    If you don't mind tell us your background. What age you started M ing, Did you suffer from mental disorders before your addiction?, Have you been on meds? How was your family situation when you grew up? How old are you? What are you doing besides nofap?

    1) Are you edging during your 20 month streak?

    2) Did you have any relapse at all during your streak?

    3) How often are you fantasizing?

    4) Are you having frequent nocturnal emissions/wet dreams?

    5) Hows your diet?

    6) Are you doing a minimum amount of exercise?

    7) What are your other habits? Are you a dopamine junkie I.e playing video games all day or watching YouTube videos or spending it on social media?

    8) Are you spending time outdoors

    9)As others asked, how long have you been addicted/what’s your age?

    I suggest getting your blood work, if you haven’t already. Test your T levels, test your b12 levels, in fact test all your b vitamins, your vitamin d levels, magnesium and zinc levels.

    There's a saying "You hang around the barbershop, you're gonna get a haircut sooner or later".
    Be patient with fierce perseverance, keep smiting the dragon of chaos and don't give up buddy! Flatlines perchance can last prolonged periods of times, maybe it could last a year and a half, depending on the severity and how much you've been abusing pornography, keep fighting and don't relapse, don't let the voice inside your head cunningly play tricks with you, but allow the conscience to permeate in your life.

    Better than me ! I am in a constant flatline for 20 months, no signs of libido, not even a glimpse. You are making progress, be strong.

    Thank you for the support. The most difficult part of the flatline, is that you can´t feel progress or evolution. But i won´t give up. There is no turning back now.

    Dont worry about flatline . Libido will come back . I m fine with no libido once you have libido chances are that we will engage in some thing sexual . So until brain heal flatline is our friend . Give more time to your brain . Keep praying

    I mean it isn't normal for flatline to last that long, I've heard few long flatline stories but i don't remember anyone saying it went for 24 months, few things should be considered,
    How are your testosterones levels, how much physical activity do you do in a day, nutrition is a big factor and finally how severe was your addiction. I had a severe addiction, I've been PMOing since 13 i am 24, only had sex 2 times and suffered from PIED, i went on hardmode and flatline lasted for 2 months at max. Then i started having morning woods and things got better, Give it few months more then you should consider getting your testosterones checked and visit urologist

    It´s the flatline. I have all the symptoms. The problem is in the brain. The longest flatline of a successful rebooter, to my knowledge, is 27 months. Besides, Gabe Deem and Noah Church have seen flatlines of 2 to 3 years.

    Hey there. I have been in a flatline since Jan 2020 and have had most symptoms. However, I have recently decided to try Zinc citrate and Magnesium citrate before bed. Doing this, I have noticed much deeper sleep, better skin and I even started feeling somewhat horny when waking up and throughout the day (although the horniness has subsided for now). Additionally a few days after this deep sleep I have noticed huge NoFap headaches and the feeling of a heavy head start to develop. This was one symptom I NEVER had in my previous 18 months or so of reboot. Which is very odd, considering this is one of the most common symptoms. Now, at first glance you'd think the headaches would be a bad thing, but I think this is a sign my brain is rewiring more/faster. After all, zinc and magnesium are important in the functions of 300 different enzymes.

    I believe taking zinc in particular before bed is helping my recovery via inducing deep sleep. I had taking these during the day before and hadn't noticed anything really, but at night is where I've noticed the changes. I should also point out I'm taking a Vitamin D/K formula and Omega 3 supplement in the morning. But I had been taking these for a while and hadn't noticed much (although I think they are important).

    What if the headaches are caused from the zinc supplements tho?

    I have considered this. I don't think so as I have been taking a small amount (15mg). Also, the headaches I have been getting are almost the same type as many Fapstronauts describe. I had been taking zinc for weeks in the morning and no headaches or anything of the sort, but soon after i started taking it at night I got better, deeper sleep and have only now started to experience some of the symptoms other Fapstronauts have described. This correlated with me getting some of my libido back after a year of absence, as well as a major improvement in the health of my skin, so its clearly something my body needs.
