    I don't consider myself a PMO adict, but I know that if I continue with my routine I will be. I jerck off everyday. Some days even 2 or 3 times but is not usual. I am trying to reduce masturbating to a healty rate because i realice my body is use to It. Many nigths (i mostly masturbate at nigth) i fap not because i was horny but because my body was asking me for. I also realice that I like porn to much, I got to the point where the porn was more satisfactory that the masturbating part.

    For this reasons I have decided to stop PMO for a wile (6 days now). First to get rid of the habit and second to see what happens, like a small experiment. The thing is that i dont wanna quit masturbating for life but I want to do It in a healty way, not by routine. Any advise?

    First off, good on you for starting the journey! Mad respect! As far as any advice goes, I would remove ALL aspects of pornography from your life. If you want to truly go all in on the "experiment," then you have to remove all artificial stimuli. The next thing that I would do it to keep a journal of your progress or maybe even just mentally note how things are going in order to not get discouraged. Also, (as you probably already know) stopping porn is one of the most difficult things that a man can do, especially when you are biologically craving it. Some helpful tips to stopping are to take cold showers and to do push-ups whenever you are feeling the urge. It might seem extreme, but what this accomplishes is that it forces the body to be uncomfortable. If you have any more questions or wish to look for accountability, this website is a great place to do so.

    Thanks. Quit P wasn´t actually that hard, for now, because I did it in a really progresive way. When I realice that P was consuming a lot of my time I stop watching porn and change it for IG models and then, a couple of months later, i decide to quit all kinds of porn. So for now (8 days) I havent had much problem with it. But man... when I think about the videos i have saved on my PornHub acount... man those videos were amazing. Perfect girl, perfect angle... And i have to admit that I am gonna miss them. I am gonna miss something as personal as those videos.

    PS: I have notice that your counter is at 0 days. Everything ok?

  4. Most people here are addicted to porn. It's extremely difficult not to watch it even when we don't want to. So don't be surprised there will be a lot of people with 0-1-2 days etc. In addition, the counter doesn't mean much because everybody has their own goals. For example my counter shows 70+ days no PMO but I did not masturbate in the last 110 days. And I'll reset it back to 0 this weekend because I will have sex (although not watch porn or masturbate).

    You said you used to watch porn and had an account on Pornhub. When exactly did you stop watching porn? Because if you stopped 8 days ago, it might be too soon to call quitting porn a done thing. You might actually be addicted to it. 8 days is nothing. I hope you're not addicted though.

    What do you call "healthy masturbation"? How do you define?

    For me personally I bought a Japanese sex toy (vagina replica) and it's going to be my last resort in case I really want to masturbate. I don't want to use my hand ever again.

    I quit porn (complete porn videos) a couple months ago also because It start to get boring to me. Usually is at this point were people start to develop more problems because they start to look at weird things. Not me (so far). And any sexual content 8 days ago. When I say quit i dont mean quit like for ever, i mean i just decide to stop watchig. It may be a traslation error. I know 8 days is nothing. I mostly stop PMO to get rid of the habit.

    I used the Word healty because I really didnt know what Word to use. I mean masturbate with out It becoming a problem. When I am horny or need to relax. Not daily.

  6. Ok I gotcha. Well congratulations for quitting porn (addict or not). This industry is no good. Looks like you got out of it before escalating. Good for you.

    Well man only you can know what healthy is for you. Try once a week maybe. Or once every two weeks.

    Okay complete honesty bro, no. I had a pretty bad relapse over the course of the past few days and I am not in a good mental space just because of some other life stuff going on. I'm not proud, but I'm trying to "fail forward" if that makes sense.

    Dont be too hard with yourself. Relapse is something normal, especially if you are having external problems not related with PMO. Learn about this experience. Ask yourself why did you relapse and what were you thinking on that moment. Focus on your goals and why you stop PMO. Lurk on this forum probably would help next time. Any ways, sorry for be a bit on "experience guy mode", you probably have more experience on this than me, just triying to help a bit.

    Healthy masturbation is fapping without porn and fantasy and being conscious of what you're doing. It works and is not addictive because it gets you out of the trance porn puts you in.

    You can just set the counter to no P and M?

    There is no such thing as healthy masturbation. Jerking off is the worst as it is a homosexual act.
     
  12. Yea I can. I don't yet know what I'll do. Probably I will set it on no PM.

    You shoud read the posts again if you dont get them the first time. I said solo women and i said humping a fleshlight should be done just for a while to rewire the bad habit of jerking off.

    Again, if you lack reading comprehension better refrain from posting.
