Recovery
« on: February 20, 2021, 04:09:24 AM »
Hello everyone! I'm 17 years old. I am recovering from PIED.I apologize in advance for my English, I do not know it very well, since I am from Russia. I am a virgin, despite the fact that I had two attempts to have sex and all failed due to the fact that I did not feel aroused.Overall, I lead an active and prosperous social life. I work out in the gym, I do well at school, I have friends and girlfriends. And I'm happy with life.However, my sexual dysfunction ruins my life extremely, I think you guys understand me perfectly.At the moment, I have not masturbated or watched porn for 60 days.But I don't feel any sex drive. I have morning erections, but they are 20-30% maximum. In this thread, I will share with you my successes and thoughts on the reboot.I will turn 18 in 8 months. I really hope that I can recover by the 18th birthday. For the next 4 months I plan to concentrate on my studies and other important matters. And I hope that after this time (6 months) I will have positive changes in terms of libido, which will give me the motivation to start a relationship with a girl in order to rewire my brain. So there you go guys. I really hope that everything will work out for me. I wish you all good luck and success in the fight for your life!

By the way, friends, I want to tell you a story that happened to me at the age of 15. I hung out with friends and we drank alcohol. At the end of the party, I went to bed with my friend, who was as drunk as me. In general, we tried to have sex, but I didn't get up, however, we kissed and I touched her body. The next day I woke up with a wild boner and had a dream that we had sex with her. I have never felt such a boner and those sensations that I had for two days. Now I understand that I rearranged my brain in this way at that moment.But unfortunately, I still did not understand the true reasons for my ED in those years. I just jerked off to porn for two days because I didn't know I had PIED.After these two days, everything returned to normal and I did not feel such a powerful libido.What do you think, if my brain was able to reset itself after this attempt at having sex, it makes sense after a while to rest from any sex stimulation. Try it again, but in a relaxed atmosphere and with your girlfriend. Can the brain reboot itself again like it did two years ago?

Hey Max, Welcome to RN! Awesome that you are tackling this problem at such a young age.

First, congrats on 60 days!! That is incredible. It is also a great sign that you're getting morning erections. Most rebooters report that morning wood continues to get stronger over time. And the lack of libido is also fairly normal for rebooters. We call this the "flatline." Here is a video I made on the flatline that you may find helpful: https://youtu.be/rXfZwNqVDVA

Just know this, it will get better with time. Be patient, and let your brain regain sensitivity and rewire. When in doubt, go see a doctor just to be sure, but if you're otherwise physically healthy, then time away from porn will help.

Yes. The brain can always change. Thousands of other guys in your situation have recovered, and so can you. Keep truckin and much love.

During these two months of reboot, from time to time I had dreams where I was watching porn or scenes from long-forgotten porn videos that I watched were just playing in my head. And today I had an erotic dream where everything was normal, like I was there and one friend. I think this is a good sign, perhaps my brain is starting to work in a more correct and real direction.
