>>25559919 It is an addiction and you need to treat it.
Compulsive masturbation ruins my life too. Now when I have taken steps to get rid of my compulsive addiction to watch pornography and masturbate, it is much better.
First step would be deleting all porn. And promising to yourself to never visit porn sites anymore.
Then you need to fill the time spent masturbating with activities. Reading books, working out, creative hobby.
Educate yourself on the dangers of masturbation, how it fucks up your brain and the dopamine reward system.
Remember, it will take time. When you go on nofap, you will break the streaks numerous times. What is important is to never give up. It will take time, months probably. First few months before you instill some discipline in yourself. And then few months to do actual healing, like healing erectile disfunction.
Even if you give in to temptation and masturbate, you must not stray away from the goal of curing your addiction. And it is important to know that you will never be safe from addiction, because if you allow it, it can always creep back on you. What you can do is the choice to not indulge in your addiction.
tl;dr: your problem is an addiction and you need to treat it as such
>>25560666 >dangers of masturbation The only dangers of masturbation are that some people are so retarded they start believing it ruins their lives and instead fixing actual problems they decide to join reddit cults full of teens.
>>25560666 What about the health dangers of not masturbating? Semen literally starts rotting in your ballsack if you don't throw it out at some point, it's why your body makes you have wet dreams if you don't jack off. Not masturbating greatly increases your chance of dick/balls/prostate cancer.
Also it makes me crazy with hormones, when i go out i can't do anything but stare at women like a retard. No fap is a death sentence for men that don't have girlfriends, it will fuck you up worse than masturbation.
>>25561037 3 months approximately with the clear intention of stopping masturbation and porn entirely. 9 months before that I had a stupid idea that I can moderate it, which resulted in worse addiction. Worst part is when I can feel the boredom, and how only pictures of women can give me some kicks, and everything seems bleak.
I have been constantly fighting against the bleakness. But when on nofap, the fight is much easier.
My last streak of 14 days ended 2 days ago, when I was lonely, stressed and depressed, and I just ejaculated holding my limp dick in my hand, feeling like shit. I need to deal with my emotions with other means than numbing myself with porn and masturbation.
>>25561072 The effects it has on my brain are noticeable and I need to work on myself. The cult is just a crutch to make the recovery faster.
>>25561088 The semen is composed of sperm, and the seminal fluid. Both are produced constantly and can be reabsorbed. Maybe you need to control yourself.
I also have problems with staring at women, and then I remind myself that porn taught me to be a voyeur, instead of interacting with women, because it is clear that women prefer interaction than to be stared at.
But I am afraid of women and to interact with them, so I need to work on that as well.
To clarify, masturbation itself is not bad when done in moderation. When it goes together with porn use, it literally destroys your libido.
>>25562211 As a man who has a girl he can have sex with whenever he wants, I actually prefer masturbation. Sex is very cumbersome, it takes so much time, preparation and effort. Plus, you're immediately disinterested completely once you cum.
Now, this gal is just a sex friend, but I understand how sex can greatly enhance a relationship. In the context of a relationship, sex is way more appealing to me.
Like previous anons have said, I could just have sex with this lady frequently, but its so much fucking work. I have to attend to her needs, and even if I didn't it takes longer/I have to work her up. But if I do nothing, my mind turns into a fucking animal and just cares about sex.
Its annoying and cumbersome, frankly. I'd rather just fap. Are you telling me that instead I would be better off just wasting my time fucking this gal? It seems like the same thing to me. One is just harder but slightly more rewarding depending on my mood.
>>25562211 >Maybe you need to control yourself. LOL. Not him but you are obviously super low test if it doesn't distract you.
I tried nofap, longest I got to was 8 days. First few days was easy as hell, then my libido seemed to be completely gone. However, on the 8th day all I could think about was sex and constantly had a boner. I was unironically considering rape so I decide to just fap it away.
>>25563100 I guess I am low test, therefor masturbating to porn harms me. It does not do anything to you apparently, so you are free to do what you want.
I mean when I was beginning, all I could think about was just ways to get off. Ways to find sex.
But even men with high testosterone can control themselves and not give in to instant gratification.
So it is not a matter of hormones, it is indeed a matter of self control. If I were conditioning myself with porn every day, giving in to constant orgasms, feeding the lust, of course I would have problems with self control.
Conceding to hormones is what weaklings do. You have a brain and if you want to stop being dependent on masturbation to porn, you can take steps but it will take time. But it is possible to teach yourself self control, the decision however is up to you.
>>25563402 Yeah fapping is fine, but for erectile dysfunction treatment, it is better to not fap, because if I were to fap without porn, I would conjure pornographic imagery in my mind, or anything when a woman shows her body instead of imagining me interacting with a woman.
I do nofap because I want faster addiction recovery.
