    Long story short, many years of watching porn for up to hours per day, edging, and rarely cumming. I would often edge for days/weeks at a time. Sometimes stroking my dick for hours and hours watching pornography. I noticed the last few months my dick not responding as well. I could no longer get erect with my imagination, nor with a woman. But with porn, no problem. I cut it out completely 9 days ago. Like I deleted my degenerate porn accounts, blocked it all. My dick is completely and totally lifeless. I mean, totally, fucking lifeless. It is small, has zero feeling or sensitivity, and does not work. I am a 28 y/o male. My dick is quite large normally, so this is shocking and depressing. I am now reading that this may be normal.

    When I say the thing doesn't work.. it is totally dead. Lifeless. The idea of even getting an erection right now seems impossible. I even bought some meds to try, and it did absolutely nothing on a 5mg dose. I cannot become aroused. A few nights since quitting I have had some mild wood in the middle of the night, but nothing major. I seriously hope this is normal.. because it is quite scary to have your previously functioning dick be useless. I do not believe this is physiological because I had no problem getting a large erection weeks ago, and I have not had such little libido/using of my dick even when I was watching porn and having some ED issues. Do you think this is really all from porn addiction? I am never looking at that shit again, no matter what, but I just need some reassurance that this is OK and I am not bound to be a eunuch for life. Thanks all.
     
  2. It’s ok buddy it sounds like your experiencing the side effects of porn addiction. If your reading the content on here and becoming familiar with terms like PIED(porn induced erectile dysfunction) and DeathGrip(side effects of prolonged porn use) you surely know that what your going though has been and will continue to be experienced by many men. It’s normal to be fearful and concerned. This stuff is terrible!
    If anything I hope this brings the determination to you to stick with a porn free life and realize that there is great danger to both your physical and mental well being if you continue to choose that road. Stick with your plan, it’s going to take time.

    Thank you friend. I woke up last night with a massive erection and a wet dream, I presume it was the 4.5mg ED med I tried earlier in the day. I really was just praying my dick would not be broken indefinitely and I see that is not the case so I am very relieved today. Just knowing it still works, even while I'm sleeping, is a relief.
