Brain Fog and resisting NoFap
« on: June 16, 2017, 02:00:21 AM »
So... I'm 6 days in and my mind is playing tricks on me. Im having sexual dreams that are quite chaotic. This NoFap business is clearly having an impact on a psychological level.

Oddly enough I find myself interested in reading and study for the first time in a while and have dug out my Nietzsche books and am enjoying them. But there seems to be rather a mix going on as I fluctuate between increased clarity and utter brain fog in which my totrured mind strives to return to the gutter. It's funny but before doing this NoFap, I had no idea what was meant by "brain fog" but over the last few days I have experienced it in no uncertain terms. I become aware of it as if heavy clouds were interspersed with breaks and the sunlight breaks through and illuminates me for shorter or longer periods.

In a way, an addiction is like being possesed by a demon. It offers you a short term reward in return for your soul. If you are now aware of your soul, it seems like a good deal. After years of life with no soul, I endeavour to reclaim my soul and tear up the contract with the devil that I had been duped into signing. NOW the value of my soul is in the light of understanding and I see the heavy price I continue to pay. The demon wants to keep it's contract in vigour and whispers in my ear to keep the contract alive. It offers me troubled sleep and mutters lustful comments about every woman who crosses my path.

After such a short time, the super power of which long time NoFappers speak is visible on the horizon. YouTube is full of people who uphold or debunk the idea of the super powers, but I can see them shining albeit at a distance.

Starve the demon. Soon he will lose interest and bother someone else.
Time for a big change

Same here. Never understood what brain fog is until I felt my IQ dropping like below 50.

Starting with Nietzsche again, nice! Do you have a particular book you can recommend?
The brain fog is crazy, it seizes you without you even knowing it.
Do you have a journal by the way?

All the best,

The genealogy of Morals is great. It explains how concepts of good and evil have been inverted over the centuries.

Probably, though, Thus Spoke Zarathustra is the best. It can be tough reading though. In my opinion, a person should read about Nietzsche or watch documentaries about him before reading... if they dont want their brain to explode that is.





That said, Nietzsche empowers his readers. His words can give you superpowers. I love him.

My brain fog is terrible. I feel like i also honestly lose IQ points. Having crappy memory and concentration is the worse part of it.

Not just brain fog it gives to us. Also loss of concentration and loss of interest on other things.

Yup. Same here. I am an economics student. I memorized thousands of facts and formulas over the years without any effort. I play piano also. I learned many short and long pieces from Bach, Beethoven, Chopin etc. over the years. Now I cant remember anything and can't focus on anything. My IQ was certainly above average, that is for sure. Now I feel completely retarded. And that is after 7 months of no porn. I masterbated twice though after 100 days.
