    I find that the 2 days after a #:nk is the worst, then after that you dont get the random boners which make you want to do it, so it gets easier the longer you wait, after a certain time. Until you inevitably decide you have to have one
    Thing I've found so far is that my **** seems way more sensitive and that makes me want to jerk it more!

    I have never once masturbated in my life. Masturbating releases powerful energy, this is why it feels good. However you lose a lot of power this way, this is a very, very bad thing. No one should masturbate, it is far too draining in the long term and in ways you cannot see.
    Shut up

    I honestly cannot see the point of this. Life is too bloody short as it is. Why would you deliberately decide to stop doing something that you enjoy doing if it isn't for medical reasons? One day you'll all be dead. Don't waste a single moment of this life preventing yourself from enjoying it, even if that enjoyment is only something as simple as a quick ****.

    Because this enjoyment might be preventing people from other enjoyments.
    Drug addicts enjoy drugs, by your logic they should continue doing it because life is short so do whatever YOLO.
    what Lionheart said, my porn addiction is strongly correlated with my current level of depression and social anxiety.

    There's a huge difference between drug use and skinning the sausage. And making the bald man cry only takes 10 mins (or less if you want), it's hardly high in opportunity cost...
    psychologically there's not, FosB and D2 receptors are activated in both drug use and masturbation (or, for example, gambling, overeating, sex in general etc.) which continues the compulsion to approach the behavioural source of the dopamine (pleasure) high induced by the activity in question, despite potential consequences of use of said behaviour. This is how patterns of addictive behaviour are formed, after a few times it's social conditioning like Pavlov's dogs to skin the sausage even if you need to do some coursework or go to bed instead, just cos you're horny.

    Big differences in terms of consequences, unless you want to somehow argue that masturbation is as harmful as drugs (talking about illegal drugs, not caffeine and the like, obviously). Also, masturbation isn't addicting to the same extent for everyone - some people can go a fair few days without pretty easily.

    ****ing difficult. Absolutely no chance. By day 4 I couldn't sleep as I was trying to **** my mattress.

    Best of luck lads.

    Hey fellow TSRers!

    From tomorrow I'm undertaking a challenge to not masturbate for a whole month! :/ I know it's going to be super tough but really want to find out if I have the will power to do it!

    As it's going to be so tough I wanted to see if anyone else is up for it with me to support through the journey!

    Be brave! Haha.
    No fap seems to have become a little less ambitious. :erm:

    I've always thought that these abstinence challenges lacked any sort of purpose or positive benefit.
