    OK, I wanted to throw this out and see what you think. Before we realized that our problems may be related to our porn addictions, we all tried various supplements in hopes of overcoming ED, delayed ejaculation, and other sexual dysfunctions. I know its true for me, and from my research its true for a lot of guys. So, I was wondering if any of the supplements or nootropics that are supposed to be good for your brain and mental cognition would help with the reboot process? Thinking about things like Ginko Biloba, L-Dopa, DHA, B-12, L-Tyrosine, Piracetam, Choline, DL-Phenylalanine, and so on. Welcome all thoughts and discussion

    I think I'm going to experiment and see what happens. Today I started taking DHA (Fish Oil), L-Tyrosine, Ginko Biloba, L-Dopa, and a multivitamin supplement designed to improve cognition called Opti Mind. All are supposed to be beneficial for your brain function and neurological health. Not really sure how I'll gauge the impact on my reboot, but I'll try to post anything I notice.

    I've taken all of those supplements for some length of time except for L-Dopa. I didn't really take any of them while trying to reboot in the past so I'm not sure how much they helped. My knowledge though tells me that B-12 will probably have no effect on rebooting. Ginkgo might have the possibility of making it more difficult as it can promote more bloodflow in the genital area as well as brain and depending on your triggers that might cause a problem. During my reboot I have actually not been on any of those said supplements aside from natural choline via eggs so I'm not sure what to say. The choline, L-Dopa, L-Tyrosine, DL-Phenylalanine all certainly have some sort of effect on dopamine but I personally don't think that it'll have much of an effect on reboot (I say this because I take amphetamine salts and I've extensively studied the effects of dopamine on myself along with dopamine level altering/flooding supplements).

    During the initial first phase of reboot, say like the first week, I've always made sure to take zinc + magnesium citrate at night, and zinc + magnesium citrate + potassium throughout the day in small quantities to help in replenishing semen (in hopes that the semen produced will then be reabsorbed back into the body once the body realizes you are not "using" it, and thus beginning one of the many phases of reboot).

    In the past I've messed with taking Maca at night and/or morning, and I think it actually made reboot more difficult, so maybe avoid that one.

    I've also tampered a lot with the "chasteberry" (vitex agnus-castus) and if it ever had a libido shortening effect, it was probably short lived because I've relapsed numerous times while taking it at varying doses.

    The closest out of any of your listed supps that may have a chance to dampen libido would probably be piracetam. I remember it having a very slight dampening of my libido in the past, but I wasn't even trying to reboot during those times. I'm guessing it would probably help now. Another nootropic that is worth considering would be noopept as it can help your brain's neuro-plasticity heal a bit more faster and during my previous highest nofap streak I remember taking it and not having as much sexual thoughts. Noopept has some varying effects for people and some have reported it actually increasing libido so be careful because you never know.

    In the end, I've finally come to grips with the fact that ultimately, the most important thing is to mentally stay as strong as possible and find a dedicated reason to scare you away from fapping that really "sticks" to you without having to remind yourself "why you shouldn't."
