    I have noticed I am not talking that good the more I am PMOing, and I am having trouble comprehending things. I am 14 years old. Is this normal?

    I just checked and people that went for longer periods of time without PMOing their thoughts got clearer.

    Yes, but it is not permanent damage. I used to have problems with concentration and energy when I was a porn/masturbation addict. I remember It was like having a cold all the time, plus a lot of bad feelings. Now I'm better, but I wasted some years. You are very young, don't make that mistake, those effects become worse over time.

    I fight back to not masturbate to porn, but it ALWAYS finds a way to convince me. Should I dip my head in ice for the desire to go away?

    It is not brain damage. When you PMO your brain changes. You form neural pathways and reinforce habits. It is a huge topic so I cant cover it here but if you are interested in knowing more, check out Ted talks on addiction, look into neuro linguistic programming and check out some of the content on yourbrainonporn.com. Also check out Gary wilsons Ted talk on PMO addiction.

    Try cold showers. It effectively kills urges and you will feel good afterwads.

    I advice you to quit P forever. It might sound harsh but it's not worth the toll P takes on your life. Even if you frequently MO at first while you adjust it's better than PMO.
