I find the odd wank very therapeutic, but as soon as I'm finished, the shame and guilt that a person usually feels after doing it are much stronger, and that's alongside the usual feelings a depression sufferer goes through. Mid tug is just about the only time I feel like my old self anymore.

I have a similar problem luke. Except I don't find it therapeutic, I find it extremely unsettling. If you're really feeling so much shame and guilt after doing it it can't be good for your depression. I recommend exercising. It reduces the urge for me, and hopefully for you too. If you can wank and feel better about yourself, without shame and guilt, I say go for it. But don't do it if you just feel worse after.

I masturbate but the euphoric feeling only makes me feel I guess normal for a couple minutes. Then I feel even more depressed because I have just lost my sense of well being so fast that it makes me feel unstable. I don't think I would call it a treatment. It messes me up and makes me feel even more depressed because you know what it feels like to feel better. I guess it could just be me.

Well.... I guess I masturbated a bit too much as a kid. Wink.

All right all joking aside, I use it masochistically too. For me masturbating is a form of self harm. Same page as AlbinoRat.

Although I can see how it would be therapeutic for a lot of people.
lol, and all joking aside how is that harmful? If it's in private I mean. I can imagine if you do it in a public school while lecturing a class of students it might be.

I attend a Christian recovery group called Celebrate Recovery. It's basically a bunch of people with problems led by a bunch of people that have overcome those problems... lol. I recommend it.

It's a completely non-judgemental group that follows the 12 steps but in a Christian format. Plenty of recovering alcohol, drug, sex/porn, and codependent addicts attend.

The whole porn/masterbation thing is very undesirable in my experience. People get so addicted they look at porn at work, then go home and masterbate to porn even staying up all night and then go to work and look at porn again. That's totally out of control. Stress, boredom, etc... are triggers for a lot of people. Even married people get addicted. If this is you friend, you need to get into a recovery group and start finding relief and sobriety from addiction.

If you're single, better to work on abstinence from all porn and sex with masterbation only as needed (careful because it fuels the fire) and start getting out there and meeting people in positive settings (not bars).
