probably. but I don't know that ADHD has a morality of any type , good or bad affiliated with it
Yeah, I've def had trouble with the inability to regulate emotions and sustain goal-directed behavior. I don't know how many nights I've wanted to work on some kind of project and then I ended up surfing the web instead. Those little dopamine hits really seem to be more appealing to me than the average person. I think minor dopamine addiction is a characteristic of ADHD, based on what I've observed in myself.

Yeah, I agree with all that. It drives me and people close to me crazy when I have trouble regulating emotions and inhibiting behavior that interferes with functioning and future goals.

As for dopamine, I'm handing my Facebook password back over to my best friend now that my birthday has passed. It was nice getting all those birthday wishes, but there's definitely an addictive quality to all those little dopamine spikes each time I got a message or a "like" on my thank you post. The crazy thing is, in the real world those things really mean nothing in the end, although it is nice that so many people whose lives I've touched or intersected with since way back when thought enough of me to reach out that way on my bday.

Re: Porn/Massterbation Addiction

Sometimes as much as I hate ADHD it's a blessing because I still can get happy and excited over the small details like a like or birthday wish etc.

Re: Porn/Massterbation Addiction

Has anyone had some success with NoFap?

I’m on day 33 but I don’t think it’s helped my depression or ADHD thus far.
