The first and best thing for you to is get off the fast food, look for healthy options, put sex and your dick on the back burner for a while why you get back in to some kind of a good daily life style, its the stress thats giving you a bad time sex wise, you have the right answer, but keep away from viagra, and as you say take one day at a time, and once you get things working the way you wont them to go, then find the right women and then get back to sex, then let the little head lead the way to a happy life.
Good Luck

One of the most common causes for new onset ED issues is stress and anxiety as well as fatigue, guilt - you name it- if it involves your brain, then your penis often doesn't work as well. Think of it as if a toggle switch controls the brain and penis, so only one works at a time. Your situation is so so common. The good news is, from my own personal and professional experience, all will work out great. You just have to get past the "crap" phase of this process. Suggest you read a lot, let the past be past, and know your future will be fun and enjoyable...and your erections will be just fine....if you get to that point and they are not, then come back...but I bet all will be good.
