What Was The Strongest Addiction You've Ever Have? And How Did You Overcome? by iamleumas: 7:15am On Jan 05, 2018
Earlier this morning, I came across a thread "My Brother Is Addicted To Weed And Now Tutolin, HELP!" and that reminded me of how I battled with masturbation for over 5 years.

.............................................
So, what was my own addiction?
Masturbation

HOW DID IT START?
It all started in 2012 like play like play when I came across an article about masturbation & I indulged in the dreadful act for over 4 years (A minimum of 5 times in a week).
I'm just too addictive to the extend that on a particular day, I had the urge to do it & I don't have any cream or lubricant at home to stimulate my d*ck, guess what? I started spitting saliva on the thing & I began to rub it upandan! embarassed
And many other experiences like that...

WHAT WERE IT'S EFFECTS ON ME THEN?
I can vividly tell you that excess masturbation have a lot of side effects in which I witnessed then:
- I always feel drained & guilty after doing it
- It affected my thinking, I couldn't think straight like an adult!
- Whenever I see a lady, sexual thoughts will just come upon me & I'll start imagining what the girl would have underneath! sad
- It turned me to an introvert (I hate being among people & don't like communicating with others)
- I easily forget things.
- It corrupted my mind
- I can't really focus on any other thing unless I satisfy the urge for masturbation
- It affected my spiritual life, and lots more.

HOW DID I STOP MASTURBATION TOTALLY?
Mehn! Stopping masturbation is the most difficult thing I've ever undergone in my life. Because the more I try to stop, the intense the urge for it. I can still remember very well on a particular day, I decided to go on 3 days fasting and prayer.
Day 1: I didn't masturbate cool
Day 2: I didn't masturbate cool
Day 3: Lo and behold, I broke the fast with masturbation! shocked sad cry

In fact, I cannot count the number if threads I've opened on nairaland and other forums in search for how to overcome masturbation addiction.

Also, at times I read many articles on how to overcome masturbation but yet, none of it seems to be working for me.
It was that time I lost all hope about quitting it.

So, how did I finally overcome masturbation?

After a series of failed attempts to stop masturbation, I finally got a working solution! cheesy cool
On February 19, 2017, [/b]I made a [b]strong vow to myself never to indulge in the act again and i ruminated so much on many things on that day, such as:
How did I start masturbating?
What are the things that always lead me into masturbation?
When do I masturbate most?,
etc

After getting answers to the above,
I decided to take some measures and it has been helping me since February 19, 2017.

These measures are:
- If I must come online, I don't stay long on social networks like before
- I rarely sub on my Android phone to avoid visiting xvid......
- I chose to be browsing in the public rather than in private
- Anytime I notice a lady wearing provocative dress, I tried not to look at her
- I took time to do other stuffs that'll keep me busy like visiting a friend, watching football, reading books, etc.
- I avoided staying too long in the bathroom
- I got rid of oily creams in my domain
- I avoid anything that can make me have sexual thoughts
- I avoided staying alone
- I avoided watching/viewing romantic movies/images, and many other things.
.............................................

Please share with us how you also overcome yours so that other people can learn from it...

So, what's your own strongest addiction and how did You overcome it?

I was so addicted to soft drinks. I could not spend a day without drinking. I later realised i was doing more harm than good to myself. I just had to stop it.

I remember when I first joined social media network especially nairaland, I usually take comments personal that time because I was so emotional, so the addiction goes thus, anyone that insults me, that person is marked already, I track the IP address of that person and the location and the rest is history, that's why I always advice people to switch off their location.

am matured now, no bleeps giving again.
