    Yeah lol.but i have got a nice physique during flatline i had added a lot of muscle mass as i am not fapping much my testesterone and levels are good too.by march i'll make even more definitions to my body already i am noticing many girls getting attracted to me lol.the voice inside me is telling that am going to get cured by end febraury.even if i get cured i won't start rewiring until i complete 90 day period that's till march.sometimes my penis becomes so soft and rubbery during flatline and sometimes it stays like everything is fine.morningwood became regular and i am not having any fear that it's going to disappear finally am moving forward bro.stopped fantasizing as much as i could but the old porn which i watched flashes sometimes in my mind.anyways slowly getting out of depression lifting weights helped me a lot since i am getting into a very good shape its encouraging me even more.my situation is like as if i am a superman wearing the dress without any superpowers lol.best of luck to your recovery too brother

    I'm not a doctor, but I don't think texting girls and lack of morning wood are related. Were you sexting though?

    Lol I know what you mean. I could be wrong, but I don't think that's related to your loss of morning wood.. I've had some few days ago, and now I don't have em anymore again. Make sure you follow a good diet and sleep routine. And exercise.

    Yureka! i found my fault i stopped going to gym from past 4 days maybe that's why my test levels have gone down.since i was getting erections from texting i neglected gym that's why maybe my test levels went down.due to that my morningwood became weak due to low test levels so i am gonna get back to gym from this evening and see the changes..lol

    Gym helps testosterone levels obviously, but I'm not sure if it would immediately make that much difference. Anyway report your progress here.

    Lol good for you. What do you mean "it was an erection, not a morning wood"? Erection is a result of you thinking about something sexual as opposed to Morning wood which happens naturally even if you're not thinking anything sexual.

    I relapsed to masturbation bro. But quit porn and will quit it for life. I've spoken to two urologists and a psychologist. They and yourbrainonporn.com tell you that masturbation isn't the enemy, but porn is. And without porn you don't masturbate that frequently anyway. I relapsed to M on day 53, and have done it like 5 times since then. My erections were weak the first two times, but have been strong the last 3 times, only by imagination and stimulation. I have definitely improved. And even some sexy scenes on tv now give me a boner. Before they wouldn't because I'm used to seeing naked women so frequently. Also, I discovered I have anxiety ED. Went to hospitals a bunch of times the last 2 weeks. All my blood tests came normal, and my testosterone is normal @450 ng/dl, though not 'optimal'. I also went for a 'penile doppler scan', to get a penis anatomy health check up. To do that, I needed to be erect. This was last week. Doc asked me to go to the bathroom and stimulate myself. I went to the bathroom, imagined the wildest scenarios in my life, tried to even picture some porn, but nothign worked. Erection level 0. I told doc I couldn't get it up, though I could at home. He told me it was anxiety and he gave me a tablet for that. He explained how erections worked. Blood vessels down there need to relax (and dilate) so blood can pass through maintaining an erection. When you're feeling anxious or nervous, it won't work. He prescribed a tablet, and after an hour after taking it, I retried, and got an erection. He then did the scan and said my penis health was absolutely normal and that it was Anxiety ED since I couldn't get it up before for nearly 10 mins, and this time , with the tablet, I could get it up within 2 minutes. I assume this is why, in movies they show people lighting up candles and turning on soft music before sex. To relax their minds. So yeah, reading around and tlaking to these doctors have suggested that masturbation isn't the enemy but porn is. Now I'm more easily aroused because I don't frequently watch naked women, and I discovered I'm normal. Docs have also told me that not M-ing for prolonged periods of time would gradually reduce libido.. Even yourbrainonporn.com suggests this. And there are some professionals in there who talk about it. As long as you quit porn and artificial stimulus, I think you're good to go. Even your masturbation habits would normalize. I plan to do it twice a week now on in. The initial noPMO is usually to break the habit. And I think going nofap 53 days has what made me have weak erections the first two times I M-ed. It's easy for me to quit porn, and I'm happy about that.

