    Has anyone ever felt like they lost their sex drive or even at times when they feel like jerking off or actually engaged with a woman they fail to get it up?

    I'm wondering if maybe I'm encountering Erectile Dysfunction. Oddly enough when I thought about watching porn or actually did I could not get an erection and didn't feel turned on. Even from the hottest videos I used to watch for many years. I'm not depressed and can still get a good workout in doing strength training and cardio and get my normal daily stuff done and talk to my friends & family. I feel like at times I'm disengaged and don't feel the 'horny' sensation from my teens and twenties (I'm 30).

    Is this just an age issue and not a reprogramming factor from NoFap? Curious to know if anyone else feels this way or been through this same thing. Let me know. How did you get through it?

    Thanks!

    Your age has a lot to do with it but flatline is real and tough to get used to. It's a mind game. Best of luck. I am in same boat.

    Your age has nothing to do with it.
    I suffered from ED at 23 due to my porn addiction.
    After a successful reboot of about 4 month I could have sex again.
    After a year I was still able to have sex but orgasms would set me back occasionally.

    I'm now 27 and I can say I've been having bouts of ED again after relapsing.

    I Relapsed after my ex broke up with me and sometimes I'd be fine, but one time I literally couldn't get it up with a woman I was seeing which was very embarrassing, and literally 9 days before I'd Relapsed and watched porn.

    PIED is very real. At 30, your test is dropping slightly but you shouldn't have any issues with sex drive and getting hard.

    It takes months to recover, maximum about 2 years.

    Can't believe I've wasted so much of my life on porn.

    What are your flatline symptoms and how long have you been in flatline for?
