    Hey guys,

    Im on day 10. First time I really do this experience and meanwhile it's going not bad at all.

    When I started it my plan was to start the hard mode for month, and after Ive became active in this forum I started to think maybe I should try the 90 days nofap.

    The only thing that scares me is the flatline. I don't feel it, actually I'm not sure what it is, but people in this forum are talking about have it for 5 monthes!

    I am not radicaly addicted to P or M, but I did have every once in a while peid.
    Can you say for sure I would have flatline?? And for more than month?? If so, I'm not sure is the right thing for me.

    I've never had a noticeable flatline and i've been past 90 days hard mode, so pretty sure not everyone goes through one. I guess it depends on your level of addiction.

    Not everyone has a flatline, and even if they do it manifests in different ways.

    For some a 'flatline' is what it sounds like. They have been excessively masturbating to porn (perhaps every day, multiple times), and they quit. They may feel a bit of buzz/sting calling them back to keep going. (and then suddenly, nothing. Nothing in such a strong quantity that it's frightening) This can last several weeks as the body recuperates.

    For some a flatline isn't a 'nothingness' in sexual function. A flat line might be you've been happy, not tempted, and suddenly, you feel very low, depressed, and almost tearful about the fact that you're not having sex. It can also be anger, irritation with your partner or people/pets/circumstances in your environment. This is usually just a few days.

    A flatline may not even be a emotional state. It can be a sudden profound lack of focus, and inability to pay attention to what needs to be done. This can last a day or more.

    Not everyone has emotional or mental chemistry that contributes to these states. Additionally, if Porn wasn't that great of an influence in your life, you might not suffer.

    Sure! The first weeks i noticed more energy and concentration and felt more social overall. Also horniness, no flatline whatsoever. I had mood swings though which weren't that great...
    After a month or so i began having wet dreams now and then and they kinda drained my energy but other than that I felt pretty good.
    After the second month or so i just felt alright. Not great but definitely not flatlining either.
    After 110 days or so i relapsed and have been on and off porn since then, but i always try to cut it down.
    I dated some girls during the reboot but didn't have sex until aprox day 100. For some reason i feel more confident with girls now than while doing hard mode but that's probably cause i watch porn only very ocasionally.
    Before rebooting I experienced mild ED a couple of times and more frequently delayed ejaculation. After quiting porn the sex has been better especially the connection you feel with the girl, and I like it softer now too.
    Hope i helped :)

    It helped a lot! Because it sounds like we both don't want to stop m forever, just to reduce it, and in your case, probably also keep p but in low level (I want p out of my life forever). How often do you use p or m?

    I do want to stop porn forever, when I use it it's because of an impulse, not something I plan. However if I do it once every two weeks for example I'm not going to be harsh on myself as it has little effect in my life, but in an idealistic world I would never do it.
    I try to avoid masturbation too as it leads to porn. They go hand in hand, at least in my case.

    I don't think everyone has a flatline, only you'll know it.

    I guess maybe i'm on this "flatline" now?
    I saw video on facebook that was kinda hot, and than I started to watch some hot videos on youtube.

    I don't have any craving for P (I never was so addicted) but I do have some crave for M. However, I'm still feeling hornyness only in my head and now in my body. This is the reason I started NoFap from the first place. I'm still trying to understand if this process will help me get my "desire" back without physical activity on my body. Is it even possible or on age 25 and up you just loose the ability to get aroused just by view or words?
