Severe Pied

I’m 123 days into nofap and still struggling from some pretty severe pied. I’ve pretty much had a physical flatline from day 1. It’s really taking it’s toll on my mental health. I’m just terrified I won’t be cured for years and it’s crushing my confidence. I’m 18 and can’t get hard.

Anyone who’s struggling to stop watching porn let this be a reminder to you. It’s turned my life upside down.

thats quite a long time... do you have any other symptoms that persist as well? everyone has a different timeline for recovery. have you looked into it being something physical as well as porn related?
 
I don’t have any other symptoms. I felt like I had home out of the flatline a few days ago. Felt like I was nearly fixed but then I’ve gone straight back into a deep flatline again. I don’t think it’s physical and I’m a very active 18 year old. I still get morning wood most days although isnt particularly strong.
 
Do you have strongs mornig woods and you can get a erection with masturbation?
I got inconsistent morning wood. However it had been getting harder and more frequent recently. And erections to touch are very inconsistent too. Sometimes it’ll get up easily and solid, other times impossible.

I honestly think that you should reboot for another month or so and then start rewiring without orgasm. Try to just get intimacy with your partner by just getting aroused and focusing on the intimacy, cause ur arousal system is fucked by porn and if you orgasm you risk flatline which only delays recovery. Do rewiring without orgasm for 3 months then reintroduce regular sex with orgasm in ur life, hope that helps!

Honestly, I really do not want to go through rewiring with a girl. It’s too embarrassing for me being. I’m only 18 and girls this age wouldn’t understand it. Even if they do I personally just don’t want to go through it. Is recovery possible through just abstaining?

good idea. it could backfire and ruin your recovery even more. i believe so, personally i didnt rewire like that, but theres many on this forum who can TESTIFY to abstaining as being very effective.

Sex isnt everything, you can just wait till the right one comes and tell her that knowing she'll stay with you

From my point of view rewiering its a myth ... you must be able to get an erection on any erotic stimuli there must be a strong connection between your brain and your cock. The golden rule for me is that any orgasm reduces this connection. why ? I don't know, but that's right ... this is where the phenomenon of lack of morning wood and limp dick described by many appears. If you continue to have orgasms even with your girlfriend you will not heal ... I'm sorry but that's the truth.

I can tell you what i did about it... Stay away from PMO as long as you can , at least 2 or 3 months, and then when you're gonna have sex use some Viagra, cialis or wichone pill you prefered. It will improve your confidence and, after some successfull sex, you will be more comfortable about having sex and, step by step, leave the pills. It really worked to me, even because after have successfull sex sometimes, you're felling OKAY about if you fail once reducing your anxiety.

Cheers Fappy! Hearing that reduces my anxiety considerably. I’ll plan to abstain as long as I need to, to feel fully fixed, and then introduce sex when I’m hopefully healed.
 
Hi Freddie 1503,
I might also recommend getting blood levels checked for testosterone as well since you have had 123 days nofap..could be slim chance since you are 18 years of age, but worthwhile ruling this out to make sure.
