You are right Dave it does take a lot of patience and practice :)
i had the same road blocks as you do i am at my 18 months mark now and hoping for some more progress after that ... i can acheive 80% without any meds and close to 95% with meds so i hope from here it is only getting better ....
did you notice a greater change after your 18 moths mark ?
Keep UP the good work lol
It took me about 12 months to achieve something useable with viagra.
It was a very slow progression. For weeks or months at a time I wouldn't see any progression and then I'd get a little change that kept my hopes up.
Viagra reqiures an empty stomach. My best results are when I haven't eaten for several hours.
Good luck. It does take a lot of patience.
