NAC for Impulsivity/Addiction

Thought I’d share as I’ve been working on some personal goals lately and found my experience interesting although not unheard of.

I’ve never understood ‘addiction’ much in terms of the psychological portion. I’ve used recreational drugs responsibly for years and never had a problem with addiction or interfering with life and have gone through prescription medication withdraws no problem when needed due to physical addiction (opiates and benzos after injures).

That said, I have struggled massively with impulsivity typically in the form of sex/sex addiction which has been frustrating beyond belief given my typical self control and generally logical mindset. Have seen several therapists for professional help as well as peruses other support methods.

Interestingly I’ve found that NAC massively decreases impulsivity and generalized drive to the point of making bad decisions. I’ve taken it in and out of my supplement regiment multiple times with extremely noticeable effects and changes within a 48 hour period either way.

The main downside I’ve experienced is a lack of drive when taking it (fml can’t havw the best of both worlds) to the point where I’m uninterested 80% of the time (as opposed to feeling like its a constant NEED). Not that things don’t work when they need to, just that there isn’t much noticeable interest.

Definitely a cheap option I’d recommend trying though for those struggling to the point of addiction/impulsivity interfering with day to day life.

Abilify/Aripiprazole is a great med to control impulsivity. Probably the best there is for this condition. It's an antypsychotic but it acts more as a dopamine balancer than as a dopamine blocker like the other antypsychotics. So no prolactin elevation issues neither. Only look into this if your impulsivity issues are severe though. You don't want to be on a heavy med like this unless it's really necessary.

Porn addiction is a far greater public (mental) health issue than sex addiction

I was never much of a porn guy but I've got a fleshlight that I use. Need to buy more lube for it. I'd say it more than pays for itself in the long run.


It's like methadone to me in the sense that I don't even think about sex or bitches at all if I get a good one off like twice a week.

i have or have had tendencies towards every sort of "addictive" behavior or substance most can think of and in my experience sex/porn are harder/more of a mind fuck then substances.

when i was younger i thought similar to you, and i dont like the word addiction, i feel it is misused more often then not but fuck...:eek:

its no joke, literally a mother fucker of an addiction!:eek::p

i dont think i see this aspect of nac... havent used it steady for a while but i did notice a significant difference with nac and stopping/starting tobacco.

Wellbutrin and Naltrexone for addiction...for me at least

Those 2 are for physical addiction to other substances though, they are worthless for psychological addiction like the OP has. (especially Wellbutrin since it is pro-dopaminergic which can cause the issue you're trying to treat)

Were you addicted to amphetamine/coke/heroin/opiates?

here's a case study where Naltrexone was successfully used for internet porn addiction

Funny, I was going to ironically suggest he take up opiate addiction.


Won't have to worry about sex addiction for quite a while :eek:

Dude that makes so much sense.

I started taking NAC and TUDCA a couple weeks ago. I have not really had a crazy drive to fuck my GF since I started!! I thought it was the gear, but my AI and Caber protocol is the same as its always been! I upped my NAC and TUDCA doses for the orals I'm supplementing with...

So crazy you had the same effect, although I didn't think it was from the NAC

I heard Parkinson's meds have been known to make people blow their life savings gambling.

How much NAC? Do you combine with vitamin C? I use NAC daily myself with vitamin C and my asthma is almost non existent. I love it.

You really like that fleshlight? Was thinking about getting one. Might have to open a po box just so i can order the damn thing without my lady finding out. Hell. She should pay for the po box AND the fleshlight.

I absolutely do. I actually use one from a different company that I picked up in person at a sex shop by me.

That's the one I have but there was a small variety to choose from. Idk, like I said I'm not a big porn guy so I just went with whatever but apparently they are modeled after porn star vaginas.

Make sure that you use water based lube only with no parabens. Do not go cheap on the lube trust me. Best thing to do is pour a little in, get turned on a little, then sandwich it between two pillows on your bed and pound away. To clean it just run it by some lukewarm water by the sink for a little while, dry the outside out with a towel and lube should come right off if you didn't like friction it all away by then. There's even guides online on how to warm the lube up prior to actually fucking but I haven't gone this far yet. Def wanna try it soon though. No point in wearing a condom obviously, but I do still pull out when I have sex with it just because I hate the mess.

If you get one in person they will probably try to upsell you on some over-priced alcohol based "sex toy cleaner" in like this little spray bottle. DO NOT buy this garbage because it's meant mainly for dildos and could actually damage the fleshlight. Instead you're gonna wanna go to your local supermarket and get a thing of cornstarch to extremely lightly powder it up after each wash. This will kill off any moisture and generally keep it fresh for next time.

I wouldn't recommend ordering from Fleshlight directly because they seem to be expensive as fuck. I got this one for $30 and it'll probably be even cheaper on amazon. In addition it won't be as suspicious of a package when it's covered in amazon tape. I'm sure that the Fleshlight™ itself is a lot better but I wouldn't know because this off brand one keeps me plenty satisfied. I'm rambling at this point but I literally cannot stress enough how good of an investment this was. If you're one of those people that likes to really space out the time between your ejaculations, the orgasms and that post-coital glow are both really fucking mindblowing.

One day I do wanna cop one of these life size sex bots that they're developing but unfortunately it's not in my immediate future due to finances.
