Night sweats
« on: October 13, 2012, 09:50:42 PM »
For the past month my bed has been soaked in my sweat, I've read that it could be due to low testosterone levels but that's impossible. Since I stopped masturbating to porn my drive has only gone up to workout and to meet and talk to women.

anyone experiencing this?

No but I used to. I wish I could say why they went away but i'm really not too sure. All I can say is that I was getting them when I PMO'd but since discovering YBOP etc they have mostly stopped.

I think it may have to do with caffeine, I'm going to cut it out completely see if anything changes.

Yeah I used to get this, but this was before I was trying to quit PMO. I think it was due to anxiety, and having anxious thoughts at night. This would also mean that you'd struggle to sleep and would not have a deep sleep.

You should realise that anxiety is cause by P addiction but is also self escalating, in that you can get more and more anxious about being anxious. You have to be able to reduce stress....... so exercise, massages, avoiding stressful situations, and if your muscles are tight due to stress get someone at the gym to show you exercises to stretch your muscles and reduce them being tight.

Also if you are having trouble sleeping I'd suggest melatonin tablets, but use them infrequently and in a controlled way. You don't want to be dependant/addicted to something else. Oh and cut down on alcohol and caffeine!

If you don't think it is anxiety then ignore me!

I agree. I'm going through this now. 1 month sleeping badly. I'm going to the doctor on monday to help me sleep again.

But I'm  sure it's from anxiety caused by quitting PMO.

Not for me.....i happen to be a caffeine addict lol. 500ml of rockstar energy drink a day. I can drink a red bull half an hour before bed.

A few people have mentioned anxiety and I think this has a large role to play. Havent been particularly anxious for a while and not had night sweats for a while
