DAY 1:

First of all I've smoked my last cigarette. Smoking cessation is my first goal.

I realize that all my efforts will be useless if I don't quit smoking.

Also I found a name for my syndrome: STASI, like the secret police from East Germany

Stress Tobacco Alcohol Sleep (lack of) Ignorance.

Yes, I was ignorant all these years doing so much damage to my body.  I don't listen to my body that was crying for help and care. I was ignorant believing that I'm like Iron Man. And now I pay for that. My present days are now full of my past errors.

I've started a low fat diet and I want to move, as much as I can, to a NO FAT diet.
Also, no sugar, excepting honey in small quantities for my oatmeal.

Exercises - at the beginning, 30 min daily walk.
Every day - 1 vegg juice (celery, cabbage, carrot, ginger) + 1 fresh Pom juice.

No supplements for 1 month, I will try what Hippocrates said: Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food.

Also I want to start PMR, every morning on awakening.

I consciously that doing all these things for my Little Guy I will improve my overall health, preventing new damages in the future. So, the general goal is to improve MY LIFE, keeping this in my mind as the first and most important rule.

I thought I would provide a little bit of background about what happened to me:

I'd started to have erection problem from the begining of this year. I took some stimulants (Tian Li, a herbal potion) and it worked. Nocturnal tumesccence and morning wood was ok and before that.
All worked fine until May this year. The potion did not worked anymore. I was to several urologists and did some acupuncture. The situation was a little bit better and in June, I've started to take L-arginine, Pycnogenol and Horny Goat weed.  This Worked fine for 2 weeks and then came the disaster.

One night, I had sex with my wife. After ejaculation the penis went to flaccid state very quickly, like a balloon which rapidly loose air. Since then, no morning wood and in flacid state the penis is very soft, like a jelly. Now I feel like the penis is disconected from my body and brain. I can very hard achieve an erection but I can't maintain it. Tried with Viagra and Levitra, worked ok, but I don't want that pills to make part from my life. The situation is getting worse from week to week. Also, totally loss of libido.

DAY 3:

I had two horrible days at work, so bad news: I smoked again. I know that I'm hurting myself again and again. The good news are that I'm more relaxed and... bingo. I could obtain some erections without any pills.

Conclusion: if I'm in a good mood and telling myself that there is a hope, all things are getting better. I have just a few days until my birthday is coming. A good moment to quit smoking forever!

Did you visit your urologist and expalin your situation to him?  He will examine you, test your blood, and may be able to help.  for me, the issue was lower testosterone.  Blood flow to the penis was totally normal.  Since on T therapy things ahve been great!  Again, you should have yourself thoroughly checked out by a qualified doctor.

DAY 7 (More details):

I was to 3 different urologists:

The first opinion was that all is in my head and I did some acupuncture.

Second opinion that the nerves are damaged and I must to do some expensive
therapy on a electromagnetic chair.

Third opinion, after a short ecography, that I have a sort of hardened penile artery. Also I was to a good cardiologist and he believe that I'm ok with the arteries. I'm running in circles and I don't know what to believe...

Of course, the only prescription from all these doctors was Viagra or Levitra. Nothing about diet
or natural supplements. I'm still believing that I can repair something in a natural way...

Blood tests:
My LDL cholesterol was 199, now dropped to 168. HDL was 40, dropped to
38.
Tryglicerides 98, now 88.

Six months ago (May this year) I checked my T levels.
Testosterone - 5,00 ng/ml (17,36 nmol/l)
LDH - 190 U/l
FSH - 5,2 U/l
Prolactin - 3,5 ng/ml (73,1 mU/l)

So, what is wrong with me? Clogged or hardened arteries? T-levels? Cholesterol?
All of them?

DAY 15:

First of all I'm on the good way with smoking cessation.
Day by day I'm more conscious that smoking is a BIG problem
for my health and, of course, for my Little guy.
I've tried the cold turkey method but it doesn't work for me.
So, I'm reducing the number of cigarettes as much as I can.
And, in the last days, smoking is not anymore a "big pleasure".

Yesterday I was to the gym. One full hour of effort is priceless.
I'm feeling more confident that this is the good way to solve
my erection problems. And, surprising, another effect is that
it diminish the need to smoke and I'm feeling a little bit more horny.
It is obvious that a better blood flow make all these possible.
So I'm working on that!

I read elsewhere on the forum that the doctor is the expert. But you have received 3 different answers from each of the urologists you visited, which suggests to me that certain types of male sexual dysfunction are as much a mystery to the medical profession as they are to the layman.

FWIW, when I quit smoking (for the final time) years ago, I looked at a single cigarette as a lifetime of cigarettes.  I would have been fine to pick up one cigarette but I brought myself to recognize that they are like Pringles.  You can't have just one.  Picking up one cigarette is picking up hundreds or thousands.  This helped me thru the times that I was tempted to have "just one".
