First of all, hello everyone.

I wanted to tell you guys something that is important, it's about the harms of masturbation and pornography on the brain and body.

Contemporary doctors and psychologists usually say it's healthy...let me just tell you this : they DO NOT know what they are talking about, they simply don't have the perspective of a porn addict. Porn viewing is linked to less grey matter in the brain, check the latest research.

Quitting masturbation and pornography has been the best thing I've done for myself in the last few years. Most people don't realize how harmful it can be.
I personally can't believe how much time I wasted on these things.

Here are some of the benefits of abstaining from both masturbation and porn for a few weeks :
- Feelings of well-being. Being calmer. Easier to laugh, less anger.
- Feeling MORE pleasure from everyday activities, this benefit is amazing. :D
- More creativity. The sense of humor comes back.
- Better memory. Better ability to concentrate.
- More natural confidence, less social anxiety.
- Easier to give up other addictions (smoking, too much caffeine, gaming, thinking about someone of the opposite sex).
- More motivation to do important things.
- Music becomes more pleasurable. In fact, music tastes could even change.
- Less sleep is needed.
- Easier to talk, less stutter.
- Being able to remember dreams.
- Less sexual problems, better erections.
- Feeling emotions more strongly, like love for example.
- Emotionally more resilient.
- The skin will look younger, less acne.
- More physical strength.
- A deeper voice.
- A stronger immune system.

Note : Most people who quit get these benefits, but some need more time to be cured.
Note 2 : Beware the withdrawal symptoms in the first few days (irritability, loss of motivation. crying...)

Here are lots of testimonials of people who quit (imo a MUST-READ) :

Thanks for your honesty.

When one embarks on the slippery slope of ANY addiction then it is only with the help of Allah Subhana Wa Ta'ala that one can cure it.

Ideal remedies include reading the Qur'an and Hadiths, praying, fasting and Dhikr.

Your anecdotal information and experiences are well taken, however it is incorrect to conflate porn and masturbation. Likewise, most healthcare professionals are indeed aware of the harm caused by porn addiction. Masturbation, unlike porn, in my estimation, requires a more practical and nuanced approach. In other words, to the best of your ability, porn should be completely avoided. Masturbation, given individual circumstances, can be problematic, as well as, beneficial in my opinion.
