    Hey guys,

    I was wondering whether you also had mild morning erections and nocturnal erections during your flatline. Because I really feel like I am in a flatline, but I am having some mild morning erections and nocturnal erections.

    As far as I know morning erections are completely normal and has nothing to do with porn addiction or PMO.

    Instead, my personal experiences showed me that I hardly ever had morning erections when I masturbated. After a streak of at least 5 days I started have them and they had nothing to do with urges. At least not in a fantasizing way. It was just caused by a normal sexual energy.

    I'd say that if you're having morning erections during flatline, your reboot is a success. You're back to "factory settings"

    Keep it up.

    Thank you for your reply. I agree that morning erections are something not related to PIED, since it is a process that does not involve the same route of stimulation needed for fapping for example. But I do not think I am back to factory settings at all yet. I am on day 6 and I am by far not yet at the point at which I was during my longest streak of 84 days.

    I think that morning erections are a good sign of things getting better but, as you say, not a sign that you are back to factory settings at all. Depending on the severity of your addiction / damage done, this would take more time to heal.

    I no longer get morning erections, since masturbating heavily and binging on porn. How can you say it has nothing to do with porn addiction or PMO? I thought it was stated that loss of morning wood can be a symptom of heavy PMO somewhere, like here: https://www.yourbrainonporn.com/por...l-size-and-or-libido-are-decreasing-flatline/

    I'm confused. Not trying to challenge you or say that you're wrong, just trying to understand your logic behind it.

    Thank you for your question. You are right, people lose their morning wood due to PMO, (I have as well). But many people regain their morning wood far earlier than their normal erectile health. This is mostly because the body does not need arousal to get an erection during REM sleep, but it needs a lot of arousal and stimulation during sexual activities and stuff to get you fired up. That is why I said that morning wood has little to do with PMO addiction. But as you said, heavy porn users lose their morning wood as well. This is only a case for people with PIED and the more severe cases of it. Porn addicts without PIED often still have really good morning wood.

    What I meant by telling that morning erections have nothing to do with PMO was that those impulses are natural; as porn is unnatural. Porn is something artificial to the human brain and thats why you're getting addicted to it as your mind doesn't know how to cope with it. Of course PMO effects morning woods or just practical erection during sex. What I wanted to tell Daxos was that he could have morning erections even if he was masturbating every single day, however that's usually more unlikely.
    I hope I made it more clear this time.

    People who have never watched porn in their lives have morning erections too. It's a natural phenomenon. So if you have started having a morning wood it is a good sign that you're in a prospering situation.

    I can't say that I agree with the link you shared, quitting porn actually increased my libido and genital size too. Or I would say, they are back to the defaults settings.

    Everybody has a different path in their nofap journey and the experiences we get can vary. My experiences showed me that no porn means stronger erections, lots of healthy morning woods (without the necessity of a wet dream), a stronger sex drive and bigger genitals, especially balls.

    Yes I PMO'd everyday before I started Nofap and I never had morning wood once. I started my steak of noPMO and went straight into a flatine. At this time I still didn't have any morning wood neither. I got morning wood back at day 33 (I was out of the flatline at this point). So quite late compared to some people. So PMO is definitely a factor. P.s I suffer from PIED.

    Hi @Daxos !

    Everybody is different, but yep, even during flatline times morning and nocturnal erections occur. Nothing to worry about, its your body doing what is right for it, so don't be tempted to "test" your system. It works, and will continue to heal further as time progresses.

    One day at a time is how we all succeed.

    You will be okay @Anonymous86 Just remember flatlines are showing that you are recovering. If you stay away from PMO you will recover. It's that simple.

    I got into flatline by masturbation and to binging to porn though. Not by abstinence. It happened through a 2 day period. Is this normal??
