Needless to say I think I've fallen into a minor depression. My weightlifting goals have stalled and I struggle to get out of bed every morning or sleep less than nine hours a night. I have trouble maintaining a conversation with anybody, or being interested in anything, even drinking and smoking. It's pretty fucked. I'm not sure what's going on. My guess is that it's SAD + porn withdrawal.

Depending on how long you've been using, and I'm talking from personal experience being a user of 20 years since the age of 8 on a daily basis, the depressions I've suffered while ceasing usage have varied from extreme black depressions to semi-pleasant melancholia, but the good news is it clears at around 30 days, and then if you continue your no-fap streak, it can return at various times depending on your current state, stress levels, and diet. Everyone happens to be different with their reboots, but this happens to be my own personal experience, so do take it with a grain of salt. My longest streak was 109 days and I kick myself for indulging and rubbing one out. I've rebooted at least 20 times in the past year and a half. It's an uphill struggle, broski.
