Does masturbation will stop brain recovery ?

    Hey guys! I've been really addicted to porn. Since last years i've tried multiples times to stop watching porn and masturbation but I kept sinking back into it after 1 or 2 weeks.

    So I decided to take another approach. I complety stop to watch any sexual pictures or videos but I masturbate using my imagination when I can't hold the urges anymore.

    Of course, I want to eventually complety stop masturbation. Do you guys think it's a good idea ? Will it slow my brain recovery ? Or should I take another approach. Im currently 14 days in and im really trying to get this addiction of my live.

    Please tell me what you guys think about it. Thank you.

    Thank you for you response! Some people say that fapping might lead you to relapse in porn again but for now im doing fine with some cravings from time to time. Im going to keep this strategy and thank you so much for making me realise all the progress/succes i was accomplishing.

    Whatever works, works. For me it didn't and I don't want to be masturbating anyhow but that's a very personal decision, you shouldn't judge yourself based on what others do. If it's working and you're happy, keep it up. And even if you want to stop MO as well, maybe it's best to slowly reduce it like you're doing so that you don't go back to porn completely and manage the urges with MO.

    Good luck! :)

    Alright, i will slowly reduce it every week but won't really stress about it if i ending doing it more than i should. As long as i don't watch P it's a win for me.
