Define flatline

Please explain what flatlining is for me. It may seem obvious, I just want to be sure. Excuse my ignorance.

Now don't get all technical with me diehard.

Seriously though, flatlining is just in the penis, not an emotional part of it? Just asking. Thanks.

It seems I am currently in the "flatline" stage: no morning wood, no urges, no reaction to anything sexual, just basically being totally asexual.

I have a genuine fear that I will never kick out of it - that is is just me in my natural state - but for the time being I will consider it flatlining and hopefully stick with this until I see an end point.

For some people it's a complete loss of libido and urges. For others it's a sudden and drastic drop in libido and urges.

"The thing to fear is your addiction coming back, which it will, and not being prepared for it.  Practice your new habits (meditating, exercise, interactions with others, time in nature, whatever else works for you) and then you will be partially prepared."

That sounds like some priceless advice. Thanks.

For me, the flatline is physical and mental.

I definitely noticed that my penis is smaller and can't respond to ANYTHING sexual - at the same time, I can't find women attractive nor can I feel an emotional magnetism to them. No attraction, no desire, no magnetism, no want...it's pretty rough!

Colonel, you'll know when you hit it. You won't be wondering "Am I in flatline now?". You will simply know you're in it. No desire for anything sexual what-so-ever.

Well I have been porn free for about 8 days, had 3 O's with my bride over that time, once with penetration. One time got myself off after getting her off orally, then got off with her, the next day she jerked me off, was quite intense but not rock hard, semi. Morning wood coming back. No sign of flatlining yet, seems to be recovering just from no P and no O from only M.

Guys i think that flatline is very different from guy to guy and it can be affected by the girl too, what i mean is that with girl A my dick dont moves at all but with B at the same day my dick say hello to her :P  not a strong salute but at least it moves a bit.

I dont know maybe its like a rollercoaster sometimes you are high sometimes down untill the ride is over and you get balanced..

not in mood for anything sexual

So why do so many of us relapse and PMO during a flatline? Does it mean we weren't really in a flatiline?

Everyone's flatline is different. Yours might just be like that, libido and urges down but not completely dead. Mine's the same sometimes.

Well... I'm in a deep flatline, I get erections only with my girl and I used to relapse only with her. But after I realized that I will never be cured if I keep O'ing with my girl every week, I decided to quit O'ing for sure, at least for 3 months. I get some nocturnal erections and some after I wake up, but they are  usually slugish, other than that... dead, small, cold to the touch dick. Anyhow, we are young, and if we keep it together and follow the process strictly we'll get better faster. Cheerio.

I'm confused. I'm on day 26 and I have libido but I don't have any erections. Only erections I have occure when random thoughts about my fetish come to my mind, which are happening like once or twice a day but I've been able to succsessfully reject because I want to rewire to real women. So, I'm not sure if I'm doing this right... I haven't PMOed for almost a month...

You're doing it right ;D don't worry. You need more time, that's the deal with us early rebooters. I'm in the same situation since I had sex the other day (before that was really dead) now I'm starting to feel alive again, just stay of PMO and stop masturbation too. Patience is the key.

I'm as horny as can be. My wife is very attractive to me, I want sex with her WAY more than she wants. Though I can seldom get a raging hard on, it does respond.

I can't imagine going months without an orgams. My mind dwells on sex and starts to fantizise without an orgasms for a day or 2.

No porn for quite a while, have not relapsed into that. Have no M'd on my own, but have with my wife.

I enjoyed fantasizing about stuff I never had done, never would do, so trying to keep my sexual expereicne based in my personal relationship and real life reality, not fantasy or imagery. Don't think I am in flatline because I am very easily aroused even if it is without an erection.

This is Colonel's last post on this forum.  I think he relapsed and we lost him.

I made this silly post above he replied to which I have since deleted.  I think it is why he was posting here.
