  1. I'm finally in flatline period! It's so.....strange... but nice that it's a nice Break from raging erections, insane urges, etc.

    How long was yours?
    What happens after the flatline period ends
    Any tips in surviving through the flatline period?

    Thanks!

    I was in flatline, had morning wood 3 days in a row, and then got back to flatline again.
    Only thing I can think is not to panic and let rebooting continue...
     
  4. It really do test your faith. Thank god I don't have a girlfriend now during flatline. Sex would be awful

    Well... Sex would be pretty much impossible, as I have absolutely no sex drive.
    Flatline completely freaks me out every single time. It feels so strange and kind of 'dead inside'.

  7. I'm new in flatline. Others would know. Great question!

    For me, maybe only 1 erection today. Mostly dead. I consider it flatline.

    In my case, morning wood apparently doesn't mean that I'm out of flatline. Can't wait this to be over...
     
  9. I agree. It feels like "dead inside" but right now I'm just glad that I'm on a break from urges, etc. but I already can see why it can drive some guys crazy!

    Mine started 1.5 weeks after quitting porn. I think that only just in the past few days am I starting to see signs that I might be coming out of it. My erections are starting to come back and I have a lot more feeling down there. Before, it felt as though my dick was not really connected to by body. It's such a weird feeling.
     
  12. Definite low libido and less ME in week 4. SO being good about it.

    I am pretty familiar with flatline. A lot of my relapses the past year have been in the 30 - 60 day range coming out of flatline. So that's about how long it lasts for me. I've found surviving through flat-line a little easier than from intense urges. Most danger of relapse for flatline might be just feeling empty and bored and wanting stimulation, then turning to PMO as a familiar remedy, instead of getting overpowered by an urge.

    But the second wave of urges is really what is difficult about flatline, you can get comfortable and then they come on strong suddenly, at least for me. I also noticed this weird thought I have to myself, like if I commit to going past 60 days and beating the second wave then I will need to leave PMO for good and fully establish a long-term streak. And I feel fear of doing that and then have a relapse. So idk, it can be a weird time. Interesting to hear everyone else's experiences.

    I have to say, I never really experienced a flatline. Does it kill sex or just makes it harder to become aroused?
     
  17. Flatline means little or no erections, no urges, no libido.
