    Be careful in ramping up the vitamins very slowly if you do start a protocol, because you can easily get into bad shape by going to high too soon. I've done that a number of times and had to back down dosages.

    Thanks, I remember you from my very first reboot! Time flies when you're having fun. It took me a lot of starts and relapses to get this far...I made it 90 days a bunch of times, 5 months, but now I'm cruising into Month 10.

    Guess I finally learned that one PMO is never really one PMO.

    So, I'm about six weeks post O and my erections are definitely back to a good baseline. Going to for O in the next week or two, hopefully my refractory period will improve.

    I only really take a 1 a day B vit', an upto 3 a day vit D and calcium and an omega 3 capsule daily. Oh and sometimes a multi vit' with Iron.

    If you feel good, then that's all the matters. If you're interested in a custom tailored supplement protocol you can take a genetic test for around $200 at 23andme.com. But you may not benefit, however, if you have unexplained fatigue, acne, weight gain, brain fog, mood swings, anxiety and so on then you have may some genetic variants that aren't helping your situation.

    At the end of the day gut health plays a major role in inflammation, neurotransmitters and energy levels. How's your diet?

    Could be better, I was skinny for years but now I've got alot of tummy fat since stopping smoking and hitting my near mid 30s. I have possibly the worst body type; thin bone density so pretty skinny looking but with a technically obese belly! I have muscle too but because of my small bone density I can't pack much on and know I've lost muscle mass through wastage from injury (I.E shoulder bursitis/possible herniated neck vertebrae).
    I would be very interested to take a genes test to tailor my supplements and wonder if there's a UK equivalent!

    Lift weights! I think you can do 23andme.com and have test results delivered to the UK...I think?

    Orgasmed last night. 6 weeks and one day after the last one.

    So far so good...no ill effects! Will monitor and update :)

    Here are my first thoughts post O.

    The after effects have been very mild, and there are a lot of good signs. :)

    The first good sign is I was actually getting hard about an hour to an hour and a half after orgasm just thinking about sex! Secondly my dick doesn't feel dead today, it feels perhaps more 'alive' than yesterday. Yes, there has been a chaser effect, but that's been mild too; my head was on a swivel today, but no crazy urges for sex...zero urges to watch porn.

    Did get a headache today (bad sign), but sleep was fine last night -- zero insomnia.

    Also right after the O I did not feel drained, I actually felt more awake...a few years ago, and for many years I would literally have to pass out after sex/O.

    The next test will be monitoring erection strength over the following few weeks, it feels like they just won't be weaker, but who really knows? One of the keys to how this reboot finishes up is going to be healing up the bladder/pelvic pain I've had for about a year, totally cutting out the caffeine and doing the leaky gut protocol has been working it's magic.

    I definitely feel like there is light at the end of a this long tunnel. I'm not out of the proverbial woods, there will be plenty of improvements in the coming months, but most of the very ill effects of porn addiction are simply gone.

    Just read that apparently 23andme genetic test for health feedback was bannned by the FDA in the US in 2014..

    Hey 40new30!
    After I woke up this morning, I thought about your recent posts concerning dreams: from what I remember, this may be the first time of my life I remember around 4 different dreams in the same night! :)
    During my first reboot last year, I started, after decades, remembering some of my dreams...
    I take it as a good sign, a sign that some good things happen within my brain :D

    Ditto on what Guy had to say. That is a fantastic statement. It gives me hope and encouragement.

    They cannot advertise in certain ways, but you can still take the test, as far as I know.

    Thanks, big guy. I have ever faith in the world that you will do just that!

    If that gives you hope and encouragement, read the next post...because there's more good news to report on. And all of you need to keep in mind that I was the worst of the worst category...if I can get clean then anyone can.

    Mild headaches continued into this morning and have since departed..but that's about it as far as negative O effects! No brain fog, no depression like symptoms, no weak erections, no libido taking a dive, night wood continues and even got stronger...nothing negative of any major consequence has occurred.

    In addition my nasal cycle is just about as it was before the orgasm, switching back and forth in wide swings.

    How's that for non-linear improvements? After the last O 6 weeks ago it was erratic for weeks and erections tanked, after one orgasm...so we can't quite predict things (sometimes there are big leaps in improvements out of nowhere).

    I don't think I'm ready for a 'normal' orgasm frequency (whatever that might be); going to monitor and slowly increase them.

    Why do I believe I'm not ready to just pump out an O any old time? Couple of reasons, one, I'm still have porn flashbacks and dreams at times and two, I still have moderate DE. There's a few miles left to run in this race.

    I am pretty sure that there will always be a few miles for me, until the day my ashes are laid to rest. That being so, it doesn't depress OR sadden me. In fact, what would life BE without challenge? Your greatest skill for my life, 40New30, is by your journey, you lay down the challenge.

    I admire, respect, and (yeah, I know, I'm kinda mushy this morning) love you for that.

    Keep on, Mon!

    Honored to help, my friend!
    I absolutely challenge every PMO addict to believe and battle and finally win.
