    Hey guys!

    I have a success story. Last night I had sex without any pills. Erection was pretty good. 100%.
    Also, I was able to last for 30 mins!!!!
    Half of that time was an intense blow-job, like very intense (my gf is so good at it now because we haven't been able to have sex for months from Aug - Sep due to my flatline causing weak erections) and also the last 15 mins was pretty hard sex.
    Was amazing!
    I feel as if a burden was literally lifted off my shoulder. I was so fucking happy!

    Note: The first time I had to have sex last night I lasted like 1 minute. I felt so bad.
    Then tried again, and boom!!!

    Also, mid-week (a few days ago), I've been waking up with morning wood (nearly 100%), hard to pee sometimes. Also, I noticed that my libido was pretty high. Had the urge to release / masturbate mid-week - and I did on Mon and Thurs.

    So I'm not sure if Masturbation causes any issues. I have drastically reduced masturbation since the start of my reboot in August. The one thing that I have dedicated to 100% eradicate is porn - which I have done.

    Hey guys, I went back into a flatline after an O with my gf a few days ago.

    Erections are weak again. But apparently this up and down is normal for sometime. I have read that O can cause flatline again. It's just such a relief to have at least some periods of hope. Even just once a month. Helps to keep me going a lot.

    Also, I have found lately that sexual fantasizing thoughts have almost disappeared.

    Anyway, I know I have a long way to go because I watched porn for 15 years. So 5 months rebooting is still nothing for that level of abuse. Therefore, I still feel hopeful.

    Also, I cannot get a full erection just by looking at my gf. I need a bit of physical stimulation to get going properly. I know when i can get hard just looking at her i will be recovered.

    For a few years now I've thought I just had performance anxiety until about 2 months ago when I did some research on why I couldn't get it up except to porn and now trying to join the legion of nofappers. I was exposed to porn early by a college aged neighbor and have been at it since ~roughly 15 years I would say, from my reading I know everyone's body is different, but how long before you started to see results after the 15 years of abuse?

    The thing is with me I was still able to get it up perfectly for sex with women. Sometimes I had performance anxiety and it took a while to work - but it always did when I calmed down. My erections were rock hard , painful, with women and porn. I sometimes could not pee and had to put cold water on my dick to get it to go back down. It was literally a battle to keep it down.

    I only went into this flatline 1.5 weeks after I decided to quit porn because I met a girl and started a relationship and I just preferred having sex with her.

    I thought I would be fine and for some reason porn didn t impact me so bad because my erections were still perfect after I quit porn- unfortunately the flatline set in at 1.5 weeks after quitting like all of a sudden. And then erections were terrible.

    Anyway, it was not possible for me to have sex until 3.5 months into flatline. It was not good sex, pretty terrible, but i can't expect it to be after such a short time. Then at 4.5 months we had two occasions of amazing sex.

    Now it seems at 5 months it feels almost as bad down there as when I first enetered the flatline.

    Most success stories I have read talk about progress over years.

    Also , I have drastically reduced M , but the truth is I can go one step further by totally elimitating it. Im hoping this will speed things up. I might also talk to my gf and stop having sex each weekend so I can also start to limit O. Lastly, ive only just stopped fantasizing only in the past 2 days. Hoping this will help as well.

    Why do you want to limit O with your gf?

    I read that it can help recovery to limit O early on in the reboot. Maybe thinking we should try for sex once every 2 weeks rather than every week.

    I'm not sure yet. But definitely going to quit M now, and also fantasizing. Porn is also a huge no.

    The only thing I'm not sure about is how much to limit O from now on.

    But at least im 100% sure about my other strategies and also on track. No relapses to porn yet and never will be. So easy for me to quit. Cried like a baby when I found out the flatline was real. Thought i had got away without any damage because erections were still fine for a week and a half after quitting.

    I had literally the best sex last night of this journey so far.

    I have noticed a few changes this last week, some things have freaked me out a bit, as I have never been though a reboot before, and info about this process is still not scientific.

    1) I am in a flatline this whole time, (I can't get erections that great without some help from my gf via physical stimulation). Normally, I should be able to just look at her naked and that's enough.

    2.) I am losing the ability to stimulate myself or get turned on by myself. This is a very strange feeling. If I try to masturbate, it just doesn't really work so good. I don't get properly hard like I do when I have sex. And also, I don't care because I want to be wired to my gf not myself. Before I entered this flatline, I was constantly rock hard by myself masturbating (or maybe it was also the porn causing it). I am losing interest in masturbation and it's just not exciting or able to get me erect like it used to before. I have not tested my response to porn, and I never will - so I don't know the answer to that.

    3.) I can feel as if my flatline is even worse some days (dick just feels detached from my mind/body).. However, when my gf comes over, it can get hard enough for sex whereas I thought it would be impossible. Last night I didn't even try, thank god my gf made a move on me because it was the best sex I have ever had in my life (lasted 20 mins which is enough for me and her - but also great quality).

    4.) I am finding it very hard to fantasise. Thoughts about sex don't get me aroused any more. This is very strange. Even since day 1 of this reboot, I could start to get erections whilst fantasising (not good erections, but still something). Now if I fantasise, I don't even enjoy it, and even if I try, my dick hardly gets aroused. This was really scary for me to go through a fews days ago. I thought it meant my flatline was even worse, but maybe it means my brain is rewiring to my gf rather than all those fantasies I used to whack off to. It is the most weird experience that fantasisinig doesn't turn me on. It's hard to explain.

    Can orgasm without a partner cause a flatline?

    For me, yes I noticed sometimes after orgasm my flatline felt even worse.

    I don't know if it can cause a flatline because technically for me Im not out of my first and ever flatline since I quit porn in August last year.

    However in my experience sometimes orgasm can make my current flatline feel worse

    I see. I ask because one day I orgasmed (without a partner) and had flatline symptoms.

    That's strange. I haven't really heard about that happening before.

    What I have come across so far is flatlines caused by quitting porn.

    Then, once in a flatline caused by quitting porn, orgasms in this flatline can set it back and make worse.

    Alternatively, if you come out of this flatline, orgasms can put you back in one.

    It's possible. It's somewhere in Gary Wilson's book "Your Brain On Porn". Have you read it?

    Yeh read it a few times. His main line is to just quit porn. I don't recall him saying bad things about masturbation.

    But maybe if the masturbation is really excessive it could do something.

    When I got my first (and still) only flatline, I was masturbating to a porn (substitute).
