    Hi all,

    I rebooted successfully years back. I was healthy and good from years 2013 - 2016, and then I hit a rough patch in life, and got back into some PMO-like habits. I say "PMO-like" because most of the time, I wasn't watching porn. I do, however, have a vivid imagination, and I used that, and edged most of the time.

    Anyway. I'm back on track this year. Since 1/5, I've had streaks of 2 weeks, 1 week, 10 days, and a month. At the moment, I'm a week clean. I've decided to stop drinking (maybe forever), as they have caused 2 of my relapses. Other than that, I exercise and meditate, so I'm hoping those will push me in the right direction.

    Anyway, at the moment, I feel like I"m flatlining. Basically no sexual urges at all. I've noticed a few flashes here and there - like on Thursday morning, I woke up with a semi that I was able to flex into an erection without any sexual fantasy. Yesterday evening, I had some sexual thoughts as well, and felt myself feeling aroused. I was okay with this because I wasn't having sexual fantasy or anything, it was just an urge for sex, and I had a semi here too.

    Other than that, things have been quiet. There were a few instances where I was with girls I knew, and felt the slightest bit of arousal, which is great. That said, I'm 28, so still pretty young, and know what it feels like when I'm totally back to normal. Hoping my current flatline doesn't last to long...

    Other than that, I've felt pretty low energy. I'm probably dealing with "mild depression" part of flatline. I am still functional, however, everything feels a bit like a drag. We'll see, hopefully this lifts too...

    Hey bud,

    Not sure if you’re still active here but keep up the good work. All we can do is try and try again. Glad you’re avoiding substances though! That’s just healthy in general and more so for us folk struggling.

    I am also 28 so here’s to us squashing this bad habit!
