Does anyone every feel like they're suffering nappy withdrawal symptoms? I do and I think they're genuine (I say this as I know some withdrawal symptoms can be 'phantom withdrawal symptoms' or mistakenly self-diagnosed). I'm sure I fall asleep better in them (quicker as well even if I've not had the world's best day) and don't pull it off easy when my body is minus them.

Coming to the number of days (or nights if I'm going to be really honest) (or something different - see below - you're not forgotten (you know who you are)). After about three nights without nappies I am finding myself burdened with a hollow feeling (odd right - yes perhaps nappies are my drug though can you imagine going to a un-positive drug specialist and explaining your story? Issue for another thread me thinks), one that disappears when I return to 'tabs-and-plastic'. So, everyone out there - do you suffer nappy withdrawal symptoms? Have you? Do you think you will? How many days, nights or days and nights can you go without? I await answers! bringmesunshine

I do not think it is withdrawal symptoms as it can fit into two categories. The first is the Binge and purge cycle before self acceptance, and ebb and flow after self acceptance. The second is a habit reforming thing.

When I first joined the group I was wearing very devotedly and had to stop because of a surgery. I was having a very hard time not diapering. But now it is simply a desire to wear if I need too.

SO I think it is just a matter of what your wearing habit is and personal desires.

The only time I can't wear is when we have family members visiting and staying in the house. Usually I cope because I know it will end soon. I do enjoy wearing at night, and it helps me sleep. There's a feeling of being safe and sound, like when you were very young.

I don't think withdrawal is the right word. There isn't a physical dependency the way that nicotine or cocaine actually chemically imbalance the body and cause painful symptoms of withdrawal.

There are a couple different things though. One, almost all of us have a psychological compulsion around diapers. I doubt anyone would even be here if the mental drive to wear a diaper weren't so strong as to overcome all resistance.

Second, there are developed habits. Two years ago, I didn't sleep with plushies and I had no trouble sleeping. Now I sleep with three plushies, and I feel uncomfortable if I don't have them because I've gotten used to them. But that could be broken by not sleeping with them for several days, and the level of adjustment doesn't go anywhere near physical withdrawal from addictive chemicals.

The only way it can be unhealthy is intentionally training yourself to be incontinent. Now I never tried intentionally but when I decided to stop cold turkey I made myself paranoid to the point that made myself psychologically depended to the point where after I quit i would hold my bladder even when empty afraid that I may wet which lead to a hernia.
Not fun now I actually causing incontinence issues and the hernia is constantly making me feel like I have to pee even when bladder is empty. I have NF which had caused me some incontinence issues when younger but got fixed and now they're back because of this.
So as long as you don't over due it with your fetish it's fine

When I think of withdrawal, it usually brings up negative connotations. Whatever type of lifestyle you live it better factor into your own needed lifestyle to pay the bills and function as an adult.

I sleep like a rock generally, but I also sleep like a giant boulder in diapers. I still sleep like some sort of hunk of hardened earth regardless lol. I probably never will get this giant nagging craving like a need a cigarette. To me that's sort of an issue that cause some other related problems.

I wear when I choose.

My situation matches what egor said exactly. When I was in binge-purge, I made it about 5 days trying suppressing thoughts of diapers and a week at most without wearing diapers. During the purge period I would mentally and emotionally beat myself up over my lack of self control. But when I was in binge mode, diapers and AB/DL became something so enjoyable that it could be called an addiction. In those times, I wanted to do it for the rest of my life (as in 24/7). Unfortunately, I binged to the neglect of my responsibilities which never made my life go too well.

Once I accepted my AB/DL side, it was more of the same, minus the mental anguish I gave myself. I also had a greater degree of self control, especially when I needed to get something done, as being little became an accepted, and thus enjoyable, part of me all the time even if I wasn't physically doing it. Of course I still have the desire to fulfill my physical needs, which comes every 1 to 7 days.

I think the majority of the AB/DL population have experienced binge-purge at sometime in their lives. As long as it doesn't affect day-to-day responsibilities, it should be fine.

This is my case as well. One moment you don't want it to stop and the next you don't want anything to do with it.

What you said describes my life, only recently I have been able to get some control of this. Because once you have access to diapers and are able to indulge in it you get into a binge, not going out and sometimes neglecting some responsabilities. After a period of days of binging on it I start to not want to do it, the urge goes away, and so I go trough a period of days where I stash away all my things and go about my life without thinking about it.

The only negative thing for me in this whole scenario was not being able to stop when I should during the binge phase, which thankfully I beginnig to be able to do so, slowly but surely. Thanks to my own experience and to adisc and reading about other people's opinions and experiences.

I can go weeks without any substanital thoughs about being padded, and then..... suddenly while at work I am reminded that I have a 'stash' at home and it takes my breath away. My thoughts are directed at getting home as quickly as possible and fitting myself into a crinkly diaper. My pulse quickens and I get weak at this thought. My impulse has caused me to drive faster and take the absolute shortest route home to fulfill this desire.

Yes, I would liken this to withdrawal symtoms for sure!

Even though I made no concious effort in abstaining from wearing, this urge can step forefront and center of my desires in an unexpected moment.
