I am 28 years virgin male. Today is my 63rd day on nofap and semen retention. This is my longest streak.I started mastrubating at the age of 14. I was never able to control my mastrubation habit. There are occasions I have masturbated 6 to 7 times in a day. Just like regular porn user my consumption of porn slowly started from erotic to hardcore.I always wanted to stop this and focus on my carrier. As a first step,I decided to quit porn from jan 1st 2020. I stuck to this decision and stopped porn but masturbated to imagination(No porn visuals) and by looking at normal pics of actresses. This went on for 3 months and I didn’t have any problem with erection or my libido. My ultimate aim was to stop mastrubation. Post 3 months I started seeing slight difference in my erection. It is not regular like before. Somehow I started nofap with semen retention. I dont know is it because of my erectile dysfunction I am doing nofap or because of my will power. I have urges but I don’t get erection. Sometimes I do get erection. It’s not in my control. When I have urges and I dont see erection its really depressing. I am facing severe erectile dysfunction and imagining things which use to give me erection like(Prone bone, Doggy) is not making me excited.I want to know is it because of PIED or ED. I dont take any medication. Please help!!!
Thanks for the reply. Am I in problem? Can you please elaborate. In what way I am improving ?
Thanks for the article. How to identify is it PIED or ED ? Is it because of my ED that I am continuing nofap successfully till now?
It’s been 63 days I masturbated. I dont mastrubate much compared to articles and forums I have gone through. Thanks for staying by side. I ll tag you for help.
Ok. I ll follow semen retention.
Bro @Stayfocused its happens to a hardcore porn addict to get PIED at a particular occasion in their nofap Journey. But it’ll pass away I promise. Stay in there tight. I don’t know about the scientific part of it. But I think what @Adioz has shared contains all the main information.
So all Iam telling you is don’t stop. Don’t test whether your penis is working by masturbating. It’ll take you back to square one.
One of our companion @TheFinalFrontier has also went through the same situation, i believe. Bro what do you think about this?
Sure Bro!!! I ll definitely continue this journey. As long has its PIED I am happy because I ll stay focus to get it cured. Thanks for replying.
63rd day on a streak is not a small thing brother.
Questions with uncertainty of PIED or PE and flatline is always a problem.
Actually brother @Adioz
@Stayfocused had this doubt. Thats why he posted this topic.
I know what pied, ed and flatline is. But i dont know exactly how to put it down in words, so that’s why i tagged few companions to answer this question. That’s all.
Hi man. To be honest. It is Quite hard. It Takes Not just 90 days but way more. Can Take less for some people though. There is No clear answer. When I Manager to Get a huge streak of 145 days. There was a time When I woke up with huge erections consistently It occured probably after 120 days or so. But then I messed Up And Fell into relapse cycle again. And the pied Returns. Also I notice that Düring flatline I sleep too much. It’s your Body needing Recovery. IS IT scary ? Damn yes . Is there any other way ? No. So Stick with it. Don’t fap for 90 days First And See. If Not, Just Wait. Theres Nothing you can do. But it will definitely cure on its own. Maybe try to Get in Touch with real women And notice If you ger erections now. Other than that Get things to do so You dont Care that much about your limp dick. From my understanding, it Takes a Long Time.
@TheFinalFrontier I am sleeping too much these days. I was wondering what is the reason. Thanks for letting me know.You have mentioned PIED returned once you fell into relapse so when ll I get a permanent cure? I thought once i complete my 90 or 120 days streak,I ll get my super erections back to lead a normal life like how ever i was 5 years back.
It is likely that you will Get it Back. But noone has the right answer. It’s different for everybody. But stay in Touch we can Share our experiences. Hopefully then we can Go through this together. I am flatlining too.
Ok. I ll update if there is any progression.
Bro , just be relaxed. It’s become habitual for your brain with excessive dopamine consumption for too much masturbation and porn. Make long streak . Your libido will come back again like never before. Just stay cool . Don’t think unnecessarily. Let the time heal everything.
Sure bro…I ll stay tight and continue the streak. Thanks for replying
