Overdriven and Uncontrolled Sex Drive Needs Daily Masturbation
Tue, Aug 11th 2009
Please help me. It's a disease for me now because I have a daily routine of masturbating, sometimes without interest. It's a habit now like smoking. I'm a good student, age 25, but now, due to this factor, I am losing my concentration as well as memory, at least I'm feeling that. I believe in Yoga and prayer and still, I am unable to control my mind and to preserve myself. Please suggest how to reduce this type of daily habit. When I'm slightly free of work it just captures me as a ghost. After I am done it gives so much pain that I am concerned about my future. Please suggest some help for me.
