It's tough to stop masturbating (17)

I don't notice just how much sex is thrown everywhere until I try to ignore it. On TV, in advertisements, the way people dress, on the internet, everywhere. It's as if everything is designed to arouse you.

It's tough to even browse image boards. Seems like every other thread has some erotic picture or text. Why does everyone want me to masturbate? I want peace. I'm tired of my brain being manipulated by arousal. But it seems like to attain that peace, I'd have to give up everything I enjoy. Because everything is constantly shoving sex in my face and saying "Hey, get horny!"

I can't just give up the internet, what else will I do all day? But it seems like the worse offender. Part of my says to give in, just masturbate the day away, it's who I am. But I know that's not true, that's my addicted brain just trying to get another quick fix. Funny how it's so difficult. Not masturbating is literally NOT DOING SOMETHING, which should be easier than DOING SOMETHING.

I like the physical pleasure I get from masturbation, I just wish I could confine it to two or three times a day on the weekends.

I only do it once or twice on workdays. But God, it seems like every saturday I wake up and say to myself "today is the day I start getting serious about programming, today is the day I read a book, today is the day I pursue one of my old hobbies again." And instead I masturbate five or six times.

I don't even use pornography.

God dammit, I'll be 30 soon, this was only supposed to be a problem for teenagers and early 20s. I'm going to completely lose the ability to learn anything or pick up any skills before I lose enough libido to cultivate a hobby. Even a passive hobby like literature.

My tip as someone just shy of 2 months from a year of nofap is to keep yourself distracted. If you see something that is trying to play with your head, go do something that requires your concentration but won't make you want to fap. For me this was reading dry history books or putting up some hours in a flight sim but for you might be something different.

Once you figure out your escape clause, you can use it to get out to some extent and after a while fapping when bored or just out of habit will reduce and while it never really goes away, your drive to actually fap all the time will reduce after about 6-8 weeks. It's as the norms say, you are always a recovering addict. Clean but not cured.

Since making this thread I've masturbated around 10 times.
Every time I finish, I feel disgusting. But a few hours later and I'm already making plans for my next fap.
"You don't REALLY want to stop, do you?"
"No, not really, I can totally just do it once in a while."
But that 'once in a while' ends up being two or three times a day.

Stopped myself from rebuilding my porn collection. Somehow I stopped thinking about what I was doing and was organizing a lot of porn and getting ready for a fap, when a family member came over. I instantly realized what I was doing and deleted it all.

Felt good, like I won a battle, but I know these "battles" are going to happen countless times in the future. How long can one soldier hold out in a world where everything is an enemy in disguise?

I'm up to day 6 myself, but I have the advantage of not being interested at all in 3D (furfag degenerate) so it's not like anything that would tempt me will be seen unless I go looking for it.

Has anyone tried some sort of physical chastity device or perhaps a chemical one?

>Has anyone tried some sort of physical chastity device or perhaps a chemical one?

Physical devices won't work if you've ever had a fetish for it. Like me. I tried them in the past for that purpose, but they never fit. Either they were too loose and just slid off, or they were too tight and made my testicles inflate and get purple.

As for chemical, I don't know, that sounds kinda dangerous. Couldn't that mess with the balance of hormones in your body?

There are certain tea's that lower sex drives. I remember reading about it once. I should probably get one but im kind of afraid since masturbation is one of the only things I enjoy.

As others in this thread have stated. Keep yourself distracted. Also limit the amount of time between when you go to bed and when you go to sleep. I hate it when I'm going to bed and I end up edging for an hour.

I've been trying to quit porn and masturbate less for 9 years straight, holy shit. I just want to get down to once a week, but every time I get the itch (usually before day 3), I go for it, and then feel exhausted and shitty about it. It's crazy

Why would you want to stop? Masturbating is one of the few sources of legitimate pleasure for me. I always count myself as fortunate when I can muster the sexual arousal to complete the act.

>>14
i agree with that. Furthermore the act of abstaining only makes me think about it more rendering the exercise not just pointless but counterproductive.

I felt the same about sugar when an anonymage posted about ill effects of it once and I tried going a month without having any. Sugar, sex, profanities against parents. We are living in Babylon.

Our overlords don't even have a good reason for the nanny police state anymore. Toothpicks must be outlawed to protect the environment. Rope must be banned for safety. Baseball hats must be outlawed because they are ugly. Insurance must be mandatory to protect the insurance industry. Flagpoles must be banned to protect property values.

Why not just put Americans in prison when they're born?
