Hey everyone nice to meet you! Im a 26 year old male who has been under this mental trap for 14 years now. I first masturbated back when i was around the ages 12-13 years in 7th grade. With the wave of new technology that i had at that age allowed me to gain access to pornography through simple google images without anyone ever knowing including parents. Ever since i remember that first time experience, it has become an almost everyday occurrence to masturbate to reach that orgasm. At first it was a strong visual pornography addiction that developed but as time went on, i was able to pleasure myself even without the sight of porn or nudity. Simply laying back and just creating these images in my head of sexual fantasies of people that i knew or who were close to me was good enough for me to get my fix. This is when i realized that my addiction has become far worse then i thought. In the recent few days i have finally decided that this 14 year hell needs to end. I have always wondered to myself why i feel the way i do. I have issues with social anxiety or talking to females in general. Its hard not to pop a random when talking to a female. Whats sad is i don't create these images in my head doing sexual fantasies with them but it just naturally comes up. I have never had a relationship or a partner which could just be the mix to this illiusionary pot. I know this new journey will be the hardest thing i have ever done but im willing to try. Unfortunately i tried to go 2 days without the action but ended up failing today to the overwhelming urge to orgasm. I know this is a battle between Body and Mind. My Mind wishes to end this charade but my body wants to keep having good times. I hope these forums will be a good place to start this journey. Im willing to listen to any pro tips i can get to end this. Thanks for listening!
