    Hey guys I'm getting a little worried about something,
    I started NoFap because i'm suffering from PIED and since I started NoFap, like literally the very first day, I have no urge to watch porn at all. Before, was very addicted to porn. I PMO'd several times a day, but now I never even think about watching porn and my libido is gone.

    I know what flatlining is, but why don't I have a urge to watch porn anymore and why did my flatline come so early? Did anyone else experience the same?
     
  2. Why are you worried?! You should be pleased as punch!

    Every person is different. You've flatlined right from the start. That's OK. It comes and goes.

    Keep it up!

    I worried because I don't know how long this flatline will last lol. When and how long did your flatlines last? Also how are your erections now?
     
  4. Well, I'm only 50 days in after a lifetime of addiction, so we probably can't compare. I haven't measured my flatlines, but they've varied from a couple of hours to maybe a week. I've had a few of them in the 50 days.

    My erections are rare and usually pretty soft, but occasionally (specifically morning wood) strong.

    Please don't worry about it. You will have strange moods while your brain readjusts itself. Just remember, when you feel like that, it's temporary, don't take it out on other people, and don't do anything rash.

    I have similar experiences to you.
    When I make a firm decision in my head that I am going to abstain from PMO, it's as if my body gets ready for it.
    I hit a flatline generally immediately (after maybe 2 days). My libido is flat and I'm emotional. At day 7 the flatline seems to pass and I start getting spontaneous erections and my mood improves a lot at around days 7-10. Anxiety has probably decreased by about 30% at this stage.

    Right now I'm on Day 18 and everything is good but I still get no morning wood. I'm waiting for that to come back before I think I've reset most of the damage.

    The point is, everyone is different. Some enter a flatline straight away. For some, the urges are unbearable for the first 2 weeks. I think you should be grateful for your flatline - it makes starting a streak easier, and it shows that you do have a problem that needs to be addressed.
    It might take you 30 days, or 100, or 300 or 500 depending entirely on your age/lifestyle/porn history/etc.
