Im 16 I have been masturbating for around 3 years and Im trying to stop (have been for 2 years) but its so hard to. faculty.plts.edu/gpence/PS2010/html/new_catholic_encyclopedia_masturbation.htm
on that website it states:
First Paragraph: Because of the intense sensual pleasure and the strong drive of the sexual instinct, youths often become involved in a habit of seeking their pleasure before they realize its nature and its sinfulness. When they do realize its malice, the force of habit may already have become strong enough to lead to performance of actions without full deliberation.
Second Paragraph: At times, repressed conflicts of various kinds trigger a compulsive form of masturbation, so that, while aware of what he is doing, a person may be more or less irresistibly impelled to masturbate. If the impulse is truly irresistible, there is no moral fault; and in any case of truly neurotic compulsion serious fault is rare,
That first paragraph is pretty much what happened to me I have been to confession several times about it but as you can see in the second paragraph it says if it is irresistible and that is what it feels like to me I get like 5 erections a day and that only after school, so can I do it? (if i do it would be without porn or thinking impure thoughts)
Also would I be able to receive communion on sunday? and would i have to confess it?
