    Well I'm on my 9th day into my new NoFap journey. Want to make it into a lifelong one. The sad thing is I'm in a flatline which I know a lot of people like, seeing how a lot of them are single and it helps them stay on track. I've been in a flatline for awhile now and even BEFORE the NoFap.

    The reason I'm doing this is for my occasional ED and DE. I'm in a relationship and I don't want this flatline to interfere with sex. When we have alone time I really wanna rewire with her during the reboot.

    I would always freak out and go back to porn to see if I could still get an erection. Which I was able to thankfully. I'm not to worried about spontaneous erections seeing how I'm 26 and not a teenager anymore. I just have no ambition to even wanna try and bust one out which scares me. I would rather have urges and fight them, rather having no urges and stress about not having any urges.

    Which brings me to my question for experienced guys in NoFap. Is it possible to still have sex during flatline? Will getting intimate with my girl kinda jump start it a bit? When I'm with her I do wanna have sex with her so I guess it's only a flatline when I'm by myself. Does that make any sense at all? I have been getting morning woods again sometimes which gives me hope things are getting better. I just remember being hornier than a jack rabbit before but now it just kinda feels blah when I'm not with my girl. Reason why I ask all this is because she's been very busy with her daughter and buying a new house so we haven't had sexy time in a long while so I'm not sure how things will play out I guess.

    Thanks for reading and responses would be appreciated! I'm feeling desperate and feel like testing with porn again but don't want to because I know it will only hurt me and not help.

    Flatline is dangerous. Don't experiment anything new. Stay on track.
    And say NO to porn and porn subs. Good luck!

    Do not test the flatline, just embrace it

    That's the thing though I don't wanna embrace it. It freaks me out. Makes me feel as though I won't be able to have sex with my girlfriend. That's the reason behind this.

    Yes I know, but thats just rationalisation. If you read the forum you will realise flatlining is temporary. The addicted part of your brain wants you to believe it is permanent so it can tempt you back to porn. You have to choose which you believe.

    Yeah I know. Do you think it could effect my performance with my girlfriend? I'm going to continue with NoFap for sure. I'm not gonna give in!

    Don't worry its all normal. Consider yourself as someone who is trying to stop using drugs because in my threads I wrote how I consider fapping a type of a drug for your brain. Don't worry, when NoFap becomes your habit, your way of life. Everything else will be even better.
