    I started this journey back in March 2019.
    Severe case of PIED

    Had a few streaks in that year, the longest one at 100+ days without orgasm but I was still edging and fantasizing every night.I didn't know any better then.
    March 2020 I get into a relationship with this girl I really liked. Relationship lasted around 4-5 months. Completely dead dick at the beginning ,it improved after we got a bit more comfortable. I was putting a lot of pressure on my self to perform which was the worst thing for my progress.

    During those months i got a lot of oral sex (decent erections for oral,but short lived ones),even penetrated a few times.I had a lot of orgasms and none of them felt good.I wasn't making progress because of all the Oing.
    I knew I had to change my approach.

    I broke up with her and I am on day 103 hard mode now. Pretty rough flatline since then but my dick is looking more alive and I often have strong-ish morning wood. Now I feel like I am actually making progress and I think attempting anything sexual will only cause harm at this point

    I really want to thank you all for sharing your experiences here,it has helped me a lot.
    I will be sticking with this for as long as I need to.
    My goal is to feel human again and this means cutting out all of the things that take that way.
    (social media,novelty seeking online,stimulants)

    Take care and stick to hard mode fellas..

    I started consuming porn and masturbating to it at around 13 years old when my parents got me a PC.On average i would PMO twice or three times a day.
    No experiences with girls until I was 18 and I had my first relationship at 20 which lasted 3 years. First time I attempted sex my dick showed absolutely no sign of life. After a month into the relationship I was able to have sex.(with forced erections most of the time).Sometimes I even felt great and had amazing sex but that was like 5 times in 3 years.I continued to PMO the whole time and I thought that my erection issues were due to something else.Anyway we break up and 3 months later i get in another realtionship.PIED was getting worse. At around March 2019 I discover NoFap and everything finally clicks. I ended the relationship and started on my journey. When I started I was PMOing with a 30% erection so I had severe PIED.Porn wasn't getting me hard.
    Went on a few streaks that year but I was still edging and fantasizing all the time. I was 10 times better than when I started but no where near good.I relapsed at march 2020 for a couple of weeks (PMO) at a time I was really feeling like shit.Then I got in another relationship for 5 months making close to zero progress until I realized and that I really have to abstain from Orgasm.Quitting porn wasn't a problem for me.I was addicted to the hit I got when orgasming.Every time I would orgasm I would crash badly.Feeling like shit all the time.It was very clear to me that my brain needed a break for stimulation.
    I am now close to 4 months hardmode and things are looking way better down there.Flatline is a bitch but there is no other way around it.
    I also realized that instagram is almost porn at this point and cut that shit out.In general i feel way better when when I am not online.

    In general from the signs I'm seeing in my situation I am certain I will recover completely.Time will show...

    Wonderful to hear. I think the fact that you're convinced it's orgasm addiction is what's going to carry you to recovery.
    Just checking, no medications or anything like that in your past?

    I wanna do long streaks of hardmode because I feel like my body needs it too, but I have a girlfriend and we’ve been in a great relationship for years so I don’t wanna lose what we have or anything like that

    Looking back I'd say that I've been mildly flatlining since at least 20yo.When I started rebooting I got them real bad Flatlines.Somedays I even felt all those things everyone calls superpowers(dude no kidding that shit is real).This is my first time close to 5 months hard mode and I really feel like I am going somewhere now.

    That is a really hard situation.If you ask me,I'm all about hard mode.It is a matter of health beyond PIED.If your body is telling you it can't handle orgasms you should listen to it. Always listen to your body.

    Dude I laughed so hard at the finger comment.lol
