    Hello! I'm a 16 year old male who's been struggling with porn and masturbation since I was 11. Since then, I've learned more about the impacts of porn and masturbation on a person's wellbeing in addition to all of the moral arguments around sexual desire and lust (I strive to be a practicing Catholic).

    Even though I've come to the intellectual denial of porn use and masturbation, I've found that its been hard to put into practice. I've been able to abstain for up to a week, but this whole quarantine has been making it hard.

    Overall, my goal would be to free myself to the current state of "slavery" I have to my passions and desires. Unfortunately, the spirit is will but the flesh is weak, so I think that after months of discernment its time for me to ask for help.

    My goals would be to completely avoid both porn and masturbation (thankfully, I haven't attempted to have sex with anyone).

    Abstaining from porn is one battle. How you transmute your sexual energy is another. If you can get outdoors and get some exercise and sunlight go for it. Try reading and writing as well. Meditation is as well. Cold showers are beneficial as well!!!!

    Please, start studying carefully what's happening in your mind >

    First time without porn will be stressful , but if you resist , in some months you will feel reborn.

    If the first times a person relapse easly, it's okay.
    The streaks becomes even longer , day by day.
    Don't porn anymore, it's better to struggle and at the last to relapse than to look at porn.
    No more instagram pictures of models. No more erotic imagines , erotic stories or erotic asmr.
    If you experience ''flatline'' and low libido , resist.

    An effective weapon to overcome urges and thoughts : mindfulness.
    The brain will try to win you and to get some triggers for the seek of dopamine. Resist
