How to Stop Masturbating: 10 Proven Methods

1. Keep Busy

If you are wanking because you just don’t know what to do – it’s time to find some new hobbies!

Try some activities that you are curious about and stick with the ones you truly enjoy. In this way, you will be able to replace idleness with something far more interesting than a “why not” wank.

There are many things out there to do, some free, some not, you could give a try to: writing, learning an instrument (YouTube is your friend…), painting, drawing, soccer, basketball, tennis, martial arts, weight lifting, running or maybe, a new skill?

2. Improve your Lifestyle

If you exercise regularly and your diet is on point, you will have incorporated in your lifestyle a good amount of discipline. Discipline is key to resist when “the need” arises.

So, step by step, implement small changes to improve your discipline and create a healthier routine.

For example:

  • Start Meal Prepping – by preparing your meals on Sunday, you can free yourself from the hassle of cooking for the rest of the week and it will prevent you from succumbing to a take away when you are too tired. You can find easy (and cheap) recipes online exclusively for meal prep (you can twist them easily). Also, make sure to make a list before shopping and stick to it!
  • Find YOUR Exercise/Sport – by finding what you truly enjoy doing, to keep you fit, it won’t feel like torture on a regular basis. Take your time to try different activities and stick with the one that brings a little (or big) extra something! Additionally, push yourself progressively but just a little. Be consistent instead of going hard at it.

3. Limit Loneliness

If you are masturbating often because you feel lonely, know that there are ways to limit loneliness.

For instance, you could join a video-game, board game, coding, sport or manual activity club to stop masturbating.

Also, when your friends invite you to do something, go for it. Even if you would rather stay at home. By going out more often, you are bound to meet new people.

Moreover, you could try online dating. Nearly all of us have done it at some point and more often than not, you will meet, at least, one interesting person!

Be daring!

4. Stop Porn (Definitively)

When it comes to recreational masturbation, porn is the MAIN enemy. It’s hard to resit the temptation when your fantasies are just a few clicks away. Therefore, the only solution is the most radical one, if your porn makes you automatically go down on it…you will have to STOP. To help you stop masturbating, you will have to stop porn. Really!

Should you need some help, read this article. It will help you understand the dangers of porn and give you TOOLS to stop.

5. Become your Own Boss

What do I mean? Well, if you don’t get enough tough love, you will have to give it to yourself.

I am talking about is discipline, again. For example, one thing that helps a lot of people, is to start the day writing a to do list. Write the most important things first. Then, start by doing all the small tasks and focus on the bigger ones after that. Also, make sure to cross everything, that’s THE ultimate satisfaction. It will give you a better sense of accomplishment.

When you are twiddling with your thumbs, look at your to do list!

6. Allow Yourself Regular Rewards

Blackmailing sucks. Period. However, blackmailing yourself can be useful. It can allow you to improve and stay on the straight and narrow.

For instance, gift yourself a nice meal or a video game after a solid two weeks without any wanking. You deserve it!

However, avoid gifting yourself something that has any sort of sexual connotation or by…masturbating yourself. That would be quite counter-intuitive and ineffective long term. Moreover, it could make your addiction to wanking worse!

7. Ask for Help

If you have tried everything or nearly, be open to an external opinion. Put shame aside and think about your future. Asking for help is a brave act and most people will see it as such – whether you are asking it from a religious person or a medical professional.

In addition, don’t hesitate to ask for a second opinion, religious representatives and medical professionals are not all-knowing or all-wise. Like us, they can make mistakes, they are human. Especially, if the advice given doesn’t sound right for you.

8. Try Fasting

Eating seems to be an essential part of being alive – right? As important as breathing or drinking.

However, our bodies can survive for several WEEKS without food. I wouldn’t recommend a fast longer than a week without medical supervision.

Instead, you could try intermittent fasting – or IF. With IF you can eat for a certain window of time and “fast” for the rest. For example, you can eat for 8 hours between noon and 8pm, and fast until noon the following day. You can have a shorter period of time and you can adjust the window to match your own preferences. (1)

Fasting is great to distract you from sexual desires and it will allow you to reflect on the nature of your desire in order to eventually, learn to control it.

9. Rationalize WHY you want to STOP

When you stop masturbating, you will:

  • Keep more of your little swimmers when needed (aka be more fertile). (2)
  • Avoid the increased risk of premature ejaculation during intercourse or worse, impotence.
  • Be able to lend your laptop or smartphone without clearing your history squeaky clean.
  • Enrich yourself by doing hobbies that you actually enjoy!
  • Have more proportionate arms (in theory)!
  • Gain a lot of time that you can use however you see fit (not to masturbate obviously).
