    I've successfully made it to Day 60. I'm loving being free from porn.

    I'm just no sure if I should M or not? I didn't do it for a while, but have now started. It hasn't triggered me in any way, but I'm sure if I'm doing myself a disservice.

    Any opinions or experiences are welcomed.

  2. As of my experience, if you abstain from masturbation for a longer timespan you might have some great unexpected experiences and you´ll shurely learn a lot about yourself.
    Try it out for yourself, there´s nothing to loose...

    I've read in No More Mr. Nice Guy that you can do healthy masturbation, which is M without fantasy (or imagery, of course), focusing strictly on the sensations. I think that might be better. Fantasy has a heavy psychological component and you'll just end up yearning your porn again.

    Just my two cents. I don't think I'll masturbate again any time soon. Being horny makes me pursue women and it's actually quite an invigorating feeling.

    The times that I've M'd, it was to real people or thinking about past sexual experiences. No idea if that is damaging in any way. Maybe I'll research more into healthy M. I've always allowed M with sex which has worked thus far.

    Congrats!
    If I have the strength to reach day 60 (44 days from now, lol), I'm for sure not gonna M. I want to reach 90 and beyond and experience what some others are talking about, which is re-wiring your brain away from the illusions of fantasy, which don't need porn to kick in. Reality is out there. The world needs us be in it and not up in our heads.

    100% fair. Maybe I'm overthinking it.
