    So here's the thing that keeps most of us in a bad mood. I noticed that being horny =/= wanting to reach orgasm. The first one being a natural and a healthy process unlike the other one. Knowing that your brain during orgasm resembles a brain on heroin.
    I began my recovery about 3.5 months ago, the first 2 weeks I've had some intense and painful headaches which coming to think about it those must be the same withdrawals of a junkie cutting on substance.. MO+PMO for years, brain being exposed to immense amounts of dopamine during adolescence, the phase where your dopamine level is already high because of how novel things are perceived during this time. Add to it losing dopamine receptors and going through your 20's and still keeping the same habit, basically killing your brain.

    This is what indicates to me that I'm still in that ''dopamine craving phase'', take note that I MO'd in a total fo 3 times during my 3.5 months reboot and MO is totally eliminated until a complete recovery:
    - I can FEEL my brain calling out for orgasm When it should be more natural
    - There's a slight feeling of throwing up
    - Headaches
    - Shitty ass mood and mood swings


    It would be helpful to get some insights from those who have TOTALLY recovered and get their part if they recognize what I'm talking about.

    I guess that is a crucial step to overcome because brain seems frozen and unproductive. Just like being hungry, my brain doesn't want to indulge in everyday's fun activities and they seem so foreign and unwanted. As if the only thing that could be pleasing, a dose of dopamine. It's all related: low energy, unmotivated, depressed. A hijacked brain is what's left. Time to get it back.
