Gender: Male Location: The Darkest Corner of your Mind
When does fapping/sex become unhealthy?
So for the past month or so I've been limiting myself to one fap per week. I found that my mind was clearer, I was able to focus better, keep calm, etc.
This week has been finals hell week for me and I broke my commitment to the aforementioned routine.
Due to stress levels I simply wasn't able to circumvent, I caved to my "animal instincts" and have been back to watching porn, fapping daily, fantasizing/having lucid thoughts about girls on campus; Hell I even have the urge to walk into the restroom and pump one out right now.
I'm disappointed in myself, but I've lost the energy to get myself back on track.
One of the reasons why I'm a teetotaler is because I feel I would become an alcoholic if I started. I tend to handle stress okay up to a threshold, but once that point is passed, all hell breaks loose (as I described to be this week). I mean I guess I'd rather treat sex/jerking off as a stress coping mechanism over alcohol/drugs.
I'm turning into Quagmire...

Your Lord knows very well what is in your heart. Your soul suffices this day as a reckoner against you. I need no witnesses. You do not listen to your soul, but listen instead to your anger and your rage.
When you get carpal tunnel syndrome and friction burn?
Seriously though, probably when it starts having a notable negative impact on your other activities and daily life. Like if you half-ass a job that needs doing, or neglect something important, just for the sake of making an opportunity for sexual gratification.
