Can anyone help me on this forum? I’m about to go on a year of no porn and still have pied.

    I don’t know how to get myself out of the flatline... this is absolutely terrible. Imagine being in the flatline for about 11 months. I thought I was almost cured weeks ago but then multiple O’s with my gf send me back into the flatline. I have done two long hardmode streaks of 50 and 70 days. Do I need to do one large streak of hardmode of multiple months to cure myself. I’m seriously depressed because of what my body is going through right now. Genital shrinkage and everything . I need serious help, one year almost porn free and nothing much to show. I mediate daily 20 mins each day and hit the gym a lot. I notice my dick gets even more numb after working out which is weird to me.

    I can totally understand that you feel bad, but unfortunately for some people (especially younger people who started watching porn early) it seems to take a long time until they are completely recovered. One of my favorite users back in the day was fugu. For him it got slowly better but he still had some problems after orgasms with his girlfriend after more than a year. I've seen recovery stories from guys who needed two years to recover. I'm not telling you this to scare you but to give you hope. It took these people a very long time, but they finally made it.

    That you made progress a few weeks ago and had some orgasms with your girlfriend is a positive sign. This shows that something had changed for the better. It's not unusual to fall back into a deep flatline after orgasms, even if it's with your girlfriend. But while that makes things harder (or less hard...) immediately afterwards, it won't hurt in the long run. It might be a good idea to do some hard mode for a few weeks/months again and see if things get better. Just some intimacy with your girlfriend without orgasms.

    Don't lose hope and keep going. I'm sure it'll be worth it.

    Yes.

    If long streaks of hard mode have helped you, wouldn't it make sense to go even longer?

    Ya but like if I go on a long streak and have one orgasm after that streak maybe I’ll go back into the flatline? It’s like at what point does my body stop sending my back into the flatline?

    So keep abstaining until you never flatline. It's that simple.

    I just wish I knew how long that would be... should I expect to go a couple of months hardmode? 70 days felt like it was enough to cure me but then one orgasm sent me back into a flatline

    When you say enough what do you mean, how well were your erections/libido at that point? Did you go in and out of flatlines?

    I felt like I was slowly coming out of a flatline and had good erections with my gf but then like three orgasms within 24 hours from oral and shit put me back in this flatline that seems like it’s never ending

    Yeah you probably would have gone back into the flatline even if you didn't have the orgasms and still retained your progress. So try and abstain longer.

    I agree with Guts.

    Hard mode really is the answer - yes some people can stay away from P better if they're Oing, no P is the priority. But it's not a flawless long term strategy for people who need 'deep' recovery.

    I started having sex for the first time in my life 1 year ago with my girlfriend. I've seen a good amount of progress while Oing. But I've reached a serious plateau. There is simply nothing like the feeling of energy, libido, EQ and MW while being on a good hard mode streak.

    Just ensure when you O, don't think "well I've O'd, I may as well keep Oing". Get back on the horse right away.

    Sometimes if I O from sex and it breaks a streak I can bounce back within a week. If I O multiple times in a day/week with my gf it takes over 2 weeks for me to feel like I'm not in the negative.

    You have definitely got something to show for one of abstaining - your body and mind are slowly recovering. Imagine how your body would be if you hadn't abstained. The time to recover is different for everyone, how long did you use for? Also, there are medical reasons for erectile dysfunction - so it could be worth researching that.
