masterbating and porn - June 11th 2010, 04:19 AM

Ive jacked off about three times a day for almost three years (is that bad?) to feel good and to ease my depression, but now the depression is so bad that it hardly matters anymore. Ive started to stop giving a crap about whether it is good or bad, so I hardly feel guilty anymore. Now Ive been having weird thoughts while doing it, so I think I should stop. The most Ive gone is one week without doing it and that was on a two week vacation to Colorado. Im damn lucky no one ever found me, I was having wet dreams in the middle of the night IN AN RV. I did it once and just got addicted. Anyone know how to stop?
Also, I started going on porn again after two years of being clean, and the stuff I go on now is a lot weirder (if you know what I mean). I HAVE GOT TO STOP. Anyone?
The reason I want to stop is because it screws me over religiously (Catholic). I might be screwed if I died and talked to God.

Hey there Mitch,

If this is something you really want to stop then the best thing you can do is to find better things to replace it with. Keep yourself busy with things you enjoy. Whether it's sport or video games, just something you like to do that you can use as an alternative. Also, to help stop you looking at porn, you might ask a friend to set the parental locks on your internet and not give you the password to it. That way you can't even be tempted to look because you have no access.

Just an added side note, masturbation is completely normal and in some studies it's even proven to be healthy for you in moderation. I'm Catholic too, so I understand your dilemma. I guess this is a choice that's up to you.

I hope this helps.

You make watching porn sound like something horrible, when you refer to not having watched porn in a while as "staying clean". Masturbation is primitive behaviour and you shouldn't feel ashamed for engaging in that type of behaviour. Three times a day may be above the norm but it isn't necessarily wrong. If you want to masturbate less often, try to preoccupy your mind with other things. Just remember that there isn't anything wrong with masturbation; it's part of human nature.


SUP BRO.

masterbating is totally normal and ok if its in moderation. its just like everything else in life. you can't let it control you. but its not like you have to completley stop and never do it.

Yeah, but how do I do it in moderation and stop acting like an animal? I usually do it three times a day, but sometimes I go four or five. That makes it sore. One time I went six, and my scrotum got all crystally. NOT GOOD, even though I dont know what it means. If anyone can explain that, I'd be happy.

Mich..

Masturbation is completly normal, about 93% of male teenagers have masturbated at least once in there life time. The Pro's of masturbation out weight the cons.

For the pro's, masturbating is proven to reduce cancer, also doing it once a day increases your immune system, by flushing out your toxins. It also help many people to relax and think better when doing it once a day. it also burns a little bit of calories

Some of the few con's are that, the more you do it, the more nerves (down there) you damage, and thus when it comes to the real thing, it wouldnt feel as bad.

However if it becomes a addction it can be hard to stop. But something that i did, is that when i get the urge too, i do something else asap (like dance). Another thing is to put a rubber band on your wrist, everytime you get an urge, pull the band back and let it snap your wrist.

hope this helps
