    Hi guys.

    I'm 33 years old and happily married. Currently in a hotel room down route, and after about a 17 year porn addiction, and so enduring the PIED that comes with it, I've decided to break this habit.

    I was online this morning, and I was thinking, 'these girls just aren't doing it for me anymore.'

    That's when I remembered Reboot Nation, that I'd had a skim read over a few years back, and was then forever relegated to my favourites tab.

    We'll, a few hours of reading have passed, and I've realised this PIED problem is surmountable...

    My quick summary - late in high school, I lost interest in girls, as I was always jacking over porn nearly every night. This reduced any relationships that I had to quick flings, and nothing serious really eventuated, as I just lost interest in the girl. It got to the point where I knew a girl was into me, but I just wouldn't care.

    Fast forward to seven years ago, and I meet my dream girl. I could have sex about one is seven times. Embarrassing as hell, I know. We were really into each other, and she would occasionally cry after the attempt, as she thought I wasn't into her. This made me realise there was a real problem.

    In walks the Levitra prescription, and since then I've used it as a crutch to avoid dealing with the real problem. Since then, I use it about every second or third time we have sex, just to guarantee it's a 100% success. But today, I've come to realise this is not natural, and needs to be changed, for the future of our relationship, and for how much I know it will improve me, as a man. The fact this problem can be overcome naturally, has given me pure motivation. No more feeling empty inside.

    This is Day Zero, and I'm not stopping until this damn PIED is completely cured. I'm going to use this forum as a place I visit whenever I get the urge, rather than let it beat me. I'm also going to keep a random personal diary on this thread, so I can look back and keep myself motivated.

    I've reached the 'flatline' period before, but until today, I never knew it was a good thing.

    Wish me luck.

    It's been 7 days now, and so far so good.

    The first few days were easy, as I was distracted with work. Then I had a few days off, but I managed to keep myself busy with the gym, running and hobbies. It was a bit difficult this morning, as I was down route in a different time zone, and I'd been out drinking with the crew last night. So waking up tired and slightly hungover weakened my resolve. Managed to avoid any slip ups so far, though.

    In the last two days I've noticed I have more of a drive for life in general, have more motivation to connect with people, and strangely, I've realised that it's better to have inner peace, rather than trying to fix a situation, then feeling irritated by it after. Not sure where that came from.

    Welcome and good luck! I’m at day 7 for the first time also. From what I can tell, the first 6 days are good, then days 9-12 are rough, then the urges get really bad (depending on how much you’ve consumed before you started reboot). Someone correct me if I’m wrong.

    Welcome..the fist seven days we are in a mission, and its exciting. Then reality kicks in. You can do this. Journaling helps. And doing positive things everyday.
