    Hello,

    I am a male of 21 years of age and I have this habit of masturbation since several years. I masturbate daily one time. I have tried to abstain from it, but can’t go past 4-5 days. Initially, I just want to try abstaining for a week. Can anybody please help?

    You can go past 4-5 days, but you are choosing not to. The next time you feel you need to M ask yourself why. We usually do it because we are avoiding some kind of discomfort or we are using the sensations it brings to get high.

    You can do things to help you like joining the 7 Day Challenge group. I fare better when there's a visual consequence so I downloaded a Habit tracker and keep myself on track this way:

    At the end of the day though it's all you. You can do it, I believe in you. Just keep at it.

    (Note: my screenshot doesn't account for when I first tried NoFap. Those days I too went on for only 4 days)

    I agree sometimes the challenges can help...also, just taking it one day at a time, one moment at a time, one urge at a time, can help a lot.

    You had a habit of masturbating every day. Now you are starting a habit of doing it once every several days. In order to start a new habit of going longer, it’s going to be unfamiliar, you’ll likely have to deal with uncomfortable feelings, and a sense of frustration from denying yourself that easy pleasure. It’s going to be a change. But you can do it. Just take it one urge at a time. If you can, maybe get on this website every day and read and post, even if it’s just a few minutes.

    Also, some people have had success with masturbating from time to time, if they don’t have a partner. I know some people don’t agree with this, and we have to be careful that it doesn’t lead to porn it porn substitutes, but we all have to find out what works for us.

    Anyway, these are just suggestions, take em or leave em. We have to find those tools that work for us, and maybe use some every day, maybe pick others up from time to time, but to do whatever we can to not pick up porn today. Good luck my friend! :)
