    Yeah, I never understood the point of these nofap movements if you just substitute it with some other addiction like binge watching or doomscrolling social media. It seems like treating a symptom instead of a disease. If you fill your life with fulfilling interactions with people, hobbies and passions, you won’t even have the time for harmful addictions.

      Those things would be part of a positive feedback loop, and it might not be able to be the first part. The ability to enjoy them is reduced until the brain is fully healed from the addiction.
