    is it any healthy to masturbate without watching porn? or does any good or is lost time? Sexual relief has to be done once a while? Or reboot means NoFap at all?

    I think its a natural function. But using porn isn't

    without porn it's normal and nothing bad. But I wouldn't recommend it to porn addicts. Speaking from experiance it is a slippery slope to masturbating with porn. In the past I used to lie to myself that I can just masturbate without porn, but ended up watching porn soon after everytime. I strongly advice against it...

    It all depends on what your mind is focussed on when fapping - if you're still thinking about P imagery specifically then it's not that much different than using P itself. However if your mind can focus on fantasy, or real interaction then I think for most of us (providing you don't over-indulge) that this healthy.

    For me I need that release but you have to be careful it doesn't lead to the same urges for P ;-)

    Good luck bro
     
  5. no no no no no no no! I don't watch porn, but I do M. And it still ruined my life, so once again, no! It has the same dopamine effect, so you won't take a step forward. The only way is to quit everything.

    I think you are right. Every time I M then I get somehow depressed. I think when I fail to avoid M at least to make a quick seasion rather than M for half an hour or more edging myself. I have noticed that long M sessions provides me to some euphoria which is not normal and is addicted since it just feels good. After this I get seriously depressed. The mind connects this good feeling with something that is not real sex etc. So every time I feel sad or lonely I can escape through M. But is better to read a book than M I guess. Needs a lot of effort for me to stay away from M and get some euphoria from other things I could do alone. It’s difficult but I am trying to avoid M and build healthier habits. When I M I get addicted to that and then for example every morning I touch myself like edging but is not good for making brain feel refreshed I guess. I have totally quit porn for months. That was easy. But M is difficult.

    Also when I used to watch P I was looking to find a girl having sex or whatever. It had to be a girl that I could somehow fall in love like was my girlfriend and then I was M on that. Now that I don’t use to do that I feel strange cause I am finally trying to find this girl in real life and is depressed that I can’t find easily a face that I like and fall in love. With P was easy to see her. It’s so funny how my brain got fucked up with P habit. It’s P side effect that now I am somehow depressed that I don’t have a girl I am in love in real life. Was so easy to see a video with a girl of my taste. Not that easy to see her infront of my eyes and talk to her in real life.

    The number of times this gets asked per day is hilarious

    We all have the same bs pop into our heads. Its just a rationalization to continue getting dopamine, don't do it. Sure its not as bad but its still bad.

    It was easy because of M. So many of us end up doing that and end up in the "This is so impossibly hard now" category because we lied to ourselves for months. It fucking sucks.
