaning prostrate on autopilot in other words naturally. When we do M we clean it manually. You will not lose benefits until u become addicted or till not manage healthy distance of m habit. As per my experience it’s intensively hard manage healthy distance therefore better to avoid m as long u wish.

A wer dream dont modify the dopamine lvls. Porn does.
So having a wet dream wont affect your brain reset.

It depends on what type of nofap are you doing.
If you were doing semen retention for its benefitts like higer testosrerome or more energy, you lost all that benefits by eyaculating.
But if you where trying to rewire your dopamine levels (90 days of nofap) it doesnt affect.

No it’s a natural phenomenon… Don’t end your streak you are doing awesome

But… Isn’t it the same as relapsing on purpose… Only difference is that it’s involuntary. Your brain is still feeling the surge of dopamine as if it were porn. It’s a damn relapse. And what’s worst is that you can’t even control it! :man_shrugging:t4:

I don’t think it’s a relapse. I mean, I used to have wet dreams away before I started fapping and I guess nocturnal emission is just the body’s way of letting off a load! I think you should carry on with your streak without restarting because you’ve worked so hard so far and a little nightfall shouldn’t hurt that goal ! Cheers

No, You dont lose benefits of Nofap. Actualy in my case the benefits increased.

Wet Dream is expelling the prostate juice. Your body is taking care of your health. Its like a House Cleaning. You have eaten something unhealthy and it is expelled out. Or the negative energy is washed out. Consider it as a Detox in Nofap because by years of fapping you have destroyed your pipes. Now its a Reboot and as the process goes on wet dreams will keep on decreasing over the years. There is no fixed amount of sperms stored in your testies. Sperms have a life like all body cells. Dead sperms are often washed out in pee or involuntary ejaculation to keep fresh sperms ready to reproduce and make a baby. Consider it as man periods

Wet dream does not shock your central Nervous System like actual sex/masturbation does

Never, its an excuse your mind is making to make you fall big time.

@krishvamsi30 With all due respect, you are seriously misinformed. Can you please take my suggestion to read some literature on the topic on this site and on the NoFap site, to understand the real issues involved? In any case, you are free to have your pet theories, but please don’t peddle them as established knowledge to those who are confused.

Nocturnal emissions are not harmful but instead signal a return to health. It means the body’s natural intelligence is allowed to regain control, rather than the repetition compulsions of addiction caused by the porn industry.

@BreakingTheHabit The problem is not increase in dopamine (in any case there is no surge in dopamine of the kind there is in viewing porn), but the linkage between porn and dopamine levels. The problem is that your body/brain have become dependent on porn for high dopamine levels , due to which you feel withdrawal/depression in the absence of porn.

The goal is to break the psychological link of dopamine with consumption of porn, so that you can feel good and calm naturally and at all times. Your wet dreams indicate that this is happening, so congratulations on your achievement.

I had the same doubt previously, but for all purposes wet dream is the only exception for not breaking the streak as long as you didn’t touch yourself and it’s a genuine wet dream.

It’s essentially your body getting rid of dead sperms. The streak continues, just don’t masturbate after thinking it’s over, it’s not!
