I've tried a few times

First time, I relapsed after 5 days
Then after 12 days
Then had a once a day thing for like 4 days
Then went off for 17 days
Then had another once a day thing for a few days
Then i went off of it for 8 days before going back again

I'm kind of weaning off for the most part

The thing is I wasn't even satisfied with masturbating to pornography. I was more satisfied with getting closer to girls around day 5/6 especially so

Is it just a flatline thing?

As a side note if it is a flatline thing, for some reason whenever I do relapse it's during a flatline period...not sure exactly why

It's normal

for guys to show a brief period of big improvement when they quit...and then flatline for weeks...and then gradually return to solid, more stable balance. Not sure what's going on, but it's often part of the process. Guess the brain tries some tricks before it seriously goes through the rebooting process.
