    Not yet for me.
    But will be starting for tomorrow.
    I learn through research that it can give all sorts of peace for the mind and even reduce intrusive thoughts.
    Just wondering if it also helps people to control their urges to not masturbate.
    Also some tips would be great for starters like me,
    E.g. how long should i meditate per day?

    Download meditation app first to get used to meditation.. then go for a retreat with noble silence... It will be difficult. Worth a try. Consistent practice is the key. That is, 1% theory, 99%practice..

    Yeah, I meditate all the time. I also burn incense and it helps quiet my state of mind. Meditation makes my spiritual heart pulsate. You can feel the effect in only a few minutes. For me, it only takes 10 mins to get into a meditative state, but for you it may be different. I urge you to not give up if you fail at it. It's a practice that has been performed for thousands of years, so it has a proven track record of success.

    I used Simple Habit and Calm. When I got a streak going, I felt great.

    Although not on a daily basis, I do meditate. The best part is whenever I meditate, I feel pretty optimistic. In fact, it rejuvenates my mind and keeps me calm in situations demanding stress and anxiety. I’d suggest meditating with soothing music on. You can surf YouTube, you’ll get plenty.

    Smoothing music is good at first to create a habit. but drop it sometime after few months of practice. and concentrate on object of meditation. breath or tip of nose or chanting or sensations in body like that, learn about that.

  9. I have been practising meditation for almost a year, and while I'm not doing it everyday, my goal is to make it part of my daily life. Even 5-10 a day can do wonders. Meditation has helped me with a lot of things. It has helped me work through old psychological issues, which has also helped me deal with some of the roots of my PMO addiction. It's a holistic practice that works on many levels. I suggest you check out mindful.org for a wealth of information and resources concerning meditation.

    Relaxing music helps to attain a deeper state of relaxation. It's very helpful if we lay and listen to it using a headphone. I used to use relaxation music for dream practice. It feels light and almost paralysed my body,
    But regarding meditation practice, it becomes a distraction from that point. Somehow I need to listen to relaxation music to reach that state., So, I stopped it.
    It's better to use a natural object of meditation like breath, or aware of thoughts something like that.

    I meditate everyday ( started 2.5/3 years ago, through suffering of course ).

    I recommend a good app, like calm.
    Start slow..10 mins per day is great, if you can, do it everyday..when you start getting the hang of it, bump the time up to 20..when you get used to it, it becomes a tool for your life, so you can actually decide on the spot when to use it, how much time, etc. ( not that you can't decide now, but it becomes more versatille. It's good to have a specific time of the day just for meditation, at least on the beginning ).
    Good luck! Any questions feel free to ask

    Edit - Ps: if you have the time, try these books -> The Power of Now and The Four Agreements. Will help you understand what the mind does and deepen your practice.
