Hi my name is Nnamebuka a chronic masturbator
I was intoduced to this act during my adulescent by a classmate at the bush while hidding away from our form master due to late coming.
I am in my early thirties and yet to get over this
Have tried various appraoch to no avail. Although I have been clean for a straight 5 months period in 2016 but relapse and gave up. Other attempst to restart had ended in less that a month period ever since.
As one of those new year resolution I started again this years and relapse again April last month. I carried on till 31st of MAY when I saw the thread by VicYo and determined to start again on 1st June but this time on a different approach - Challenge(I love competion), Collective support from fellow victims who wish to quit etc.
Today is my day 3 and wish to do 90 days. Therefore in my count down I have 87 days to acheive my action plan. So help me God

It's very easy to stop this habit. Whenever your hand wants to go down there, Imagine there is a snake waiting to bite you there
|Re: Masturbation Quitting Challenge Thread. by habsydiamond(m): 2:26pm On Jun 03|
KristaPretty:lolzzz... U think it's easy right. U can't understand cos u are not a man.
|Re: Masturbation Quitting Challenge Thread. by aristocratic5(m): 2:29pm On Jun 03|
KristaPretty:Laff wan kill me die
It takes d grace of God nd determination with self discipline to stop it
|Re: Masturbation Quitting Challenge Thread. by Goodlyhrt(m): 5:23pm On Jun 03|
Hi my name is Daniel I want to share with you the grace of God that was made available for me in this matter.
I was not a chronic masturbator per-say but I hated that it made me feel weak and low on energy each time I got down with it.
I was not having a job then (even now) so I was idle and couldnt help it and tried effortlessly to stop it all to no avail.
It was when I renewed my faith in God, I then understood that by strenght shall no man prevail, I started drawing from the grace that is made available for me in Christ Jesus in that when I was yet a sinner Christ died for me on the cross.
When the magnifiecience of this great sacrifice hit home. There was this fear of the person of God that gripped me and till now puts me in check whenever such thoughts crosses my mind and to the glory of God I own not myself but he, which was made clear in the scripture that our bodies is the temple of the holy one, and in his honour we are to keep it holy, free from such that defiles as this in question.
My trick is that I have this burgeoning image of Gods greatness, glory and grace that encompasses all the universe and all that is in it for ever and ever. Amen. Who in his fearsome glory detest such acts and indulgences and wouldnt hesitate to punish his own even though his mercies endureth forever.
Brothers fear this God and worship him, adore his commandments and fall to your knees in praise of his name. Tremble at his feet what so ever that hath breath, and worship the Lord of all.
Holy Holy is his name.

Just have a strong mental state.
I told myself, I will stop masturbation.
I haven't masturbated for almost a week now and I'm someone who does it 3 times a week.
It's all about your mental strength.
If I want, I can go for a month possibly a year
I even started masturbation this year.
|Re: Masturbation Quitting Challenge Thread. by Nnamebuka: 6:40pm On Jun 03|
Thanks for stopping by Daniel. Pls stick around and feel free to offer support to Victims.
I want to believe you've overcome the low feeling (feeling of inadequacy/inferior and dirty)? If so am really happy for you and your testimony would encourage someone here
|Re: Masturbation Quitting Challenge Thread. by Nnamebuka: 6:46pm On Jun 03|
Beautiful one Bloooody!
Strong mental state is what most addicts lack and that's why they're here to get challenged and encouraged to cultivate it by looking at fellow addicts.
BTW I wouldn't really say you're an addict yet since you just started this year. You're well in your way to retrace your step.
Pls stick around and feel free to offer support others.

Masturbation is not bad, just try not to be addicted to it
|Re: Masturbation Quitting Challenge Thread. by MegaPlayBoy: 7:25pm On Jun 03|
As you can see, masturbation is what bedevils most males.
I haven't masturbated for a while now. I was determined to stop you see..
I was going through a friends phone when I stumbled upon some porn..
My impulse was to open it and watch, but my spirit said no. My spirit conquered
The male system is a fertile ground for unhealthy sexual habits. Especially if you're between the age bracket of 15-25.
I didn't masturbate and I had a wet dream lately. So you see, the body needs to ejaculate. But masturbation is an unhealty way of doing so.
|Re: Masturbation Quitting Challenge Thread. by Nnamebuka: 7:21am On Jun 04|
Count down to 86 days out of 90 days Challenge.
To fight an addiction, replace your addiction with a positive addiction. So I started gyming same day I started rebooting. Am loving the feeling!
Today is public holiday and so am off to knock myself off in the gym. Wish me well

