It started early; and it started without me realizing it.
I had a friend, who in hindsight, was the worst influence on me. I regret ever being his friend as nothing good came out that relationship. The Devil made himself known to me, and I did not know it. This is the worst because you cannot resist him.
This addiction became a way of life for me, as self pleasuring was impossible not to do at some point.
I wanted it to stop. I did not want to be slave to the feelings of the physical world.
Although years have passed and I still continue to practice self stimulation (although with more temperance than ever), I know that it is partly not my fault as a life changing experience occurred in the early stages of my life.
