    Hello everybody,

    I'm doing nofap for so long, since the ending of winter and after all this time I can't get harder in bed and my girlfriend is very disappointed in me. I started eating healthier, going to the gym over 3 times a week and gave up to a lot of bad habbits like drinking, smoking and I still don't know how to improve this.

    Guys, I'm desperate and I hate the situation. If someone can help me I will be very grateful.

    Thanks!

    you're likely still in the process of re-booting, and experiencing a flatline which causes ED. The duration of a flatline is unique for every individual, often related to how long you were addicted to PMO. Some people have flatline duration between 30 days to 6 months, but extreme cases can last up to a year or longer or longer. Mine lasted 20-30 days once I reached 50 days into my streak.

    I'm glad for you that you managed to get cured so fast, you were really lucky. I hope you are right about flatline and everything will be better in time, but I'm still hopeless for the moment..

    It could be perfomance anxiety issues, or maybe something else, 110 days is a lot of time unless you were a heavy porn user you should be fine after that time.I recommend to check your T levels, if that came fine, then is a psychological issue
     
  5. Does flatline mean no sexual interest ? Or difficultybin erections? I have never had erection difficulty. Seeing that I could develop this via abstentions seems troubling

    Holy crap - 110+ days is tremendous progress! Congratulations. Now that PMO is out, maybe check with a doctor. If you're getting morning wood again, you don't have a physical problem. Even if you're not it isn't sign of a physical problem. Whatever you do, DON'T TRY PORN TO "TEST" IF YOU CAN GET IT UP!!

    Thank you, man! I know it's huge progress. I rarely get morning erections, maybe I'm getting older... I won't try porn just to test things out and I want to know if there are some small 'tricks' to improve erection before going to a doctor. It will be pretty awkward for that...

    Hmm, you might be right with testosterone, I heard it goes lower with aging and I can investigate further to get solutions. I used to PMO daily and I had some days when I did that for 2-3 times.

    Continue fighting and always be optimistic as much as you can. Patience is needed in this case and believe in yourself, believe you can get better. Don't be negative about that at all. Its so normal and expected to have ED. Think about it, you spent so many years doing PMO and expecting to recover everything in few days? months? Just keep pushing yourself. It so so so good that you quit smoking and started exercising, this way you'll recover faster. Try to meditate, do basic kegel exercise and check after 4 to 6 weeks. You are going to achieve this!!! Congrats man!

    Did you watch for how many years porn? Did you make some weird fetishes Femdom, etc etc.?

    It can more time for your erection to get normal. But once its fixed its for good. Many guys have reported 4 to 12 months. Whats your age?

    Yeah, you are right, maybe I should get more positive regarding this and everything will be fine eventually. I don't know what to say about kegel. I read some reviews and few people find it useful. I can try it in the future. Meanwhile, I started taking L-arginine, like 1000mg a day (a pill), but I don't see something different. I'm thinking after this to try zinc and magnesium supplements.

    I started watching porn 6 years ago when I was almost 18. I didn't watch hardcore porn, only simple stuff like straight, sometimes lesbian.

    I'm 24 right know and feel like I'm just a robot when it comes to attraction.I think the reason for this might be because most of the time I wasn't hard enough when MOing and my brain got used to this habbit... Sometimes I wish to get hard by simple things like seeing a hot girl outside.

    Thank you guys for your opinions and advice!

    You may have tried this already. The test that's in the 101 manual to see if it's porn induced ED or a physical problem?
