Struggled with PIED. Turned 40 in late June and realized I didn't want to proceed into my forties still doing this nonsense. Approaching the two month mark. Here's some things I've learned: 1. This process is the real deal. It works. 2. The first two weeks were the hardest. You just gotta push through. Like everyone else says, find distractions or build good habits for when you feel the urge. YouTube coaches like JK Emezi were a big help here. So was this forum. 3. The Flatline is real. Weeks 2-4 were a weird time. Considered "testing" but heard that was a bad idea. Keep your eyes on the prize. 4. Around the one-month mark, everything came roaring back to life. Super strong erections. MW almost every day. It was like I was in high school again. 5. My usual process was Lingering on a Sexual Thought-->Scrolling through "soft" images (lingerie, swimsuits)-->PMO. So, fight it at the source. Avoid entertaining sexual thoughts and remove/avoid triggering media. 6. I feel sad about all the time I wasted not doing this. Stay strong!
