    Did you have many wet dreams? When did you release you were cured? I'm struggling to get an erection even alone these days.

    100% flatline. I don't think supplements can help. What can help is a good diet along with removal of all junk food. I have tried ashwagandha and I still have it here and there but I can't really say that it helped me during flatline. It doesn't have any side effects so I tried to see if its doing anything. I have found that time is the only thing that gets you out of this. Avoid all p subs and any type of simulation for a faster recovery.

    Yes, there were multiple phase where I had like 3-4 wet dreams in a week. But this goes away gradually as you progress further and beyond one year in your streak. Its like your body is taking time to stabilize itself to a new you. Where you were releasing almost daily, it regulated itself accordingly. Now, its going to take a while to respond to your new behavior. And I believe that is why relapse is so worse. Just like screwing with your system while its updating is worse than not doing an update at all.

    If you are not getting morning wood anymore, its quite obvious that you are in flatline now. You can search about flatline here on this forum and on youtube. Many ppl have discussed their flatline experience in detail.

    I also used to have morning woods while I was PMOing. Our brains literally go into reboot mode when you stop PMO. Flatline actually is a good sign because it means that your brain recovery has started. You should embrace it instead of being scared of it. It will go away naturally IF you don't relapse and do the reboot as its supposed to be done. Flatline can take anywhere between 3-12 months to go away completely depending upon the addiction severity.

    Yes Brothers, we as muslims should be leading this movement. We suffered because we went astray from the path defined by Allah and His beloved prophet. Watching porn which comes under shamelessness is considered one of the major sins in Islam. Further, masturbation is also strictly prohibited. And now we are coming to know the benefits of not watching porn and not masturbating. We are not supposed to waste something so precious that our body makes with so many nutrients.

    If you do not get morning wood, but you did not start noFap yet, is it flatline? Or is it ED

    Its probably PIED. Typical symptom of porn addiction.

    It is obviously PIED. The term flatline is used when you experience withdrawals on nofap journey. Also as a sidenote, If you have already started experiencing no morning wood while on porn, its high time to get on the nofap wagon to cure yourself physically and mentally.

    Out of interest, why did you never consider viag** if you wanted so badly to have sex with your wife? It is of course a temporary aid but alongside a reboot it can prove quite successful.

    That is the last thing a young healthy male will go for. Esp for someone like me who could easily have erection with porn, I knew the problem is in my brain and not the penis. In that case, I am not sure how effective would viagra be. There are people on this forum who tried it with mixed results mainly because viagra is designed to be a temporary escape from ED, not PIED. ED is physical in nature while PIED is mental in nature. Viagra is a band aid for the physical aspect, not the mental one.

    Moreover, I wasn't looking for a temporary cure and Viagra is not even that for PIED. I was looking to heal myself permanently like any guy at the age of only 29 should and would. Especially with something that come with its own side effects and can only further your addiction. I wouldn't be surprised to know that brands like viagra are well in unison with porn industry with young people rampantly consuming these drugs for a temporary cure and nobody including doctors to communicate the real issue.

    As with many other ailments out there, if you only try to manage your symptoms through drugs without getting to the core problem, your body would never heal. It will keep bustling out different issues in one form or the other with you switching from one medicine to another.

    Yeah I understand that, you make good points :)

    I personally have found it useful sometimes as a little boost to confidence as my ED is more anxiety based than porn induced (although I’m sure one entailed the other). The confidence that a successful experience brings with the help of a little dose is extremely healing for people who have only experienced hurtful perceived ‘failures’.

    I agree it’s just a temporary help however, and is more useful as an aid when you want to have sex but are fearful that due to various factors it won’t work.

    It’s interesting that it is looked upon quite unfavourably by this community, as I think it really saved my sense of self as it showed me that I can actually do this (I was taking such a small amount that it was basically placebo) but even just that little support made me feel so much less anxious.

    But that’s just my experience and thanks for replying! :)

    I have only tried sildenafil, I take a small portion of a pill an hour before I anticipate a sexual encounter. It is then active for about 4 hours afterwards where I find it easy as pie to get and maintain a good erection. It’s not like in the movies where u just have a rock hard one from the moment it kicks in, it’s more like the process of gettin hard becomes streamlined with no barriers and it’s just a lot easier. It has done wonders for my anxiety!

    I don't think so, flatline starts few days after starting nofap,it is non-linear process,you can have several flatlines during your reboot
    During flatline your penis will look lifeless,you feels as if you are a new born baby or a castrated man, no libido, no urges,and no any masculine sexual feelings.
    If you have no morning woods before starting nofap, then it is likely ED about to chase you and not flat line, flat line happens during nofap not after nofap.
