I am quite confused, but as for not masturbating just fill your day with other things so you don't have the time to think about it. When people get bored things tend to happen

There's nothing wrong with masturbating unless it's interfering with the rest of your life.

If you're talking about quitting masturbating... that isn't too far off of quitting breathing. Almost every human does that now and then.

Do you feel like you're doing it too much? Or do you feel guilty about doing it? If you can talk more about the underlying reasons why you want to stop, it will be easier to help identify what the real issue is.

I guess it depends on personal perspective... but since when is masturbating a "bad habit"?

Unless it's causing obstruction to your daily life, like you're late to work because you wanted to jack off first, or are actually doing it at work or school or w/e, then yeah it's a problem. Otherwise, just DO IT!

Is the issue jacking off? Jacking off to porn? Or is the issue jacking off to gay porn?

Masturbation isn't a bad habit, although it depends how often you do it, and if it interferes with other aspects of your life, and if you prefer that to a partner. But, honestly if it's bothering you that much, then you'll just need to keep yourself occupied. Hobby, Sports, Drawing, Painting, Hanging out with Friends..etc. etc.

I don't know if masturbation is kind of a new experience for you or not, because it might be little weird if you're not quite comfortable with it all yet. Seriously though, it's not bad. In fact it can help overall in your sex life, you discover a bit of what gets you off, where you like to be touched. Explore and Enjoy ^_^

Everyone masturbates!
For the most part..
I assume? :P

If it's because you feel guilty after you do it, well.. most guys do. That's just life. That's how our brains work.
But if its because it's becoming an addiction or something then you just need to cut back!

as the late great Richard Jeni said "95% of all men masturbate. the other 5%? no arms!"

there is no need to feel shame from masturbating to what stimulates you. accepting this will make things a lot easier.

It is not a bad habit. It is a normal, human thing to do. I've found that for myself, if I masturbate and satisfy myself completely then I don't think about it for a few days, but if I'm trying not to think about it then I end up wanting to do it constantly. But I'm physically female, so it might be different for you. Anyway, don't feel guilty about it, it's not wrong.

If it's the porn that's bothering you, I recommend you check out
Your Brain On Porn | Evolution has not prepared your brain for today's Internet porn.

It's really insightful and gives you a different perspective of the effects porn has on the mind.

However, I think masturbating is perfectly OK, as long as you aren't using it as a replacement for anything and it's not holding you back from certain things in your life. Many people find the sessions that don't require porn and rely purely on imagination to be more fulfilling and satisfying.

There's nothing wrong with masterbating. It's actually quite a normal human thing to do. Unless it's messing up your personal life, I don't see why you should stop.

Quitting masturbating is just like ignoring life's excitement. But, getting deeply addicted to it isn't healthy.I'm sad that I'm porn and masturbating addicted. So Mckey, let's learn how to control it.

These are only bad habits when you do them too much. Everything has an excess and a vice. What you need to do is find the golden mean. It's good to spend some alone time with your computer and your right hand now and again.
