I'm a sixteen year old male and trying to stop masturbating. My girlfriend and I discussed guy stuff including masturbation and I just think I could be a better person if I stop. I told her i'd stop and I stopped for a few weeks and started back up again ( because I found out my masturbating didn't bug her. It was the magazines I used as a visual aid). So I started up again. I still feel like I should stop so I promised myself I wouldn't do it again last night before I fell asleep. Then, when I got home, I broke my promise so I feel guilty. What happens is I'll think, "Okay i'm done." But then i'll get home from school and I have the ure to do so. So I think, "Eh screw what I said earlier." and masturbate. What can I do to break this habit if I can't even promise myself I'll stop?View Thread
