Checking in. These last couple of mornings when I'm waking up I've problems with wanting to masturbate, almost falling in by nearly encouraging stimulation. The old demon of 'does it still work?' popping up. I need to recognise this problem and kick it to the curb. I surprised that my testicles don't feel that different - in the past when I abstained from masturbation I think they did. Maybe it's because I'm older now. I am more or less flatlining as expected and this in some ways make abstinence easier. Final thought, I've got to get quicker at letting sexual thoughts pass when I see random women on the street.
