Hi everyone,

I have been struggling for years with low libido, sometimes unable to get erections even with porn (not all the time) and general low mood etc. Always thought it was hormonal or something wrong with me physically. However I came across reboot nation and no fap etc and all the symptoms matched mine from all information I read. I did try to reboot a good few months ago but keep failing. I started going to a sex therapist who deals with OCD behaviour which covers long term porn use and the wiring of the brain. She has confirmed my problem too and has challenged me to quit.

However, I keep getting to 6 days so usually from sunday to saturday then I just fail. Its like as soon as I have a day off and get a laptop on my hand I start it again. My libido generally comes back a bit after day 3 of stopping then dissapears a bit (or I think it does) then something tells me top open a new tab with porn and I get that overwhelming excitement like my libido has come back with a bang. I then keep browsing and before you know it im not really turned on anymore but still looking for something to give me that hit. Its terrible. I know people will say "oh just dont get near your laptop or whatever" but i just get drawn towards it and its like my brain says "well its been 6 days, you've done well so you've earned this" and I talk myself into it. Can anyone relate or give me advice? Many thanks.

I have a long term gf and we havent had sex in a while. She doesn't know my issue and I want to resolve it before it becomes a massive problem for us but really struggling to get this recovery off the ground!

Ages 30-39 / My nofap journal - I'm posting my journey

I have suffered what I think is PIED since I was 19....I am now 31. My libido before that used to be through the roof! Back then I was lucky (or unlucky enough) to be at the age where laptops and high speed broadband were available and that was it, I was watching porn 3-4 times a day maybe even more from the age of 16. Then one day when I was 19 something happened. It was like my libido just disappeared and fapping and watching porn just wasn't fun. I started struggling to get erections on and off and when I was with real females it didn't happen full stop. I also stopped getting morning wood and my general mood was low and I started getting anxiety. It got to a point a few months ago where I had ED with porn and over the past couple of years vanilla porn just didn't do it for me. I couldn't get an erection through mental fantasies, that was the most depressing thing! Anyway, over the years I have been to see urologists, GPs, endos etc and nothing was found. I have slept with nearly 100 women in that time but most of that was either after drinking or using cialis lol.

Then I found this website....after reading up on the subject of PIED for a few weeks I decided maybe I should give it a go.

I started nofap a few weeks back and lasted 10 days with no porn and no MO...I started feeling really good but then I had a few drinks felt horny and PMO. Then the next day I was really horny, full erection and I just binged. Since then though my erections have been good and my libido has actually not been too bad. However I have decided to start again and it's now been 5 days :)

Days 1-5 so far: the past couple of mornings I have had morning wood, yesterday especially I really had the urge but it was 5.30am and I just got up and went to the gym to train so I dodged it.

My libido yesterday seemed quite high, and this morning too. I saw an image of a semi naked girl on my social media and I had that racing heart feeling, you know, the one you got when you were 16 and you were excited. I then fantasised about a girl I had sex with last year and I was so excited and I had a full erection but didn't do anything, I resisted the urge. I can't remember the last time I had that....anyway, it seems as though its a very good start and I will add to this in a few days.

Thanks everyone who gave me advice. After a decade of searching for an answer to my problem I think I may have just found it :)

Hi guys,

new to this but a bit of background. I am 31 years old and have been watching porn since like 14 or so. Sex drive was always amazing and id say by about 18 thats when the internet porn started getting quicker, more accessible, I had my own laptop. I started literally pulling it to porn like 5-6 times a day. Anyway around 19 years of age or so my libido dropped a bit and became a little patchy, lost a bit of interest in it, couldn't always maintain an erection. Got tested for hormone problems, urology tested me for various other things and all normal. Then I got a gf and just couldn't do it most the time, I just felt not in the mood and couldn't get it up but then id go home and without porn manage to get it up but with no interest.

10 years on its got to a point where now, even watching porn isn't doing for me, and i am struggling with erections even on my own which is a first as even with low libido i've been able to get it up using my own mental fantasy. Since being single 5 years ago I have slept with nearly 100 women, mostly using the odd ciailis tablet but some where I have managed to perform and have been aroused without.

The past couple of months have been crap and my libido is shot, erections are struggling even on my own and I dont know what to do as physically i'm fit and healthy. i had hormone bloods taken and my testosterone is higher than most 18 year olds! I do have a bit of general anxiety so I worry a bit more than others about things in every day life and I do have mood swings and sometimes feel tired. I do lack enjoyment in life these days too.

I think even when i am not in the mood for sex I want to watch porn anyway for the sake of it which is probably the addiction and this can lead to weaker erections and dull orgasms.

Anyway, I have come across this and I seem to relate to a lot of the symptoms the guys have on here. I think the difference is though, not even porn is doing it for me anymore, however could my issue still be PIED? Has anyone experienced the same?


Sorry for the long post but any input would be appreciated :)

Thanks

I have give it up past couple of days with the hope to refrain for a few months just to try but i am really running out of answers and it's getting to me!
