If your hands spend a lot of time inside your underwear, then this article is for you!
Congratulations! The fact that you are here is proof that you have already completed Step 1. Masturbation is considered to be an important part of a man’s sexuality. People across all cultures indulge in the act of masturbation. Masturbation if done occasionally is considered healthy. However, the act of excess masturbation has its share of negative consequences as well as it leads to problems like chronic fatigue, testicular pain, back ache, etc. In addition to that, it can also cause other serious sexual dysfunctions like low sperm count, erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation.
Masturbating is not an easy act to stop but considering where you are at right now, it is the most important thing to do. It requires a lot of support from close ones, dedication, patience and great willpower. That being said, read on to know the steps.
Step 2: Make up your mind for good: Isolate yourself in a room with a blank sheet of paper and an empty mind. One by one, list down all the pros of daily masturbating on one side and the cons on the other. I’m pretty sure that the pros will outweigh the cons. Write down a quit date and keep the sheet where it is easily accessible to you. It might take hours to get this done but it will surely benefit you in the long run.
Step 3: One last time: This step is optional. Before you leave the room with the sheet, indulge in your last guilty pleasure. Cherish every moment because if you have really made up your mind, your hands won’t be going inside your pants for atleast some time.
Step 4: Identify and get rid of all your triggers: Get rid of all your masturbation triggers like porn websites, magazines, other explicit stuff, etc. The farther you are from your triggers, the faster you’ll get rid of the habit.
Step 5: Confide in your close ones: Giving up any form of addiction is a long journey and long journeys are best when you have your close ones with you. Let your best friend/partner know about your decision. Just a little support can make your journey a lot easier.
Step 6: Get busy and keep moving: Pick up the cricket bat which has been lying behind your cupboard for ages. Renew your gym membership. Call a friend and go for a morning walk. Line up your favorite TV shows on Netflix. Pile up activities that will take your mind off your cravings. Every time feel like masturbating, check off one item on your activity list and soon your habit will be long gone!
Step 7: Inform yourself: Read up on articles about masturbation, talk to your doctor about the changes you can make to your routine, make appointments with your guidance counselor and so on. For expert advice, you can always talk to a Counselor privately in less than 30 minutes on DocsApp.
Health is just an app away!
