How To Cure PIED Fast (This Could Actually Work)
“What is the fastest possible way to cure PIED?”
That's a really common question I get asked several times a week, and since there seems to be so much interest in it, I thought I'd write a blog post about it in order to help as many guys as possible.
So on this page you will discover the exact steps to take to ensure the quickest way to cure PIED, plus som additional helpful tips and tricks.
Before we start, however, there is one thing I need to make abundantly clear…
While there are some things you can do to potentially speed up the PIED recovery, you still have to be patient and do a proper PMO reboot. Understand that rebooting is the only real cure for PIED and that beyond that, there are things that may slow it down (that you have to avoid) and that may potentially speed it up a bit (that you can try to implement). But staying away from porn and doing a proper reboot is, and will always be, the cure for PIED.
Why does PIED happen in the first place?
In order to try to cure PIED faster, we need to start with understanding why PIED happens in the first place.
So now some of you may say: “well, it's porn induced PIED so it's caused by fapping to porn, right?”.
Yes, obviously, but we need to know what happens inside the brain.
At the time of writing this article, as far as we know, PIED is caused by two things…
- A desensitized reward system.
- Conditioning of your sexual responses.
You also need to understand that, just spending enough time away from porn while increasing your time spent with real life people will eventually fix your PIED. But what if we want to do everything in our power to help recovery along…is there something we can do to cure PIED faster?
As a matter of fact, there might be a few things that could help.
So let's take a close look at them.
How To Cure PIED Fast
I'll start with all the steps you can try to speed up PIED recovery, but please read the rest of the article and watch the videos as well to get a clear understanding of how and why it could work.
These are the steps to cure PIED fast…
- Commit to never watch another minute of online porn.
- Give up masturbation until you are able to have achieve an erection hard enough for sex.
- Get out of your house as much as possible.
(Really go hard with this one and spend as much time as humanly possible around real life women -or men if you're playing on that team. Talk to and interact with everyone. Go on dates, take dance classes, smile and flirt. Figure out clever ways to be physically close to real life people in a natural way as much as possible, whenever it's natural and appropriate to do so).
- When you do get home, spend time fantasizing about hugging and fooling around with the girls you liked.
(Obviously these are girls that you talked to in real life. NOT people you've seen on the screen).
- Do stuff that will help reverse your desensitization
(More info on how to do this in the article below).
- Avoid other supernormal stimuli and things that numb your reward system.
(This is to ensure fastest possible upregulation of your dopamine receptors. More info in the article below).
- Try things that boosts libido by increasing dopamine, testosterone and blood flow.
(More info in the article below).
Do Stuff That Will Help Reverse Your Desensitization…
As you remember, PIED is caused by a combination of desensitization and sexual conditioning.
Just as long as you stay away from porn and other super stimulating things, like drugs, alcohol and way too much social media and video games. Your desensitization will reverse.
But we can do some things to help it along the way.
For more info on the exact brain changes that happen in a PMO addiction, then take a look at the following two videos I made a while back. Part 1 and Part 2.
If you are in a hurry, I can tell you that the desensitization recovery tips can be found in the second half of part 2.
Brain Changes in PMO Addiction
In part one you learned that the four major brain changes in a PMO addiction is…
- A Malfunctioning stress system
You also learned how the first two brain changes affects us and why you need to be aware of the mechanisms behind them.
In part two you will discover what you can do to help reverse those brain changes. And remember, helping the reversal of desensitization along, might potentially help to cure PIED faster.
In part 2, you will also learn more about the last two brain changes.
I really urge you to watch the whole video as I won't be repeating every detail in written form.
However, I know many of you are anxious and in a hurry, so here are a short summary of things you can do to help reverse desensitization.
- Fasting (intermittent fasting is the most practical way to go about it).
- High intensity interval training.
- Being outside in the sunshine.
- Supplementing with CDP-Choline (a study on animals have shown Choline to help upregulate dopamine D2 receptors. See study on pubmed here).
- Socializing (especially if you manage to climb in “status”).
- Cold showers.
Get Out of Your House As Much As Possible
If you want to cure your PIED fast then you really need to go hard on this one. But obviously, just being out of your house won't cut it.
The key is to be around people!
This phase of rebooting is often called “rewiring”, and it's really is important. Some believe that sexual conditioning is an even bigger factor in PIED than desensitization, and I personally tend to agree with that.
It's no doubt a combination of the two, but conditioning is huge and thus the rewiring phase is so very impoertant.
Figure out ways to be around people – Be creative and smart
The more you can spend time being physically close to people you find attractive the faster you fix PIED. There are probably exceptions to this, but generally speaking that really seems to be the case.
Figure out clever ways you in which you can spend as much time as possible around people your age. In a smart and respectful manner, of course.
- Sign up for dance classes (these are incredible for rewiring).
- Go to clubs and dance.
- Sign up for cooking classes.
- Talk to everyone, including the cashier at the grocery store.
