I'm practicing masturbation without porn

At first I thought about spending a lot of time without masturbating, but later I saw that this is something natural, which is not the case with pornography. I was already having some sex every now and then, so I decided to masturbate yesterday, but without the use of videos or any such material. I felt good, because my desire didn’t become uncontrollable, like when I use porn, and so I could control my addiction to masturbation and pornography. So the app counter for me is how many days have I been without watching videos and I intend to continue that way. I no longer feel that crazy need to watch porn or masturbate every few minutes. Is so good.

If you are here for only controlling porn addiction then it’s fine I guess but if you are here for overcoming lust and becoming better person then this is a excuse given by your mind. Every nofapper gets this thought . I also had once. But this is not right way.
Because you could have thought of not using porn ever . You could have promised yourself that you would never fap and even if you fap you would not use porn. so see the tricks your mind is playing with you. Control these urges and win over your mind . Controlling your senses will bring you peace brother. All the best.

I am also thinking same to tell you this is not right way.
If you think you watch [email protected] and don’t Masturbate then also you get dopamine chemical flooded in your brain.
And if you think you can masturbate but not watching porn is ok decision but not totally correct way to deal with the addiction.
We should balance :balance_scale: the level of dopamine chemical…
Excessive dopamine - which we received without doing any hard work and by watching fantasy videos which is unrealistic.
we should get that in limited amount which help us to maintain the motivation towards the work and concentration.

If you stop feeding dopamine to your brain, then your brain automatically started balancing the chemical inside brain. You’ll feel normal.

As per my suggestion you should stop using PMO completely.
First it will be hard but don’t loose hope…we will help you whenever you stumble. Just keep us updated.

As a married man, I’ll tell you one thing: both porn AND masturbation by itself will ruin your ability to have normal, healthy sex with another human being. Additionally, masturbation will always lead back to porn for us addicts. Don’t give into either.

It never affected my sexual relationships. So I’m fine. This is helping me, because it’s lessened the compulsion I was feeling and I’m not in the mood to masturbate again. I feel good emotionally.

It depends on how it’s done. The way I did it served to control my compulsion, because now I don’t feel it like it was strong before. It helped a lot

nothin natural about pretending your hand is a female.
