Postby zzzz » Sun Sep 01, 2019 9:30 am

Day 53 today for me feel much better just a little bit of anxiety although the mind needs abit more time to clear up. Ive started to feel dizzy which i didnt have before

Physical symptoms pain in my back stomach have increased abit but no that much.

Libido has increased not that much but its noticeable. Erections are still weak but i can feel they are getting better. Lets see how the next 50 days go.

@zzzz what you are going through is completely normal, you will have ups and downs. For me it was mostly downs for a long time. after day 90 or so things started getting back to normal for the most part. Just take a deep breath and remember this wont last and it will go away.

I am on day 148 as of today and I can tell you things get much better! I still have low libido and trouble sleeping but nothing nearly as bad as before. I would say you are really at the height of PAWS, seems to peak around 2-3 months in...

I dont have erection issues but I do have low libido. Erection issues are common though, not everyone will get them but most people will struggle sexually overall. Our brains just need time to regain their equilibrium and sexual activity is extremely neurologically active. The amount of chemical reactions that happen during sexual encounters are taxing on our recovering brains. This includes masturbation, I would honestly avoid sex and masturbating for a while...

That being said, try not to worry about it too much, I understand you are having anxiety and its next to impossible to calm your mind but just remember things will pass...

If you want some peace of mind, just get a general check up from your doctor, you will most likely be totally fine.

Glad I could help, I did not nor have I ever had that feeling. I would recommend getting a check-up with your doctor.

Getting checked out and nothing being found would give you peace of mind like I said before.

Yes, it's normal. It's due to the sudden loss of constant flooding of your brain with dopamine. Dopamine is required for erections. Dead/lifeless/shrunken penis is common during withdrawals not only from cannabis, but also massive dopamine producing things such as porn and fapping. I'm on day 140 of nofap, and have just once again started the process of eliminating THC out of my brain and life. It's all about RE-sensitizing those d2 dopamine receptors.

To rewire the brain back to baseline can take up to a year+.... some quicker than others (3-6months) but some slower than others (18 months+).

I'm happy to help. We're all in this together and I found this thread because i'm looking for support too and think I find the right place!

My sexual exhaustion ED made me start NoFap nearly 5 months ago, and then when I realized that my cannabis usage was backfiring, I decided to take major action.

This is all normal @zzz.

Im at 6.5 months (192 days). 2 weeks ago I finally had a full week with normal libido!

I thought I was set - but then last week it went away again. And Ive been a week with low libido (and erection problems). It sucks. I do also feel very numb down there sometimes; when Im trying to get aroused.

Sometimes I will have a high libido like I used to but it goes as fast as it comes (no pun intended). Most of the time I just flat out am not interested in sex. But like we have said before just best to not worry about it so much and do a nofap/nosex for a while...
