Quit masturbation, how to do?

Recommended Posts

:image:I FEEL SO DISAPPOINTED with myself. 

As I mentioned before, I was away from school for 2 months now. And worse, alone in a rental, no one to talk to. I thought loneliness helps my study, which I always expected in school. However, once I was really lonely as well as I am now, I felt nothing to do and seized by fears of everything.  Subconsciously, I found a porn on Xvideo last night and masturbated ------this scenario happens all the time from my teenage. Once I feel lonely or anxious, I masturbate. 

How to live a life without masturbation or without the sense of guilt after masturbating? It never makes me well  even at the moment of doing it. I wanna quit masturbation.

This is one aspect of the forum I don't get, I love porn and a good wank every night. It's the one thing my body gives me for free. Although, I would say that there are certain Xvideos I've stopped visiting because they make me feel a bit seedy, but generally I see masturbation as the bodies natural way of relaxing itself. I can't go to sleep without doing it, it's like an anti depressant and a sleeping pill all in one. I think it's more important to give up the content that makes us feel bad rather than the act itself, but each to their own, we all deal with things differently. I just tend not to give myself a hard time over it (no pun). It's a human function that is there for a reason, but like anything it can become entangled with feeling of self worth, kind of like food and booze/drugs. Moderation had always been key for me. I have certain toys that I use when I have the house to myself, but why not? I've had all sorts of stuff, I just see it as a bit of fun. If I kill 100 people on a game it doesn't make me a killer, so why would I let porn define me permanently when it's just a bit of fun in the moment? To be fair, my tastes are quite tame. I like BBW BBC pawg stuff, so it's not exactly fringe porn, but I also enjoy a bit of gay stuff if the mood takes me, again, why not? No guilt, just good old masturbation. I know some guys are compulsive and go out looking for the real thing, but that isn't my bag. I hope you find some peace with it and quit if you feel guided to, but guilt is so useless, absolutely pointless.

When I was younger, I always felt guilty for masturbating. During my teenage years it was a never ending cycle of masturbation and self loathing mixed with guilt.

As I got a little older (early 20's) the guilt subsided some but I would still go through episodes where when I watched something that I considered edgy (it was gay porn for me at that time) that it would make me feel horrible about myself.

Now, I find myself masturbating much less than when I was younger (2-3x/day as a teen, 1-2x/day in my early 20's, 5x/week in my late 20's, and now I'm down to around 2x/week unless I'm traveling or alone). I also don't feel the same level of guilt as I did when I was younger.

If masturbation is bothering you then you need to determine what about it makes you feel bad and try to address that piece. I think, as you get older, you will feel less guilty about doing it.

Then what's your masturbation for then?  I usually masturbate for difficulty of falling in sleep. Once I did it, I felt better and slipped into dreams soon.

I have to admit that you were energetic in your younger years. I commit it usually 2-3 x/week. Never less but more.

The guilt stems from the rumor that goodness of our body away with semen, which causes ugliness and distraction. I blame masturbation for my oily face and weak body.

I hope I could be in your phase one day and I know I would get there. 

Today I bought a couple of bunnies to help ease my loneliness and see if I can quit.

When I was young it was always about sexual release/satisfaction. The guilt likely came from the frequency coupled with the fact that I grew up believing it was wrong...a "sin". I firmly believe that I was addicted to masturbation/sex. My sex drive was off the charts through my mid 20's.

I honestly use to blame masturbation for my small penis. I assumed God was punishing me for not only what went through my mind but the act of masturbating itself.
