Hey guys, first post here.
I masturbated to porn about 3 times daily in 2008 and 2009, then that lowered to about once a day in 2010. All of this was to porn, and I realised after a failed sexual encounter that my libido had completely gone. I can achieve full erections with manual stimulation so i'm pretty sure that's not the problem, but I'm desperate for my libido to return.
After initially recognizing the problem I cut down to a couple of times weekly but having discovered this site decided to completely quit 25 days ago and haven't relapsed. When I first cut down over about 6 months I noticed slight improvements but still nowhere near where I want to be, I'm serious about quitting this time and I refuse to let this addiction destroy my life any further, so if quitting really will help, I won't relapse. I've noticed a slight improvement so far but I'm yearning for some more substantial results - I feel as if my life has no purpose.
How long does it usually take before a full recovery of libido? Has anyone experienced this?
What exactly is 'edging'?
Just how much do sexual fantasies slow the recovery process?
Any answers would be much appreciated, thanks guys!
