I tried to stop since December 31 but have failed at it at least 3 times.
Well, in this case.. You can but you will suffer with some wet nights. It's natural to your body create sperms and use it.
>read on a book talking about priest problems.
People can permanently stop masturbating. Whether YOU can is something only you and your decisions can answer. Since you've failed 3 times I highly doubt that it's possible for you, but it is still far from impossible.
Stop watching porn.
It depends on how bad you have it.
If you must fap do not watch porn. Once you break the habit of porn and pleasure stopping is easier.

It's OK to relapse, at least now you consciously see it as an addiction. You probably need to fill your time with something besides the computer. Like if you get bored and just resort to fapping; anytime you're bored just goto Walmart and walk around. Or draw something, or chat with someone you normally don't on steam/Facebook/whatever
i think 3 times during this much time for someone who used to do it everyday its pretty great?
ye thats exactly what it is. i get bored and lonely, i could be asleep but i stay up and it just sort of happens. in the times i did relapse only once i was horny so...
i try to fill my time with shows but sometimes there's nothing to watch and that's when it usually happens
>i think 3 times during this much time for someone who used to do it everyday its pretty great?
Yes, but that's not stopping permanently, now is it?
For the record, I see no problem with masturbating. Even every day. Not fapping is just a placebo for beta spergs.
