Has anybody here actually cured their pied?
I'm cured from PIED, but not close to being healed overall.
Good to hear. How long did it take for you to be able to get it up to when you're with someone?
Starting to get healed after about 60 days, completely healed after 80-90 days
Good luck, hang in there
Thanks man Did you try talk to women during your reboot or did you just leave them completely? Sorry I'm new to this
No need to apologize, happy to answer
I have talked to women during the reboot, both on tinder and out partying. I have made progress, but maybe it would have been faster if I just did hardmode.
i did. It took me like 80 days to be fully healed by my ED. Now i'm not fully recovered but i'm on my way i guess!
I have been in hard mode for about 40 days, I think I'm in kind of a flatline. Looking forward to be being actually able to get with a girl again. Did you go through any flatlines and also how did you know you were partially cured after the 80 days?
of course man i went trough flatlines like everyone. I didn't know i was partially cured. I just met this chick i know, she gave me a bj like 7 month before when i wasn't on nofap, and after that nothing. When we came home i can still remember of me thinking something like " what can i do now? how can i explain her that i can't have sex?". I was worried but my dick worked great out of nowhere
she in my girlfriend since that day
I “cured” my PIED when I did a 90 day reboot. It wasn’t a certain day when I noticed things were working again. Rather, it was a gradual progression. I would say after a month is when I started to see progress and realize that this really could work. At 90 days I knew it wasn’t fully cured, so I went longer. I would say at about day 120, I could certainly say that my PIED was cured.
I think it would take a year or more to feel like a fully recovered person, though. I still get urges and temptations, the only difference now being that I broke the habit of how to deal with them.
From all the indications I've read thus far it seems this is a gradual progress towards regaining functionality.
hello mate, there are some useful info for you:
5 minutes - heart rate returns to normal.
2-3 days - guilt and shame seems to decrease.
7 days - brain fog lifts.
14 days - prolactin starts to drop.
14 - 21 days - due to drop in prolactin, dopamine sensitivity increases, you can start to enjoy the little things in life again, no longer emotionally numb, energy levels start to increase big time, confidence also increases.
30 days - cravings and flashbacks noticeably reduce.
30-60 days - PIED symptoms disappear or improve. Erections become rock solid, unless you're PIED symptoms are severe. Confidence keeps rising
42 days - ΔFosB (DeltaFosB) that has accumulated around the nucleus accumbens starts to remove itself. This makes it possible for the neurons in the porn-addicted pathways to now start to slowly break up over time without use.
90 days - considered a full reboot for most people, however people with severe PIED will need longer. Confidence still rising
120 - 150 days - symptoms of severe PIED disappear or improve.
Keep in mind that there is a variance to all this as well; for some considerably shorter amount of time, and for others considerably longer. I am going to be in the longer camp myself.
Thanks that's really helpful to get a rough timeline on it. All I want is to be cured for college next September
I'm 18 and have PIED. I heard it takes longer for it to go away when you have been PMOing during puberty, which I did, and is that true?
Well. Honestly, I think many (most?) dudes PMO-ed it during puberty.
Just stick to it, it'll get better. And keep in mind bro, the process is a good thing. Don't think of it as denying yourself something, but you're gaining a whole ton of a lot more in terms of quality of life, and that's even true before the PEID is completely resolved. There are a lot of good things to this process
i would say that 90 day in not a fully reboot but just the lower amount of time in witch you'll 100% see some improvements
Curious as to how anyones first sexual performance was like after recovering? Awkward, nervous, unable or successful?
Would you say these numbers apply even if you have sex or only in hardmode?
In general, does sex have a bad affect on you like masturbation or is there an actual difference in health?
