    I have been addict for 10 years. Fapping 5 times every day to porn everyday for 10 years.
    I was extreme addict of pmo.
    I suffered pied and lost the love of my life.

    So I decided to do nofap, I got all the benefits .
    - clear vision, no brain fog, good memory, libido {very short period} etc.

    But I have been mostly in flatline for last 18 months. I don't know how long it's going to last but I can feel my libido through the roof in that brief period of 3_4 days every month. I feel like a man.

    Other than that, I feel like a dead fish with no motivation and full of lethargy.

    Just keep on going, some day in the future this will all be worth it! I'm so impressed by the fact that you have come this far, and you are a great inspiration for all of us.
    I have the same problem as you man. I have been PMO heavily (multiple times a day) for ten years and i suffer from PIED (i'm 23).
    Have you tried getting physical with any women lately? If yes, how did you feel the couple of days afterwards?
    I too have gotten a lot of the benefits that many of fapstronauts claim they've gotten, but my dick is completely dead. Since i started my journey my dick feels dead (limp), no signs of life in the morning nor throughout the day. Did you have the same problem as me?

    The topic creator's symptoms scare me for being that long of a time.

    The whole 1st year was horrible for me.
    Heart palpitation anxiety, panic attacks, and flatline.
    After 1 year, the physical withdrawals are over but I'm still in flatline.

    I get fine for 3 or 4 days per month where I feel like a horny teen but then again after 3 days I'm back to flatline.
    It's a zig zag curve.
    26 days in a month - I'm in flatline.
    4 days in a month - I'm a horny dog with all the libido in the world.

    I was heavily addicted maybe the worst case of pmo addict.
    Maybe you're not that addicted and you can recover quickly.

    Did you ever have any problems getting an erection with a girl whilst you were pmo and having PIED? what about now since you have gone so long, are erections easier to get now with women, I had a bad experience and I don't ever want to go through that again.

    I lost my gf to some other guy because I wasn't getting physical with her. I never had any libido.

    Then, I couldn't get an erection with a prostitute. Then I realised something is fucked up with me. I searched Google and I came across nofap.
    I started my journey,,

    Now 1 year after nofap, I got involved with a woman and now I can get an erection easily.
    I was making out with her in my car and I had a hard rock erection.
    But still I don't feel libido.

    Like I can have erection if I'm forced with a woman but I don't feel horny.
    I'm just lazy with no motivation to do anything .
    And I'm like this for last 1. 5 years, I don't know what to do.

    I admit, this thread scares me, but it's very interesting.

    Why some report a life change after 6 month and some are still in withdrawals after almost two years?
    Maybe it's the exposure time, maybe it's other things, maybe the physical conditions, i don't know, but it would be nice to have a discussion and find out...

    Yes I do have Morning wood, strong morning wood.
    But no libido, it's like a dead wooden piece hanging out of my body.

    It might be interesting to you but I feel like shit. Although I do know there are cases of flatline of 2 years.

    I totally understand you, i've been addicted for more than 20 years, starting very early, so i'm a good candidate for 2 year flatline...

    I had a good period between day 115 and 135\140. Ringht now and the rest has been quite shitty...

    I guess it's because we are differents. But we should see what habits we have or not. I mean, I think NoFap is a new lifestyle, you wont get better if you are in your 1 year free PMO but you are still smoking and drinking alcohol every day. Anyway, It depends about our addiction to PMO too.

    I don't drink or smoke. I exercise everyday.
    But I think I was an extreme addict doing pmo 5 times everyday for 10 years.
    So I know I will take a lot of time.

    I watched the firs porn magazines at 10, then i got internet at 13, and high speed internet at 14\15. I'm 33 now.

    I'm not married nor i have a partner, porn and family issues has always make it almost impossible for me. Actually i never had PIED, i've been only with escorts but i always could perform quite well. Only this year i find myself having weak erection.

    I probably come to know about porn problems 2 years ago, i saw one of the ted video, but i didn't really delve into that or either thought that i really have a problem with pornography, i just abstained for two week for fun and nothing more.
    I really come into nofap in may of this year with probably the same video, but this time i delve deeper, read about stories of succesful fapstronauts, and find myself having all the problems induced by porn and excessive masturbation (besides PIED).

    I don't really know if i'm in a flatline, for sure i don't crave porn nor masturbation ( but i still crave escorts...), but after 20+ years of porn right now i don't really know where i'm at, i'm kinda confused.
    I had terrible withdrawal symptoms phases, the worst being from day 95 to 115. Then it has been quite good physically and mentally. Just last week i started being really depressed again, almost suicidal thoughts, not like the last phase, but this time the symptoms are only psychological, i feel physically very strong, but anger is becoming a problem sometimes, yesterday i questioned with a driver who honk me while crossing the street, and i started screaming and offending him, hoping he came out of the car to physically confront him...i think that i should just stay at home in those days...

    The thing that makes me go on is that my back pain, which i had for 15 years or more, is surely getting a lot better, my physical equilibrium is getting slowly but steadily better, i think i'm stronger, and my legs are getting stronger, my skin is slowly getting better (but nothing incredible). So this things give me the proof that something is changing and the power to go on with this.
