    From what I've read, you're cured when you can start having sex?
    So why is it 6 months into nofap my morning wood is the worst it's ever been, why is it that I'm now completely impotent? Zero libido and completely dead dick.
    This is the worst its ever been. I feel brain dead.
    Why am I back in flatline after a period of having sex.
    I'm starting to believe nofap is no longer healthy.

    Recovery depends on how long you were addicted for.

    And Google up "Post Acute Withdrawal Syndrome". That'll put things into perspective.

    Same situation for me, i'm also starting to think nofap is just a placebo, but it's actually not healthy.

    I'll try to keep up more just to be sure, many people need 8 month to feel better, but i'm quite sure this is not right.

    I have abstain for 3 months and in that time I was depressed and had dead dick. the only time I didn’t had that issue is when I had sex with by gf. literally nofap takes all of your ways of getting virtual stimulation so you can focus on the real thing.

    And yes I got a new gf during nofap

    If you think a relapse is a good choice than just do it, but try to do it at least without the pornography!

    That's what I mean, 3 months and you're okay, I'm 6 months in, almost 7, finally started having regular sex and now I'm dead again, it doesn't make any sense

    Nofap lowers the frequency of any time you O if you increase this frequency you will feel like shit. Thats one of the disadvantage of nofap you can’t have sex 24/7 like regular fappers do and feel good about it.

    But isn't the point in nofap to regain your libido to its natural state and be able to have sex regularly?
    What's the point in nofap if you enter a flatline after sex?

    I thought the same but after having frequent sex your body isn’t used to the new patterns. I think if you maintain your regular sex you might get see used to it.

    I think it could be honest to say that sex has no place in the brain. It's of no use having sex desires at random, when you are not having, when there is not a partner. And it's of no use that your dick should get up at random. The zero libido may be the right placement of things in your life. Maybe you were used to throw sex in every aspect of life. This may be a little discouraging at first, but i think is like a disease being cured. Keep on and your energies will be reorganizing in other aspects of life. Try to go near a chick and see what happens: maybe you start feeling something in your heart.

    P.S.: pay attention at the mind tricks that want you to go back to the old habits. It is only an impression. It will find five star excuses to go back, i know what i'm saying. But if you follow you will feel that something is not so good.

    Don't search for sex, search for life experiences! Involvement! With girls also, don't start with the having sex idea. It will ruin your day

    Best wishes :)

    When you M, your mind is overwhlemed by dopamine, so, you feel good, but then, you will feel like crap and your body will start to crave for more, think, and this is my humble opinion, to go on, it may take more time for you ( there are stories on this forum with people that needed 1 year or more ), it's about your health, the choice is in your hand, remember how bad is M and P for you, just remember...

    The mind, used in a wrong way, becomes the biggest Joker you may encounter in this life, doing everything and anything to trick you back to your old habits, just to get that good feeling.I am talking from my own 8 years of experience, I've been in so many situations that I know everything about how my mind tries to trick me...

    I once asked a chick over to my place but she declined. So alternatively i went on a 2 day porn binge and over 8 faps.

    unexpectedly this chick came to my place the next day after these 2 binges. Did i go flat? hell yes, i even had to think of PORN just to O when we were going at it.



    All this porn has always screwed with my head when it comes to woman, so just use your 200 something days by actually talking to a woman and see how it goes, i guarantee all your real instincts will be firing properly once you create some sexual tension between you and a girl

    could depend on the woman you are with in regards to the not getting erect. As i said the porn had screwed so much with my mind that i was going flat with an attractive woman. BUT... my ex gf was a 10 and lets just say i had no problem even though i was porn binging. So again, it might be due to the fact you are used to seeing 10's in your mind and on the screen.

    I have been doing this for the last 219 day, I have a girlfriend, we have had sex from day 117 to day 211 and the last week my dick and libido have been completely dead.

    My point is this doesn't work, or at least for everyone, it's not normal to go a year or two with no libido, or not to have morning wood, people should see a doctor or do something to encourage a libido. I don't feel like this actually works.

    Don’t give up. This is just a trick that addicted part of your brain pulls on you. Stay strong. Remember it’s a commitment to a lifestyle.

    id say you might need to see a doctor if you have no libido. I sometimes also lacked libido with my ex gf but when I actually got going i went into turbo mode. But sometimes the thought of sex and the act annoyed me which i put down to laziness and the frustration to always having to satisfy a woman 24/7 ( maby she was just high maintenance)

    The point I'm making is that nofap killed my libido.
    It's not worth it at all...
