I used to have that mentality..."Everyone does it...so it's okay".
I WISH I HAD known better back when I had good skin, I'm sure I would have got some girlfriends lol.
Its amazing the "I dont care" feel you get once you go for a while without Masturbating. Back then...If i saw a great looking gal, I would look away if they caught me looking thinking..."ohh...i dont want her to know that I find her attractive"....now I stare them without really caring....if they catch me all i think is "thats right....I wanna do you" lol. That said, I do not view them as a sexual object (altho I admit this sounds like a contradiction)
They only reason I'm "thankful" about acne, is that it got me to learn about this stuff, and proper eating.
The connection of diet to your overall state of health is really there..... this is only obvious once you get old......In the young years people just abuse it without knowing,,,,but they are slowly accumulating damage IMO.
Going back to P&M, We all grew up on the porn era, so It feels normal. But it isnt. All the advantages (aka "super powers") that you get once you quit this stuff, its actually the natural state. The way we were meant to be.
Regardless of acne, im gonna continue to live this way.
Im not saying I will never masturbate again. Thats ridiculous. But certainly not even close to the extent and frequency that I once did.
And once I get a girl, definitely not. Why waste my sexual energy like that. Just stupid lol !
