    Hello and new,

    I have watched porn since I was a teenager, I am now 40 and am quitting. It is hard to say that I am this age to be quitting. However, this is where I am and it's being done.

    When I watch porn now my brain (synopsis) will trigger a rush of signals that are a "bad feeling" instead of getting aroused. I am not watching but this is the stage of my brain when quitting.

    When I look at women in "real life" I do not get a sexual feeling or any desires. So, I am worried and want to know if a reboot will fix this problem. I am afraid my brain is so programmed that it has taken on a lack for sexual desires. Right now, I have very few desires and it makes me wonder if I will ever get back to wanting a woman and wanting to have sex when the relationship hits that point.

    I am hoping someone has been in the same spot and can give me some feedback to what I need to do and what is likely to happen to my brain if I do a reboot. Will I ever get my desire to wanting women again sexually. Right now I look at women as porn stars and that is not a good outlook for them. It is my problem and I want to fix this to have a healthy emotional and physical relationship with someone I care for.

    I haven't been in your position where I haven't had any sexual desires to women but I can tell you if you do no PMO (Porn-Masturbation-Orgasm) for the next 90 days you will get these desires back because you will "reset" your brain to it normal chemical levels. the first 2 weeks are going to be the hardest it was for me anyway. but I am now on day 31 (which is my longest streak) after 3 months of trial and error and to be honest I don't even have urges to PMO and my views on women have changed to sexual objects to real people with emotions. and that one thing to remember is that the NoFap lifestyle is a journey I have grown so much in the last 3 months. but anyway best of wishes on your journey friend.
