    Hi everybody,

    I apologize in advance for my english.

    Finally it is my turn to write in this section. It was clearly quicker as I expected.

    I'm in the middle of my twenties, and I had a PIED for 3 years which became stronger and stronger year after year. From occasional ED, it became no libido + no erections at all with a partner. I was PMOing ~1time a day for at least 10 years.
    Even now I'm not saying that porn is the only guilty here (I had developed performance anxiety as well), but I can't deny its role in my troubles.
    I discovered Nofap and I tried hardmode for as long as I would not be able to have a normal sexual life with someone.

    It was really hard. The first month was full of cravings. But then came the flatline and it became easier to keep going. After 30 days the major difficulty was keeping faith in my body and trying not to "test" me to see if my penis was still functional. I held out and after ~55 days I tried to have sex with someone I am really attracted to. And it worked well. I was extremely sensitive, more than ever. And since then, I masturbated twice (without P of course), and kept having sex. All is going fine. My sexual life is finally back to normal after all those years, with less than 2 months of hardmode. I'm not sure that it will keep going this way, but I'm pretty confident about it. At least it improved a lot.

    What I can say about this journey :

    • I had a severe depression for several years, and it is gone after 20 days of Nofap. It made me discover a new, stronger and better version of myself, more focused, more energetic, more ambitious (and dozens of other positive aspects)
    • I was able to resolve easily several problems I had in my life.
    • Even if its tempting, I'll never go back to P. I do not need it. P destroys your libido, your vision of women, your reward circuit...
    • If you have the same problems I had, removing P from your life will give you a strong help to recover

    At the beginning I was an alcoholic depressive piece of shit and I wasn't able to do anything in my life. I was PMOing/binging videogames/netflix all day, stuck in a vicious circle in which life was a burden. Stuck in my relationships. Stuck in my professional life. Stuck with the meaning of life.
    I can't believe I changed so much in so little time, just by removing PMO from my life. I unlocked my mind. I broke free from my shackles.
    I did that to recover a healthy sexual life, but it brought me so much more.
    Now I'm happy. Now I have hope.
    I'm pretty sure that soon you will too :)


    PS : this is a short post but you can ask me anything you want, it will be a pleasure to answer !

    Exactly, I had low sensitivity, and now I'm more sensitive than ever. Perhaps too much !

    Hi, good luck in your journey ! In order to succeed, I completely changed my environment and habits, that is to say I removed most of my internet/TV consumption and replaced it with exercising/hiking... I uninstalled all social networks apps (FB, twitter, YouTube...) from my phone and forced myself to use internet only when necessary.
    That sounds completely insane at first, but in fact that was easy because porn is a way stronger addiction, so you're not thinking about using snapchat when your brain is whining for its lovely porn. Contrariwise, not using internet makes Nofap easier to hold, because you delete all "false" triggers. The only ones that left are the real ones, like outside in the street. Those ones are better for your brain, because they make you desire someone real and they are easier to stop given that you're not in a situation in which you can easily masturbate.

    When the cravings were too hard to hold, I was going straight to the gym to spend my energy lifting weights or running.

    After a month, I reached the famous flatline and I was able to go back to my old life without being disturbed by my urges. But finally I think that leaving internet or at least drastically decrease my consumption was also a really good thing for my brain, and taught me how to be patient, more focused and how to appreciate the little things in life.

    First of all, congratulations!! It's always nice to see success stories like yours. This is motivational and inspirational. Good for you, brother!

    How did you overcome flatline? And how was the first time having sex after that hardmode?

    I forced myself to overcome it just by laying in bed with a girl. It just came back when I needed it :)
    The first time (and the others too) was awesome, a little bit short of course but really fine, even with a condom

    Hi, just out of interest as my PA partner has snapchat ( everything else is blocked) did you use it as a P substitute, if so how apart from sending recieving as I've checked all of that. Could he be using discovery in any way?

    Well no, nothing special, why ?

    I wasn't using snapchat while rebooting. I never used it much, but IMHO you can't use discovery as a P sub.
