Age 20 - Porn induced ED, but not addicted to porn: 2 months to cure.

erotic mastery I just finished freshman year of college. I came in with a really hot girlfriend.  Sex was terrible and I ended up breaking up with her on her birthday lol because I thought it was her fault. My erections were rare, and 60% at best. I felt terrible about this, but sexual compatibility is very important and it was not right to continue a broken relationship.  I slept with a few other girls and realized that the problem was not external (with girls or their vaginas) but with me.

Perspectives From 18 Months of Freedom

turkey dinnerAccording to my counter I have now passed the 18 month mark since either masturbating or using pornography. As I write my emotions are a mixture of joy and solemnity. I am very happy to be free and don't ever want to go back. The solemn emotions are the result of realizing how much time was wasted on this habit.

Age 24 - Greater energy, focus, confidence, compassion, balls; Less anxiety, depression

ED cured - I feel like a teenager. I'm much more active and having an amazing sex life

90 daysGoal was 90 days and I feel great about making it. I started seeing significant benefits a while ago and now I feel like a teenager. I'm much more active and having an amazing sex life - no more PIED and lasting a long time

Age 26 - ED: I am confident now, I am sure of myself. No longer controlled by addiction.

Age 35 - extreme feishes, DE & ED, lack of intimacy

Happy guyHow crazy is that! 35 years old, had lots of sex over the years but never any intimacy and never a steady girlfriend due to:

  • no confidence to speak to the girls I wanted
  • unrealistic expectations
