I was addicted to opiates for about 5 years, and during that time i had erection problems. Now i have been clean for almost 2 months and i still have a hard time getting erect and keeping it up. Does anyone know when i should be back to normal?
Opiates totally messed with all my functions. I had a hard time getting erect during use and it was worse for a couple months after getting clean. Then I couldn't get enough, and would get an erection when the wind blew. Problem was, I had no control over ejaculation for another month. My poor wife. I've been off subs for 106 days now, and I've felt like all systems are a go, since I hit about 90 days. It's frustrating, but sex is better than it has been in years. Being present, in control of mind and body, and having feelings in tact all at the same time, I don't remember the last time I had that experience. It's a major bonus of getting clean though. I'm 10 years older than you, so maybe you'll bounce back faster, but I'll tell you what, you'll be able to make up for lost time real soon. For 5 years your brain preferred pills, focus on feelings of love and affection, your body will respond to allow you to express those feelings physically. I think exercise helps a lot too. Getting your blood flowing and boosting brain chemicals helps with all the physical symptoms of opiate addiction. I know it's hard, but be patient. That wasn't a pun. 2 months, you should be doing better soon.
My brother in law who is addicted to heroin had the same problem. And Im kinda emabarrased to say this but women have the same problem with our orgasms. Now that Im almost two months clean I have them within like literally 2 or 3 minutes lol. No joke but seriously it should get better with time. Best of luck to you!
