Hello there. My story I am 26 and I’ve been watching porn constantly since the age of 12-13 years old. At first it was just regular porn then fast forward to today with the hundreds of scenes every day movies, kinky stuff etc I watched about everything. I spent most of the time looking for porn and just some minutes actually masturbating to it. Watching tens of videos before deciding which is the “perfect video” to finish myself to but then of course I would watch tens more. Tons of fetish, rough sex, etc you know the drill. Through the years my erections became less and less hard. I used the death-grip naturally like most people who watch porn. I came to the point that sometimes I wanted to masturbate but my penis would just not respond. I remember there were some days when my penis would feel sore after marathon sessions when I was saying to myself enough is enough but like a true addict it was NEVER enough. I masturbated every single day and I rarely missed one. Some days it included more than one time maybe three or four. I have not had real relationship for a long time and I do (or used to I guess) visit hookers very often. An important point is that have never felt anything too good being inside of a woman since the sensitivity of my penis is almost completely gone. I have had bad experiences with me going soft inside of a woman and another time that I could just not get it up completely even with oral sex. That was perhaps the most embarrassing moment of my life. One time I had an erection but I felt nothing at all I pretended to enjoy it but after a while I thought to myself well this is pathetic and told the girl I can’t do it and I just stopped. ED Diagnosed About 5 months ago things became so bad and I felt like such less of a man that I visited a doctor to talk about my ED problems. I took a test by answering some questions and scored really high. He then injected my penis with some sort of liquid and did something like an ultrasound. He said the blood vessels that supply blood to my penis were letting out more blood than they were letting in so my penis can't get hard easily and when it does it's very likely that the erection will not be sufficient or be lost quickly. I don’t know how to translate it in English but there is a name for what I have. The treatment that he gave me was that I have to inject my penis with something that he is giving me every three days. What this does is give you a full erection for 4-5 hours in order to improve. I have been doing this since April and I have to do it for about a year or more total. Injecting is not as bad as it sounds or like it sounded at the beginning. He said the cure for this kind of thing is about 80% and since I am young my chances are better. I asked him what if it doesn’t work. He said be optimistic but the only other thing left if this doesn’t work is surgery using an internal penile pump. :-\ I just wanted to say that I was absolutely petrified of seeing a doctor and mentioning my problem but I was very happy that I did at the end. The hardest part was when he called his cute assistant to bring him the papers for the ED questioners. Trust me if you’ve never felt this emasculated before it’s not a good feeling. (Not as bad as having a lifeless penis when a beautiful girl is giving you oral). I tried having sex using this injections and I STILL could not get myself to finish. I have to say for the first time In my life I felt great having sex with a 100% erection. However the sensitivity was still missing from my penis and I had to finish myself off by masturbating. Notice that during this whole thing I was constantly watching porn. I never gave up on it. NOFAP and REBOOT challenge A couple of weeks ago I found this great website. I identified with almost every single problem being mentioned here. I thought to myself hey maybe I should have found this before visiting the doctor but hey he still found something wrong with me so it was worth it I guess. For the first time in my life I have not seen porn or have masturbated in almost two weeks. Come to think about it it’s kind of crazy. No it is actually insane. Here’s what has happened during the first two weeks. The first 5 days I really wanted to watch porn but it was only in my mind I could feel it since I was not horny at all so I stayed out of it easily. Day 5-8 the desire got stronger. I had installed parental control apps on my computer but I still saw some pornographic pictures using google images as I was testing K9 to see if google images are completely blocked. Not a lot maybe a 5 or so. Nothing more than that. Then after day 8 to today I feel like no desire towards sex or porn at all and I feel my penis is completely abandoned me. Here are the good news so far. - For the first time in months (maybe years) I have had some really strong morning wood. One day it was like I was 15 again I felt like a real man it was amazing. - I feel like I’m getting the sensitivity of my penis back. When I touch it down there I feel like it’s not part of my body. It’s like It’s renewing itself like an organism. - I also feel the testosterone inside of me. I am going to sign up to a gym and let some sweat there. - I feel like I want to go out a lot. - Suddenly there is so much more free time in my life. - I’ve started noticing how pretty everyday girls are even the ones that I would not consider cute before. - It's only day 12! The hard parts. - I still have to do the injections and it’s a very tough job to forget about sex completely when you have a penis rock hard for 4-5 hours. So far I’ve managed to do it. - It’s very tough staying completely away from things that could stimulate you. I visit sports sites, forums, blogs etc and pictures of hot girls (often in bikinis and topless) are EVERYWHERE. It’s absolutely impossible to block these all of it. Also I live in a country were sex scenes and naked, sexy women are on tv and magazines are everywhere and anytime. I try to avoid it but again it’s impossible. - Every time I go to bed I try not to think about sex and women but what I end up thinking is exactly that. The good thing is that I’m thinking about real women that I had sex with or hypothetical scenarios with real girls (fantasizing I am involved in whatever is happening). I DO NOT think about porn AT ALL though and I don't think I miss it. I think I’ve convinced myself that if I think about women that are on the internet I’m just getting aroused by a bunch of 0s and 1s and think of how pathetic that makes me. - I’m really scared that if this doesn’t work then that might be for me. I’m damaged goods. Some questions My question to you is this. I am on day 12. Do all these things that I mentioned in the hard part count as staying away from PMO? I have not even touched my penis (only to pee and shower) but I have seen a couple of pornographic pictures when I was tempted to use google images. I see a lot of hot girls on sports and forums and I try to ignore it but sometimes my eye gets there. And when a sex scene with a topless girl is on tv I might notice and might get semi aroused. Or what about If I start fantasizing about having sex with a girl that I saw and get an erection? Should I reset every time I do any of this things. This is NOTHING compared to what I’ve used to watch my whole life but trying to stay away from absolutely any flesh and sexual thought would be nearly impossible P.S.: I feel this is one of the biggest things in my life. I felt like a lesser man for some years now and if this goes well I’m gonna have a new start to life. This makes me so motivated to pursuit this with everything I have. Thanks everyone.
