    I'm a 14 year old boy and I want to stop masturbating, I rarely do it (1 time a week ish or sometimes up to 3 times) but when I do I feel terrible and I heard about all the benefits to not masturbation. So if any of you fapstronauts have any pointers for me then it'll be really appreciated.
    Thank You

    First, welcome man. It's a good thing that you're here. There's a lot of different opinions on the site, but for what it's worth I'd suggest that the best reason for giving up masturbation is that you're removing it's ability to screw you up later. The nature of the thing is that it tends to escalate and get addictive, so while you might not be all broken now I promise you (as a 40+yo porn addict with a wife and kids) that it is not a road you want to go down. I did. Lots of guys here did, and it's destroying lives. You'll be saving yourself so much grief to just walk away from it now.

    Look, I don't want to scare you, it sounds like you are doing all the right stuff and coming here and everything, but you need to take this stuff seriously.

    It's a really supportive community here, and we'll all try and help. Bless you man.

    @ComplexRiddle Thanks for replying. It's good to be here but since you've been masturbating for a longer time than I have, can you tell me some pros and cons of long time masturbation?

    Read the Success Stories forum. You'll learn about how bad things can get plus the positives of quitting.
    Well done for making a start!

    Mainly what @SirErnest says. My issue with it is that it starts changing how your brain reacts to different stimuli - so less the effect it has on your penis (though there are effects) and more the effect it can have on your mind. It tends to distort your pleasure response to sex, which means that you're more likely to end up with erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, or simply not be interested in sex with someone you love. There's more extreme stuff as well, because if you get sucked into the porn trap, your mental map of what is normal gets really twisted. So you judge yourself and others by what you see on the screen. There's a really good post here https://www.nofap.com/forum/index.php?threads/the-first-time.223131/
