Hi friends,

So i got a wet dream this night...really strange because I think I have never had that in my life. Is wet dreams good or bad? Is it a relapse?

Things are going good for now, I have a good balance. I work out three times a week, heavy weight lifting, I meditate like 10min a day, and I listen more to myself. If I want to cry, I cry, if I want to laugh I laugh. It seems to me that this journey isnt so much about the goal, but it is the journey itself that is the goal.

Hi Borshajen

Wet dreams should not be a problem unless you have a strong chaser effect. Watch yourself closely for the next few days and be careful if it gets too difficult to control. It's good that you are meditating. I would recommend meditating at the time when you are most likely to be horny. I know there are some days when you are horny 24 hours, haha. Anyways what day are you on? and what happened to you fat cat?

Dont worry. If you are like

Dont worry. If you are like me, the emergence of wet dreams might be a sign of the healing process. I rarely ever got wet dreams until I started to reboot. They started showing up between weeks 4 to 6. now that I am about 5 or more months sober from porn, I get wet dreams a lot more frequently, along with morning and spontaneous erections of course :). However, the wet dreams started occurring long before I was getting any significant mechanical results from the reboot. All a wet dream is is one of the ways that your brain regulates testosterone at night. It could be that excessive sexual stimulation (porn and porn fantasy) had been causing me to be too desensitized to have wet dreams from T spikes at night until I started to reboot IDK. I agree that you should beware the chaser effect, especially if you ejaculate from one of your wet dreams. And you might feel a bit foggy the next day, but dont worry.

That was something that

That was something that either gary or marnia said on one of the blogs and it seemed plausible to me. I don't see how it is an odd hypothesis though. T being the hormone that increases your desire (not necessarily your sensitivity) for sex, and T levels being elevated during sleep, it doesn't seem to be a stretch that the spike would induce a wet dream, which, especially if you ejaculate, might cause a return to baseline. Its certainly not MY theory and it was certainly not the point of my reply to the original post. I was simply trying to tell the guy that he shouldn't be worried about wet dreams from the reboot/rewire perspective and that it may well be a sign that his sensitivity is going up. I apologize for using "is" instead of "maybe" or "perhaps" in regards to this particular point.