- Go to the gym, talk to everyone.
- Try a yoga class.
- Try to get some dates.
- Go to dinner with someone.
The beauty of dance classes…
I personally took a few dance classes during my own reboot, many years ago, and I found them very helpful for my rewiring.
I'm talking about the good old fashioned dances here, like vals, fox, tango etc.
Just think about it; during the 90 minutes of the class you get to be physically close to many different women. Talking, interacting and there is even touch involved.
In fact all your senses are involved.
And the more senses involved, the easier for your brain to rewire.
Kissing and cuddling vs normal interactions…
Note that every interaction can be beneficial, even if you're just talking, smiling and being present. So it's not like you desperately have to run around trying to fix dates all the time.
That said, being physically intimate, lik cuddling and hugging etc. is probably going to be a bit more beneficial for rewiring than just a normal conversation.
Thinking about real life people may help speed up PIED recovery…
When you are at home, it will then probably also be beneficial to think and fantasize about the people you have met during the day.
However, stay off the masturbation for now, until you rebooted some more. But do go through what happened during the day in your mind. If you went to a dance class, repeat it in your head and perhaps give some of the ladies you interacted with a few warm hugs in your mind…
…all to help teach your brain that the libido is supposed to be used in real life and not on pixels on the screen.
Limit Other Supernormal Stimuli
Okay, back to the reward system and the desensitization part.
If you want to recover from PIED fast, then you also need to avoid doing stupid things.
By stupid things I mean doing other things that are extremely stimulating for your brains reward system. They raise dopamine so much that they can cause a downregulation of your dopamine receptors in your reward system (this is desensitization). Or at the very least they can prevent upregulation from happening quickly.
However, don't get scared of dopamine, just be careful with things that increase it to excessive amounts. Especially during your reboot, because if you keep hammering your brains reward system with super stimulating things the upregualtion of your dopamine D2 receptors might take a lot longer.
These are things like for example.
- Aimlessly browsing on internet for hours .
- Too much social media use.
- Alcohol and other drugs.
- Too much junk food.
- Several hours of videogames a day.
- Endless browsing and surfing on Netflix.
- And of course; internet porn.
Don't develop a dopamine phobia either…
Again, there are many things that release dopamine, and you shouldn't be afraid of it. We need dopamine. Heck, even drinking a glass of water increase dopamine a bit. And so does exercise, listening to music and meditation and those are all healthy and good for recovery.
It is the supernormal stimulus you need to be careful with. So don't develop a dopamine phobia.
Boost Your Testosterone And Your Natural Libido With Exercise And Supplements
Lastly, physical exercise will probably help you recover from PIED quicker.
Granted there are no specific studies made on the PIED recovery timeline with or without physical exercise. But thinking about it logically, how could it not be helpful?
Testosterone and dopamine are the two major players in libido
For example, squats and deadlifts increase testosterone as well as dopamine to healthy levels (and they are the two biggest players in powering libido and erections).
Squats and deadlifts also strengthen and help keep the muscles in your pelvic floor flexible (those muscles play a part in erections).
But PIED is a brain problem, right?
So now some of you may say (“yeah yeah, but PIED is a brain problem, isn't it not?”).
Indeed it is, but intense physical exercise is also good for the brain. In fact studies have shown that it actually helps grow new dopamine receptors and thereby help reverse desensitization. In addition to this it also significantly increase blood flow to the brain.
All of that combined just have to help speed up PIED recovery. On top of that, so many things in the body is bidirectional. Meaning, for examp; if you help your body with things that are involved with libido, the brain may respond, and vice versa.
Try Libido Supplements…
Now, I need to point out that libido supplements will probably not help reverse your PIED any faster, but they can potentially help boost your erections while you are dating and rewiring.
In other words they might help increase your chances for successful sex and thus increase your confidence in the bedroom.
I know, because I used libido supplements myself during my own reboot. I tried everything I could get my hands on, most of them useless, but I found two that worked very well.
I'm not going to go into more detail about AlphaViril in this post as I have already talked about it extensively in other blog posts. For example in the posts, Alphaviril Review and NoFap and Viagra. But let me just say that, even though I was pretty desensitized during my own reboot, it actually worked really well for me.
It was of great help during my rewiring phase.
Before we end the supplement section I once more would like to remind you of the fact that supplements are to be considered helpful tools only and that rebooting and rewiring is and will always be the real cure for PIED.
Fastest Way To Cure PIED
I hope you found this article informative.
The tools and tips I shared may help cure PIED faster, but you should still pursue patience and keep staying away from porn.
As far as how much you can speed up PIED recovery, no one knows. But if you were to do everything on this page, you will most likely see results much quicker than if you were to live an unhealthy lifestyle and be lazy with rewiring and physical exercise etc.
I mean with all those brain healthy things, how could you not?
So be proactive, go hard with socializing and do the things you discovered in the second video on this page (PART2) and you'll be good to go, sooner rather than later.
Best of luck!
