Hi Cabber

From your description is sounds like PIED. It could also be a little performance anxiety. If you had no difficulty getting off to porn then I think it is PIED. You could try to get hard just by touching yourself with NO fantasy or imagining porn scenes you have watched. If you have difficulty getting and maintaining an erection then I would say you have PIED.

Either way, if I were you I would stop watching porn. Believe me, porn will really cause you big problems in the long run, so don't make your situation worse. I've rebooted successfully in the past only to return to porn use. I know rebooting works and will cure PIED. Unfortunately, because I relapsed my current reboot is taking a long time. I'm now on day 169 of no porn and no masturbation and I still can't get hard with my partner for sex. I'm not saying your reboot will take this long, but you don't want to screw yourself up as much a me. So, quit porn and masturbation and I hope you'll soon be having sex with your girlfriend.

If you enter the flatline, don't check your erections by watching porn. The flatline means that it feels like your penis is dead. There is nothing you can do but just wait out the flatline and try to rewire wth your girlfriend.

Good luck and stay strong!  ;)

Ages 20-29 / My Recovery Journal - EC
« Last post by EasyCoffee on June 18, 2018, 11:32:41 PM »
Hi guys,

Looking to start my recovery journal which I hope will help keep me on track. I'll aim to post daily on this site - will make it a goal - and this hopefully will help me keep on track with my recovery.

Want to be both porn free and no fap - have tried M-ing but it hasn't seemed to help me quit for good.

I'm on day 2 today.

** Day 2
- Feeling very anxious today. Probably 8-9/10 anxiety. Feeling regret and anger at myself.
- Have made a 7x7 grid on a page which I'm going to cross off on a day by day basis. I think should help me see my progress in my recovery.
- Need to work on staying away from the computer, as I think boredom is one of triggers.

Take call all :)

Day 3:

- Update to yesterday: It was a chill day! Woke up and watched some world cup, hung out with some friends, did 3.1 miles of running, I went and tutored, and tried to keep myself as occupied as possible! I did slip up a little bit and watch this Erika Lust movie that one of my friends had suggested to me and it was interesting lol, but I didn't relapse. However, I did watch a video last night on edging and how it can be very bad even to watch porn without masturbation, or even trying to masturbate without orgasms, so needless to say that's not happening again.

- Update to today: Hella busy day! Had work in the morning till around, went to the beach, got back and went running for another 2 miles with a friend, we had dinner later, and now about to hit the bed! It was great being occupied, I really didn't want to be faced with these stupid down time so I've realized that If I'm just occupied it's so much easier not to relapse. I think exercise will be my way to alleviate stresses and also diminish my down time.

Goals for tomorrow:
- Exercise: Light cardio warm up 3 mins, Bench Press (barbell, flatbench, machine), Triceps (skullcrushers, traditional)
- Do work in the morning
- Run some errands to not come home early
- Hang out with friends at 2 for the World Cup game
- Maybe go to dinner with friends as a get together
- Pray to keep me grounded
- Try to read some more of the Noah Church and 12 steps book recommended by Doc Washington

It's great, you're working very hard, we're together
My life has long been out of control. My way is to give my questions to God (or Jesus and Shakya Muni Buddha), and often pray to help me stay awake.
Bless you, my brother

Porn Addiction / Re: I think i got caught up! Feelibg bad

I don't know how old you and your sister are, but I think you might have to talk to her about this. If your sister is young and knows nothing about porn, this might introduce her to it. I think you might have to sit her down and talk to her about the fact that you are not happy about being a porn user and you want to quit because it does negative things to you. If you are already feeling guilty and embarrassed about the possibility that she saw what you were watching, imagine how guilty you will feel if you got her started on porn. Have a think about it. I do think it's a serious situation and you do have some responsibility regarding your sister.

Well, things have been going okay I guess. I had a relapse where I randomly jacked off in the bathroom at work to some random hooker porno. Totally compulsive and not great.

I don't think I'll ever be able to beat this struggle, but the battle continues....

This whole process has been one hell of a ride. I just got all my beard and skin care products in and I'm going to start a youtube channel in the next week or so. I'm in an odd spot, I'm starting to see myself as a man and I'm trying to get everyone in my life to do the same. life is weird for me right now.
