    Ive been here before, my past record 120 something days, but the flatline never lasted this long.

    Is anyone else experiencing a different kind of streak than what normally happens?

    I was still flatlining (i would say withdrawal symptoms) after 300 days, and there's people still having it after a year up to almost 2...

    300 days what the fudge! Maybe the flatline means different things to different people but if I had no libido still after 300 days i'd probably seek medical help cos the thought of that scares me

    No, withdrawal symptoms are another things.

    Ah I understand. Yes withdrawal symptons i.e "cravings". They always persist for me, like the urge is always there, just more subtle

    I've never flatlined. Is there anything bad about it, though? [​IMG]

    Withdrawal symptoms are not cravings, they're withdrawal symptoms.

    Don't think that's necessarily a bad thing

    To me flatline is the frame which contains withdrawals acute and post, no motivation, no libido, anhedonia, and depression. I have 10 months off pmo and still having these symptoms back and forth.

    But I mean what is bad about flatline? I've never had it, so I don't know, but you seem a bit worried about it. But if it just means having no desire for porn/sex/masturbation, that actually sounds like it makes it easier to not relapse.
    Although I do remember one time when I hadn't had morning wood for some days and decided to test my erection by watching porn... [​IMG]

    There is nothing "bad" about it, as such. I don't mind having a reduced libido - I was merely stating that previously it has never lasted as long this time around. When I implied being worried I was referring to the other poster who talked about it lasting 300 days, but he has since stated he was talking about withdrawal symptoms, and not flatlining
