    I’m scared man, it’s been 90 days hard mode but they were easy because it was 90 days of a damn flat line, only had urges twice, and they were too random sick thoughts, almost relapsed but stopped myself. I started this streak after breaking a 3-week streak to masturbating with a half soft dick. These have been some of the most depressing 3 months of my life and I don’t know why, no urge to do anything, to get out of bed, just negative thoughts, barely any erections, only when I think about my gf, who I recently broke up with because i had to keep lying to her on why she couldn’t see my penis (could never maintain an erection, been suffering with PIED for years).

    I’m 19 years old and im about to be 20, I’m losing my mind over here man, just lost the girl i love because of fucking porn, man why did I listen to my friends when they told me to watch it in middle school, I fucked up so bad. I wouldn’t wish this pain on my worst enemies. I fucked up my mental, I tried fixing my mental by hooking up with my gf over and over, trying to reprogram my mind, but I could not hold a damn fucking erection, yeah I’ll get hard but they’re like 70-80% and won’t last long. Someone give me something man I can’t keep going on like this.

    My sexual energy is non existent, when I get hard, they're no longer full erections, just half erections that fade easily. Its not right man.

    If you love her tell her the truth and try to get back together. Quitting porn and masturbation is the right path to heal your problems in the long run. In the short run you might want to get ED pills to be able to have intercourse with her.

    Also, take vitamin d3, zinc, and magnesium to make sure your body can produce testosterone.

    Luckily for you, you're really young. I'm in the same boat as you right now but I'm 33. Wish I would've done my research earlier. Keep in mind, this is not an easy or fast process to go through. It can be slow and miserable at times. Not to mention, there's also a pandemic happening. Covid isolation alone makes it difficult to find motivation/inspiration to do anything. Sounds like you're on the right path, though. For some, it can take up to two years to fully recover. I haven't read any stories of permanent PIED for those who are putting in as much effort as you seem to. Also, I agree with Oliver. You should tell your gf about your issue and see if she's willing to work on it with you. Gals tend to be a lot cooler about that kind of thing than we tend to give them credit for. I was starting to date a really cool gal when I finally realized/accepted that I had PIED. Wish I would've had the chance to tell her but I was friend-zoned before I had the chance. I still might tell her someday if it feels right. She's worth being vulnerable for.

    Keep pushing man. You're already off to a great start and it can only get better from here.

    I appreciate the words man, ima keep going, ive hit such lows over the past couple of weeks that once im out of this I feel like I can achieve anything. Never gonna take the energy and drive I had before these lows for granted. Its crazy what's happening to me though because its so new to society you cant find a real cure or a doctor's explanation everywhere. I feel like a damn test subject. Never have been this depressed in my damn life.

    Sorry to hear you're struggling this way man. Defnitiely think about the little blue pill, they can really help get your confidence back, get things working down there.
    Lots of people here will say NOOOOOO no pills ever! Well, if youre happy as things are, carry on. You tried nofap, it didnt work, just like it didnt work for me, so look elsewhere for solutions, one of which is medication.
    Good luck, you can beat this!

    Yeah, ZMA is helpful for me. What Oliver said. I think the supplement is normally called ZMA for the zinc, magnesium, and B6. Plus D3. I'd recommend going for a 30 minute walk each day to get some sun exposure as well. Really helps my moods.

    I'm all pro ed pills, but don't give up nofap. In the success stories you read a lot of stories where it takes many months or even more than a year to heal PIED.

    There's a group of meds which are all similar, sildenafil (viagra), tadalafil and vardenafil. Tadalafil stays on your system much longer, 24 - 36 hours they say, 10-20mg tadalafil, 25-100mg sildenafil and vardenafil 10-20mg.
    Tadalafil works well for me. They say 2.5mg tadalafil daily for ongoing ed treatment as opposed to the others which are a use as needed dose.

    I dont know how much you know about pharmaceutical stuff. Viagra contains sildenafil, the active ingredient, produced first by Pfizer their patent has now expired so different pharmaceutical firms can now produce it. I take my prescription to the chemist and I can buy the same drug made by different producers, it shouldn't make any difference but I think it does.
    Buying online is a bit hit and miss. I have one supplier I use, I always get my stuff but im not convinced it contains what it says. Eg I tried one pill supposedly 200mg of sildenafil haha no way, thats double the maximum normal dose and it hardly did anything.
    So id try doing properly through your doctor + prescription.
    I'm 49.
    Cheers

    Don't be too harsh on yourself, but just by waiting the solution will never come, for how long have you been having trouble with your erections?
