to drop this habit as I thought. The crux of it is the porn, I can go and have gone for over two weeks without masturbating but never gone more than 2 days without watching porn. For now I plan to quit watching porn but continue to masturbate. I think this is a good idea and will ease any withdrawal from watching the porn and once my brain has adapted to not being soo hyper-stimulated by sexual imagery I will begin to reduce my masturbation.
This is the only way that I can think of to re-educate my lower brain. Simply not watching porn and stopping masturbation cold turkey I think is actually harmful to you because it creates a terrible inner conflict that is being fueled by constant environmental factors which can be overwhelming and for me at least very debilitating. Today marks my first day of trying this method, and I may start a blog to document my experiences but I want to give myself a week to see how it goes.