    Congrats!anyhow you found someway..even if i want to relapse i doesn't even have an erection since am in flatline and the only way i could is by morningwood but i don't wanna do that.if u had stayed still the next thing is the DREADING FLATLINE..it makes you go sucidal good that u haven't gone through otherwise its the hell dude.anyways am in flatline and i keep motivating myself by saying"HELL IS FOR HEROES" hahaha.i have no anyother option no sexdrive(i feel like i want to kiss a girl but not sex lol)and no erections to masturbate and relapse so my only way is to survive this flatline and see myself on the otherside and am gonna do it.they say nofap gives superpowers and only some are able to get that..lucky me i have experienced some of them even before flatline by not masturbating.i didn't even know abt nofap at that time.its only after flatline i searched abt it in internet and came to know its flatline and the worst part is its both physical and psychological.ur penis looks everything is normal one day and the next all that is gone uffffffff...and u'll feel like u have just started it now and that's so annoying.previously i tried quitting MO many times and failed.i used to say its the last time am gonna do it and used to fap like that it went many times.its only after my heartbreak with a girl i have quitted MO but not P finally she helped me to quit pmo lol .i stopped porn only after hitting the flatline. And the most worst worst worst!thing is on the 2nd day of flatline i was not even able to get it up with porn nthng happened down there.and before that day i was able to get it up by fantasizing and the next there is nothing. but i wish to have my libido and my sex power back lol but am not gonna waste my sperm with many persons.but with only one whom i can be forever with my life.this is what nofap gives us the self control and there is no any greater superpower than that.we gotta transmute that sex motivation into our passions which are our productive things and be loyal to our girl..thanks for your support that u gave till now u helped me in the darkest days of my flatline..now am not much depressed and my energy not only mentally but also physically is super high.i shocked my friends by lifting heavier weights then them lol i guess semen retention is what that made it possible.but sex is great too and my libido gonna kick in few months i wish.my brain is just angry on me for not giving it a chance for that dopomane after its anger gets to an end i know it'll be back.until then i'll wait for it..and thanks bro.but don't leave nofap cz u masturbated.i need u and many others like me Needs u stay here..stay strong!let the nofap army rise...!

    Hmm, bro I think it isn't good for your libido if you decide to forever quit MO. If you read everything I said above, I clearly stated that I found out that porn is the enemy and not masturbation. It is good to go noPmo for a while UNTIL you feel you rebooted. Then gradually introduce MO back, but never do porn. Your libido might be dying slowly if you go prolonged periods. If you put aside MO so much, your body apparently starts to think you don't need it, and the brain adapts, and your libido only goes downhill from there. The initial noPMO phase is just to reset your state of mind and exercise some control over your habits. You say you quit MO but not P. That's the opposite of good sexual behaviour. You should MO now and then, but never use P. Just fantasize real girls and you should be good. I have been inactive on nofap because I found out that some people here are preaching complete abstinence which in my opinion isn't the right thing to do for good sexual health. I want to be a normal male who could have sex with a woman when I want to (or can, lol). Not become a priest or something meanwhile rendering myself impotent by taking up complete abstinence (because thats what no MO does in the long run). How long have you gone noPMO approx? Your flatline maybe be because your libido is already going down the drain. I mean after returning from a steady flatline after your first nofap attempt, you should ideally start MO-ing slowly. I probably rebooted around day 28. Because that's when my flatline ended. I started having bad urges after on days 28,29 and 30. But I was suppressing myself from MO. And when doc told me I'm not supposed to do that, I relapsed to MO on day 53. And I had weak erections while masturbating. This is because I probably rebooted on day 28 and I suppressed myself for nearly 25 days after that. But after the first two masturbation sessions, my last 3 sessions have been good. I was able to get hard erections and that was a huge relief. Because I was happy I can get hard with just imagination and touch, and no porn fantasies either.

    There are a lot of people here who'd disagree with me and the doctors who I consulted, and even yourbrainonporn.com which all agree that ONLY porn is the enemy.. Masturbation on a regular but non frequent basis is supposed to be good for the sexual health according to every science article, and I think it's true, from my personal experience at least. I'm not saying nofap is bullshit. I'm just saying nofap is good UNTIL you've rebooted. But complete abstinence thereafter is bullshit imo, and a lot of people here seem to believe that, and I think that's misleading. I'm not leaving nofap just because I think I'm cured. I do check for messages occasionally, and I take my time to give my success story to anyone who asks :).

    Just give this page a read. Read the whole thing, it's long, but trust me, it's something you'd WANT to know. https://www.yourbrainonporn.com/reboot_your_brain