Nnamebuka:are u married
|Re: Masturbation Quitting Challenge Thread. by Nobody: 7:44am On Jun 04|
Can't y'all just get a constant girl you can Bleep anytime you wish? Why do I feel like guys who masturbate are too broke to get a girl they bang as they wish?? Cause I don't see any reason why someone should be masturbating when there are girls everywhere. Rada Rada.
|Re: Masturbation Quitting Challenge Thread. by princealexndre(m): 7:47am On Jun 04|
I wish its that easy to stop,I will give it a try, thou I stop sometimes and continue, but its just hard to forget.
|Re: Masturbation Quitting Challenge Thread. by Nnamebuka: 9:25am On Jun 04|
That's why it's called an addiction Sir.
Thanks for stopping by

|Re: Masturbation Quitting Challenge Thread. by damsund: 4:35am On Jun 05|
My name is Damilola, I started masturbating at 2016 but started watching porn way before then. The longest time I've stayed off it is for a month last year (June 2018).
No specific plan however but my fiancee knows about it (I told her) and she is the one following me up. Anytime I feel like watching porn or masturbating, I remember she is going to ask me if I have stop so I don't relapse
I've not masturbated for over 2 weeks now ( I can do it 3 times a day depending on how busy I am).
This June is my birth month and I want to stay off Porn and masturbation throughout this month to give myself a treat
Abstinence (from Porn and masturbation) through out the month of June is my immediate short time goal.

That's ridiculous. Women also masturbate, bro.
As with any addiction or excess fixation, it takes a lot of mental fortitude to stop masturbation. Acquire a goal in life and focus all your energy on it, and you will see that the time you have for masturbation will slowly reduce. In time, you will see that you will stop it completely.
In a way, I can consider myself lucky. I have tried masturbating, but I could not, and still cannot, derive any pleasure because my body knows that those hands are my own; I can't trick my mind.
|Re: Masturbation Quitting Challenge Thread. by ololo12: 5:21am On Jun 05|
5 days and counting. I try to occupy my mind with something else, when the urge rears it’s head. I’ve seen progress already. I’m beginning to go heavy on my weights at the gym, doing longer reps.
|Re: Masturbation Quitting Challenge Thread. by princealexndre(m): 7:07am On Jun 05|
Nnamebuka:yea. Yesterday gone
|Re: Masturbation Quitting Challenge Thread. by KamalMarx: 7:24am On Jun 05|
Hi, I'm Marvellous.
Started masturbating as a teenage.
Wanting to stop all to a no avail.
Plan to do a 60day challenge.
|Re: Masturbation Quitting Challenge Thread. by Nnamebuka: 8:54am On Jun 05|
Beautiful one Dammy!
You can do this and we are rooting for you.
It's important too that you have a set period you intend to be clean cos it helps in being more determined to reach your target.
|Re: Masturbation Quitting Challenge Thread. by Nnamebuka: 8:57am On Jun 05|
Same here on the gym stuff. I pour all my energy and anger on it and it's yielding result
Am rooting for you ololo12. You can!
Always report your progress from time to time here. Cheers!
|Re: Masturbation Quitting Challenge Thread. by Nnamebuka: 9:09am On Jun 05|
Hey Marvellous welcome.
We are rooting for you. Endeavour to put away all triggers and find a new hobby or learn a new skill. Something you can become addicted to in a positive way.
Eg am ripping my body now at the gym and learning french. These ventures are exciting me.
Secondly, I have restrained myself to only visit NL and WhatsApp and the former is on this thread and front page avoiding romance section like plague. No Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and it's working like magic. I still watch television but very selective.
Always report your progress from time to time here. And mention me and other members any time you feel like giving up. We'll be here to give you support.
Next2Bezee here is the reason why you can't bring yourself to masturbate cos you are trying to learn lefty at adulthood. Majority of those addicted started as a harmless, curious and fun plays of immature kids.
