Porn Induced Erectile dysfunction

This is my story.

I am 23 years old now. I have been watching porn and masterbating since I was 12 years old. I have had girlfriend when I was 13 years old and been sexually active all these years. No erection problems at all. I started smoking pot when I was 19 years old and used to still watch porn but it didn't affect me.

I loved the feeling of watching porn when I was high. I used to have sex almost everyday. Even if I didn't have sex, I would masterbate everyday. Sometimes even 2 or 3 times.

Last year my porn addiction increased and I would watch a lot of porn. Almost all the time. I would wake up to porn and masterbate early morning.

I was able to last long on bed and satisfy the girl I would sleep with.

Suddenly One day last year, I was having sex and would ejaculate in a minute or two. The first time is happened I thought it would be okay. But no, everytime I had sex, I would just release within 2 minutes. My girlfriend was upset and disappointed with me. We broke up.

I continued watching porn and masterbating though..

After all this, I didn't have many girls because I couldn't last long.
My resort would be porn , weed and masturbation. I got so addicted to it.

I decided to quit porn thinking I was not able to get  girls anymore as it was getting to my head. Due to that I also quit weed.

I wake up one day to find out that I had no morning erection for the first time in my life.

I was scared, depressed and didn't know what to do. I read about it on the internet and foud out the problem could be Porn.

I had already quit it but to get better I had to leave porn, masturbation and smoking.

I left it all. Its been more than one month now. I was on a flatline.

My erections are now getting slightly better but Not the best.
My sex drive has reduced. I masterbate once in a week.

In this past one week, I have ejaculated twice in my sleep. I still cant last long even while masterbating which means I still have premature ejaculation problem.

Why am I ejaculating in my sleep?? Is this normal? What should I do about it?

How should I cure premature ejaculation problem and erection problems and also increase my sex drive and horniness??

I need a solution. I feel dead and lifeless without a good sex life. My sex life is  dead. It makes me sad when I'm with a girl and I insert It in and release immediately. Its very embarrassing and disappointing.

I think you're experiencing extreme emotional distress which impacts your conscious efforts.  I'm very confident your plumbing is fine, and that it is nothing to do with your hormones.  But your mind, not nearly so fine.

What brought this on?  Perhaps overdoing the porn (yes, that's possible; certainly these days of virtually unlimited quantities and depths satisfying every quirk being at our fingertips, versus merely a few magazines just decades ago).  

I'm unfamiliar with weed's impacts, but speculate that consumption certainly wasn't helping and may have magnified the problem and encouraged it to fluorish.  Abstaining from weed indefinitely (at least, for a few years), is an obvious first step.  If you find you must return to porn, I suggest you see if you can manage with soft porn indefinitely.

How to restore your mental equilibrium is the question at this point.  It might and ought to restore itself simply with time passing (weeks, or possibly months).  What would slow your recovery imo, would be worrying about it -- I predict the more you can just put this in the back of your mind, the easier and faster your return to normal will become.

Well I have been stressing on it because I honestly miss my sex life.
But should quitting porn and weed be affecting my sex drive and premature ejaculation problems?
This has been the first time I've ejaculated in my sleep.

How should this be taken care of? How should I cure premature ejaculation problem??

I think the nocturnal emissions seem most likely due to not having sought sexual release recently (it's likely that simple).

One classic approach to dealing with premature ejaculation is to simply accept it and ignore that it happens, wait for your refractory period to pass (perhaps as much as half an hour?) and retry, at which point this is unlikely to be a problem the second time around.

If you feel your general nervous tension / anxiety has become high over this, as it is not at all good for your mental hygiene to worry excessively, may I message you with a list of links to my posts containing anxiety coping tips?

You will find many tips of quitting or reducing frequency of masturbating . You can stop watching porno, quit weeds. Google abdominal breathing. Practice it 10 minutes twice a day . After learning this you can calm your sexual urge with 6 or 7 breaths. Any emotions can be controlled with this breathing. If you do it seriously, your life will be completely changed.  In this forum and other sexual forums you will find many suggestions of breathing exeercises. Search techniques and practice.
