I've had problems sleeping my whole life; the further I get into the reboot, the better I sleep. I take melatonin each night to help me fall asleep.

Yeah I still have trouble sleeping. I go to bed a to 10:30 but I usually don't fall asleep till 12:30 to 1:00. Apparently if you have nothing going on in your mind it's easier to sleep. Also, using your computer or TV before sleep keeps you up longer cause of something to do with the monitor. I'm hypocritical cause I haven't tried it myself.

Yeah, you have to shut down your mind in order to fall asleep. If you are prone to rumination, falling asleep is very difficult. Meditation helps a lot with this. Counting breaths helps a lot (1 for an in-breath, 1 for an out-breath, 2 for an in-breath, 2 for an out-breath, etc.).

I'd like to say that I have gotten to two months, but I have not. My withdrawals are INSANELY intense. Ive been trying to NOFAP completely for 10 months and I am slightly shsamed to say i've gotten 15 days without at the longest. Although, I fapping far less in the big picture. Anyways, Insomnia is my worst withdrawal symptom. In the last 10 months when I've been on a stretch without porn I would go a week with a couple hours of very low quality sleep each night and I'd be tossing and turning with hyper sensitive gear and intense cravings for porn, plus low moods/anxiety, this dry restless leg feeling moving through my body- a deep boredom that seemed to be all the way into my bones etc. As i grew more and more exhausted yet still unable to sleep, i'd sometimes relapse intentionally because the insomnia was really messing with my head. On a positive note, i've been relentless with my attempts to quit, as soon as i'd relapse i'd immediately go back to recovery, over and over. Despite being a constant slipper, my withdrawals dueing periods of abstinence are getting progressively weaker despite periodic relapses. I am 10 days no fap right now and my withdrawals are almost nonexistent compared to earlier months when I was new to no fap (i have been an aggressive porn user since i am 12 and am now 26, so the addictive pathways run deep) and going completely insane with unbearable discomfort. Insomnia has really quieted too. I've been sleeping fairly deep, although some light withdrawal symptoms are there. ps Congrats on two months, that's a dream for me lol. But my constant getting back into recovery despite slipping has been progress and I can feel it. I bet this time I will have my record length of no fap, and hopefully permanently have no more porn in my life (I truly want it gone forever, I see it as a burden, and being without it has already brought benefits- better focus motivation, less depression- despite episodes of withdrawals). Also, resisting insomnia is futile, when I flow with it and use it for productivity despite my brain telling me how horrible tmrw will be without sleep, when I start doing things reading, working, jornal, walking around, my body wants sleep again. If not, its better than laying in bed suffering. Good luck

Hi
What you are experiencing is very common which has happened the same with me.
After starting hard 90 reboot process my insomnia was gone for two weeks and i even got my morning wood back. I havent had morning wood for years before that time.  BUT after the first month i got my insomnia back.
The reason behind it was, i got hit by my first flatline. That was the reason. I had started seeing withdrawn symptoms.
This only got better between my 80 to 90 days. Maybe because i was not proactive and i was lethargic.

So i am telling you this is perfectly fine. It is the part of the process. And know that there will be many flatlines in your journey. Some will take longer and some will be short. But after the end of it, you will surely thank god that you did take this challenge and rebooted. Feeling of being normal and in control is off the roof. It is much better than being addicted.

Be confident. You will get there.

I have completed my 90 days. And i think i have got my sensitivity around 60% back. I can have erection easily but no orgasm. But i think i have to go on like this. It took gabe 10 months to recover. I hope i get there soon. And wish you be confident. Even after 90 days you may need to go on. Or you may recover easily. Everyone is different. Every reboot is different.
Wish you luck. BanPorn
