I'm pretty new to this website but after reading what other people have written on these forums I thought I'd share my experiences and see if any of you could relate to them.
some background info-
Male -23yrs old- single - have masturbated everyday since the age of 13 - frequency 1/2/3 times a day
About July this year I decided to kick the ol habit of masturbation. Having read many sources (mostly online stuff i'd found) about the harmful effects excessive masturbation can have on your body and how I related to a fair few of them, i.e lethargy, moodiness, depression, it motivated me to stop completely. COLD TURKEY.
The benefits were pretty amazing to say the least, My attitude to life has completely changed, I am more upbeat, happy with myself, alot more happy around others, more sociable, more energy/vitality and more motivated to do things (did my first ever 10k run the other week never thought i'd have the energy to do anything like that!),
I noticed some physical changes as well, I can seem to grow facial hair a hell of alot quicker then before, my skin looks more healthy and what was also unusual is that the hair on my head has gotten alot thicker?!?!?! has anyone else had this? I also had my first wet dream (have had 4 altogether within 3 months) since quitting masturbation.
HOWEVER, since quitting masturbation i have almost doubled my porn viewing time and this has become a real bitch in my life to get rid of, for some reason i'm finding this much harder to give up then masturbation and i need advice, recommendations on how i can stop this. I tell myself i have got a problem but then the next day will tell myself its not a big deal to look at porn, I just dont feel like there will be any siginificant benefits of giving up porn but i know i'm completely wrong.
Any advice would be great
