Are you for serious?

Dude get some discipline in your life. You seem to think that your actions just “happen” to you.

Get a F*ckin’ grip.

And not for nothing, this forum isn’t meant to deal with your masturbation addiction.

Take that shit elsewhere.

Just gotta focus and recompartmentalise.
None of this blurting things out cuz you think its funny stuff.
Put that in a blog, diary, or comedy routine or whatever.
Biz is more "adroit"
You want to put your cleverness forwards not being a goofball obviously

There's these little F*cking horniness demons in my head that are beating the shit out of me. I'm having a hell of a time beating them back and am losing. I'm trying to get a grip by asking people who've possibly been 19 before and had similar (beatable) challenges with their insane sex drive.
How can you defeat those demons if you constantly feed them? Are you a slave to your brain or is the brain a slave to you?

There's plenty of information all around the web about your exact problem. Just google your brain on porn and wuoalah, a gazillion of people that are in the same boat.

Just as the person wrote here earlier, please take this somewhere else. Don't plague the site with stuff that is readily available with the most basic and primitive google search.

Thanks for the pointers, checking out those resources now.

No need to respond guys, thread closed.

It's disappointing to me that there's people who are dismissive of this as a problem. These things can be very addicting, that's why there's entire support groups to help young men get away from porn and masturbation. I would also check Reddit's /r/nofap it's one of the few actually productive and useful things on Reddit.

It's a serious issue, and even though you're only 19 and it could be just hormones, with the ease of access today, it can spiral into something crippling. It's best to take control of it sooner rather than later. When you think something is a problem, it probably is a problem.

Don't delete your posts. It's stealing from the forum and from the time that every one else took to respond and help you. Now any one else who may have had your problem will never know what the problem was.

Checking out that too rn, thanks.
I've done the whole NoFap thing and can say that you will only find success if you improve other areas in your life as well.

Many people who are successful at doing NoFap attribute all of their success to it. What is actually happening is that in order to quit their porn and masturbation addiction they had to start improving a bunch of other areas in their lives.

I'm 21 right now and this only stopped being an issue for me once I was healthy, improved my relationships, and was on my purpose.

I think the right way to view the challenge of NoFap is as an indicator of progress in the rest of your life. The more fulfilled you are and the more action you take - the less you will need to use your addiction as a crutch.

You may find that addiction to social media and the internet in general is playing a very similar role to porn. Addiction to the dopamine hits from all of the novelty is a very real thing.

Our generation desperately needs to find a way to navigate through a technologically infused landscape without becoming numb, impulsive, narcissists - who are constantly on the hunt for instant gratification. The age we live in is a blessing and a curse.

To get as many of the positives from technology without suffering from the negatives, I have a rule that I don't bring my phone or laptop into bed. I don't take my phone out of my pocket while in conversations with other people. I only go on social media if it is related to an event or work.

Slowly I will be able to manage my use of the internet more and more effectively without F*cking up my mind. I wish the same for you.

Who was dismissive?

I called it what it is: masturbation addiction. This isn’t an addiction counseling forum.

Unfortunately, or fortunately for the glass-half-full types, I have a lot of experience with addiction. My own addictions and those of friends and family.

The best way to tackle addiction is with brutal honesty.

Tenderness and victimization does nothing to help the situation.

I could be wrong but I don’t see anywhere that anyone told you to delete your posts.

I was just bringing light to the fact that this is not an appropriate place for this conversation.

I’ve been harsh so far. Don’t mistake that as me not wanting to help you. There are some posts above with resources to help you get started. If you need to talk to someone, make a post somewhere appropriate or PM me.

No one told you to delete that shit. They told you that it was inappropriate. We don't get to erase our mistakes here. Maybe one of the Mod's can replace then move this to landfill.

Most of us posted something we're not proud of, but never deleted posts. Why? Because we respect responses of forum members. Don't be a bitch and stand your ground or go hide under mommy's skirt.

Here's my original post reworded for everyone so goddamned interested in my cock:

I'm 19, distracted from jacking off or F*cking pussy. I want to work on business but they're distracting as hell. My business is doing fine, I don't live with mommy, I'd just want it to do better but the pussy is getting inside my head.
