Finally! After several relapses, made it to 40 days. PIED is completely gone, and successfully had sex with 3 women with no fantasizing necessary. The last one was about 5 days ago. I had sex with a random girl twice in about an hour, and I feel like I’ve been in a flatline since. My strong morning wood is gone, and I have no sexual urges. Has this happened to anyone?
At day 38 I was hooking up with a woman and I’d been horny as hell the past week, and I invited her back to mine and I was horny in the lead up but I lost it right at the last moment (which kept me on the no PMO track but wasn’t ideal…). From that point I fell into a instantaneous depressing flatline that lasted for about a week, and everything has been a-okay since.
Keep powering through, no one ever died from a flatline, as boring, depressing and powerless as they make you feel.

I think I’ve finally done it. I think I’ve finally broken free of the shackles.
After some pretty bad PIED, I’ve successfully had sex multiple times with a condom. A year ago, a girl I brought home said ‘what the fuck bro you’re soft af.’ Fast forward to last weekend, and the girl I brought home said ‘what the fuck you’re huge!!’ Talk about a 180
I’ve had several streaks before, but this ones different. My advice:
-GET SEX OFF YOUR MIND. Nofap means allowing your brain to enjoy other things again. The only time you should be thinking about a girl is WHEN YOU’RE WITH A GIRL. Get off facebook. Get off instagram, tinder, bumble, snapchat. Delete all of it. For at least 30 days.
-With all this free time, force yourself to pick up new hobbies. Trust me, you won’t want to do it. You’ll think its pointless. You’ll give yourself every reason not to read that book, start that project, learn that skill. “its just not me, I’m just not interested in that.” WRONG. You can be interested in anything you choose, and right now your brain is choosing porn! FIX THAT! I promise you, these activities will become fun. A month ago I had to force myself to read every night. Now I can’t wait to get home and pick up where I left off.
– Make a daily routine and stick to it for at least 30 days. Mine was something like this:
-Wake up and take a nice relaxing shower, massaging my scalp and face and body (NOT MY DICK) and feeling alive
– Stretch and foam roll
– Work my ass off at work
– Play chess
Brothers, at first, it will suck. You will feel like it’s hopeless, like there’s no way out. You just have to keep pushing and stick with it. And tell yourself this: almost each day will be better than the last. Sure, you will have the occasional bad day. But it is temporary.
Paradise awaits you my friend. You have to be strong and take the leap. You have to work for it. You stumbled into this hole, and now you must climb out. I know you can do it. And I need you to believe it too.
– Read Mind over Medicine by Lissa Rankin. It will change your world for the infinitely better. Trust me.
Don’t let anyone convince you that the benefits aren’t real. They 100% are. I’m not going to list all of them because I have basically experienced all of the most common ones that everyone claims. The mind-body connection is real. When your mind is in a constant stressed, agitated, depressed state, everything will suck. Porn is an artificial stimulus. It is a drug. It is impossible for you to be an optimal state while sacrificing your life force to this demon.
Free yourself. Love your body, love your mind, love yourself, and you will reap the rewards.
