HiCustomer

If this happens to some one at your age it is most probably is psycologic and there is no organic basis to it. So everything can go back to the way it was . It is a matter of time.It is a trmporary problem. In the mean time stay away from alcohol and smoking.

HiCustomer

People who can get this kind of problem which has organic but not psycologic causes are much older than you and usually they have hardening of the arteries which brings blood to genital organs or diabetes causing damage to the nerves which helps and maintains an erection. So you don't have all this as far as i know from your history. I think you have this problem possibly because of stress or anxiety or anger or poor communication with your partner. Caffeine doesn't help either.So try decrease the amount of caffeine you are taking. Caffeine found in coffee,teas,cola and chocolate. Take a one multivitamin tablet like CENTRUM once a day.
If you don't get better after correcting all the causes that i mentioned above i would advise you to see a physician to rule out thyroid disorder,hormonal problems etc. by having a blood test.
