    Yo. It's kind of cool to be sitting on a bus headed back to College, seeing a pretty girl sitting in a couple of seats ahead putting her stuff in the overhead cabin. All of the sudden, like magic, I almost rip my freaking jeans

    That's the magic of being rebooted. I respond to life. Not that I walk around with boners all the time now, but I feel human again. I notice ladies noticing me, I feel as if Ladies notice me more, and I don't see them as a mere object for my bidding any longer. I'm able to see them as people, and treat them as such. I have developed real friendships with women, nurtured a dog, and have shown my family more love than I ever have previous to my reboot.

    So what is it that changed? Not only am I able to have sex with women, but I can fulfill my (as well as others) human need for companionship. I can feel again, and I can feel when other people aren't feeling so well. I have Wet Dreams almost twice a month, it's like I'm going through puberty for the first time... In some weird medical scientific way I probably am going through developmental stages that were stopped by Porn.

    Guys. Rebooting changed my life, and my life is freaking awesome today. You can do this too. Inform yourselves and keep supporting your brothers on this website to stay "sober". Try and find a buddy in real life who is going through the same shit.

    Anyways I just felt the need to post this. Good luck, and good riddance to Porn and its devastating side effects.

    Your story is pretty damn good. Nice to hear from you again about things like this. It seems a world away when your still relapsing.

    Ditto. Around day 400 I started making friends, noticing women, taking care of my body, voice changes, all the stuff of puberty even though I'm 31. Congrats man, here's to continued growth and well being.

    What did you do other than stay away from porn? Stay away from orgasm at all? Did you have a partner throughout to rewire with? I'm 500+ days away from porn but still can't get fully erect and still no libido, erections from seeing sexy women etc.

    500!!

    Damn. I need to lower my expectations. I'm 54 days in and I keep reading reports of people with extensive mileage like yours who haven't recovered. I think I'm in a 2nd flatline now too. Have you seen any improvements in those 500 days?

    Actually, I'm 2 years without porn on April 1st so when I do the math, I'm actually 600+ days!

    Improvements I've had is that I no longer leak semen while on the toilet, I no longer dribble urine moments after peeing, increased sensitivity and slightly stronger erections than at the beginning but still never 100%. I also get regular morning wood (which had disappeared for years before I started rebooting) but again, never 100% strength. I've also had 5 wet dreams in the last 13 months. The only wet dreams I've had in more than 10 years!

    I'm actually 139 days into no orgasm now and in a flatline except morning woods/libido. I shrivel up and have no spontaneous erections the rest of the day though :(

    So what do you think accounts for not having fully resolved it at this stage?

    I've never had a wet dream in my life, but it may have something to do with starting MO to pictures of women's breasts at the age of just 4 or 5 in prone position. Corrected that method once I got to about 12/13 but still - all that time I was addicted (little did I know) to P and then the internet came along...

    If I had a wet dream, for me it would feel like the mechanics might be starting to function right without being exhausted.

    Sometimes I fear all of this is placebo and that I've retarded myself beyond redemption. But I'll keep plugging away nonetheless.

    Thanks for your insight.

    I don't know if I even will fix. Assuming I will, I'd say that too many orgasms has been the problem so far. The longest I've went without orgasm (before my current 139 days) is 57 days and other than that, I've only went 2-3 weeks here and there, occasionally having many orgasms in a short space of time. Like 5 in 3 days for example.

    All my orgasms were with my girlfriend. I feel completely rewired because I no longer think of porn or wander off into fantasy during sex. I only crave real sex and my dreams are of real sex, no porn. I've started thinking recently that I feel more sexually exhausted than addicted to porn. Stopping porn wasn't difficult for me.

    Yeah I also am not missing P much to be honest. I would just like to use my appendage in the way it's supposed to. You said you haven't fully recovered your erectile functions, but you say that you've had orgasms with your partner - is that through the use of oral meds or are you performing at a less than ideal percentage of hardness?

    So maybe you need to go over 100 days with no P, no M and no O this time. Do you think having not held out for at least 90 days on the O front has been a negating factor?

    Like I said in the previous post, I have went over 90 days without orgasm. I'm currently at day 139 of no orgasm. I haven't masturbated since December 2013. Every orgasm from then up until October 1st - 2014 has been through sex or blow job. I'm 139 days without orgasm and still going. I plan going to at least 150 days before deciding whether or not to try an orgasm. Only ONE though and then I'll abstain from orgasm for a minimum of 8 weeks after that.

    Every orgasm I've had is with a partial erection. I can still have sex but it's with a weak erection. My sensitivity is fine. The main problem is the lack of enjoyment on my girlfriends end which in turn, makes it less enjoyable for me too.
