New to this. Is what i'm describing PIED?
« on: April 16, 2017, 06:45:51 AM »
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

Just to add to the above... I don't get morning wood - that stopped when I started getting low libido etc when I was 18-19. I haven't taken any anti depressants or any drugs of that kind, I don't take recreational drugs, I am fit and in shape, I no longer smoke and I only drink once every few weeks. I also found that over time I needed more niche porn to satisfy me as the Vanilla stuff wasn't really doing it for me.

sounds like severe case of PIED where even porn cant get you going anymore. anxiety, lacking enjoyment in life and other things you described fits the picture perfectly. you gone to doctors, checked everything so there is only one thing that can cause trouble and it is causing most of us here a lot of trouble with erections. you know the game, quit it.

you slept with nearly 100 women in 5 years, now thats some confidence on display. are you just born that way or you worked on it?

Hi Nikola,

Yeah I tried to quit last week. 5 days or so I didn't even think about it then the 6th day I was out drinking came back and my libido was high so I failed. I am trying again from tomorrow though, hopefully after a few weeks I could be OK, especially after 5 days  of quitting and my libido came back a bit. Well it was probably more 100 women in 3 years to be honest as the first two years I was useless lol. I am a very confident person especially with females, and I'm not bad looking and in good shape so guess it helps. I think I just have the gift of the talk when it comes to chatting them up lol. Although to be honest at the moment I am not really bothered, I just want to feel good again in general!

hey jay,

maybe you can start thinking about it. my story behind dozens of relapses are like yours, i just dont think about it i forget about it and all of a sudden im fucked up. treat this like if you are addicted to heroin, you wouldnt be forgetting that you are getting off hardcore drugs. when you are alone, when you go out, when you are about to go to sleep or take shower... whatever your patterns are, think about your addiction during the day and how to stay on track. im sure this will affect your decision making and help you in the long run. know about withdrawals, cravings and why they are happening. read about things like that. porn addiction can be as bad as hardcore drug addiction, its not to be taken lightly if you want to recover.

if you are having severe PIED, it can take longer than few weeks to get better. after few weeks you may just get into flatline. expect 1-2 years to fully recover but after few weeks you will be much better off than you are now though.

YOU CAN DO THIS  ;D

Man classic PIED....same symptoms as me...I used to have a a really goof libido...which in some ways turned me towards porn but once you find out whats wrong that is the best part.

Have a look at my thread " Ed for the masculine male" maybe you can relate to what I am saying on it.

The game is best known for its dark sense of humor and its graphic violence. Expect to see a lot of blood and guts. Your goal is to go far across each level without letting your character get hurt. The game is over even the smallest body part injuries. It takes much patience to finish the goal. Is this much challenging? Make your best efforts to survive in this glory and funny game. We can find a way to break through Even if we can't find heaven, I'll walk through hell with you. happy wheels

This sounds so familiar, except I didn't bothered to go and check me up on doctors. I am almost one month without PMO and slowly (very slowly) I start feeling some improving with this... on the other hand be prepared because your brain will gonna work hard to trick you for you to find a reason to go and check out on porn. If you've been there before (attempting a reboot) you know what that usually turning out into (binge...). I also have experienced that even, at times at porn my erection wouldn't be good. For the past 2 days my brain has been trying to trick me and it's hard to explain as it doesn't present me very logical reasons besides the "Remember this!" like some creepy ex-girlfriend as if it's not gonna harm you. Fact is that if you check it you're opening up again for a compulsive behaviour. That's where everything starts falling apart. The first small signs of recovery are something to be excited about, I can say, but maybe one has to commit not using such energy on porn despite how happy inside a person starts to feel.

I can only but wish you good luck on your journey! Try your best to not make it easy to porn (as I said, the brain will start fooling around for you to find a reason, as absurd it might be, to check on porn)!

When you had your bloods taken was this just for test levels or did you have a full blood panel?
