I am 24 going on 25 and I have had serious PIED for 4-5 years, to the point where I couldn't even get full erections during PMO, but I still get morning wood sometimes. I have been without PMO for 2 months. I have not seen any improvement, though with the issue being as bad as it is, I wasn't expecting to this early. The pattern seems to be that I'll have a period of 1-2 weeks without significant temptations, but then the temptations will get very high for a few days, and then back to lower levels, and it'll repeat. Now during these times of high temptation, I've found myself fantasizing about sex from a first-person perspective some of the time, but also about P at other times. So my question is: how much is this hurting my recovery from PIED? Can you recover from PIED without having god-like control of your mind? So far I have focused mostly on just abstaining from the physical act of PMO, and to some extent I have tried to stop fantasizing when I catch myself doing it, but it's much harder than abstaining from the physical act. Am I not able to make progress because I still have vivid memories of P in my head sometimes? If anyone has had experience with recovering from serious PIED, that would be especially helpful.
