    Iam 20. I started at 14, too bad I know. I tried alot the the past 2 year to stop it. But I couldn't. I can hold it for only 3 days. But I return to it so bad, even worse than before. The main problem it affects my life as a student. I can't study and I waste alot of time. My health is decrement. I became thin than before abd I get tired when I do little work. HELP!!
  2. This is like asking "how do I do NoFap?" because one could give a bunch of different answers and suggestions to your situation. We are all in this together and we all have felt lost at some point but maybe looking at new resources, you know, learning new methods and trying new things will help you adapt and overcome.

    Since I don't know what you've been up to, what you've tried etc I can't tell you anything at all, that's how useless your message here is right now.

    Either way, I'll share some piece of advice that helped me on my path. Check out the recoveredman's podcast, specially episodes 127 and 128 where he talks about raising awareness, setting up a plan, accountability etc:

    Furthermore, there's to help you unterstand what you are dealing with.

    I don't know what else to tell you at this point to be honest. We need more information.

    For me personally it starts with beliefs, not just spiritual but beliefs and intentions about the behavior itself - and these beliefs need to harden into convictions. You need to tell yourself and others what these convictions are in order to be consistent within yourself.

    For instance, do you believe that you can be completely free and have complete self-control? Do you believe you have to have sexual release when desire is intense?

    Me personally, I have an unconditional conviction that I do not need, nor want pornography, masturbation or orgasm at all. I intentionally do not want it for many reasons. Sexual fulfillment and orgasm are to be experienced in the marital covenant, not outside. That's the end of the discussion for me - you have to take the door and slam it on this vice. If you leave one small opening it will come back.

    If you examine yourself you will find your belief system has all sorts of cracks in it that allows this behavior. You must believe that you can be permanently free, and you have to desire it. Build a wall of faith against the sin.