    I AGREE with what you've said.tbh i too have experienced it bro.but vice versa i stopped MO but continued p and that's not too like before when i used to fap i watched once or twice a week.and yeah i had ed means i can get it up but i used to feel like if i insert. it would slide like rubbery thing during PMO.after i stopped fapping(but i watched porn i didn't know what nofap is at that time)after a month my ed is cured i can have boners.my erection used to be like before i have never had done M.and during that time i can have erections by fantasizing to real girls too.i even remeber that i told myself that i can make any girl cry right now lol.and what i noticed at that time is not fapping gave me a very manly posture.gave me a new energy and i never wanted to fap again after seeing those changes.and later,sexual urges hit me.i wasn't able to control them i masturbated my dick looked so big and rock hard when i masturbated.and the next day my body asked me again to masturbate it had a weak erection i thought its not good and didn't.and the next day boom flatline.morningwood gone i got so scared i tried to fantasize while sleeping on my bed it didn't work.i tried with porn i wasn't able.i googled it showed me that this is flatline.that's when i came to know abt nofap.i gave up porn from that day to today.i know that if i have masturbated that day and the next day i wouldn't had this flatline.even now i f i was able achieve erection twice and masturbate i know everything gets normal.but,the worst thing that happened in my life is not being able to achieve an erection.the only time i can is by morningwood my libido has gone down to very low.what sacres me now is am afraid to try it again with porn since i didn't get an erection with it when i tried with that while in the beggining of flatline.its been a month and half i lastly masturbated.i mean after curing ed i still stopped M.and the other harmful thing in yourbrainonporn it said we shouldn't use dating sites to artificially stimulate.what i've done throughout the flatline is i was texting many girls and got erections.not by fantasizing to real girls.so if my libido gets back i will do M.but now i am not able to get an erection during the day other than morningwood and nightwood sometimes or the other times when i text..after my libido comes back and after i was able to achieve erections should i wait for few times or should i start masturbation right away i get urges?can u share ur flatline experience bro?

    I don't exactly remember when my flatline started, it could've been day 9 or it could've been before, but since I started nofap, i was flatlining on the 2nd and 3rd weeks like a person.. My dick was shrivelled at that time too. No reaction down there. On day 28 is when I started getting crazy horny I felt like I should visit a massage parlor or something. I even called up a few places asking for happy ending prices. But thankfully I didn't waste my money there. I think I kicked out of flatline on day 28 though I didn't notice hard erections. I was just horny as fuck and couldn't stop thinking about sex while previously I had no urges before day 28. So I continued until day 53, when I think (not sure) I was starting to get into a flatline again. That's when my psychologist said I shouldn't go noPMO for that long or it would affect my libido. So I masturbated that evening. When I did finally masturbate, I was still getting a weak erection (this is why I think I was starting to flatline again). But despite any libido I tried to fantasize and masturbate and I was finally able to ejaculate. The second time was similar too, and that was after 2-3 days (day 55 or so). The third fourth fifth and sixth time (last night) were all hard erections. I manually ended my flatline by intentionally masturbating despite 0 libido. It's like beating a dead horse and asking it to wake up. And it finally did, and now it's awake and functioning well :) . I'm glad I took that psychologist meeting, now my dick works perfectly fine, and last night I was able to keep it up for a while despite my mind wandering away from sexual fantasies. Only my stimulation was enough to keep it hard, which is always a good sign.
    But then I can't really speak for you or others as they might react differently depending on their biology and amount / quality of porn exposure. It worked for me, so I can only believe that intentionally continuing nofap AFTER you ended your first flatline is going to affect you adversely. My porn experience was 12 years everyday, sometimes twice or thrice a day even. Average ratio is probably 1.2 sessions per day for 12 years. But I wasn't too much into hardcore porn. My preferred category for a long time was Indian MMS (lol), because i felt it was more natural and realistic, and the thought of meeting a girl like that on the streets turned me on. I also have watched all sorts of hardcore porn including light SNM (punishing), femdom, peeing, rarely transwoman on female and even animal sex a couple of times, but then it was rare, and it was usually for the novelty of it than the type of porn itself. So I wouldn't consider myself a hardcore porn addict, as it was easy for me to give up porn too. I just couldn't give up masturbation and I'm glad to know that masturbating without porn twice a week is actually kinda good for the body.
    If you ask me, the next time you start texting one of these girls, use your boner to end your flatline manually, but then I can't assure you what worked for me will work for you. But since it worked for me, and other professionals agree with this method, my suggestion would be for you to end it manually. You are probably going to have weak erections the first couple of times you masturbate, but eventually you'd start getting your libido and your boners back.

    Like I explained in my previous post, when you do masturbate, make yourself comfortable, dim out the lights, use a night lamp if you have one, get out some lube (coconut oil maybe?), and only think about the physical pleasure and maybe a girl you're texting. Put on some soft soothing music (without any singing. You should find some music videos on youtube. Try searching 'music for meditation and relaxation'), and it should help relax your blood vessels down there. Relaxed blood vessels down there = better erections. Dopamine isn't the only factor affecting your erections but it's also the blood vessels and anxiety. Be sure to have a very relaxed and calm environment basically. Report back your readings. All the best :).
