Yeah, I've found that to be quite true.
I'm on day 4 by the way.
As someone who has cleared my acne from not masturbating, everyday you do without is a good day, and two weeks is great, keep up the good work. Masturbation believe it or not was my problem and did create my acne, I am not sure what the medical science was behind it, maybe me losing minerals and the chemical stresses that go with it, IDK. Once you get into a no arousal state your mind doesn't even think about that sort of thing anymore, it becomes easier and easier to go on without it. At first though it is tough, its like a smoker tyring to quit cold turkey, they get cranky. Also to note, my attitude and general outlook on life was much more positive, I became more friendly and was never negative. When I did masturbate I was also in different moods, but now it seems like my mood, stress levels (pretty much none) are all stable. I had also changed from washing my face with soaps to not using them, my two main problems were masturbation/orgasm/larousal, and topical soaps and creams, once I stopped both I was clear in no time (and that was coming from severe acne). It may or may not be your answer, but you should gain more out of it if your skin doesn't. Good luck, I usually go 2 weeks between orgasms or sometimes even 1 month. My longest was around 3 months believe it or not, and even without wet dreams, as I say once you stop looking at porn you just dont get the mind urges anymore.
